‘Invisibility is the best advantage.

But if forced to a confrontation.

Come out with all your skill.’

‘Go through life without showing off, attracting attention to yourself, or making flamboyant gestures. The wise accomplish all that they want without arousing the envy or scorn of others. They make achievements only for the sake of fulfilling their inner yearnings.

Yet it is inevitable that you will have to prove yourself at one time or another. When that is necessary, then you must marshal all your skills and do your very best. Prove yourself when it is demanded, and when you must prove yourself, be superior. At that moment, it is no time to talk of philosophy and humility.

Act. Do.

Then fade back into invisibility.

Deng Ming-Dao
