But without clarity, the sky tears; Without stability, the earth splits; Without strength, the mountain collapses; Without water, the riverbed cracks; Without life, nature is barren; And without support, the rulers fall. So rulers depend upon their subjects, The noble depend upon the humble; And rulers call themselves orphaned, lonely or disabled, To win their peoples’ support. Wholeness gains no support.
