Tao Te Ching Chapter 56-2 One who says
One who says does not know. (Ch.56)
These days, people talk too much.
Once silence was golden, but now it is something negative.
We don't need any decoding for this maxim.
Too much analysis will lead us to complications.
Lao Tzu doesn't talk much.

☞«Drama and Desire: Japanese painting from the Floating World» is a beautiful collection of Japanese painting, which includes Hokusai and Utamaro. Desire is sacred in the country of the rising sun. Nevertheless, sometimes desire, which the Japanese word "iro (=color)" expresses, can be prohibited. Yukio Mishima plays with the word "Kinjiki", which originally means the colors which common people were not allowed to wear in the old days. The word can be interpreted as forbidden desire.
