Wen Tzu - Verse 180

from Verse One Hundred Eighty
So something different is used for surprise tactics. Calm is a surprise for the frantic, order is a surprise for the confused, sufficiency is a surprise for the hungry, rest is a surprise for the weary. If you can respond to them correctly, like super-cession of a series of events, you can go anywhere successfully.
~ Wen-tzu: Understanding the Mysteries ~
As this is a passage from the last verse of the Wen Tzu, I will let it stand on its own. Before I put this series to bed, though, I will offer my reflections in a later post about our 6 month odyssey through this large volume of thought attributed to Lao Tzu.

This post is part of a series. For an introduction, go here.
