The Book of the Right Way of Laozi -73

73

Rashness kills,
While those who avoid rashness prosper.
Both of these may do good or do harm.
The world eliminates evil. Who understands the reason of it?
Nature follows the path of least resistance, but the good carries the victory:
Silent yet responsive;
Aloof yet cooperative;
Righteous yet cunning.
The cosmic web is vast,
All-encompassing, self-perpetuating; everything is accounted for.

勇於敢則殺,勇於不敢則活。此兩者,或利或害。天之所惡,孰知其故?是以聖人猶難之。天之道,不爭而善勝,不言而善應,不召而自來,繟然而善謀。天網恢恢,踈而不失。
