"Compassion is the finest weapon and best defence.
If you would establish harmony,
Compassion must sorround you like a fortress.

Therefore:A good soldier does not inspire fear;
A good fighter does not display aggression;
A good conquerer does not engage in battle;
A good leader does not exercise authority.

This is the value of unimportance;
This is how to win cooperation of others;
This is how to build the same harmony that is in nature."................................Tao.
