Source: THE TAO AND ITS CHARACTERISTICS


He who stands on his tiptoes does not stand firm; he who stretches
his legs does not walk (easily) (So), he who displays himself does
not shine; he who asserts his own views is not distinguished; he who
vaunts himself does not find his merit acknowledged; he who is self-
conceited has no superiority allowed to him Such conditions, viewed
from the standpoint of the Tao, are like remnants of food, or a tumour
on the body, which all dislike Hence those who pursue (the course)
of the Tao do not adopt and allow them





Next: There was something undefined and complete, coming into existence before Heaven

Previous: Hence, those with whom he agrees as to the Tao
