Chapter 66: After 9-11 a.m.

As a result of being subordinate,
the rivers and the sea may act as king
to 100 valleys according to the Tao.

To be Saintly, your first desires
must necessarily lay with the people,
in order to speak secondly of them;
Wanting to put the people first
sets a good example and is like a Queen.

To be Saintly, dwell first among the unimportant people.
Dwell early and do not do harm.

Yes, to be Worldly, laugh, refuse responsibility
without needing to loathe others.

By our shared failure to live up to expectations,
there is none in the world who may not take part in its struggle.
