164. Other versions of Isan's saying:

'With phrases, without phrases, are just like wisteria leaning against a tree.'

'The sentence of being ["u"] and the sentence of nothing ["mu"] are just like a wisteria vine twining around a tree.'

'Expression and no expression are like vines clinging to a tree.'

Are these different versions saying the same thing?

Wansong comments: 'Those who accept words perish, those who linger over phrases are lost.'
