The Tao Of Obama: No Fight, No Blame

OBAMAKAGANChipSomodevilla:Getty

The highest good is like water.?
Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive.?
It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.

In dwelling, be close to the land.?
In meditation, go deep in the heart.?
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.?
In speech, be true.?
In ruling, be just.?
In daily life, be competent.?
In action, watch the timing.

No fight: No blame.
