In times of adversities, one should display one’s willpower and fighting spirit.
In favorable times, one should only reveal calm and peaceful sentiments.
In times that are neither adverse nor favorable to one,
One should try incessantly to clear away all the clogs on one’s thoughts and deeds.
Clouds are not formed to produce floods or a deluge.
Rain falls to moisturize the earth so that all forms of life can grow.
The all-pervasive sunshine warms the bodies and hearts of many creatures.
However, it sometimes inadvertently scorches many forms of life
which have no way to evade its blaze.
Today is turning into yesterday minute by minute.
Tomorrow is still hours away for us to call it “today.”
If we make good use of today, we will be able to keep all our yesterdays.
If we squander today, we will also easily throw away tomorrow.
This reasoning applies to
The extended time span of the present, the past and the future.
