The Tao flows everywhere, in all directions. All things depend upon it, but it turns nothing away. It is successful in its purpose, but it does not claim credit; it nourishes all things, but it does not claim ownership.
Always without desire it is home to even the most insignificant, and still it is not their ruler.
Therefore the wise person does not act out of the desire for personal success, yet he always achieves his goal.
(from Tao Te Ching, verse 34, translation by Robert Brookes)
