phenomenal genius guy - Lin Yutang

Like LinYuTang, I am a reasonable nudist. He is a really pretty cool
and I think ready for a surge in popularity. A friend recently said she only skinny dips in her bath tub and it reminded me of this essay.



NUDISM has come to America, I am told. Let it come! I

just fail to see what harm it can do. I have been a nudist all

my life without my knowing it.

Now it should be clearly understood at the beginning that

I am a reasonable nudist, as against the doctrinaire and fa­

natic nudists, as I always am a reasonable vegetarian as dis­

tinguished from the fanatic vegetarians. Like all Chinese,

and following the old doctrine of the Golden Mean, I am all

for nudism at certain hours and in certain circumstances, in

the bathtub, for instance, but I am dead against going down

Broadway in the native garb my mother gave me. I can hon­
tell you that it is beautiful to feel naked in one's bath (that's all
I could find online) It's in the book "with love and irony"

His famous book is "The importance of
living". He is 'phenomenal genius guy' of mine, because for all his
smarts he still lives as he pleases. He wrote this about wisdom‘The wisest man is therefore he who loafs most gracefully.’

It's August, Ya'll


I know I am solid and sound,

To me the converging objects of the universe perpetually flow,
All are written to me, and I must get what the writing means.

I know I am deathless,
I know this orbit of mine cannot be swept by a carpenter's compass,
I know I shall not pass like a child's carlacue cut with a burnt
stick at night.

I know I am august,

I do not trouble my spirit to vindicate itself or be understood,

I see that the elementary laws never apologize,

I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
