75 道德经:
民之饥,以其上食税之多,是以饥。民之难治,以其上之有为,是以难治。民之轻死,以其求生之厚,是以轻死。夫唯无以生为者,是贤于贵生。
Dao De Jing:
(How greediness injures)
The people suffer from famine because of the multitude of taxes consumed by their superiors. It is through this that they suffer famine.
The people are difficult to govern because of the (excessive) agency of their superiors (in governing them). It is through this that they are difficult to govern.
The people make light of dying because of the greatness of their labours in seeking for the means of living. It is this which makes them think light of dying. Thus it is that to leave the subject of living altogether out of view is better than to set a high value on it.

2 九守:
老子曰:人受天地变化而生,一月而膏,二月血脉,三月而哒,四月而胎,五月而筋,六月而骨,七月而成形,八月而动,九月而躁,十月而生。形骸已成,五藏乃形,肝主目,肾主耳,脾主舌,肺主鼻,胆主口,外为表,中为里,头员法天,足方象地,天有四时、五行、九解、三百六十日,人有四支、五藏、九窍、三百六十节。天有风雨寒暑,人有取与喜怒,胆为云,肺为气,脾为风,肾为雨,肝为雷,人与天地相类,而心为之主。耳目者日月也,血气者风雨也,日月失行,薄蚀无光,风雨非时,毁折生灾,五星失行,州国受其殃。天地之道,至闳以大,尚由节其章光,爱其神明,人之耳目何能久熏而不息?精神何能驰骋而不乏?是故圣人守内而不失外。夫血气者人之华也,五藏者人之精也,血气专乎内而不外越,则胸腹充而嗜欲寡,嗜欲寡则耳目清而听视聪达,听视聪达谓之明。五藏能属于心而无离,则气意胜而行不僻,精神盛而气不散,以听无不闻,以视无不见,以为无不成,患祸无由入,哀气不能袭,故所求多者所得少,所见大者所知小。夫孔窍者精神之户牖,血气者五藏之使候,故耳目淫于声色,即五藏动摇而不定,血气滔荡而不休,精神驰骋而不守,祸福之至虽如丘山,无由识之矣,故圣人爱而不越。圣人诚使耳目精明玄达,无所诱慕,意气无失清静而少嗜欲,五藏便宁,精神内守形骸而不越,即观乎往世之外,来事之内,祸福之间何足见也,故其出弥远者,其知弥少。以言精神不可使外淫也,故五色乱目,使目不明,五音入耳,使耳不聪,五味乱口,使口生创,趣舍滑心,使行飞扬。故嗜欲使人气淫,好憎使人精劳,不疾去之,则志气日耗。夫人所以不能终其天年者,以生生之厚,夫唯无以生为者,即所以得长生,天地运而相通,万物摠而为一,能知一即无一之不知也,不能知一即无一之能知也。吾处天下亦为一物,而物亦物也,物之与物,何以相物,欲生不可事也,憎死不可辞也,贱之不可憎也,贵之不可喜也,因其资而宁之,弗敢极弗敢极也,即至乐极也。

1 贪损:
民之饥,以其上食税之多,是以饥。人民所以饥寒者,以其君上税食下太多,民皆化上为贪,叛道违德,故饥。民之难治,以其上之有为,是以难治。民之不可治者,以其君上多欲,好有为也。是以其民化上有为,情伪难治。民之轻死,以其上求生之厚,人民所以侵犯死者,以其求生活之道太厚,贪利以自危。是以轻死。以求生太厚之故,轻入死地也。夫为无以生为者,是贤于贵生。夫唯独无以生为务者,爵禄不干于意,财利不入于身,天子不得臣,诸侯不得使,则贤于贵生也。

5 精神训:
夫人之所以不能终其寿命,而中道夭于刑戮者,何也?以其生生之厚。夫惟能无以生为者,则所以修得生也。夫天地运而相通,万物总而为一。能知一,则无一之不知也;不能知一,则无一之能知也。譬吾处于天下也,亦为一物矣,不识天下之以我备其物与?且惟无我而物无不备者乎?然则我亦物也,物亦物也,物之与物也,又何以相物也?虽然,其生我也,将以何益?其杀我也,将以何损?
