Tao Te Ching, 8

Highest good flows like water.
Water's good helps everything without a fight.
It settles in everyone's ugly place
so it's close to the way.

Land is good for houses,
depth for hearts,
kindness for giving,
truth for words,
justice for government,
skill for work,
timing for action.

Don't fight over it and it won't get broken.
