Tao Te Ching: Chapter 3
Never bestow honors
and people won't quarrel.
Never prize rare treasures
and people wont steal.
Never flaunt alluring things
and people won't be confused.
This is how a sage governs.
Fill bellies and empty minds,
strenthen bones and weaken ambition,
always keep the people from knowing and wanting,
then those who know are those who never presume to act.
If you're nothing doing what you do
all things will be governed well.
