Tao Te Ching says:

3

Don’t glorify heroes,

And people will not contend.

Don’t treasure rare objects,

And no one will steal.

Don’t display what people desire,

And their hearts will not be disturbed.

 

Therefore,

The Sage rules

By emptying hearts and filling bellies,

By weakening ambitions and strengthening bones;

Leads people

Away from knowing and wanting:

Deters those who know too much

From going too far:

Practices non-action

And the natural order is not disrupted.
