The preeminent one is barely known

17

The preeminent one is barely known.
Next is one who is loved and praised.
Next is one who is feared.
The lowest one is despised.

When one’s trust is wanting,
there is distrust in others.

The master speaks little and with caution.
When his work is done,
the people say they did it themselves.
