Don't seek to gain anything for yourself that forces you to break your word
or lose self-respect; to hate, suspect, or curse another; or to be insincere
or to desire something that needs to remain secret. Look to the people whose main desire is to nurture their minds and their
inner spirits. They do not fuss, complain, or crave either solitude or a crowd.
And, most important of all, they will live without either striving or avoiding,
and will not care whether their lives are long or short.
