Tao Te Ching Chapter 30
Whoever relies on the Tao in governing men
doesnt try to force issues
or defeat enemies by force of arms.
For every force there is a counterforce.
Violence, even well intentioned,
always rebounds upon oneself.
The Master does his job
and then stops.
He understands that the universe
is forever out of control,
and that trying to dominate events
goes against the current of the Tao.
Because he believes in himself,
he doesnt try to convince himself,
he doesnt need others approval.
Because he accepts himself,
the whole world accepts him.
