The Book of the Right Way of Laozi – 46.

46

When everyone under the sun has the process,
The horses are used for their fertilizer.
When everyone under the sun does not have the process,
Horses are bred for war outside the city.
There is no disaster greater than not knowing what is enough.
There is no blame greater than greed.
Therefore, it is enough to know that what is enough
Is always enough!

 

天下有道,卻走馬以糞。天下無道,戎馬生於郊。禍莫大於不知足;咎莫大於欲得。故知足之足,常足矣。

 

1 sky under have process
2 while walk horse because manure
3 day under not process
4 weapon horse beget in suburb
5 disaster there is none who big in regard to not know sufficient
6 blame there is none who big in regard to desire need
7 therefore know sufficient it sufficient
8 constant sufficient
