Section 42 道生一，一生二，二生三，三生万物。万物负阴而抱阳，冲气以为和。人之所恶，唯孤﹑寡﹑不毂，而王公以为称。故物或损之而益，或益之而损。人之所教，我亦教之：“强梁者不得其死”，吾将以为教父。 The Dao generates the One. The One generates the Two. The Two generates the Three. And the Three generates all things. All things carry yin and hold yang， Pouring Qi to harmonize. The last thing people want is to be an orphan, a widower or an ill-provided, yet the rulers call themselves so. Therefore one might increase by decreasing, Or decrease by increasing. What others teach,I should teach also: “The rigid ones are not to have a good end.” I shall regard this as the fundamental of my teaching.
