“Love is the beauty of the soul.” ~ Saint Augustine
Tao Te Ching: Chapter : 25 : Beneath Abstraction
There is a mystery,
Ubiquitous and liquid,
The mother of nature.It has no name, but I call it “the Way”;
It has no limit, but I call it “limitless”.Being limitless, it flows away forever;
Flowing away forever, it returns to my self:The Way is limitless,
So nature is limitless,
So the world is limitless,
And so I am limitless.For I am abstracted from the world,
The world from nature,
Nature from the Way,
And the Way from what is beneath abstraction.
Lao Tzu (570-490 BC).

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia —
Vasek Pospisil of Canada advanced to the quarterfinals of the Malaysian Open on Wednesday by beating American qualifier Michael Yani 6-3, 7-5.
The 22-year-old Pospisil will next face either second-seeded Juan Monaco or wild-card entry Jimmy Wang.
“I have had a few good matches and hopefully I can keep my level,” Pospisil said. “I lost to Monaco in straights set early this year but whomever I play, it will be tough.”
Also, Nikolay Davydenko defeated Indian lucky loser Sanam Singh 7-5, 6-4, and Alex Bogomolov Jr. wasted nine break points before beating British qualifier Dominic Inglot 7-5, 6-3. Bogomolov will next meet top-seeded David Ferrer.

Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life,
and that happiness,
not pain or mindless self-indulgence,
the proof of your moral integrity,
since it is the proof and the result
your loyalty to the achievement of your values.
Ayn Rand born Alisa Zinov’yevna Rosenbaum;
She is known for her two best-selling novels,
for developing a philosophical system she called Objectivism.
Tao Te Ching: Chapter : 24 : Indulgence
Those who stand on their toes are not steady.
Those who take long steps cannot keep the pace.
Such people are surplus provisions and useless actions.
They are rejected by many.
Those who follow the Way do not remain with them.
Lao Tzu (570-490 BC).
