Teaching Poem II

great sage

Benefit may attract you in the beginning

But Integrity will compel you in the end

Turn enemies into friends

Opponents into allies

Use the enemy to defeat the enemy

Use opposition to achieve harmony

Do not draw out conflict

Always look for the most enduring solution

Temporary measures

Are easily swept away

But build a solid foundation

And nothing will uproot it
