The Greatest Teacher


And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything. William Shakespeare said this long ago. I personally find most of his works to be trying to read, but how true he was with this quote. The greatest teacher is not found wearing a robe in a faraway monastery in the rooftop of the world, or at the top of a best-seller list author, but in everything in nature. Those who listen and learn are the sages walking the earth, the true scholar of the Dao.
