Like Water

The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to the ten thousand things
and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so
is like the Tao.

In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.
In action, watch the timing.

— Tao Te Ching
