I let others argue

I let others argue and compete, and battle over ideas.
I remain still while each tries to prove one is right or strong or whatever moves their fancy.
At the end, we will all die and no one will remember what anyone was bickering about.


-Inspired by Han Shan (China, 7-8th c.)

  1. Love these words of absolutely pure wisdom.
    Aren’t all our arguments and opinions just our mental representations. Isn’t it strange we seek to get validation for them (through popularity “likes” etc) and fight others if their representations don’t agree with ours?
    Such a waste of energy….what does it matter?…….i could not agree more with you here. Now, wait is that an opinion too, a mental representation? 🙂
