Daodejing 34

The essence
of the way
is left,
is right,
is all around.

It gives all,
takes nothing.

It accomplishes all,
claims nothing.

It clothes all,
feeds all, yet
seeks no
power.

There it is, one
of the smallest
of things.

Because it
has power over
everything yet
claims no power,
it is the most
powerful thing.

Those free of themselves
may learn from this:

power comes
from . . .

not seeking power.
