A Quote by Lao Tzu on life and humility

What honor can there be without humility?
           What heights can be reached without being low?

The pieces of a chariot are useless
             unless the work in accordance with the whole
A man's life brings nothing
             unless he lives in accordance with the whole universe
Playing one's part
          in accordance with the universe
          is true humility

So whether you're a gem in the royal court
       or a stone on the common path
If you accept your part with humility
       the glory of the universe will be yours

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)
