Ambition

"Those who wish to change the world according to their desire
cannot succeed;

The world is shaped by the Way;
It cannot be changed by the self.
Trying to change it,you damage it;
Trying to possess it,you lose it.

Some will lead, while others follow.
Some will be warm while others cold
some will be strong, others weak.
Some will get there where they are going
While others fall by the side of the road.

So the sage will be neither extravagant nor violent" ................. [Tao]
