The greatest perfection appears imperfect, and
Perfection does not go too far;
The greatest abundance appears insufficient; thus,
Abundance is not deprived of its self.
Let your greatest propriety appear askew;
Let your greatest skill appear awkward;
Let your greatest eloquence appear hesitant.
Action overcomes cold, and
Stillness overcomes heat.
When you are active and steady,
You become the pole star for the tempestuous.
