The New Dao: Mystery and Pure Conversation

The New Dao: Mystery and Pure Conversation by Tsai Chih Chung

A compilation of various stories, anecdotes and sayings over many years.  A man who goes home to enjoy all his old favorite foods, and thereby escapes the dynasty's downfall -- but his motive really was what he said it was; various friendships, such as a man so heartbroken by his friend's death that when he discovers his zither is out of tune, he can't complete the formalities of the visit;  a man who wouldn't sell a problem horse because that would just make it someone else's problem; and many more.
