27.

A good tracker leaves no tracks,
A good speaker leaves no loose ends,
A good reckoner requires no counter,
A well-made door requires no latch,
A well-tied knot leaves no rope
Yet cannot be untied.

The sage is good at benefiting people:
Rejecting no one, declaring no one useless,
Helping so skillfully that nothing is thrown away.

This is called Illumination in Practice.

In this way the good are teachers of the not-so-good
And the not-so-good are lessons for the good.

Not to revere one’s teacher is a grievous error
And so is failing to cherish one’s student.

This is called Essential Subtlety.
