Lao-Tzu #68: The best tacticians try to avoid confrontation.

68

 

The best warriors

do not use violence.

The best generals

do not destroy indiscriminately.

The best tacticians

try to avoid confrontation.

The best leaders

become servants of their people.

 

This is called the virtue of non-competition.

This is called the power to manage others.

This is called attaining harmony with the heavens.
