51 道德经:
道生之,德畜之,物形之,势成之。是以万物莫不尊道而贵德。道之尊,德之贵,夫莫之命常自然。故道生之,德畜之;长之育之;亭之毒之;养之覆之。生而不有,为而不恃,长而不宰,是谓玄德。
Dao De Jing:
(The operation (of the Dao) in nourishing things)
All things are produced by the Dao, and nourished by its outflowing operation. They receive their forms according to the nature of each, and are completed according to the circumstances of their condition. Therefore all things without exception honour the Dao, and exalt its outflowing operation.
This honouring of the Dao and exalting of its operation is not the result of any ordination, but always a spontaneous tribute.
Thus it is that the Dao produces (all things), nourishes them, brings them to their full growth, nurses them, completes them, matures them, maintains them, and overspreads them.
It produces them and makes no claim to the possession of them; it carries them through their processes and does not vaunt its ability in doing so; it brings them to maturity and exercises no control over them; - this is called its mysterious operation.

1 养德:
道生之,道生万物。德畜之,德,一也。一主布气而蓄养物形之,一为万物设形像也。势成之。一为万物作寒暑之势以成之。是以万物莫不尊道而贵德。道德所为,无不尽惊动,而尊敬之。道之尊,德之贵,夫莫之命而常自然。道一不命召万物,而常自然应之如影响。故道生之,德畜之,长之育之,成之孰之,养之覆之。道之于万物,非但生而已,乃复长养、成孰、覆育,全其性命。人君治国治身,亦当如是也。生而不有,道生万物,不有所取以为利也。为而不恃,道所施为,不恃望其报也。长而不宰,道长养万物,不宰割以为利也。是谓玄德。道之所行恩德,玄暗不可得见。
