Line 1 comment: Pulled couch grass uproots more with it by entwined roots. Snatch it: fortune.

Line 2 comment: Encompass the wasteland by crossing the river without a boat, but do not advance so far that you abandon comrades to perish. Win honor by a middle course.

Line 4 comment: Running back and forth: no wealth from your neighbors. But do not give up trust.
