What?

I’m studying right now for my English final tomorrow morning and one of my readings is from Chuang Tzu written by Chuang Chou. In it, there is a quote that goes like this:

There is a beginning. There is not yet beginning to be a beginning. There is a not yet beginning to be a not yet beginning to be a beginning. There is being. There is non being.”

And my room-mates are back, done with their finals and done for the semester.

Life can be cruel.

How do you pronounce chou? like "choo" as in choochoo train or "chow" like dog-chow?

So, did tzu do well? :D

@chutney,

I think it's pronounced chou, and i'm hoping i did well, haven't got my grade yet.

@kbodhi,

see if i wrote something like that no one would call it profound, they would think there was something wrong in my head.

@anonymous,

thanks much

@g,

We should. I'll review your book and you can include it in the book jacket - "A stupendous feat, this book has broken all barriers (imaginary and real), a must read."
