Seek The Well, Not The Bucket Of Water

A poisoned well

can’t beget clean water;

a pristine well

can’t beget poisoned water.


A bucket of water

from a poisoned well

needs to be purified;

a bucket of water

from a pristine well

is effortlessly clean.


Having a clean bucket of water

is a pittance compared to

owning a pristine well.

Therefore, seek the well,

not the bucket of water.
