"持而盈之,不如其已。揣而銳之,不可長保。金玉滿堂,莫之能守。"
As for holding anything to fullness or extremity, It would be better to stop in time. Keep on sharpening a sword, We see that the edge cannot last long. When your hall is full of gold and jade, you are not able to keep them safe. 
凡事皆應進退有度,保持平衡,不要自恃才傲物。自視過高就像水滿而溢流出來一樣,是得不償失的。倒不如保持平和之心境,使自己安寧恬適處境超然,寧靜致遠,意泰悠閒,不是更好嗎?
自恃聰明才智,而且還鋒芒顯露者,將會受到別人的排斥與嫉妒。這種人絕對不可能受到別人的擁護與愛護,故謂不可常保。
金玉雖是珍貴,仍屬身外之物。縱然富有萬頃,金玉堆積滿堂,一旦臨命終時,還是守不住的。

"富貴而驕,自遺其咎。"
When feeling proud with wealth and honour, you are on the way to get disaster. 
如果持富而驕,因貴而傲,將會使人嫉妒批評或自惹盜賊臨門,終會自招惡果,後患無窮,這便是禍殃災咎的開始。

"功遂身退,天之道。"
Retire in time when you have done your work with great success. This is the Heaven's way.
只有無為順道,保持平衡寧靜的心態,懂得功成、名遂之時,兼能適時身退的人,才是最合乎自然大道。
