The superior man, when resting in safety, does not forget that danger may come. When in a state of security he does not forget the possibility of ruin. When all is orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come. Thus his person is not endangered, and his States and all their clans are preserved.

    el hombre superior, cuando descansa en seguridad, no olvida que el peligro puede llegar. cuando en estado de seguridad no olvida la posibilidad de ruina. cuando todo está ordenado, no olvida que puede llegar el desorden. por tanto, su persona no está en peligro y sus estados y todos sus clanes se conservan.

    ylivoimainen ihminen ei turvassa lepääessään unohda, että vaara saattaa tulla. kun hän on turvatilassa, hän ei unohda tuhon mahdollisuutta. kun kaikki on järjestyksessä, hän ei unohda, että häiriö saattaa tulla. siten hänen henkilönsä ei ole vaarassa, ja hänen osavaltionsa ja kaikki heidän klaaninsa säilyvät.

    superior, incolume quiescens, periculum veniat non obliviscitur. cum in statu securitatis possibilitatis ruinae non obliviscitur. cum omnia sint ordinata, non obliviscitur quod veniat. sic homo periclitatur, et conservantur ejus status et omnes familiae.

    den overlegne mannen, når han hviler i sikkerhet, glemmer ikke at fare kan komme. når han er i en sikkerhet, glemmer han ikke muligheten for ruin. når alt er i orden, glemmer han ikke at uorden kan komme. dermed er hans person ikke truet, og hans stater og alle deres klaner er bevart.

    üstün insan, güven içinde dinlenirken tehlikenin gelebileceğini unutmaz. güvenlik durumundayken, yıkım olasılığını unutmaz. her şey yolundayken, kargaşanın gelebileceğini unutmaz. böylece şahsı tehlikeye atılmaz ve devletleri ve tüm klanları korunur.

    优秀的人在安全时不会忘记可能会有危险。在安全状态下他不会忘记可能会有毁灭的可能。当一切井然有序时,他不会忘记混乱可能到来。因此他的人身安全,他的国家和所有的氏族都得以保存。
