Subject: [confucius-list] Mencius 7B.21: wild grass



This saying by Mencius is as beautiful as Confucius' and superbly translated
by Legge:

Mencius said to the disciple Kao, 'There are the footpaths along the
hills;-- if suddenly they be used, they become roads; and if, as suddenly
they are not used, the wild grass fills them up. Now, the wild grass fills
up your mind.'
