Dao de Jing Chapter 68, Great warriors are not...
Shànzhàn zhě bù nù.
Shànshèng dí zhě bù yǔ.
Shàn yòngrén zhě wéi zhī xià.
Shì wèi bùzhēng zhī dé.
Shì wèi yòngrén zhī lì.
Shì wèi pèi tiān gǔ zhī jí.
Great soldiers do not get angry.
Great conquers do not gloat.
Those good at managing men are humble.
This is called the virtue of non-contention.
This is called the strength of using men.
This is called the highest manifestation of accord with heaven.
Shàn wéi shì zhě bù wǔ.
Great warriors are not militaristic.
