Tao Te Ching: Chapter 34

Chapter 34

1

When the people do not fear what they ought to fear, that which is their great dread will come on them.

2

Let them not thoughtlessly indulge themselves in their ordinary life; let them not act as if weary of what that life depends on.

3

It is by avoiding such indulgence that such weariness does not arise.

4

Therefore the sage knows (these things) of himself, but does not parade (his knowledge); loves, but does not (appear to set a) value on, himself. And thus he puts the latter alternative away and makes choice of the former.
