I’m thinking about verse 68 of the Tao…

 

The best warrior

leads without haste

fights without anger

overcomes without confrontation

He puts himself below and brings out the highest in his men

 

This is the virtue of not confronting

of working with the abilities you have

of complying with the laws of Heaven

 

This is the ancient path that leads to perfection

 

…Verse 68 from “Tao Te Ching”

Lao-Tzu, translated by Jonathan Star
ISBN: 978-158542-618-8
