|A selection from the Taoist Writings:|
"Lao-Tan asked Confucius: `What do you mean by benevolence and righteousness?'
Confucius said: `To be in one's inmost heart in kindly sympathy with all
things; to love all men and allow no selfish thoughts: this is the nature
of benevolence and righteousness.'"
