Chapter 34

1

The Tao in its regular course does nothing (for the sake of doing it), and so there is nothing which it does not do.

2

If princes and kings were able to maintain it, all things would of themselves be transformed by them.

3

If this transformation became to me an object of desire, I would express the desire by the nameless simplicity.

   Simplicity without a name
   Is free from all external aim.
   With no desire, at rest and still,
   All things go right as of their will.
