Act without doing;
work without effort.
Think of the small as large
and the few as many.
Confront the difficult
while it is still easy;
accomplish the great task
by a series of small acts.
The Master never reaches for the great;
thus she achieves greatness.
When she runs into a difficulty,
she stops and gives herself to it.
She doesn't cling to her own comfort;
thus problems are no problem for her.
yay! finally nation of the day!
Congrats, The Dictatorship of Bomf!

Yesterday’s Answer: What is The Boston Tea Party?
The Imperial Dominion of Arithei
Arithei should also have been given a correct response for The Hunchback of Notre Dame. A typographical error on our part led Arithei to believe that correct response should have been the author Victor Hugo.
Only telegrammed responses will be considered
NAMED AROUND 1616, IT’S THE WORLD’S FIFTH-LARGEST ISLAND & THE LARGEST NAMED AFTER A PERSON

What is rooted is easy to nourish.
What is recent is easy to correct.
What is brittle is easy to break.
What is small is easy to scatter.
Prevent trouble before it arises.
Put things in order before they exist.
The giant pine tree
grows from a tiny sprout.
The journey of a thousand miles
starts from beneath your feet.
Rushing into action, you fail.
Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project to completion,
you ruin what was almost ripe.
Therefore the Master takes action
by letting things take their course.
He remains as calm
at the end as at the beginning.
He has nothing,
thus has nothing to lose.
What he desires is non-desire;
what he learns is to unlearn.
He simply reminds people
of who they have always been.
He cares about nothing but the Tao.
Thus he can care for all things.
