Chapter 30

By the Way aid those who rule men
Not by weapons to force the World
Its deeds tend to rebound
Where armies occupy
Thorny briars grow
The aftermath of great battles
Surely makes years of famine
The good are resolved and stop
Not daring to seize by force
Resolved but without bragging
Resolved but without boasting
Resolved but without arrogance
Resolved but not obtaining indeed
Resolved but without forcing
Creatures flourish then grow old
Therefore said not the Way
Not the Way comes to an early end
