Wen the Dreamer

庄子一天做梦,梦见自己变成了一只蝴蝶。醒来之后他发现自己还是庄子,于是他不知道自己到底是变成庄子的蝴蝶呢,还是梦中变成蝴蝶的庄子。

One day, the Master dreamt he had become a butterfly; on waking, he found that he was still himself, unchanged, so that he no longer knew whether he was a butterfly who had turned into the Master, or the Master who had turned into a butterfly.

Stare long enough at a mirror, and you begin to doubt whether you are the image or the self; study long enough into a book, quote from it and copy it often enough, and you begin to wonder whose thoughts move within this mind, whose words are speaking.
