16 卷九:
贤士不以耻食,不以辱得。老子曰:“名与身孰亲?身与货孰多?得与亡孰病?是故甚爱必大费,多藏必厚亡。知足不辱,知止不殆,可以长久。大成若缺,其用不敝;大盈若冲,其用不穷;大直若诎大辩若讷,大巧若拙,其用不屈。罪莫大于多欲,祸莫大于不知足。故知足之足,常足矣。

46 道德经:
天下有道,却走马以粪。天下无道,戎马生于郊。祸莫大于不知足;咎莫大于欲得。故知足之足,常足矣。
Dao De Jing:
(The moderating of desire or ambition)
When the Dao prevails in the world, they send back their swift horses to (draw) the dung- carts. When the Dao is disregarded in the world, the war-horses breed in the border lands.
There is no guilt greater than to sanction ambition; no calamity greater than to be discontented with one's lot; no fault greater than the wish to be getting. Therefore the sufficiency of contentment is an enduring and unchanging sufficiency.

1 俭欲:
天下有道,谓人主有道也。却走马以粪,粪者,粪田也。兵甲不用,却走马治农田,治身者却阳精以粪其身。天下无道,谓人主无道也。戎马生于郊。战伐不止,戎马生于郊境之上,久不还也。罪莫大于可欲。好淫色也。祸莫大于不知足,富贵不能自禁止也。咎莫大于欲得。欲得人物,利且贪也。故知足之足,守真根也。常足。无欲心也。
