The Timber Man and the Tree (Old Taoist tale)

Shi the Timber Man was on a journey with his disciples. One day they came upon a town in which a mighty oak stood next to an altar. The oak was so large that  it could hide a whole ox - it was more than thirty metres in circumference. Many came to admire the tree. But the Timber Man did not care about it. "Master", said his disciples, "not since we began our journey have we seen such a fine material. And you do not even look upon it, but just continue walking. Why?" The Timber Man answered: "Because that tree is not good for anything. If you make a boat from it, it will soon sink. If you make a coffin from it, it will soon rot. If you make a pillar from it, it will be plagued by worms. No, that tree is useless. That is why it has been allowed to stay for so long." But on the way home from the city, one night the tree came to Shi in a dream. "What do you wish to compare me to?", asked the tree. "Do you wish to compare me to fruit trees of pears or oranges? When these trees have ripened, they are abused. The big branches are broken off and the small branches are cast aside. It is because they are useful that their lives are so short and painful. That is why I have always strived to be utterly useless. For this is what brings happiness. Had I ever been reaching this size if I was useful? And when it all comes down to it, what are we both other than things? And what may things decide about each other? What  do you, a mortal, useless human, know about a useless tree?"



Let every state be simple like a small village with few people. There may be tools to speed things up ten or a hundred times yet no one will care to use them. There may be boats and carriages yet they will remain without riders. There may be armour and weaponry yet they will sit collecting dust. The people must take death seriously and not waste their lives in distant lands. Let them return to the knitting of the cord. Let them enjoy their food and care for their clothing. Let them be content in their homes and joyful in the way they live. Neighbouring villages are in sight of each other. Roosters and dogs can be heard in the distance. Should a man grow old and die without ever leaving his village let him feel as though there was nothing he missed.

- Tao Te Ching, verse 80  

                                                 
       

                                                 

 

The chief advantage that would result from the establishment of Socialism is, undoubtedly, the fact that Socialism would relieve us of the necessity of living for others which, in the present condition of things, presses so har
dly upon almost everybody.

- Oscar Wilde, "The Soul of Man Under Socialism"

"We are nothing, you and I, except exotica in the Savage Garden. When the world of men collapses in ruin, beauty will take over. The trees shall grow again where there were streets. The flowers
will again cover the meadow that is now a dank field of hovels. The wild grass and the dense forest will cover up all trace of the once great cities until nothing remains. And the Savage Garden will cover the world."
 /Gabrielle de Lioncourt
