Daodejing 24

Those who stand on tiptoes do not stand firm.
Those with long strides do not walk comfortably.
Those with loud opinions are not heard.
Those showing off do not shine.

The conceited are not seen as worthy.
From the point of view of The Way
all these are like crumbs on the face

Or sores that no one wants to see.

Those who pursue The Way
do not do these things.
