Garden of Serenity

From A Chinese Garden of Serenity (1959), by Hung Tzu-ch’eng, translated by Chao Tze-chiang:

Where it is rancid and nasty, flies and mosquitoes crowd in to suck; where it is sweet and fragrant, bees and butterflies invade in swarms. Therefore the superior man neither undertakes a foul deed nor seeks to make a famous name. He keeps his pristine spirit and never displays his brilliance.
