TAO TE CHING - Chapter 73. Fate

Who is brave and bold will perish;
Who is brave and subtle will benefit.

It does not ask, yet all things answer to it;
It does not call, yet all things meet it;
It does not plan, yet all things are determined by it.

Fate's net is vast and its mesh is coarse,
Yet none escape it.
