Excerpt

Whoever relies on the Tao in governing men doesn’t try to force issues
or defeat enemies by force of arms.
For every force there is a counterforce.
Violence, even well intentioned,
always rebounds upon oneself.
The Master does his job and then stops.
He understands that the universe
is forever out of control
and that trying to dominate events goes against the current of the Tao.
Because he believes in himself,
he doesn’t try to convince others.
Because he is content with himself,
he doesn’t need others’ approval.
Because he accepts himself,
the whole world accepts him.
Lao Tzu (Tao Te Ching) Fifth-century bce
Translated by Steven Mitchell
(Pronouns in the above as you care to use them.)
