something most highly honored

russell bramlett


In the world,

something is most highly

honored, and it is not power and position;

something is most highly valued, and it is not gold

and jade; something has the most longevity,

and it is not a lifetime of a

thousand years. 


To return your heart to its

original nature is most

highly honored.


The Huainanzi
