The way of the tao
I was always fascinated by the Tao De Ching (the way). This was written by Lao Tzu and I find the words so enriching and helps you meditate and practice moderation in life. This I find very useful:
The best soldier is not violent.
The best fighter is not angry.
The best winner is not contentious.
The best employer is humble.
This is known as the power of not striving,as ability in human relations,and as being in accord with heaven.
