On Going Forward

A young man came to Master Tze looking very miserable.

'Cheer up, son,' the sage said.

The young man shook his head. 'I have tried and tried to understand but I get nowhere.'

'The thing you must remember is that the important questions have no answers,' Master Tze told him.

'Then I must give up,' the young man said.

'Not at all. You must keep on going. It is a marvellous journey.'
