Quote by Chuang Tzu

All that is limited by form, semblance, sound, color is called object. Among them all, man alone is more than an object. Though, like objects, he has form and semblance, He is not limited to form. He is more. He can attain to formlessness. When he is beyond form and semblance, beyond this and that, where is the comparison with another object? Where is the conflict? What can stand in his way? He will rest in his eternal place which is no-place. He will be hidden in his own unfathomable secret. His nature sinks to its root in the One. His vitality, his power hide in secret Tao.

All that is limited by form, semblance, sound, color is call


This quote explains that while everything that has form, appearance, sound, and color is considered an object, humans are more than just objects. Although they have physical characteristics like objects, humans have the ability to transcend their physical form and reach a state of formlessness. In this state, there is no comparison with other objects, no conflict, and nothing that can hinder their progress. They can exist in their true timeless nature, concealed within Tao, the source of their vitality and power.
