【英文译文】A true benefactor does not regard himself as doing good deeds, nor does he regard others as the recipients of his kindness. A Chinese peck of rice given in such a spirit is worthy a granary. But when an alms-giver expects some requital for his largesse, even though he gives away a fortune, it is not worth a copper coin.
A true benefactor should neither bear in mind nor give publicity to the good turns he has done to others. Thus, a wee bit of alms will result in boundless gratitude. But if the donator harps on the largess he has given to others and seeks for return, then his merits will not be worth a cent even though he has spent millions of gold to help.
