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.

31 道德經:
夫佳兵者,不祥之器,物或惡之,故有道者不處。君子居則貴左,用兵則貴右。兵者不祥之器,非君子之器,不得已而用之,恬淡為上。勝而不美,而美之者,是樂殺人。夫樂殺人者,則不可以得志於天下矣。吉事尚左,凶事尚右。偏將軍居左,上將軍居右,言以喪禮處之。殺人之衆,以哀悲泣之,戰勝以喪禮處之。
Dao De Jing:
(Stilling war)
Now arms, however beautiful, are instruments of evil omen, hateful, it may be said, to all creatures. Therefore they who have the Dao do not like to employ them.
The superior man ordinarily considers the left hand the most honourable place, but in time of war the right hand. Those sharp weapons are instruments of evil omen, and not the instruments of the superior man; - he uses them only on the compulsion of necessity. Calm and repose are what he prizes; victory (by force of arms) is to him undesirable. To consider this desirable would be to delight in the slaughter of men; and he who delights in the slaughter of men cannot get his will in the kingdom.
On occasions of festivity to be on the left hand is the prized position; on occasions of mourning, the right hand. The second in command of the army has his place on the left; the general commanding in chief has his on the right; - his place, that is, is assigned to him as in the rites of mourning. He who has killed multitudes of men should weep for them with the bitterest grief; and the victor in battle has his place (rightly) according to those rites.

1 偃武:
夫佳兵者,不祥之器,佳,飾也。祥,善也。兵者,驚精神,濁和氣,不善人之器也,不當修飾之。物或惡之,兵動則有所害,故萬物無有不惡之者。故有道者不處。有道之人不處其國。君子居則貴左,貴柔弱也。用兵則貴右。貴剛強也,此言兵道與君子之道反,所貴者異也。兵者,不祥之器,兵,革者。不善之器也。非君子之器,非君子所貴重之器也。不得已而用之。謂遭衰逆亂禍,欲加萬民,乃用之以自守。恬淡為上。不貪土地,利人財寶。勝而不美,雖得勝而不以為利己也。而美之者,是樂殺人。美得勝者,是為喜樂殺人者也。夫樂殺人者,則不可以得志於天下矣。為人君而樂殺人者,此不可使得志於天下矣,為人主必專制人命,妄行刑誅。吉事尚左,左,生位也。凶事尚右,陰道殺人。偏將軍居左,偏將軍卑而居陽者,以其不專殺也。上將軍居右。上將軍尊而居陰者,以其專主殺也。言以喪禮處之。上將軍居右,喪禮尚右,死人貴陰也。殺人之眾,以哀悲泣之;傷己德薄,不能以道化人,而害無辜之民。戰勝,以喪禮處之。古者戰勝,將軍居喪主禮之位,素服而哭之,明君子貴德而賤兵,不得以而誅不祥,心不樂之,比於喪也,知後世用兵不已故悲痛之。

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。
