There is no greater dignity than that of the man who declares,
"I will never cease in laboring to advance my family."
Perseverance and sound understanding-
These two are what exalt a man's family.
When a man declares he will advance his family,
God Himself will wrap His robes and lead the way.
When a man's effort to raise high his family is unremitting,
His work will prosper of itself even if he makes no plans.
The world will surround and wish to befriend the man
Who, without wrongdoing, prospers in life to uplift loved ones.
It is said that true manliness consists
In becoming the head and provider for one's family.
On a battlefield the burden falls upon the brave; In the
family, a comparable weight is carried by the most competent.
Those seeking to improve their family await no reason,
For delays and undue regard for dignity will destroy it.
Behold the man who shields his family from all suffering.
Has not his body become a willing vessel for affliction.
Without good men to hold it up,
The family house will fall when misfortune descends.
