Discard knowledge and cunning


Discard knowledge and cunning;
people will benefit a hundredfold.
Discard benevolence and righteousness;
people will return to kindness and love.
Discard cleverness and abandon profit;
thieves will be no more.

These three are inadequate,
so add to them:

Observe the plain and embrace the simple.
Diminish selfishness and lessen desires.
Discard learning and worries will disappear.
