Daodejing 67.

 

Everyone knows The Way 

of the creative universe 

is true, yet calls its 

teachings impossible. 

 

Impossibility is its truth. 

 

I have three treasures—

love, moderation, humbleness. 

 

With love I can be courageous; 

with moderation I can be generous;

with humbleness I can live 

without expectations. 

 

Too often we forget love

and act only courageously.

 

Too often we forget moderation

and give only generously.

 

Too often we forget humbleness 

and act only honorably. 

 

The outcome is death. 

 

Love will be victorious,

even in battle; even in battle

love is the best protection.
