Chapter 44
Translation from Chinese with Richard Strauss Edited English Version

Madrid 2010

44.
Which is dearer, fame or your body? Between body and riches, Which is worthier? Which is more painful, gain or loss? He who wishes often will be cruelly frustrated. . . He who accumulates much, Accelerates his losses . . . Being satisfied with little, Is to stop misfortune . . . Knowing when to stop, Is to avoid danger. . . If not, just forget about being long-lasting.
