"Ballyhoo" (大张旗鼓)

Liu Dao

It just so happens that there aren’t many people that can do what I do. This is why my time is valuable. If you would like to know the truth, it isn’t so much that others are incapable of doing what I do—more that they don’t believe that they can do it themselves. Humans tend to find a certain comfort in putting faith in others. People live and breathe in the throws of what I do. I read about these things in the papers. Or maybe I hear about them on television. I’m not sure. The point is great progress means leaving people behind. It isn’t so much an unfortunate reality as it is the reality. The logical conclusion of business is killing. It boils down to the simple fact that I would rather lie here than lay around waiting to become a victim.
