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.
