TAO TE CHING 44

river town

Fame or your being –

Which is closer to your heart?

Your life or your wealth –

Which is more valuable?

Gain or loss –

Which is more destructive?

Loving excess

Incurs great waste

The more you hoard up

The more immense your losses

Know what is enough

And you won’t be disappointed

Realize restraint

And you won’t be endangered

 Thus are you able to last

As long as the ancients
