以言语讥人,取祸之大端; 以度量容人,集福之要术。

以言语讥人,取祸之大端;
以度量容人,集福之要术;
以势力折人,招尤之未远;
以道德化人,得誉之流长。
以舍为有,则不贪;
以忙为乐,则不苦;
以勤为富,则不贫;
以忍为力,则不惧。

弘一法师

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
