Chapter 68 – The best athlete wants his opponent at his best.

The best athlete
wants his opponent at his best.
The best general
enters the mind of his enemy.

The best businessman
serves the communal good.
The best leader
follows the will of the people.

All of the embody
the virtue of non-competition.
Not that they don’t love to compete,
but they do it in the spirit of play.

In this they are like children
and in harmony with the Tao.
