Chapter 40

John Wu

The movement of the Tao consists in Returning.
The use of the Tao consists in softness.
All things under heaven are born of the corporeal:
The corporeal is born of the Incorporeal.


English/Feng

Returning is the motion of the Tao.
Yielding is the way of the Tao.
The ten thousand things are born of being.
Being is born of not being.


Robert Henricks

"Reversal" is the movement of the Dao;
"Weakness" is the function of the Dao.
The things of the world originate in being,
And being originates in nonbeing.
