#Tao te Ching 66

Rivers and seas drink from mountain streams
Because they are lower down. Just so
When it comes to leading—be humble—
Behind is actually before.

In this way leaders do not look proud,
And no one feels oppressed. In this way
Leaders are praised, not blamed.

Because these leaders do not push,
No one pushes back.
