Back Forward
Daoism -> Dao De Jing -> 44

Or fame or life, Which do you hold more dear?
Or life or wealth, To which would you adhere?
Keep life and lose those other things; Keep them and lose your life: - which brings Sorrow and pain more near?
Thus we may see, Who cleaves to fame Rejects what is more great;
Who loves large stores Gives up the richer state.
Who is content Needs fear no shame.
Who knows to stop Incurs no blame.
From danger free Long live shall he.
