The Tao Is Tao (88)

#88





                                                                            88

                                                               When unable to avoid
                                                  people who delight in the grief of others,
                                                                      the Taoist sage
                                                                does what comes next,
                                                                          knowing
                                                                 his silence is stronger
                                                                  than their brashness.
