The Book of the Right Way of Laozi – 79.

79.

A truce between enemies invites enmity. How can goodness prevail?

Therefore the sage accepts the inferior part, blaming nobody.

The good man does his duty. The vicious man taxes others.

The universal method is impartial. Impartiality furthers the good.

 

和大怨,必有餘怨;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。
