What works reliably

Stop being holy, forget being prudent,

it’ll be a hundred times better for everyone.

Stop being altruistic, forget being righteous,

people will remember what family feeling is.

Stop planning, forget making a profit,

there won’t be any thieves or robbers.

But even these three rules

needn’t be followed; what works reliably

is to know the raw silk,

hold the uncut wood.

Need little,

want less.

Forget the rules.

Be untroubled.

-Tao Te Ching
