Tao of the Day  
Praise creates rivalry.
Valuables create thieves.
Desire creates discontent.

Therefore, the sage nurtures accord by balancing extremes.

So understanding is guided by simplicity.
Ambition is tempered by humility.
And strength is restrained by compassion.

- Lao Tzu (3, trans. Grigg)
