【英文译文】Those who indulge in luxury and extravagance always find it hard to make both ends meet. Far better off are the frugal people who, although they have not enough, feel that they have enough and to spare! A person of talent strives hard, and yet he only provokes widespread envy. Far better off is the bumpkin, who lives a comfortable life and preserves his innate nature!
A man lapped in luxury and extravagance always feels dissatisfied though he is rich enough. Would it be better for him to he be like that than to be a frugal man who is poor, and yet surplus? A gifted man often stores up complaints in his heart while working hard. Would it be better for him to be like that than to be a dull man who is incapable, and yet sincere and leisurely-minded?
