Tao Te Wolves, Ch. 2.



If the Wolves are going to get to the top, it will be through a group of (very talented) players that communicate, read, and try harder than the rest. When done correctly, this philosophy comes off looking like magic. Witness: The Unicorn.

My only alteration to this translation from http://academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu/core9/phalsall/texts/taote-v3.html#2

is the switch from gender-specific to plural/general pronouns; I think it reads more clearly that way. Go Wolves.

When people see some things as beautiful
other things become ugly
When people see some things as good
other things become bad

Being and non-being create each other
Difficult and easy support each other
Long and short define each other
High and low depend on each other
Before and after follow each other

Therefore the Masters
act without doing anything
and teach without saying anything
Things arise and they let them come
things disappear and they let them go
They have, but don't possess
Act, but don't expect
When their work is done, they forget it
That is why it lasts forever
