Brevity in speech is natural

23

Brevity in speech is natural.

Strong winds do not last all morning.
A downpour does not last all day.
What causes this?

If nature cannot cause them to last,
how much less could human beings?

Therefore those of the way identify with the way.
Those of integrity identify with integrity.
Those who fail identify with failure.

To those who identify with integrity,
the way brings integrity.
To those who identify with failure,
the way brings failure.
