Daodejing 24

Those who stand on tiptoes 

do not stand firmly.

 

Those with long strides 

do not walk comfortably.

 

Those with loud opinions 

never get heard. 

 

Those showing off 

do not shine. 

 

No one sees the conceited as worthy.  

From the point of view of the way

 

all the above are like 

crumbs on the face or

 

sores that no one wants to see.  

 

Those who pursue the way

do not do these things.
