    Thus it is said: The path into the light seems dark, the path forward seems to go back, the direct path seems long, true power seems weak, true purity seems tarnished, true steadfastness seems changeable, true clarity seems obscure, the greatest are seems unsophisticated, the greatest love seems indifferent, the greatest wisdom seems childish. The Tao is nowhere to be found. Yet it nourishes and completes all things.

  3. Matthew Vadum:

    Trump is a radical pragmatist who manages to come down on the conservative side more than the liberal side. He’s an opinionated, emotional man who is always full of energy. He enjoys being Donald Trump and all that entails. He sees things through the lens of experience and what he considers to be common sense. He calls ‘em as he sees ‘em. This leads to him changing his mind, as we’ve all seen, a lot. He’s a scrappy billionaire from humble Queens who, despite an Ivy League education, speaks with an accent some consider unsophisticated. He almost never talks about the Constitution or the Founding Fathers which infuriates many conservative intellectuals who think that he is beneath them.
