When responsible for a difficult task,
have strength without anger.
When getting along with difficult people,
have awareness without words.
When going down a difficult road,
have faith without fear.
When enduring a difficult situation,
adapt without complaint.
The worst fault is unwillingness to get along.
The worst ignorance is blindness to truth.
The wisest thing is not to repeat a mistake.
The best cultivation is not to blame others for your faults.*
A genius who often says,
“Let’s put it off till tomorrow!”
is no better than someone who is mediocre.
A highly capable person who often says,
“Let someone else do it!”
is no better than someone who is incompetent.
