Seventy-Four

If people are not afraid of death,
why threaten them with death?

If people are in constant fear of death,
and if being unruly means you will be killed,
who would dare be unruly?
Who would dare kill him?

There is always a Lord of Death.
Trying to do his job is like taking the place of an artisan.
He who tries to carve like a master carpenter
rarely avoids being cut.
