    59. Restraint

    Manage a great nation as you would cook a delicate fish.

    To govern men in accord with nature
    It is best to be restrained;
    Restraint makes agreement easy to attain,
    And easy agreement builds harmonious relationships;
    With sufficient harmony no resistance will arise;
    When no resistance arises, then you possess the heart of the nation,
    And when you possess the nation's heart, your influence will long endure:
    Deeply rooted and firmly established.
    This is the method of far sight and long life.

    60. Demons

    When you use the Way to conquer the world,
    Your demons will lose their power to harm.
    It is not that they lose their power as such,
    But that they will not harm others;
    Because they will not harm others,
    You will not harm others:
    When neither you nor your demons can do harm,
    You will be at peace with them.

    61. Submission

    A nation is like a hierarchy, a marketplace, and a maiden.
    A maiden wins her husband by submitting to his advances;
    Submission is a means of union.

    So when a large country submits to a small country
    It will adopt the small country;
    When a small country submits to a large country
    It will be adopted by the large country;
    The one submits and adopts;
    The other submits and is adopted.

    It is in the interest of a large country to unite and gain service,
    And in the interest of a small country to unite and gain patronage;
    If both would serve their interests,
    Both must submit.

    Sense of parabolic curve of music common practice from baroque and onwards. Renaissance more of butterfly zigzag fluctuating flight unwitting of comrade beeline. Music deliverers use 'song' for any piece of music because suggest singer stay in certain shape from start to end of something called 'song'. Beethoven could not possibly have written a song cycle. Yet Ode to Joy of ninth symphony defines concept of song as permanent stay in shape of singer once and for all. Hardcore comical serious matter. Rest of his music does not. Nobody single traverse his musical landscape. Only those Beethoven crisscross their paths.
