Depend On No Man, On No Friend, But Him Who Can Depend On Himself.
Depend on no man, on no friend, but him who can depend on himself.
He only who acts conscientiously towards himself will act so towards
others, and vice versa.
He who reforms himself, has done more towards reforming the public, than a crowd of noisy, impotent patriots.

-- Lao-tzu, Chinese philosopher and founder of Taoism...
He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened. -- Lao Tsu
