Tao Te Ching Meditation -- Chapter 9 Enough Is Enough


9.1 To keep on filling is not as good as stopping.
9.2 Calculated sharpness cannot be kept for long.

9.4 When the rich upper classes are haughty, their legacy indicts them.
9.5 When one' work is accomplished honorably, to retire is the Way of heaven.
