Chapter 42

The Way begat One
One begat two
Two begat three
Three begat the Many
The Many carry negative
And embrace positive
Blend energies to make harmony
What men hate 
Is to be solitary desolate unworthy
Yet kings and lords 
Are to be called these
So things 
Sometimes lose it and win
Sometimes win it and lose
What men teach 
I also teach
Those of force and violence
Do not gain their death
I will make this the basis of my teaching
