I have always been among those who believed that the greatest freedom of speech was the greatest safety, because if a man is a fool the best thing to do is to encourage him to advertise the fact by speaking. (我以為讓愚蠢的人自暴其醜, 正是最大之言論自由所以是最安全的主因)

Eternal Beauty of Purity 永恆純潔之美

Who can tell what a peacock will be
if stripped of the emerald color on its feather and eyes on tail?

Then, to all people's surprise,
right before us is an exhibit of the eternal beauty of purity.

If it was cursed once upon a time
for not recognizing the envy of "Hera"1 at the beauty of "Io",2
now it is blessed for its heart of mercy.

If it was punished once upon a time
for not offering an immortal host for the accommodation of the eyes of "Argus"3,
now it is blessed
for not compromising its compassion on the suppression of the powerful to the weak.

Without conscience,
extravagance of color is but the sign of injustice and
eyes of jade the symbols of fanatic loyalty to evil.4

So "blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."5


  1. In Greek mythology, Hera was the wife and older sister of Zeus, who was  the king of the gods. 
  2. Io was a beautiful priestess of Hera. She was seduced by Zeus.
  3.  Argus Panoptes was a giant with a hundred eyes. He was thus a very effective watchman, as only a few of the eyes would sleep at a time; there were always eyes still awake.
  4. The bright spots on male peacock are known as "eyes", and inspired the Greek myth that Hera placed the hundred eyes of her slain giant Argus on the tail of her favorite bird. Click <here> and <here> to see the  wikipedia illustration about the legend of the eyes of peacock in Greek mythology.
  5. Matthew 5, Bible.
