    “The best (man) is like water. Water is good; it benfits all things and does not compete ith them. It dwells in (lowly) places that all disdain. This is why it is so near to the Tao. [The best man] in his dwelling loves the eart. In his heart, he loves what is profound. In his associations, he loves humanity. In his words, he loves faithfulness. In government, he loves order. In handling affairs, he loves competence. In his activities, he loves timeliness. It is because he does not competethat he is without reproach.”
