Daodejing 36

A breathImage

out 

implies 

a breath in.

 

Weakening implies strength. 

 

What is torn down 

first must be 

raised up. 

 

Whatever is taken 

must have been given.

 

This is the subtlety 

in the obvious. 

 

The soft—the weak—

overcomes the strong.

 

Fish thrive in the depths.

 

Nations thrive by keeping 

their strengths hidden.
