When they mistake the unimportant as important
And the important as unimportant,
Dwelling in wrong motivations,
They don’t complete what is important.

[audio: English & Pāli]

When they know the important as important,
And the unimportant as unimportant,
Dwelling in right motivations,
They complete what is important.

from ‘The Chapter on the Pairs’
