Old days, when Baoxi had come to the rule of all under heaven, looking up he contemplated the brilliant forms exhibited in the sky, and looking down he surveyed the patterns shown on the earth.

5.

A man of virtue neither fawns on those who are superior to him, nor slights those who are inferior.
12.
The gentleman learns and accumulates the results of his learning; puts questions and discriminates among those results; dwells magnanimously and unambitiously in what he has attained to; and carries it into practice with benevolence.

When he sees what is good, the gentleman  looks up to it; and when he sees his errors, he  corrects them.
14.

15.
That which is antecedent to the material form is known as an ideal method; and that which is subsequent to the material form is known as a definite thing.
16.
The vile man thinks that small acts of goodness are of no benefit, and does not do them; and that small deeds of evil do no harm, and does not abstain from them. Hence his wickedness becomes great till it cannot be covered, and his guilt becomes great till it cannot be pardoned. 
17.
The words in agreement diffuse fragrance like orchid plants.
The strong and the weak  displace each other, and produce the changes and transformations .
