Tao Te Ching: 8


Supreme goodness is like water

It greatly benefits The Ten Thousand Things

Without going against them

Dwelling places most people loathe

Therefore is it close to The Way

The best places to live are level

The best hearts and minds are fathomlessly deep

The best relationships are compassionate

The best words to speak are the truth

The best leadership is balanced

The best work is efficient

The best actions are well-timed

But most of all

Not going against nature

Keeps you free from error!
