My work is permeated with this essence, but it is no translation of lao-tse. None of my metaphorical comparisons, such as that with the landscape, with the sea, with the clouds, are anywhere to be found in lao-tse's work. Neither has he anywhere spoken of Art, nor specially of Love. In writing of all this I have spoken aloud the thoughts and feelings instinctively induced by the perusal of lao-tse's deep-felt philosophy. Thus it may be that my work contains far more of myself than I am conscious of but even so, it is but an outpouring of the thought and feeling called up in me by the words of lao-tse.
