    “Layman P’ang was sitting in his thatched cottage one day. “Difficult, difficult, difficult,” he suddenly exclaimed, “[like trying] to scatter ten measures of sesame seed all over a tree!”

    “Easy, easy, easy,” returned Mrs. P’ang, “just like touching your feet to the ground when you get out of bed.”

    “Neither difficult nor easy,” said Ling-chao. “On the hundred grass-tips, the Patriarch’s meaning.””
