【英文译文】If Heaven has not granted me enough happiness I keep increasing my store of virtue to supplement this small portion. If Heaven inflicts hardship and suffering upon me I will seek ease of mind to make amends for it. If Heaven sends disasters my way I will try to pull through by pursuing the truth. So what, then, can Heaven do to me?
Should the fate make my fortune inadequate, I would increase the store of my virtue to replenish it. Should the fate make my body exhausted in labor, I would relax my mind to remedy it. Should the fate make my life unfavorable, I would enhance my moral principles to smooth it. That way, what, then, can the fate do to me?
If heaven begrudges me good fortune, I can challenge it by making bountiful my merits; if heaven toils my body, I can compensate by resting my mind; if heaven makes difficult my circumstances, I can make them easy by promoting my moral cultivation. What then can heaven do to me?
