Wu Wei (Do Nothing) - Poem by Lawrence CH Hiun

Overfilling a vessel is not as good as stopping before it is filled
Over sharpen a blade and it will lose its edge.
Pile up gold and jade
And it will impossible to guard it

In going after rank and titles
In an arrogant and haughty way
You will bring about your own downfall.
Withdraw when the work is done

This is the way of Tao.
