From Today's Daily Tao - Tao Te Ching. 67 (Fragment)

"....I have three treasures which I hold and keep.
The first is mercy; the second is economy;
The third is daring not to be ahead of others.
From mercy comes courage; from economy comes generosity;
From humility comes leadership....."


"....The three most important qualities in life
are compassion,
or showing kindness and mercy to others,
or knowing what a thing is worth,
and modesty,
or knowing your place in the world.

Courage stems from showing
kindness and mercy to others.
Generosity starts with knowing
what a thing is worth.
True leadership begins with knowing
your place in the world....".

The first version is from the Fortune files. The second version is the Beatrice Tao.
