What's in your head?

Recognise beauty and ugliness is born.
Recognise good and evil is born.

Is and isn't produce each other.

Hard depends on easy,
Long is tested by short,
High is determined by low,
Sound is harmonised by voice,
After is followed by before.

Therefore the Sage is devoted to non-action,
Moves without teaching,
Creates ten thousand things without instruction,
Lives but does not own,
Acts but does not presume,
Accomplishes without taking credit.

When no credit is taken,
Accomplishment endures.

Ku yu wu ksiang sheng - Lao Tzu

Ta tao fei
Great Tao rejected:
   Benevolence and righteousness appear.

Learning and knowledge professed:
   Great hypocrites spring up.

Family relations forgotten:
   Filial piety and affection arise.

The nation disordered:
   Patriots come forth.
