Yang Zhu, Chapter 6


YANG CHU said:

"Yuan Hsie lived in mean circumstances in Lu, while Tse Kung amassed wealth in Wei.

"Poverty galled the one, and riches caused uneasiness to the other.

"So poverty will not do nor wealth either."

"But what then will do?"

"I answer enjoy life and take one's ease, for those who know how to enjoy life are not poor, and he that lives at ease requires no riches."
