The Tao is Tao (99)

#99






                                                              99

                                      Should the victor delight in victory
                                  while the defeated suffer humiliation?
                                                   No, for the Tao
                                   cares for neither victory nor defeat
                                      Tke Taoist sage cannot delight
                                                        in glory
                                                which inflicts pain.
