Daodejing 31

Weapons are instruments of death.

ImageTherefore, living things hate them.

 

Followers of The Way 

of the creative universe 

avoid them except out of

necessity, preferring calm. 

 

Avoid victory by force; 

violence leads 

only to violence. 

 

A killer is never prized long. 

 

Celebrate a victory 

as if it were a funeral.
