Translation - English ＃＃When riding high and basking in glory, don't let that get into your head. For humiliation lurks nearby. When overwhelmed by troubles and destitution, don't waste away in sorrow. For good fortune follows at the end of one's rope.
## In the good old days, people enjoyed living leisurely. Today everybody runs a rat race throughout life. Folks of old gained something substantial. People of today squander their life away in futility, indulge in vanity and run after untruths. For they understand neither the real essence of physical existence, nor the true meaning of spiritual being.
