tao te ching ☯️ chapter 78


under heaven is as

soft and yielding as water.

Yet for attacking the hard and

strong, nothing can

compare with



The weak

overcomes the strong.

The soft overcomes the hard.

Everyone knows this, but none

have the ability to

practice it.



the sage says: one who

accepts the dung of the nation

becomes the master of soil and sustenance.

One who deals with the evils of the

nation becomes king under



True words seem paradoxical.
