When people become overly bold,
then disaster will soon arrive.
Do not meddle with people's livelihoods;
if you respect them, they will in turn respect you.
Therefore, the Master knows herself but is
She loves herself but also loves others.
This is how she is able to make appropriate choices.
~ Lao Tzu
from the Tao Te Ching
