75 道德經:
民之飢,以其上食稅之多,是以飢。民之難治,以其上之有為,是以難治。民之輕死,以其求生之厚,是以輕死。夫唯無以生為者,是賢於貴生。
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.

1 貪損:
民之饑,以其上食稅之多,是以飢。人民所以饑寒者,以其君上稅食下太多,民皆化上為貪,叛道違德,故饑。民之難治,以其上之有為,是以難治。民之不可治者,以其君上多欲,好有為也。是以其民化上有為,情偽難治。民之輕死,以其上求生之厚,人民所以侵犯死者,以其求生活之道太厚,貪利以自危。是以輕死。以求生太厚之故,輕入死地也。夫為無以生為者,是賢於貴生。夫唯獨無以生為務者,爵祿不干於意,財利不入於身,天子不得臣,諸侯不得使,則賢於貴生也。
