Frying Small Fishes...

老子 "道德經"

60 治大國若烹小鮮。

'Governing a country is like frying a small fish', so said Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu in 'Tao Te Ching' (verse 60). Implication, is of course, that you spoil it with too much poking.

Executives, executors, executioners, take note.

What an interesting descriptive!

Most at such management levels however would never want to be accused of laissez-faire
