The Tao, Chapter 75

The Tao, Chapter 75

When people go hungry,
the governments taxes are too high.
When people become rebellious,
the government has become too intrusive.

When people begin to view death lightly,
wealthy people have too much
which causes others to starve.

Only those who do not cling to their life can save it.

— Translated by J. H. McDonald
