Tao Te Ching Chapter 43 | Lao-Tzu | Comparative Translations

The Way of Virtue





The softest thing in the world dashes against and overcomes the hardest; that which has no (substantial) existence enters where there is no crevice. I know hereby what advantage belongs to doing nothing

(with a purpose).


There are few in the world who attain to the teaching without words, and the advantage arising from non-action.

The gentlest thing in the world

overcomes the hardest thing in the world.

That which has no substance

enters where there is no space.

This shows the value of non-action.


Teaching without words,

performing without actions:

that is the Master's way.
