Take care at the end as at the beginning,
So that you may avoid failure.
The sage desires no-desire,
And returns to the places that people have forgotten;
He would help all people to become natural,
But then he would not be natural. End of TAO TE CHING - Chapter 64. Care at the Beginning & Care at the EndT.o.C .
