Confucius said, "May I ask what it means to wander in such a place?"In my mind's eye, there is no such thing as the Perfect Man or the Perfect Woman. For that matter, this is no such thing as Perfect Beauty or Perfect Happiness. Life is too messy for such things. In other words, these are ideals.
Lao Tan said, "It means to attain Perfect Beauty and Perfect Happiness. He who attains Perfect Beauty and wanders in Perfect Happiness may be called the Perfect Man."
