Tao Te Ching 49

The wise are without prejudice:
they see all perspectives.

Patient with the good,
impatient with the bad:
   they demonstrate the virtue of moral insight.

Sharing belief with believers,
they also share unbelief with unbelievers:
   thereby demonstrating the virtues of faith.

The wise live in the world
   and are affected by the same passions.
Others notice the difference.
   The wise nurture them.
