When people no longer fear your power,
It is a sign that a great power is coming
Interfere not lightly with their dwelling,
Nor lay heavy burdens upon their livelihood.
Only when you cease to weary them,
They will cease to wearied of you.
Therefore, the sage knows himself,
But makes no show of himself;
But does not exalt himself.
He prefers what is within to what is without.
