“The first requirement for learning the Way is hard work; then you need to learn to be a member of society, which means doing good and refraining from evil, building up character. When you have developed virtue and built up character, eventually you enter naturally into the Way.”

~ Zhang Hodao in Opening the Dragon Gate by Chen Kaiguo and Zheng Shunchao (translated by Thomas Cleary, p.6)
