"The sage does not accumulate for himself. The more he uses for others, the more he has himself. The more he gives to others, the more he possesses of his own. The Way of Heaven is to benefit others and not to injure. The Way of the sage is to act but not to compete."

into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away, and get out into the mountains to learn the news."
