Chapter 31

Happy events prefer the left
Sad events prefer the right
The army deputy commander sits on the left
The army chief commander sits on the right
Overlords at home then favour the left
At arms then favour the right
Those at arms are Not vessels of good fortune
And not vessels for the Overlords
For those at arms are not vessels of good fortune
Creatures often hate them
Does not attain it but uses it
Peace and quiet are best
He conquers but does not enjoy
But those who enjoy it
Exult in killing men
For those who exult in killing men
Then can not fulfill his wishes
In the World
It is said it takes a funeral to end it
The multitudes of slain men
To weep in sorrow and grief for them
Victory in battle 
Ends in funerals
So those who have the Way do not abide them
