Tao Te – 58

gentle governance
opens neighborliness
opinionated rule
heightens suspicion

happiness is still found in misery
despair still lurks in enjoyment
the future is still undetermined

where honesty is subverted
the dishonest claim the virtue
where goodness is suspect
delusion long endures

a wise leader is clear without insistence
direct without disparaging
persistent without demanding
brilliant without blinding
