If the whole world praises him, he is not elated.

If the whole world condemns him, he is not beaten.

In a word, praise and blame cannot change his conduct.

Such a man possesses true virtue.

As for myself, I am still among those who are influenced

by the opinions of others, like the wind moves the waves.

– Chang-tzu
