Why do you entrust
Whatever you will gain or lose to the Fate?
If you can cherish whatever you have obtained
And make efforts to acquire whatever you aim at,
Even if Death comes by surprise in an instant,
You will still have no regrets about your whole life.
If you have time and energy
To feel deeply hurt and angry
At those which are slanderous, insulting, and malicious,
Why don’t you make good use of those time and energy
To infuse yourself with knowledge and wisdom and make yourself perfect.
Ailment is the destroyer of one’s health.
A wicked person is a demolisher to an upright and decent person.
Nevertheless, if one develops immunity against all kinds of diseases,
No ailment will have any effect on one’s health.
In the same way, if an upright and decent person has a very strong and sound mind,
A wick person, however he may try, will produce no harm to the upright and decent person.
