The Book of the Right Way of Laozi – 18


When the great tao declined, human justice appeared.
As knowledge increased, so did falsehood.
When the six relations fell into dispute, there arose filial piety.
When the citizens of the country became confused and disorderly, bureaucrats appeared.

大 道 廢 , 有 仁 義 ﹔ 智 慧 出 , 有 大 偽 ﹔
六 親 不 和 , 有 孝 慈 ﹔ 國 家 昏 亂 , 有 忠 臣 。
