Tao Te Ching

Eighteen



When the great Tao is forgotten,
goodness and piety appear.
When the body's intelligence declines,
cleverness and knowledge step forth.
When there is no peace in the family,
filial piety begins.
When the country falls into chaos,
patriotism is born.


 
  The Tao Te Ching was written by Lao-Tzu translation by S. Mitchell
