The leader’s weapons


I love this quote I learned in martial arts sometime over the last 20 years… it is from Lao Tzu, a philosopher who added a lot to Taoism.  And while I don’t validate Taoism, God’s Truth is seen in many places.  Truly… all things are spiritual.  And these three are a leader’s most potent arsenal:

“Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest weapons. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.  Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.”

-Lao Tzu
