Qui prend les rênes du Tao antique dominera les contingences actuelles. Connaître ce qui est l’origine, c’est saisir le point nodal du Tao. XV Les sages parfaits de l’Antiquité étaient si fins, si subtils, si profonds et si universels qu’on ne pouvait les connaître.

Si je n’entreprends aucune affaire, le peuple s’enrichit de lui-même. Si je ne nourris aucun désir, le peuple revient de lui-même à la simplicité. LVIII Lorsque le gouverneur est indulgent, le peuple reste pur. Lorsque le gouverneur est pointilleux, Le peuple devient fautif. Le bonheur repose sur le malheur ; le malheur couve sous le bonheur. Quel en est le terme ? Le monde n’a pas de normes, car le normal peut se faire anormal et le bien peut se transformer en monstruosité.
