| The First Step | Gateway to Mystery | Doing Nothing | Not Doing | Hidden Emptiness | More Words Count Less | The Valley Spirit | Staying Behind | The Highest Good | Stopping Short |
Better stop short
than fill to the brim.
Oversharpen the blade,
and the edge
will soon blunt.
Amass a store of gold and jade,
and no one can protect it.
Claim wealth and titles,
and disaster will follow.
Retire when the work is done.
This is the way of heaven.
Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching, chapter 9
