The Book of the Right Way by Laozi – 75

75

The people are hungry because those at the top consume too much in taxes. That is why they are hungry.

The people suffer because of the rulers.

Because those at the top act like this the people are hard to rule.

The people know death.

Because those at the top live luxuriously, the people know death.

Truly, the man who has little taste for life

Is more worthy than those who crave life.

老 子:  「道 德 經」 :  第 七 十 五 章

    民 之 飢 , 以 其 上 食 稅 之 多 , 是 以 飢 。
民 之 難 治 , 以 其 上 之 有 為 , 是 以 難 治 。
民 之 輕 死 , 以 其 上 求 生 之 厚 , 是 以 輕 死 。
夫 唯 無 以 生 為 者 , 是 賢 於 貴 生 。
