IN governing a people and in serving Heaven,
There is nothing like frugality.
To be frugal is to return before straying.
To return before straying is to have a double reserve
To have a double reserve of virtue is to overcome
To overcome everything is to reach an invisible height.
Only he who has reached an invisible height can have
Only he who has got the Mother of a kingdom can
This is the way to be deep-rooted and firm-planted
in the Tao,
The secret of long life and lasting vision.
