Happiness is rooted in misery.
Misery lurks beneath happiness.
Who knows what the future holds?
There is no honesty.
Honesty becomes dishonest.
Goodness becomes witchcraft.
Human’s bewitchment lasts for a long time.
Therefore the sage is sharp but not cutting.
Pointed but not piercing,
Straightforward but not unrestrained,
Brilliant but not blinding.
– Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching
