Bit by Bit - Chapter 6, Part 19

Trey Smith

Master Sang-hu, Meng-tzu Fan, and Master Chin-chang, three friends, said to each other, "Who can join with others without joining with others? Who can do with others without doing with others? Who can climb up to heaven and wander in the mists, roam the infinite, and forget life forever and forever?" The three men looked at each other and smiled. There was no disagreement in their hearts and so they became friends.
~ Burton Watson translation ~
Who could do these things? I suppose any of us could. Why not?
