Daodejing 63.


To act without action 

is the way of The Way;


to do without worry;

to savor without tasting;


to see the big as small,

and the few as many;


to repay injury with kindness.


The enlightened see difficulties

while all is going well and


little problems while 

they are still little.


The huge rises from the small;

therefore, the enlightened do

big things by doing small ones,


always with little effort.


Those who say “yes” quickly

seldom do  what they say;

those who see everything as easy

find themselves in big trouble.


The enlightened look at small things 

and have no worries about the large.
