Zhuang Zhou (Chuang Tzu) Quote – “He who is controlled by objects Loses possession of his inner self…”

When he tries to extend his power over objects
Those objects gain control of him.
He who is controlled by objects
Loses possession of his inner self.
If he no longer values himself,
How can he value others?
If he no longer values others,
He is abandoned.
He has nothing left.

Zhuang Zhou (369 – 286 B.C.E.)
