Verse Two
* * *
Under heaven all can see beauty as beauty
Only because there is ugliness.
All can know good as good
Only because there is evil.
Therefore having and not having
Arise together.
Difficult and easy
Complement each other.
Long and short
Contrast each other:
High and low
Rest upon each other;
Voice and sound
Harmonize each other;
Front and back
Follow one another.
Therefore the sage goes about doing nothing,
teaching no-talking.
The ten thousand things
Rise and fall without cease,
Creating, yet not.
Working, yet not taking credit.
Work is done, then forgotten.
Therefore it lasts forever.
