The following is a partial quote of an ancient Chinese philosopher, Laotse (530 B.C.? - ?) and an explanation of that quote by the Chinese writer Lin Yutang from Lin's book, "From Pagan to Christian":
" 'Govern a country as you would fry a small fish,' that is, one should not continually turn it over, when the fish might become paste. The great art of government was to leave the people alone."
