HE who is brave in daring will be killed;
He who is brave in not daring will survive.
Of these two kinds of bravery, one is beneficial,
while the other proves harmful.
Some things are detested by Heaven,
But who knows the reason?
Even the Sage is baffled by such a question.
To get responses without speaking,
To induce the people to come without summoning,
To act according to plans without haste.
Sparse-meshed it is, and yet
Nothing can slip through it.
