When a child is born, the mother is in danger; when money is amassed,
Thieves await their chance.
What joy, then, cannot become a sorrow?
Because of poverty, we use thrift; because of illness,
We take care of our health.
What sorrow, then, cannot become a joy?
Therefore, the man of attainment
Regards prosperity and reversal as the same,
And forgets both joy and sorrow.
