Chuang Tzu Quotes > When an archer is shooting...

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest


When an archer is shooting for nothing, he has all his skill. If he shoots for a brass buckle, he is already nervous. If he shoots for a prize of gold, he goes blind or sees two targets - He is out of his mind! His skill has not changed. But the prize divides him. He cares. He thinks more of winning than of shooting- And the need to win drains him of power.
Chuang Tzu
