Waging Peace

Joe Bruchac: Tao Says

To lead the people
you must follow behind them.
When the leaders wear the finest clothes
the fields are filled with weeds.
The man who is brave and calm
will always preserve life.
Those who conquer
do so only when they yield.
Good men do not argue.
They know that the tree
which does not bend
will finally be broken.
