Endurance is to keep one's place;
Long life it is to die and not perish."

If you stay in the center
and embrace death with your whole heart,
you will endure forever."

Ambition wanders blind:

"Knowledge frequently results
from knowing others,
but the man who is awakened,
has seen the uncarved block.
Others might be mastered by force,
but to master one's self
requires the Tao.
He who has many material things,
may be described as rich,
but he who knows he has enough,
and is at one with the Tao,
might have enough of material things,
and have self-being as well.
Will-power may bring perseverance;
but to have tranquility is to endure,
being protected for all his days.
He whose ideas remain in the world,
is present for all time."
-  Translated by Stan Rosenthal, 1984, Chapter 33  

 

 

"He who knows others is wise;
He who knows himself is enlightened.
Conquering others requires force;
Conquering oneself requires strength.

He who is content is rich.
To act with perseverance requires will-power.
He who stays where he is, endures.
To die but not be forgotten is to enjoy long life."
-  Translated by Keith H. Seddon, Chapter 33

 

 

"Knowing others is wisdom, but knowing oneself is superior wisdom, (one's own nature being most hidden and profound).
Imposing one's will on others is strength; but imposing it on oneself is superior strength (one's own passions being the most difficult to subdue).
Being satisfied (content with what destiny has given), is true wealth; being master of oneself (bending oneself to the dispositions of destiny) is true character.
Staying in one's (natural) place (that which destiny has given), makes for a long lifer.
After death, not ceasing to be, is true longevity, (which is the lot of those who have lived in conformity with nature and destiny)."
-  Translated by Derek Bryce, 1999, Chapter 33
