    Tao Te Ching 68

    One who excels as a warrior does not appear formidable;
    One who excels in fighting is never roused in anger;
    One who excels in defeating his enemy does not join issue;
    One who excels in employing others humbles himself before them.

    This is known as the virtue of non-contention;
    This is known as making use of the efforts of others;
    This is known as matching the sublimity of heaven.
