The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Eleven: Maxims

27

The Founding Master said, “A foolish person likes free things but does not realize that they can lead to greater loss many times over. Those who are wise not only dislike free things, but when they obtain them, they refrain from keeping them all for themselves but share them in appropriate places, thus guarding in advance against misfortunes.”
