Chapter 79. Keeping promise
When agreement has been reached after a long dispute, one side always grumbles. And how could this be said a good resolution to an argument?
That is why the wise one takes his part of the commitment and does not demand anything else for himself.
A just man checks only his own obligations in an agreement but the unjust seeks his own profit.
The heavenly Tao has no favorites.
It always helps the good.
