68

The best warriors are not warlike.
The best pugilists are not pugnacious.
The best contenders are not contentious.
The best overlords do not lord themselves over.

This is called going with the flow of nature—
It is the most effective approach toward governance,
Because it is aligned in accordance with Tao.
