|My words are easy to understand
|And easy to practice.
|Yet nobody understands them
|[O]r practices them.
|My words have an origin;
|My actions have a principle.
|It is only because of your not understanding this
|That you do not understand me.
|Since there are few who understand me
|I am valued.
|Therefore the sage wears coarse clothes.
|Yet hides a jewel in his bosom.
