Tao Te #59 ~ Moderation
all things in moderation
this is the key to regulation
whether governing oneself
or governing the nation
of this observation
begins with taking the first step
to live in DivineUnity
Better to start early
than begin later
the sooner you
the easier it is to get results
practice makes perfect
so the excellent musician
is willing to take the time
to refine each note
thus no goal is unreachable
and nothing is impossible
when someone is unlimited
then he can
lead the world
acting as a caring mother
who encourages with love
like the gardner cares for the roots
and the builder starts with a solid foundation
