The Master is a delightful tale of a young man who leaves his home in search. He finds a master and the pair journey through China. The cycle is completed when the man, no longer young, becomes a master and takes on an apprentice of his own. Doubts, temptations, experience, wisdom. Sublime, beautiful, inspirational.

"knowledge without wisdom is like a lamp you hold in your hand that cannot be lit. wisdom without knowledge is like a flame that goes out quickly when deprived of oil. only if one has both... will the lamp illuminate even the darkest night."
