from: 366 readings from Taoism and confucianism

Those in the prime of their beauty are proud; those in the prime of their strength are impetuous. So you cannot talk to people in their prime about the Way. People with no white streaks in their hair have difficulty understanding the Way, and even greater difficulty following it. If people are proud and impetuous, they are interested only in the acquisition of wealth, power and status.
Wise people are happy to give authority to others. So their capacity does not diminish with age; nor is it limited by the limits of their own knowledge. Top of page
