Chinese Bound Collection

There are some books that deserve a classic presentation. Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, Machiavelli’s The Prince and the Tao Te Ching are just three titles in Amber’s exquisite series made using traditional Chinese book-binding techniques. Ranging from Chinese astrology to haiku, the series’ latest addition is a new edition of Confucius’s Analects. Philosophy or self-help? Spirituality or success? Either way, Confucius has wise and accessible things to say.

CHAPTER 21

The Origin of All Things

孔德之容,唯道是從。道之為物,唯恍

唯惚。忽兮恍兮,其中有象;恍兮忽

兮,其中有物。窈兮冥兮,其中有精;

其精甚真,其中有信。自古及今,其名

不去,以閱衆甫。吾何以知衆甫之狀

哉?以此。

Great Virtue takes its form from the Dao

And the Dao is vague and insubstantial

So vague so insubstantial and yet it has form

So vague so insubstantial and yet it has substance

So deep so dark and yet within is the essence of life

This essence is real and within it is Truth

Throughout time the name of the Dao is constant And through it I can discern the origin of all things

How can I discern the origin of all things?

From this; from the Dao.

28

CHAPTER 22

Restraint and Completion

曲則全,枉則直,窪則盈,敝則新,少

則得,多則惑。是以聖人抱一為天下

式。不自見,故明;不自是,故彰;不

自伐,故有功;不自矜,故長。夫唯不

爭,故天下莫能與之爭。古之所謂曲則

全者,豈虛言哉?誠全而歸之。

The incomplete becomes complete

The crooked becomes straight

The empty is filled

The worn out renewed

Small ambitions are achieved

Great ones are confounded

The enlightened man embraces the Dao and becomes an example for the world

He eschews display and therefore shines

He discards self and so becomes a model

He is self-effacing and therefore achieves recognition

He does not boast and so is celebrated

Because he avoids conflict

No-one under Heaven can find themselves in conflict with him

Who can doubt the truth of the ancient wisdom “The incomplete becomes complete”?

And in completion we return to our true state.
