The first and greatest
victory is to conquer yourself;
to be conquered by yourself
is of all things most shameful and vile.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front,
especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur.
You take the front line when there is danger.
Then people will appreciate your leadership.
It is better to conquer yourself
than to win thousand battles,
Then the victory is yours .
It cannot be taken from you,
not by angels or by demons,
heaven or hell.
~~ Buddha ❤
