The mean person desires wealth,
The nobleman desires fame.
In the ways in which they affect their true form,
and change their innate natures,
they are different.
But as they cast aside what they have
in pursuit of something they don't have,
they are identical.

So it is said,
do not be a mean person.
Turn again and desire the Heavenly within.
Do not be a nobleman
Pursue the path of Heaven within.
Whether bent or true,
See all in the light of Heaven.
Learn to face all four directions,
and flow with the tides of the season.
