Good Predictions from the Tao.
To hold and fill to overflowing
Is not as good as to stop in time.
Sharpen a knife-edge to its very sharpest,
And the edge will not last long.
When gold and diamonds fill your hall,
You will not be able to keep them.
To be proud with honor and wealth
Is to cause one's own downfall.
Withdraw as soon as your work is done.
Such is the Way. (Lao-Tzu)
