Truthful words are not beautiful.
Beautiful words are not sincere.
Good women don’t argue.
Women who argue well aren’t good.
The wise person does not have book knowledge.
The person with book knowledge is not wise.
The sage does not collect things
and so she gives to others.
Since she gives to the people,
she has tremendous abundance.
The way of Tao is sharp
but never harms.
The way of the sage is to serve
and not compete.
