Zen whackiness

Chuang-Tzu says "The true sage pays no heed to mundane affairs... He adheres, without questioning, to the Tao. Without speaking, he can speak; and he can speak and yet say nothing. And so he roams beyond the limits of this dusty world.

Confucius says "That Chuang-Tzu, what a wild man!"

(Ok I put Confucius in modern idiom, what he's actually quoted as saying is "These are wild words", but I really get the feeling that Chuang-Tzu was considered quite the party animal!)
