On the Way of the Sage

The way of the sage
is nothing but humanity,
virtue, harmony, and rectitude.
Preserve it and it will be ennobling.
Practice it and it will be beneficial.
Prolong it and it will match
Heaven and Earth.
Is it not easy and simple?
Is it hard to know?
If so, it is because we do not
preserve, practice, and prolong it.

— Chou Tun-Yi (1017-1073)
    Penetrating the Book of Changes, Ch. 6
