Daodejing 28

Know masculine energy.
Know feminine energy.

Thus become a flowing stream,
strong and full, containing
all of humanity, just like
a newborn babe.

Know the pure.
Value the impure.

Thus become a valley
strong and full,
just like unworked wood.

Know the light.
Value the dark.

Thus become a example,
strong and full, containing
the human, yet
becoming boundless.

When unworked wood
is worked, it becomes
many things.

When those free of themselves
are worked, they become leaders.

In the best working,
there is no sharpness.
