Daodejing 62. The Way is the most honorable of things; to the virtuous, it is more valuable than wealth. The Way does good even to the bad. Following The Way brings honor; even those who do not follow it benefit from it. So, when you see the trappings of honor, don't look for your own reward; following The Way is itself the highest honor of all. Why did people of old honor The Way? Because it can be got by seeking for it, nothing else required. Even the guilty are forgiven in it. That is why it is the most valuable thing anywhere.
