【译文】大自然四季运转，春夏和暖万物就获得生长，秋冬寒冷万物就丧失生机。做人的道理也和大自然一样，一个性情高做冷漠的人，他所能得到的福分自 然就淡薄；只有那些个性温和而又热情助人的人，他获得的福分不但丰厚， 他的官位也会久长。
【英文译文】When the essence which pervades nature is warm it promotes the growth of the myriad things. When it is cold it tends to destroy the vitality of the myriad things. Therefore, when a man is cold in nature he receives little in the way of enjoyment. On the other hand, when a man is warm-hearted, he has lots of happiness and is the beneficiary of a constant stream of kindness.
When the atmosphere of heaven and earth is warm it speeds up the growth of all living beings; and when cold it suppresses. Thus we know that if a man gives cold shoulder to others, he will surely receive the same in return. Only those who are brimming with enthusiasm and ready to lend a hand could appreciate boundless fortune and endless gratitude.
