He who studies, accumulates every day.
He who follows the Way, diminishes every day.

Diminish, and diminish again,
until you achieve action without force.
Take action without force,
and there is nothing that cannot be accomplished.

If you would change the world,
genuinely relinquish your self-interest:
by clinging to your self-interest,
you become insufficient to change the world.

 


chapter notes:

The text of this chapter is a straightforward translation; even the chapter title does not particularly redirect its intent.
