When nothing seems new,
There is religion.
When nothing seems trustworthy,
There is the state.

Don’t limit the view,
Don’t regret the condition,
Don’t resist the course,
And you will never weary of this world.

When the smart man steps back,
There is no confusion.
When he teaches everything he’s learned,
There is nothing to be taught.
He has his, yes–
He has his, no–
