The Way - Chapter 8 (By Lao Tzu)

The superlative manner is like water.

Water carries and channels everything on earth but never competes with them; Water stays at the lowest place where no one is willing to stay, so it is close to the way.


Behaving like water: staying low, keeping a deep and clear mind, having a harmonious and cooperative relationship with others, being honest and truthful, being capable and acclimating to the situation.


Water accommodates to everything but never vies with the other; therefore, it never worries about failings.
