Shantih: "The still point of the turning world."

                                Desperate and ignorant people
                                               search for peace
                          on perpetual waves of inconstant emotion
                                     or in the possession of things.
                                          The Taoist sage knows
                                                   peace is
                                             neither a condition,
                                               nor a possession,
                                               nor an emotion.
                                                   Peace is
                                                   emptiness
                                                       and
                                                     silence.
