Truth and Nature (Chapter 33) by Lao Tsu (approx. B.C. 221)

He who knows others is intelligent but he who knows himself is wise.

He who conquers others (by strength) is powerful but he who conquers himself (his own weaknesses) is strong.

He who feels contented is rich but he who achieves his own goals is strong-willed.

He who lives by his own good nature enjoys long life but he who follows “Truth” throughout life enjoys immortality.
