LOVE

When all beneath heaven abides in love
we work the fields with song and dance
but when all beneath heaven forgets love
war-horses rage across the land

What misery is greater than a lack of contentment
and what greed greater than the passion for gain

holding contentment within
there is where the secret lies

after Tao Te Ching (6th Century BC)
