However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you think. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults in paradise.
 


不论你的生活如何卑贱,你都要面对它,不要躲避它,更别用恶言咒骂它。它并不像你想得那样坏。你最富有的时候,倒是看似最穷。爱找缺点的人就是到天堂里也能找到缺点。

Love your life, poor as it is.You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poor-house. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the alms-house as brightly as from the rich man's abode; the snow melts   efore its door as early in the spring.

你要爱你的生活,尽管它贫穷。甚至在一个济贫院里,你也还有愉快、高兴、光荣的时候。反射在济贫院窗上的夕阳,和洒在富户人家窗上的一样光亮,在那门前,积雪同在早春融化。

I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and haye as cheering thoughts, as in a palace. The town's poor seem to me often to live the most independent lives of any. May be they are simply great enough to receive without misgiving. Most think that they are above being supported by the town, but it often happens that they are not above supporting themselves by dishonest means, which should be more disreputable. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things,  whether clothes or friends.Tum the old, return to them. Things do not change; we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.

我只看到,一个从容的人,在哪里都像在皇宫中一样,生活得心满意足而且富有愉快的思想。我看城镇中的穷人,倒往往是过着最独立不羁的生活。也许因为他们很伟大,所以受之无愧。大多数人以为他们之所以过着超然的生活,是因为城镇的支援,可是   事实上他们并没有利用不正当的手段来获取那样的生活,那样的手段是毫不超脱的,甚至是不体面的。视贫穷如园中之花而像圣人.样耕植它吧!不要找新的花样,无论是新的朋友或新的衣服,来麻烦你自己。找旧的,回到那里去。万物不变,是我们在变。你的衣服可以卖掉,但要保留你的思想。
