That which is at rest is easily restrained, that which has not yet appeared is easily prevented. The weak is easily broken, the scanty is easily scattered.
Consider a difficulty before it arises, and administer affairs before they become disorganized. A tree that it takes both arms to encircle grew from a tiny rootlet. A pagoda of nine stories was erected by placing small bricks. A journey of three thousand miles begins with one step (Tao Te Ching 64:1-2, Goddard’s translation).
So I hope you’ll take this opportunity to reflect, and perhaps you will have a flash of insight in your bathroom (or in your faith, or in your worldview), if you have the courage to ask what lies beneath.
