A great thing done is never perfect -
But that doesn’t mean it fails: it does what it is.
Real richness means to act as if you had nothing,
Because then you will never be drained of it.
The greatest straightness seems bent,
The greatest ability seems awkward,
And the greatest speech like a stammering.
Act calmly, not coldly.
Peace is greater than anger.
Tranquility and harmony are the true order of things.
