Easy To Praise

It is easy to praise Mozart or Beethoven but quite another to be able to play their music well on any instrument. It is easy to speak of the greatness of Picasso or Monet, but not so easy to take your own brush to the canvas and create a masterpiece. So too, it is easy to talk about and praise the Tao, but it is difficult to act with the Tao.
