Go to the People
Poem by Lau Tsu
Tao Te Ching, Chapter 17
edited by Phil Bartle
to the People;
Live among them;
Love them;
Learn from them;
Start from where they are;
Work with them;
Build on what they have.
. . .
But of the best leaders,
When the task is accomplished,
The work completed,
The people all remark:
"We have done it ourselves"
                               Lao Tsu
