"Suppose you scrub your ethical skin until it shines,
but inside there is no music,
then what?"

—Kabir (the 15th Century Sufi poet) as translated by Robert Bly

Fantastic thouht, Michael, reminds me of that other more biblical quote: I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

It's almost the opposite in meaning but to me characterises similar sentiments. Thanks
