The mind of man searches outwardly all day.
The further it reaches, the more it opposes itself.
Only those who look inward can censor their passions.
Being able to cease their thoughts, their minds become tranquil.
To tranquillize one's mind is to nourish one's spirit.
To nourish one's spirit is to return to nature.

- a Daoist poem
