Yutang Lin

When it doesn't work, couldn't help but drop it.
Facing competing choices, how to settle on one?
Do solid work and never chase after appearance.
Only self-willing and self-awakening could last.


When it could not go through it should be abandoned. Choices are to be made according to principles. Solid approaches and long-term considerations are adhered to by prudent persons.
