Too many colours blind the eye.
Too many tones deafen the ear.
Too many flavours dull the taste.
Too many thoughts derange the mind.
Too many desires weaken the heart.
The Sage observes the world
but trusts his inner vision.
He allows things to come and go.
His heart is open as the sky.
~ Lao Tzu (Tao Te Ching, c.12)
