亏,


              The moon waxes only to wane, and water surges only to overflow.

解释 ( paraphrase )
月亮圆了又要变成缺的,水太满了就要漫(màn)出来。
这条谚语告诉我们:物极必反。也就是事物发展到了极端,就会向相反的方向转化。

This proverb points out that :things turn into their opposites when they reach their extremes.

亏:表示缺。
To wane.

溢:表示液体装得太满而漫出来。
To overflow.

造句 ( example )
他从暴富到破产的结局倒应了中国那句古话:月满则亏,水满则溢。
