53. The Master said, “An ancient saying goes, ‘The mind should be as deep as the deep-blue sea; the mouth should be as heavy as Mount Kunlun.’ Hence, in using your mind, let your mind be so deep that it is unfathomable like the deep ocean; guard your mouth by keeping it as heavy as Mount Kunlun. As a person grows in greatness within himself, the extent of that person’s mind becomes unfathomable. A small vessel is soon filled and overflows; but a large vessel always has room for more.”
