lipu Pona la: kasi nanpa 44 pi lipu Nasin Pona

名与身孰亲   Which is dearer, fame or your life?
身与货孰多   Which is greater, your life or possessions?
得与亡孰病   Which is more painful, gain or loss?
是故甚爱必大费   Therefore we always pay a great price for excessive love
多藏必厚亡   And suffer deep loss for great accumulation.
知足不辱   Knowing what is enough, you will not be humiliated.
知止不殆   Knowing where to stop, you will not be imperiled
可以长久   And can be long-lasting.
