The Tao does not act like a human.
They don’t expect to be thanked
for making life,
so they view it without expectation.
Heaven and earth are like a pair of bellows:
they are empty, and yet they can never be exhausted.
Work them, and they produce more and more
- there’s too much talking, it’s really better to stay quiet.
There are too many laws, when all you have to do
is to hold on to the centre.
