Tao Te – 62

the source of ten thousand things
a treasure for the good
a refuge for the bad

compliments can elicit honor
deeds can bring respect
assuring bad actors can reveal Tao

when a national leader is installed
or lower officials take their place
do not send extravagant gifts
remain still send Tao

Tao’s value
you find your treasure
are assured when erring
remain still in Tao
