Context

“is like frying a small fish.
You spoil it with too much poking. Center your country in the Tao
and evil will have no power.
Not that it isn't there, but you'll be able to step out of its way. Give evil nothing to oppose
and it will disappear by itself.
61 When a country obtains great power, it becomes like the sea: all streams run downward into it.
The more powerful it grows, the greater the need for humility.” source
