im looking through my tao te ching. I thought id try to help you. Be careful calling yourself a sage though...

"Whoever assumes a nation's disgrace is called the sacred leader of a country, and whoever assumes a nation's misfortune is called the emperor of all beneath heaven."

"A sages mind is never his own: he makes the hundred-fold people's mind his mind."

"I only teach what the people teach: Tyranny and force never come to a natural end. I've taken the people as my schoolmaster."

"A sage is always perfect in rescuing people and so abandons no one, alwasy perfect in rescueing things and so abandons nothing."

"Without honoring the teacher and loving the resorce, no amount of wisdom can prevent vast confusion."

Thats all I can find right now unless I pull out some other books. I hope they helped a little granted you can cut words out of them and twist meanings if all else fails :?

Each atom of that stone, each mineral flake of that night-filled mountain, in itself forms a world. The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy. -Albet Camus

The Official Role Model Oath

"You've got to be careful whom you pattern yourself after
because you're likely to become just like them."
-- Rich Mayo

"Imagine for yourself a character, a model personality,
whose example you determine to follow,
in private as well as in public."
-- Epictetus

"If I am walking with two other men,
each of them will serve as my teacher.
I will pick out the good points of the one and imitate them,
and the bad points of the other and correct them in myself."
-- Confucius

"You don't have to know people personally
for them to be role models.
Some of my most important role models
were historical or literary figures
that I only read about --
never actually met."
-- John Wilson

"Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings,
so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for."
-- Socrates

"The most important role models in people's lives, it seems,
aren't superstars or household names.
They're 'everyday' people who quietly set examples for you --
coaches, teachers, parents.
People about whom you say to yourself,
perhaps not even consciously, 'I want to be like that.' "
-- Tim Foley

"Some of the most important people in my life
would be shocked to learn that they were role models.
They weren't celebrities, or even particularly accomplished.
But they had some quality that I admired,
that made me want to be like them."
-- Donn Moomaw

"If you dream the proper dreams,
and share the myths with people,
they will want to grow up to be like you."
-- Ray Bradbury

"My theory is that most really successful people
are fueled by an insecurity of some kind,
a perceived lack in themselves that they're trying to overcome.
I don't mean this in a negative way.
Insecurity can be a great motivator.
The problem is, you achieve something,
and suddenly you're a role model.
And you know what?
I've never met a so-called role model
who really felt that he or she was deserving of the title!"
-- Kermit Washington

"One of the daunting things about being an achiever in any field
is that suddenly you have the power to influence people.
Some sports heroes say, 'I don't want that responsibility.'
But that's the wrong reaction. The right reaction is,
'Okay, I've got some influence. How do I use it
to help someone else be successful too?' "
-- Tim Foley

"Each person must live their life as a model for others."
-- Rosa Parks
