Laotzu's Tao and Wu Wei, by Dwight Goddard and Henri Borel, , at sacred-texts.com
Which is nearer, a name or a person? Which is more, personality or treasure? Is it more painful to gain or to suffer loss?
Extreme indulgence certainly greatly wastes. Much hoarding certainly invites severe loss.
A contented person is not despised. One who knows when to stop is not endangered; he will be able therefore to continue.
