Ruling a country
Is like frying a small fish.
You will ruin it with too much
Fussing and flipping.
Govern your country
Like the Tao governs creation
And negative ways cannot harm the people.
If evil has nothing to oppose,
It loses its power.
When opposites no longer harm each other,
Both are in accord with the Tao.
