24 道德經:
企者不立;跨者不行;自見者不明;自是者不彰;自伐者無功;自矜者不長。其在道也,曰:餘食贅行。物或惡之,故有道者不處。
Dao De Jing:
(Painful graciousness)
He who stands on his tiptoes does not stand firm; he who stretches his legs does not walk (easily). (So), he who displays himself does not shine; he who asserts his own views is not distinguished; he who vaunts himself does not find his merit acknowledged; he who is self- conceited has no superiority allowed to him. Such conditions, viewed from the standpoint of the Dao, are like remnants of food, or a tumour on the body, which all dislike. Hence those who pursue (the course) of the Dao do not adopt and allow them.

1 苦恩:
企者不立,企,進也。謂貪權慕名,進取功榮,則不可久立身行道也。跨者不行,自以為貴而跨於人,眾共蔽之,使不得行。自見者不明,人自見其形容以為好,自見其所行以為應道,殊不知其形醜,操行之鄙。自是者不彰,自以為是而非人,眾共蔽之,使不得彰明。自伐者無功,所謂輒自伐取其功美,即失有功於人也。自矜者不長。好自矜大者,不可以長久。其在道也,曰:餘食贅行。贅,貪也。使此自矜伐之人,在治國之道,日賦歛餘祿食以為貪行。物或惡之。此人在位,動欲傷害,故物無有不畏惡之者。故有道者不處。言有道之人不居其國也。

10 道經:
自見者不明,人自見其形容,以為好,自見所行,以為應道,不自知其形醜、操行之鄙也。自是者不彰,自以為是而非人,衆人共蔽之,使不得彰明也。自伐者無功,所為輒自伐,即失有功也。自矜者不長,好自矜者,不以久長。故有道者不處。
