Eight

Supreme virtue is like water.
It nourishes the ten thousand things without effort,
and flows in places men shun.
It is like Tao.

Stand on solid ground.
Go deep into the heart.
Speak only what is true.

In friendship, be kind.
In governing, be just.
In enterprise, be able.
In action, watch the timing.

Do not contend with nature, and nothing will go wrong.
