if
your bravery
shows itself
as daring
you'll
die
if
your bravery
shows itself
in not daring
you'll
survive
two
braveries:
one
dangerous,
one
a blessing
heaven
hates
what
it hates
who
can
say
why?
even
the wise
find this
puzzling
the way
of
heaven
overcomes
without
trying to--
responding
without
speech,
persuading
without
a command,
acting
on
plans
while
seeming
inattentive
gigantic
is
the net
of the stars
the mesh
seems
too
thin
yet
nothing
slips
through
