Tao Te – 51

things are received from Tao
nourished by integrity
formed in time
shaped by circumstance
respect of arising and presence is given
undemanded respect is given
a natural nature of things

then thousand things arise
nourished in their hunger
nurtured with care
comforted with shelter
protected while vulnerable
claimed before productive
credited before accomplishing
these are primal virtues
