291. Only a fool

Do not imitate.
Who imitates?
Only a brainless fool.

Do not hesitate.
Who hesitates?
Only a lifeless fool.

I do not imitate,
For I have none to imitate.
I do not hesitate,
For I have no need to hesitate.
God asks me to do everything secretly,
And I proudly do everything openly.
That's all.
