‘Born of the sky and earth, Immortal magically fused,
From the Mountain of Flowers and Fruit an old monkey am I.
In the cave of the Water-curtain I ply my home-trade;
I found a friend and master, who taught me the Great Secret. 
I made myself perfect in many arts of Immortality,
 I learned transformations without bound or end. 
I tired of the narrow scope afforded by the world of man,
Nothing could content me but to live in the Green Jade Heaven. 
Why should Heaven’s halls have always one master? 
In earthly dynasties king succeeds king. 
The strong to the stronger must yield precedence and place, 
Hero is he alone who vies with powers supreme.’
