A nice philosophy

My favorite part of the book of Lao Tzu so far:

"He who knows others is wise;
He who knows himself is enlightened.
He who conquers others has physical strength.
He who conquers himself is strong.
He who is contented is rich.
He who acts with vigor has will.
He who does not loose his place (with Tao) will endure.
He who dies but does not really perish enjoys long life."

Mostly I like the first five lines, but it sounds weird without the rest.
