Cease Complaining

Yutang Lin

Cease complaining to reduce bothering;
In leisure enthusiasm and joy spring up.
Adapting to situations needs less effort;
Doing one's utmost to gain inner peace.


Not blaming others nor cursing the situation one is in, only then could the mind stay quiet and the matter on hand become simplified. Operate according to given conditions to reduce unnecessary waste of one's energy and resources. Doing one's share so that in reflection one will not feel ashamed.
