49th Verse of the Tao

49th Verse Tao Te Ching

The sage has no mind of his own.
He is aware of the needs of others.
I am good to people who are good.
I am also good to people who are not good.
Because Virtue is goodness.

I have faith in people who are faithful.
I also have faith in people who are not faithful.
Because Virtue is faithfulness.
The sage is shy and humble
to the world he seems confusing.
Others look to him and listen.
He behaves like a little child.
