Tao Te – 81

true words do not charm
charming words don’t reach truth
good cannot be contended for
those claiming right are not good
the sure have not learned
the learned know they know not

the learned do not settle for the graspable
the more they invest in others the more they have
the more that is given abundantly returns
the Tao of heavens does no earthly harm
the wise proceed without effort
