When the work is done, and one's name is becoming distinguished, to withdraw into obscurity is the way of Heaven.
When the court is arrayed in splendor, The fields are full of weeds, And the granaries are empty. Some wear gorgeous clothes, Carry sharp swords, And indulge in food and drink; They have more possessions than they can use. They are robber barons. This is certainly not the way of Tao.
When things are murky, quiet down, and they will gradually clear. Proceed, and momentum gradually builds.
When the best leader's work is done the people say, "We did it ourselves."
When the people of the world all know beauty as beauty, there arises the recognition of ugliness. When they all know the good as good, there arises the recognition of evil.
