From Verse 73 of the Tao Te Ching:
The world we live in requires great courage and patience.
Those with great courage, but little patience, tend to kill or be killed.
Those with great courage as well as patience will tend to survive.
But the Tao never judges you for whatever path you happen to take.
The Tao never strives but always fulfills itself,
Never is commanded but always responds.
Never is summoned but always appears.
Never is impatient but all is done in time.
