Chapter 7. Concealing light
Both heaven and earth stay a long time.
What makes them so durable is their disregard of the longevity of their lives.
This why they stay.
So the wise man who does not care about himself is the greatest among men; even though he does not tend after himself he stays.
He is the most unselfish and therefore he stays the safest.
