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
untrustworthy
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.

Summary:

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.
