DO the Non-Ado.
Strive for the effortless.
Savor the savorless.
Exalt the low.
Multiply the few.
Requite injury with kindness.
Sow the great in the small.
Can only be tackled when they are easy.
Big things of the world
Can only be achieved by attending to their small
Thus, the Sage never has to grapple with big things,
Yet he alone is capable of achieving them!
He who thinks everything easy will end by finding
Therefore, the Sage, who regards everything as difficult,
Meets with no difficulties in the end.
