658. Look at their stubbornnessLook at this stubborn shore!
It refuses to receive my boat.
Look at this stubborn boat!
It refuses to be a little more
Devoted to the shore.
Look at these stubborn passengers!
They just refuse to thank
The boat and shake hands with the shore.
Alas, I am lost in the confusion
Sri Chinmoy, The Wings of Light, part 14, Agni Press, 1974
