Ο ΣΚΛΗΡΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΑΛΥΓΙΣΤΟΣ ΠΑΕΙ ΣΥΝΤΡΟΦΙΑ ΜΕ ΤΟΝ ΘΑΝΑΤΟ (LAO TZU)

Ο άνθρωπος
όταν γεννιέται ,
είναι τρυφερός και λυγερός .
Όταν πεθαίνει ,
γίνεται σκληρός και αλύγιστος .
Τα ζώα και τα φυτά :
Όταν γεννιούνται ,
είναι τρυφερά και λεπτούτσικα .
Όταν πεθαίνουν ,
γίνονται σκληρά και ξερά .

 

Έτσι:
Ο σκληρός και αλύγιστος
πάει συντροφιά με το θάνατο .
Ο τρυφερός και λυγερός
με τη ζωή .

 

 

Γι’ αυτό:
Στρατός που ελίσσεται ,
δύσκολα νικιέται .
Δέντρο που λυγίζει ,
δύσκολα τσακίζεται .

 

Ακόμα:
Ο αλύγιστος και ογκώδης
στις επαφές του μειονεκτεί .
Ο λεπτός και λυγερός
πλεονεκτεί .

 
ΤΑΟ ΤΕ ΤΣΙΝΓΚ
ΛΑΟ ΤΣΕ
