"...if you look at your home as something that shows your position in society rather than a place to sleep and a place to eat, clearly nobody wants to live in what is considered to be the lowest position."
-ERE, in his 11 JUL 2010 post on personality
"The supreme good is like water,

which nourishes all things without trying to.

It is content with the low places that people disdain.

...

In dwelling, live close to the ground."
-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching 8, as translated by Stephen Mitchell
"All streams flow to the sea

because it is lower than they are.

Humility gives it its power."
-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching 66, as translated by Stephen Mitchell
