Chapter 51

51.1 The Way gives birth,
       virtue nurtures,
       things form,
       momentum completes.
       Therefore all beings honor the Way
       and value its Virtue.
51.2 The honor of the Way
       and the value of Virtue
       are not granted by anyone,
      but are always naturally so.
       So the Way gives birth and nurtures,
       makes grow and develops,
       completes and matures,
       builds up and breaks down.
51.3 It produces but does not possess;
       it acts without presumption,
       it fosters growth without ruling.
       This is called hidden Virtue.
