The Way of Heaven does not compete, And yet it skillfully achieves victory. It does not speak, and yet it skillfully responds to things. It comes to you without your invitation. It is not anxious about things and yet is plans well. Heaven's net is indeed vast. Though its meshes are wide, it misses nothing.
The highest excellence is like water. The excellence of water appears in its benefiting all things, and in its occupying, without striving, the low place which all men dislike.
All things in the world come from being. And being comes from non-being.
So, he who displays himself does not shine.
New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.
