Daodejing 13

Fear disgrace; fear favor;
consider honor and rejection
equal in every way.

What does it mean to fear
both favor and disgrace?

It means respect for both.

What does it mean to say
“consider honor and rejection
equal in every way”?

It means living contains both.

Those who lead others
as they lead themselves

and lead themselves
with care

can be trusted to lead.
