Chapter 33 – Understanding oneself is enlightenment

Understanding others is knowledge,
Understanding oneself is enlightenment;

Conquering others is power,
Conquering oneself is strength;

Contentment is wealth,
Forceful conduct is willfulness;

Not losing one’s rightful place is to endure,
To die but not be forgotten is longevity.
