8 道原:
老子曰:夫得道者,志弱而事强,心虚而应当。志弱者柔毳安静,藏于不取,行于不能,澹然无为,动不失时,故“贵必以贱为本,高必以下为基。”托小以包大,在中以制外,行柔而刚,力无不胜敌无不陵,应化揆时,莫能害之。欲刚者必以柔守之,欲强者必以弱保之,积柔即刚,积弱即强,观其所积,以知存亡。强胜不若己者,至于若己者而格,柔胜出于己者,其力不可量,故“兵强则灭,木强则折。”革强则裂,齿坚于舌而先毙,故“柔弱者生之干也,坚强者死之徒。”先唱者穷之路,后动者达之原。夫执道以耦变,先亦制后,后亦制先,何即不失所以制人,人亦不能制也。所谓后者,调其数而合其时,时之变则,间不容息,先之则太过,后之则不及,日回月周,时不与人游,故圣人不贵尺之璧,而贵寸之阴,时难得而易失。故圣人随时而举事,因资而立功,守清道,拘雌节,因循而应变,常后而不先,柔弱以静,安徐以定,大坚固不能与争也。
