Tao Te Ching
From "The Perennial Way" - A Translation of Lao Tsu's Tao Te Ching by Bart Marshall

The five colors confuse the eye.
The five tones deaden the ear.
The five flavors dull the palette.
Racing and hunting madden the mind.
Valuable goods hinder movement.
Therefore, the sage is guided by his gut, not his senses.
He attends to one and ignores the other.
