Lao Tzu # 79 followed by 5 minutes of silence
If terms to end a quarrel leave bad feeling, what good are they?
So a sensible wanderer takes the poor end of the bargain without quibbling.
It is sensible to make terms, foolish to be a stickler:
Though heaven prefer no person, a sensible person prefers heaven.
