Wise Words

"Do you think you can take over the universe and improve it?
I do not believe it can be done.
The universe is sacred.
You cannot improve it,
If you try to change it, you will ruin it.
If you try to hold it, you will lose it.

So sometimes things are ahead
And sometimes they are behind:
Sometimes breathing is hard
And sometimes it comes easily.
Sometimes there is strength
And sometimes weakness.
Sometimes one is up
And sometimes down.
Therefore, the sage avoids extremes,
Excesses and complacency.

Lao Tsu
Tao Te Ching
