8.

Water is best.
It benefits all creation without competing with it.
It flows ever downward over all, even to the places men despise,
And, in so doing, water is like the Tao.

The sage prefers to dwell
Close upon the earth.
Values the profound.
Loves his fellow men.
His word is his integrity
And into his work he puts his competence.

He gets his timing right.

Not contending with others,
He finds that others do not contend with him.
