Tao of the Day  
What is at rest is easy to hold.
What manifests no omens is easily forestalled.
What is fragile is easily shattered.
What is small is easily scattered.

Tackle things before they have appeared.
Cultivate peace and order before confusion and disorder have set in.

He who fusses over anything spoils it.
He was grasps anything loses it.

In handling affairs, people often spoil them just at the point of success.
With heedfulness in the beginning and patience in the end, nothing will be spoiled.

- Lao Tzu (64: Wu)
