Yun Yi found these wise words in a Chinese forum and just translated them into English, today.?

Mountain has its height,

water has its depth,

there is no reason to compete;

Wind has its freedom,

cloud has its tenderness,

there is no reason to imitate;

Search for whatever you think is joyful;

dwell on whatever you think is worth;

appreciate whatever you think is happy.

There is nothing would not be judged,

there is nothing would not be envied;

Be truthful to yourself, follow your heart, there will be no regret;

There is only one path in life: your own path;

There are two treasure of life: good health, loving heart;

There are three kinds of friends: those who lend money to you

those who attend your wedding; those who attend your funeral.

There are four adversities in life:

can't see through,

can't give it up, can't lose,

can't put it down.

There are five maxims for life:

persevere no matter how hard it is;

take it light no matter how valuable it is;

restrain your spending no matter how rich you are;

be passionate no matter how cold you are.

There are six treasures in life: physical health; knowledge; dream; belief; confidence; courage.
