What honor can there be without humility?
What heights can be reached without being low?
The pieces of a chariot are useless
unless the work in accordance with the whole
A man's life brings nothing
unless he lives in accordance with the whole universe
Playing one's part
in accordance with the universe
is true humility
So whether you're a gem in the royal court
or a stone on the common path
If you accept your part with humility
the glory of the universe will be yours
