|The Way is hidden deeply in all things.
|It is the treasure of the good
|And the refuge of the not-so-good.
|With skillful words you can be successful.
|With honorable actions you can be included.
|People may not be so good, but how can you deny them?
|Therefore, even though there are great jewels brought in by teams of horses at the coronation of the emperor and the installation of the three princes,
|This is not as good as staying where you are
|And advancing in this Way.
|Why did the ancients so value the Way?
|You can’t say that it was for seeking gain
|Or to have punishments to deter crime.
|Therefore it is the most prized in the world.
