Quotes From The Tao Te Ching #1

17 Acting Simply

True leaders

are hardly known to their followers. 

Next after them are the leaders

the people know and admire;

after them, those they fear;

after them, those they despise.


To give trust

is to get trust.


When the work is done right.

with no fuss or boasting,

ordinary people say,

Oh, we did it.


Question:  Which leader would you rather follow?
