The Wise Farmer ...
A farmer had only one horse. One day, his horse ran away.
His neighbors said, “I'm so sorry. This is such bad news. You must be so upset.”
The farmer just said, “May be so, May be not”
A few days later, his horse came back with twenty wild horses following. The man and his son corralled all 21 horses.
His neighbors said, “Congratulations! This is such good news. You must be so happy!”
The farmer just said, “May be so, May be not”
One of the wild horses kicked the man's only son, breaking both his legs.
His neighbors said, “I'm so sorry. This is such bad news. You must be so upset.”
The farmer just said, “May be so, May be not”
The country went to war, and every able-bodied young man was drafted to fight. The war was terrible and killed every young man, but the farmer's son was spared, since his broken legs prevented him from being drafted.
His neighbors said, “Congratulations! This is such good news. You must be so happy!”
The farmer just said, “May be so, May be not”

It is an old error of man to forget to put quotation marks where he borrows from a woman's brain!

I like commas. I detest semi-colons - I don't think they belong in a story. And I gave up quotation marks long ago. I found I didn't need them, they were fly-specks on the page.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing 
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”

This is the simplest way to express the idea of compassion.It can also mean love for your fellow humans, humanity, or living creatures. Sometimes this is extended to mean charity also.This is authentic , as told by my 3 Chinese friends.
