Context

“When you have institutions, know where their functions should end.
Knowing when to stop, you can avoid any danger. All things end in the Tao
as rivers flow into the sea.
33 Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough,
you are truly rich.
If you stay in the center and embrace death with your whole heart, you will endure forever.
