Tao te Ching

73 He who is brave in being daring, acts recklessly and shall be killed. He who is brave but acts cautiously and kindly shall live. Of these two, one is beneficial while the other is harmful. What nature wishes, who may know what the reasons are? Thus, the saint is aware of the subtlety and profoundness of the Nature’s Way, So he takes great caution in practicing It. The Tao of Nature, Does not contend, yet easily wins. Does not speak, yet always responds. Does not summon, yet all things gather. Does not contemplate as if at ease, Yet all plans were devised perfectly. The Law of Nature is like a giant web, Although sparsely meshed, nothing can slip through.
