Tao Te Ching Chapter 27-9 No good man
So, a good man is the teacher of a non-good one. (Ch.27)
Don't judge anyone.
There is neither good man nor bad one.
Zen Master Dogen says:
"It is not that something evil does not exist. Just do nothing. It is not that something evil exists. Just do nothing." (Shoakumakusa 諸悪莫作, «Shobogenzo»)
Today's Tao sentence should be read along with tomorrow's.
«Do nothing» is the creation of Tao's cycle.
If you read just Today's sentence, you will make just a one-way street.

-To a certain generation of Japanese men, Mako Midori (on the left) and Meiko Kaji (on the right) have left a long-lasting trace in their memory. While Meiko Kaji has been given some special place in the heart of some men living outside Japanese islands thanks to Quentin Tarantino, fewer and fewer men remembers the name of Mako Midori because of the diminishing number of baby boomers in the archipelago.
