Chuang Tzu put on cotton clothes with patches in them, and
arranging his girdle and tying on his shoes, (i.e. to keep them
from falling off), went to see the prince of Wei.
"How miserable you look, Sir!" Cried
the prince. "It is poverty, not misery", replied Chuang Tzu. "A
man who has TAO cannot be miserable. Ragged clothes and old
boots make poverty, not misery".
