Tao Te Ching Chapter 37

The Tao never does,

Yet through it everything is done.

If princes and dukes can keep the Tao,

the world will of its own accord be reformed.

When reformed and rising to action,

Let it be restrained by the Nameless pristine simplicity.

The Nameless pristine simplicity

Is stripped of desire (for contention).

By stripping of desire quiescence is achieved,

And the world arrives at peace of its own accord.
