Removed web-published translation[edit]

In the spirit of WP:RS, I replaced the web-published (identified source: http://www.ln.edu.hk/econ/staff/Xin%20Xin%20Ming.doc) translation excerpts of venerable Dr. Lok-sang Ho (Ph.D., Econ; see http://www.ln.edu.hk/econ/staff/cvlsho.htm).

The deleted excerpts (copied here, per WP guidelines) are the first verse:

The Way of the supreme is not difficult,
If only people will give up preferences.
Like not, dislike not.
Be illuminated.

and the last:

Words and language fail,
For reality is neither the past and nor the future.
And it is not even the present.

I replaced them with a translation by D.T. Suzuki.

In light of WP:RS, etc., I hope this replacement is understandable. If not, please discuss here. Thanks, Larry Rosenfeld (talk) 21:32, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
