A certain lightness

Fame or self: Which matters more?
Self or wealth: Which is more precious?
Gain or loss: Which is more painful?

He who is attached to things will suffer much.
He who saves will suffer heavy loss.

A contented person is never disappointed.
The person who knows when to stop will not find themselves in trouble.
They will stay forever safe.

Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching 44
