Tao Te Ching - a message of Peace, of Simplicity, of Humility


Seventy Nine
<< Tao 78 | Tao 80 >>

After a bitter quarrel, some resentment must remain. What can one do about it? Therefore the sage keeps his half of the bargain But does not exact his due. A man of Virtue performs his part, But a man without Virtue requires others to fulfill their obligations. The Tao of heaven is impartial. It stays with good men all the time.
