from the tao




If you understand others, you are astute.

If you understand yourself, you are insightful.


If you master others, you are uncommonly forceful.

If you master yourself, you have uncommon inner strength.


If you know when you have enough, you are wealthy.

If you carry your intention to completion, you are resolute.


If you find your roots and nourish them, you will know longevity.

If you live a long creative life, you will leave an eternal legacy.


The Tao Te Ching, Verse 33, translation by Ralph Alan Dale
