Storyboard Text

  • Chuang Tzu was fishing one day...
  • ... when two high officials from the Prince of Chu came up to him and said...
  • The prince would like your assistance in the administration of his government
  • Chuang Tzu says nothing and continues fishing.
  • He finally says something although still not looking up.
  • I have heard of a sacred tortoise now dead for 3 thousand years. Do you think it would rather be dead and honoured, or alive and wagging its tail in the mud?
  • The officals reply...
  • It would much rather be alive and wagging its tail in the mud!
  • Then go away! I, too, want to keep wagging my tail in the mud.
  • The officials leave, and Chuang Tzu continues his fishing.
