He who is modest (15) has got it easy.
Within the earth a mountain: the image of modesty. Thus the superior man reduces what is too much, and increases what is too little. He weighs things and makes them equal.
Modesty creates success. The superior man completes things.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
