On Selflessness

天長地久。天地所以能長且久者,以其不自生,故能長生。是以聖人後其身而身先;外其身而身存。非以其無私耶?故能成其私。

The Heaven and the Earth sustain eternally because they don’t reproduce. The sage who puts his own personal interest last finds himself in the foremost place; selfless persons will see definitive benefits. Those who don’t care the interest of themselves will get the most interest to them.
