Daodejing 70

My words are easy
to understand, easy
to practice, yet so
few practice them.

My words originate
in the origin—
the motions of
the universe itself—

yet so few follow
my words, so few
follow the way.

Those who know
are rare, a treasure.

Outside, they wear
rags, but inside—there
is precious jade.
