Verse 36

Bid on NFT

Contraction pulls at that 
    which extends too far 
Weakness pulls at that 
    which strengthens too much 
Ruin pulls at that 
    which rises too high 
Loss pulls at life 
    when you fill it with too much stuff 
The lesson here is called 
"The wisdom of obscurity"— 
    The gentle outlast the strong 
    The obscure outlast the obvious 
Hence, a fish that ventures from deep water 
    is soon snagged by a net 
A country that reveals its strength 
    is soon conquered by an enemy
