Chapter 46. Limiting lust
When the Tao is in the world, horses graze in the pastures.
When the Tao has left the world, war horses are reared.
There is no bigger sin than living in lust.
There is no greater pain than being non-content.
There is nothing more unfortunate than greediness for merit.
That is why being filled with contention is eternal provision.
