Daoism -> Dao De Jing -> 35

(The attribute of benevolence)
To him who holds in his hands the Great Image (of the invisible Dao),
天下 the whole world repairs.
Men resort to him, and receive no hurt,
but (find) rest, peace, and the feeling of ease.
Music and dainties
will make the passing guest stop (for a time).
But though the Dao as it comes from the mouth,
seems insipid and has no flavour,
though it seems not worth being looked at or listened to,
the use of it is inexhaustible.
