The supreme goodness is like water.

Water benefits all things without conflict.

It resides in the low places that others don’t want.

Thus, it is close to the Dao.

An excellent residence counts on the suitability of the setting.

An excellent mind counts on stillness like an abyss.

Excellent relationships count on benevolence.

Excellent words count on integrity.

Excellent governance counts on order.

Excellent handling of affairs counts on ability.

Excellent action counts on timing.

Such an excellent person has no conflict, thus no one finds fault with him.
