These Things 2



The thing that I do is praiseworthy.
The thing that I do is contemptible.
The thing that I don't do is praiseworthy.
The thing that I don't do is contemptible.
The thing that you do, too.
The thing that you don't do, too.
What these things are not is inevitable.
What these things are not is necessary.
The one who does such things
is merely the one who does such things.
The one who does not do such things
is merely the one who does not do such things.
I must set aside what I do and don't do
and seek myself elsewhere.  Or not seek.
