English translation: Tom Manzo and Shujan Cheng
Everything has its pros and cons,
Simply understand how to weigh them.
Always keep sight of what is possible,
For even dry stones and rotten wood
Can be used as medicine.
Everyone has strengths and weaknesses,
Simply understand how to bring out
the best in others.
the strong points of others,
For even broken copper and brittle iron
can be forged into steel.
