“They Are, Therefore …”

“One sees them everywhere – businessmen hoisting themselves up on tiptoe, struggling desperately to succeed. They are overflowing with anxieties so there is no longer even any room for love of their fellow beings. They are, therefore, themselves unloved and regarded as being no longer human.”

…..– Chuang Tzu (c. 369 BC –  c. 286 BC)
