Tao Te Ching Chapter 22-11 No boasting
He doesn't boast. So, he is the best. (Ch.22)
Do not boast.
Just remember that you are always the best.
Remember what the baby Buddha is supposed to have said at his birth.
"Above heaven, below heaven, I am alone, who is the only respectable being. 天上天下唯我独尊 [ten jo ten ge yui ga doku son]"
It is totally logical because you are the only one who projects your hologram, which is the world.
Give yourself a bit more credit. You are doing a very good job.
Look! You create a perfect world in front of you.
Don't judge it. Just love it.
Accept it, but just don't boast that you have created it.
By creating and acting on it at the same time, boasting will cause a short-circuit-like effect on your hologram.

-I don't know if they are the best collections, but at least they are complete collections. Akira Kurosawa's films and Osamu Tezuka's Phoenix. The latter could be a very good introduction to understand oriental philosophies.
