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.
