lipu Nasin la: kasi nanpa 24 pi lipu Nasin Pona

企者不立   Standing on tiptoe, you are unsteady.
跨者不行   Straddle-legged, you cannot go.
自见者不明   If you show yourself, you will not be seen.
自是者不彰   If you affirm yourself, you will not shine.
自伐者无功   If you boast, you will have no merit.
自矜者不长   If you promote yourself, you will have no success.
其在道也   Those who abide in the Way call these
馀食赘行   Leftover food and wasted action
物或恶之   And all things dislike them.
故有道者不处   Therefore the person of the Way does not act like this.
