Listen, Grasshopper | Daily Passages | In Our Elements

This one comes after listening to Fip. Today they featured movie soundtracks and a song with movie narration overlay got aired. It was a short passage from an US tv series that ran in the 70’s – Kung Fu.

I have three treasures which I hold and keep. The first is mercy, for from mercy comes courage. The second is frugality, from which comes generosity to others. The third is humility, for from it comes leadership. The boy responds, Strange treasures. How shall I hold them and keep them? Memory? The blind man answers, No, Grasshopper, not in memory, but in your deeds

p.s. apparently, this was written by Cheng Lin, 1949

p.p.s. the song is called A Children’s Game by Divine Strength
