Who are you? One of my favorite classic rock bands (The Who) once
asked this question in a song. Today for TUB I offer instead Verse 33
from Ralph Allan Dale’s translation of Lao Tzu’s famous book of wisdom
the “Tao Te Ching” as a tool that provides some sage commentary on the
subject. After all, are there many (any?) more important questions
that an evolutionary Man should be trying to answer? Chew & digest

Who Are You?
If you understand others, you are astute.
If you understand yourself, you are insightful.
If you master others, you are uncommonly forceful.
If you master yourself you have uncommon inner strength.
If you know when you have enough, you are wealthy.
If you carry your intentions to completion, you are resolute.
If you find your roots and nourish them, you will know longevity.
If you live a long creative life, you will leave an eternal legacy.
