Yin and Yang

Being and non-being produce each other
Difficult and easy complete each other
Long and short contrast each other
High and low distinguish each other
Sound and voice harmonize each other
Front and back follow each other
In order to contract
It is necessary first to expand
In order to weaken
It is necessary first to strengthen
In order to destroy
It is necessary first to promote.
In order to grasp,
It is necessary first to give
To be bent is to become straight
To be empty is to be full
To be worn out is to be renewed
To have little is to possess

Written by Lao Zi, Taoist, 5th century BC.
Taoism is not a religion, nor a philosophy.
It is a 'Way of life'. Tao is the natural order of things.

Yin and Yang can be divided down to ten, and then further down to one hundred, to a thousand, to ten thousand, and to a number so great as defies calculation; yet in essence all these are but ONE.
