Daodejing 69

It’s wiser to be
a guest than a host.

It’s wiser to retreat a foot
than advance an inch–

this is advancing
without aggression;

this is vigilance
without weapons;

this is victory
without fighting.

No disaster is greater
than thoughtless violence.

Doing just the opposite
wins every time.
