Those who know don’t talk.
Those who talk don’t know.

Close your mouth,
Guard your senses,
Temper your sharpness,
Simplify your problems,
Mask your brightness.
Stay with the dust of the earth.

This is the quiet harmony,
Which cannot be loved,
Nor kept at arm’s length.
Which cannot be profited from nor harmed,
Valued nor debased.

It is beyond the cares of men.
It holds the deepest place in our hearts.
