Kung Fu Wisdom : A Children's Game...

Master...
The Scissors cut paper. The Paper covers the rock. The Rock crushes the scissors.

Student...
Is not playing a children's game a waste of time?

Master...
Children's games teach - sometimes more than books. Come, instruct an old man, and yourself.

Student...
Rock crushes scissors.

Master...
Look beyond the game, as you look beneath the surface of a pool to see its depths.

Student...
Each in turn conquers the other.
There is no stronger or weaker.

Master...
This is the harmony of nature, and not a waste of time.

Student...
I will treasure this lesson, master.

Master...
I have three treasures which I hold and keep.
The first is Mercy; for from Mercy comes Courage.
The second is Frugality; from which comes generosity to others.
The third is Humility; for from it comes leadership.

Student...
What strange treasures.
How shall I hold and keep them? In memory?

Master...
No, not in your memory, but in your Deeds.

Blessings
Richard
