Tao Te Ching
From "The Perennial Way" - A Translation of Lao Tsu's Tao Te Ching by Bart Marshall
06 June 2011
When a sage governs, people barely notice.
Lesser rulers are praised and loved.
Lesser still are feared and obeyed.
The least are ridiculed and despised.
Trust is earned by trusting.
The sage uses words sparingly.
His work is done without fanfare.
People say: “It happened by itself.”
