Yield and overcome.
Bend and be straight;
Empty and be full;
Wear out and be new;
Have little and gain;
Have much and be confused.

Therefore, the smart man embraces the one
And sets an example to all.
Not putting on a display,
He shines forth.
Not justifying himself,
He is distinguished.
No boasting,
He receives recognition.
Not bragging,
He never falters.
He does not quarrel,
So no one quarrels with him.
The way the ancients had it,
“Yield and overcome,”
Is no empty saying.

Be really whole,
And all things will come to you.
