Extracts from Tao Te Ching
 
"Can you coax your mind from its wandering
          and keep to the original oneness?
          Can you let your body become
          supple as a newborn child's?
          Can you cleanse your inner vision
          until you see nothing but the light?
          Can you love people and lead them
          without imposing your will?
          Can you deal with the most vital matters
          by letting events take their course?
          Can you step back from your own mind
          and thus understand all things?
          Giving birth and nourishing,
          having without possessing,
          acting with no expectations,
          leading and not trying to control"
