To ridicule people with speech will rally great troubles, to forgive people with magnanimity is the principle way to collect blessings;
To subdue people with power will soon rally grudges, to influence people with virtues will gain ever-lasting reputation;
A man will not be greedy as long as he could take letting go as to possess; a man will not feel suffering as long as he could enjoy being occupied by his work.
A man will not be poor as long as he could take diligence as his wealth; a man will not fear as long as he could take forbearance as his power.
~ dharma quote by contemporary Chinese eminent monk Great Master Hong Yi
