Lao-tzu

 

上士聞道 勤而行之,

中士聞道 若存若亡,

下士聞道 大笑之. 不笑, 不足以爲道.

 

 

 

When a person of high quality hears Do(道, Way)

he or she practices it diligently,

when a person of intermediate quality hears Do

he or she leaves it or forgets it,

and when a person of low quality hears Do

he or she laughs at it.

If it isn’t laughed at, it is not sufficient to be Do.
