Tao Te Ching Meditation - Chapter 44:

44.1 Which is closer, your name or your body?
       Which is more, your body or your possessions?
       Which is more destructive, gain or loss?
44.2 Extreme fondness means great expense,
       and abundant possessions mean much loss.
44.3 If you know when you have enough,
       you will not be disgraced.
       If you know when to stop,
       you will not be endangered.
       It is possible thereby to live long.
