    • I am not sure whether the statute comes from philosopher LaoTze, have to check out. It’s a bit difficult to show nothingness with physical forms, I suppose.

    • LaoTze is who we call Lao Tseu in French. He founded the way of the Tao, right? There was a quote I read in Grad school that changed my life. It comes from the Tao. πŸ™‚
      God, there are so many things to learn and so little time…

    • A good education. πŸ™‚ We used to do that too, though our “sources” are (much) more recent. First – readable – French poems date back to the 1400’s. AD!

    • Just like many western schools would teach Homer etc of the Greek philosophers. The Chinese have poems which dates back thousands of years and many of the poems were written in the Tang Dynasty – at least 200 of which are still popular.

    • Tang dynasty? 600-900 AD? Wow. We don’t have anything readable form that period. It was between the fall of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Frank Empire. Not much was written.
