Never say in weakness, "This task is too difficult,"
For perseverance will give the ability to accomplish it.
Beware of leaving any work undone, for the world
Will abandon those who abandon their work unfinished.
The pride of profuse giving dwells only
With the dignity of diligent effort.
Like the swordsmanship of an effimate man,
The philanthropy of those who avoid hard work will end in failure.
He who prefers work to pleasure supports his family
Like a pillar, sweeping away their every sad sorrow.
Perseverance creates prosperity,
And the lack of it produces poverty.
They say the black ogress called Misfortune lurks in laziness,
While goddess Fortune lingers in the laboring toils of active men.
To be devoid of good fortune is no one's disgrace.
But shame belongs to those destitute of knowledge and tenacity.
Though destiny decrees one's deeds will fail,
The wages for determined work are always paid.
Those who strive with tireless exertion and remain undaunted
Will see the backside of retreating Fate.
