The sage
 is detached, yet compassionate;
enjoys life, yet does not cling to it;
is a perfectionist, yet indifferent to success or failure;
 is a man of honour, yet avoids reaping honour;
ignores ethics and morals, but lives a life of the highest moral order;
 does not strive, yet achieves;
knows the answers, but prefers to remain silent;
 has the innocence of a child, but incredible inner strength....(Tao)
