Zhuangzi, The Monist
Bai Juyi 772-846

Zhuangzi levels all things
And reduces them the same Monad.
But I say that even in their sameness
Difference may be found.
Although in following the promptings of their nature
They display the same tendency,
Yet it seems to me that in some ways
A phoenix is superior to a reptile!
 
Dú Zhuāngzǐ
Bái Jūyì 772-846

Zhuāngshēng qíwù tóng guīyī,
Wǒ Dào tóng zhōng yǒu bùtóng.
Suí xìng xiāoyáo suī yīzhì,
Luánhuáng zhōng xiào shèng shéchóng.
