Mountain has its height,

water has its depth,

there is no reason to compete;

Wind has its freedom,

cloud has its tenderness,

there is no reason to imitate;

Search for whatever you think is joyful;

dwell on whatever you think is worth;

appreciate whatever you think is happy.

There is nothing would not be judged,

there is nothing would not be envied;

There is only one path in life:

your own path;

those who lend money to you;

those who attend your wedding;

those who attend your funeral.

can’t see through,

can’t give it up,

can’t lose,

can’t put it down.

There are five maxims for life:

persevere no matter how hard it is;

take it light no matter how valuable it is;

restrain your spending no matter how rich you are;

be passionate no matter how cold you are.

physical health; knowledge;

dream; belief;

confidence;

courage.
