The Tao doesn’t take sides;
it gives birth to both good and evil.
The Master doesn’t take sides;
she welcomes both saints and sinners.
The Tao is like a bellows:
it is empty yet infinitely capable.
The more you use it, the more it produces;
the more you talk of it, the less you understand.
Hold on to the center.
— Lao-tse, Tao Te Ching, Verse 5 (via tao-a-day
“Sages raise objections first, then cooperate afterwards; ordinary people cooperate first, then raise objections later.”
