Tao Te – 22

and yield and overcome and
and bend and straighten and
and empty and fill and
and age and birth and
and enough and flourish and
and abound and bewilder and

thus the wise embrace background
set a model for any who would notice
without entertaining
they shine
without taking advantage
they become a standard
without a boast
they are recognized
without bragging
they do not have to backtrack
without demanding their due
no one quarrels with them

thus ancients affirm
and yield and overcome and
what say you

be with one
all will come
