Do you think you can take over the universe and improve it?
I do not believe it can be done
The universe is sacred
You cannot improve it.
If you try to change it, you will ruin it
If you try to hold it, you will lose it
So sometimes things are ahead and sometimes they are behind
Sometimes breathing is hard, sometimes it comes easily,
Sometimes there is strength and sometimes weakness
Sometimes one is up and sometimes down
Therefore the sage avoids extremes, excuses, and complacency.
Tao Te Ching
