Listlessly Govern

Listlessly govern

And the people are happy

Govern exactingly

And the people are restless

Bad fortune sometimes

Brings out the good

And good fortune, too,

May give rise to the bad

Who can say how things will end?

Perhaps there is no end

Sometimes down is up and up is down

Be not certain, be not severe

Thus the sage is firm but not sharp

Honest but not condemning

Straight but not upright

Bright but not dazzling

Tao Wisdom
