Lao-Tzu #75: When people begin to view death lightly, wealthy people have too much which causes others to starve.

75

 

When people go hungry,

the government’s taxes are too high.

When people become rebellious,

the government has become too intrusive.

 

When people begin to view death lightly,

wealthy people have too much

which causes others to starve.

 

Only those who do not cling to their life can save it.
