Fame or Life

Fame or Life,

Which do you hold more dear?

Or Life or Wealth,

To which would you adhere?

Keep Life and Loose

those other things; keep them

and loose your Life?

Which brings sorrow

and pain

more near?

Thus we may see,

who cleaves to fame

Rejects what is

more great; who

loves large

stores gives up

the richer state.

Who is content

needs fear no

shame. Who

knows to stop

Incurs no blame.

From danger

free long live

shall he.

 

Lao Tzu

Namaste
