When you fill a cup to the very brim it is hard to use;
When you sharpen a knife to its very keenest,
It is dull at the first stroke.

When wealth and honor are yours in superabundance,
You cannot use them.

Use excess to begin your tasks;
Use perfection to finish them;
Vanish when your personal role is done.
That is Heaven’s way.
