26.

Gravity is the root of levity,
Composure the master of haste.

Therefore:
The sage travels all day
Without getting out of her cart.
Though riding past vistas and spectacles
She passes them by
Traveling leisurely.

How then can the ruler of a great nation run about
Thinking of himself and not of the needs of his people?

Act hastily and you lose your self control.
Act frivolously and you lose control of the realm.
