"It should be mentioned, however, that there is an obvious way in which Kang does not really fit a Taoist description: he obviously writes well, and thus has an eloquence about him that might confound a strict interpretation of Taoist virtues...."

I don't know---even though "true words are not eloquent, eloquent words are not true", Lao Tzu and Chuang Tzu were fairly "eloquent", weren't they? I think there's a kind of elegance inherent in simplicity :)

Yes, Imugi, that is one of the wonderful paradoxes of these books: they are beautifully written critiques of eloquence!
