#Tao te Ching 62

The Way is the most honorable
Of all things. It is more valuable
Than riches to the virtuous;
It does good even to the bad.

Following The Way brings honor;
Even those who do not follow
The Way benefit from it.

Therefore when you see
All the trappings of high place,
Don’t wait for reward,
Since The Way is the highest
And the richest honor.

Why did the ancient ones
Prize The Way?
Because it can be got
By the seeking for it

And even the guilty
Can be forgiven in it.

That is why it is
The most valuable thing
Under heaven.
