String Up The Preacher

To completely steal, rip off, copy with no regard for rightful ownership, the words of my hero Musō Soseki:

The sounds of four strings whisper the Buddha's sermons.
       Don't say that the deepest truths come only from one's mouth.
Millisecond by millisecond, stroke by stroke, countless myriad sutras arise
       one after the other,
            while in fact not a single word is spoken.
