1 The highest good is like water,Nourishing all things and not contending with them;2 Dwelling in loathsome places and thus coming close to Tao;3 Dwelling among the lowly;Great-hearted;Loving in relationships;Sincere in speech;Establishing order in government;Demonstrating ability in undertakings;Perfect in its timing.4 Only where there is no contention can there be flawlessness.
