Tao Te Ching verse for Tiger

If you want to be a great leader you must learn to follow the Tao.
Stop trying to control. Let go of fixed plans and concepts and the world will govern itself.
The more prohibitions you have the less virtuous the people will be.
The more weapons you have the less secure people will be.
The more subsidies you have the less self reliant the people will be.
Therefore the Master says I let go of the law and people become honest.
I let go of economics and the people become prosperous.
I let go of religion and the people become serene.
I let go of the desire for the common good and the good becomes as common as grass.
