Chapter 44. Staying silent
Which is closer to you, your name or your life?
Which is more valuable, your life or your wealth?
Which is bigger evil, earning or losing?
Great piousness demands great sacrifice.
Great wealth causes a great loss.
The one who is satisfied does not suffer defeat.
The one that can stand still avoids danger.
These people are durable.
