DAILY SELECTIONS FROM LAO-TZU’S TAO TE CHING — AUGUST 10, 2019

Governing a large country
is like frying a small fish.
You spoil it with too much poking.

Center your country in the Tao
and evil will have no power.
Not that it isn’t there,
but you’ll be able to step out of its way.

Give evil nothing to oppose
and it will disappear by itself.

-Lao-tzu- (Tao Te Ching, verse 60, interpretation by Stephen Mitchell)
