The Tao does not act, thus everything is done.
If a leader is in accord with it,
all things will naturally develop.
Afterwards, if old habits arise,
suppress them by remembering the uncarved block of wood.
The natural state of the nameless will truly free people from desire,
and the world will naturally right itself.
-Lao-tzu- (Tao Te Ching, verse 37, interpretation by Robert Brookes)
