Daodejing 81

 Sincere words are not fancy;

fancy words are not sincere. 

 

The good do not quarrel; 

the quarrelsome are not good.

 

Learning will never grasp 

the way of the creative universe—

grasping does not lead to wisdom.

 

Those free of themselves 

do not hold back—the more 

they give, the more they have. 

 

They give all and so 

possess everything.

 

The Way gives, 

never harming.

 

Those wise in the way 

never take, but only add.
