"Raw Silk and Uncut Wood" Lao Tzu, Tao Te ChingFri, August 18, 2006 - 5:12 PM
It'll be a hundred times better for everyone.
Stop being altruistic, forget being righteous,
people will remember what family feeling is.
Stop planning, forget making a profit,
there won't be any thieves and robbers.
But even these three rules
Needn't be followed, what works reliably
is to know the raw silk,
hold the uncut wood.
Forget the rules.
