I Ching
by Martin Burke

Retreat

creative heaven and still mountain

retreat -and success

the mountain under the heaven
the superior man maintains propriety

                             *

danger -attempt nothing

he holds fast

a halted retreat -this is dangerous

success for the superior man-
failure for the inferior

friendly retreat

everything advances
