#Tao Te Ching 50

We come forth and live;

We enter again and die.

 

Out of every ten, three are

Out for their own lives,

And three are out to kill.

 

Then there are another three

Who wish to serve life but

Spread death instead. Why?

Because they try too hard. 

 

But one in ten—that one goes

Without danger, without

Protection or weapon

 

Because no sharp edges

May enter. Why? Because

That one does not serve death.
