Way thought for the day 16.3.2011

A truly good man is unaware of the good deeds he performs. Conversely, an evil man must try continuously to be good, and so inevitably fail, returning like the dog to its vomit, and a pig to the mire. A good man seems to do little or naught, yet he leaves nothing undone. A foolish man must always strive, whilst leaving much undone. The man who is truly wise and kind leaves nothing to be done, but he who only acts according to his nation’s laws may so be restricted by their poor quality, ignoring good justice, which is the purpose of law, leaving many things undone.
