TAO TE CHING: 19

crazy_wisdom_by_expercf

Spurn holiness

Renounce cleverness

People will be a hundred times

Better off!

Give up humanity

Put away morality

People will revert to

Compassion and devotion

Abandon academia

Eliminate etiquette

Sorrow and anxiety

Will not possess the people

Undo artfulness

Discard profit

Thieves and bandits

Will no longer appear

These four are just embellishments

Not the essence

Therefore let them have

This to follow:

Became as simple as un-dyed silk

Embrace the purity of uncut jade

Selfishness dwindling

As your desires slip away
