Tao Te Ching: 17

Taoist-Painting

The great and good amongst the people

Know of its existence

The next love and praise it

The next fear and respect

The next defy and hate it

If you do not stand by your words

Who will stand by you?

Speaking with reluctance

Is a prize to be treasured

Accomplishing their duty

Completing their tasks

The hundred families altogether say:

“We ourselves

Are just so!”
