When the Great Master leads
the people are unaware.
Second best the leader
who is loved.
Next, the leader
who is feared.
Last, the one who
is detested.


If the people are
so is the leader.
The Great Master
speaks with softness
but acts aloud,
When his work
is done the people say,
we did it ourselves.


A leader acts must collaborate her words. This is the authenticity of a leader. For the leader who says much with no physical agitation deceives herself and the people notices her flaws.
