Chapter 44: Setting up a list of things you should give up or stop doing.

Fame or your body, which matters more?
Your body or wealth, to what extent will you go?
Obtain them (fame and wealth) and you’ll still die by which ailment?

Therefore, extreme popularity causes wealth to be squandered, while
Hoarding causes wealth to be stolen or to perish.

Thus, to be aware of your sufficiency is no disgrace.
To be aware that it is time to stop is not dangerous.
In fact, it may bring you long life.
