45



Image result for 45
Great perfection seems incomplete
But does not decay
Great abundance seems empty
But does not fail

Great truth seems contradictory
Great cleverness seems stupid
Great eloquence seems awkward
As spring overcomes the cold
Autumn overcomes the heat
So calm and quiet overcome the world

It is tranquility that overcomes heat
Action that overcomes cold
It is the yin that calms the yang
The yang that stirs the yin
When others lose their emotions
Hang on to yours
It is this clarity that allows one to act of the Dao
