The Book of the Right Way by Laozi – 79

79

The greatest truce must needs leave a residue of resentment,

But through pacification the situation can be improved.

Therefore, the sage takes the inferior part.

It is not his role to reproach people.

This is how righteousness exercises control.

Unrighteousness tries to control everything.

It is the cosmic method that controls everything.

Thus it supports the good man.

老 子:  「「道 德 經」」 :  第 七 十 九 章

和 大 怨 , 必 有 餘 怨 ﹔

報 怨 以 德 , 安 可 以 為 善 。
是 以 聖 人 執 左 契 , 而 不 責 於 人 。

有 德 司 契 , 無 德 司 徹 。
天 道 無 親 , 常 與 善 人 。
