The Best

 
The best, like water, 
Benefit all and do not compete. 
They dwell in lowly spots that everyone 
else scorns.
Putting others before themselves, 
They find themselves in the foremost place 
And come very near to the Tao. 
In their dwelling, they love the earth; 
In their heart, they love what is deep; 
In personal relationships, they love kindness; 
In their words, they love truth. 
In the world, they love peace. 
In personal affairs, they love what is right. 
In action, they love choosing the right time. 
It is because they do not compete with others 
That they are beyond the reproach of the world.
   – Lao Tzu
