Not exalting the gifted
Not collecting treasure
Not seeing desirable things
prevents confusion of the heart.
The wise therefore rule
by emptying hearts
and stuffing bellies,
by weakening ambitions
and strengthening bones.
If people lack knowledge and desire,
will not try to interfere.
If nothing is done,
then all will be well.
Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching, chapter 3
