Gain and loss

Someone who has nothing gains at every turn; but someone who has too much, always perceives that they are losing it.

Have little and you will gain. Have much and you will be confused. (Lao Tzu)

Although in our culture humility and lowliness are seen to be “lesser” than fame and accomplishment, actually humility is a more positive state of being: because a man of great pride will tend to be taken down from his high station much more often, while the humble man – the lower he is – will always find himself lifted.

So the poorer you are in the moment, the richer you are in life.
