Wisdom from the Tao Te Ching

One who knows others is intelligent

One who knows himself is enlightened

 

One who conquers others is strong

One who conquers himself is all-powerful

 

One who approaches life with force surely gets something

One who remains content where he is surely gets everything

 

One who gives himself to his position surely lives long

One who gives himself to Tao surely lives forever”

 

– Verse 33 of the Tao Te Ching
