TAO TE CHING - Chapter 61. Submission

A nation is like a hierarchy, a marketplace, and a maiden.
A maiden wins her husband by submitting to his advances;
Submission is a means of union.

It will adopt the small country;
When a small country submits to a large country
It will be adopted by the large country;
The one submits and adopts;
The other submits and is adopted.

And in the interest of a small country to unite and gain patronage;
If both would serve their interests,
Both must submit.
