Mozi: Benefitting Others

000000000

‘Therefore when the wise men of ancient times planned for the welfare of the world, they were careful to consider and accord with what is right, and only then did they act.  So there was no uncertainty in their movements, and they achieved speedy success and certain realisation of their desires.  To accord with what benefits Heaven, the spirits, and the common people – this is the way of the wise man.’

Watson, Burton, Translator, Mo Tzu – Basic Writings – Columbia University Press, (1963), Page 52
