An old Chinese saying I like.

There is an old Chinese saying I like very much. "It is wise to suffer poverty and behave yourself when it is not the right time; You will someday have your day only if you keep fighting."(Shi Zao Bu Yu, Zhi Yi An Pin Shou fen; Xin Ruo Bu Xi, Bi Ding Yang Mei Tu Qi,时遭不遇,只宜安贫守分;心若不欺,必定扬眉吐气。)It is quite simple. What it really means is that when life is not going your way, you should not give up, instead, you should endure, keep fighting and wait for your time to come. I usually use it to encourage me and cheer me up, especially when I am feeling down and suffering a hardship. It really gives me some strength and encouragement. And I realize that when I am confused or going through hard time, I can always get some strength and encouragement from those articles written by our ancestors thousands years ago.

We should always feel comfortable about the current economic condition although we are trying to improve it! Most foreign friends dislike to discuss personal income.  I think it is pleasure when I can fully make use of time to do meaning things.  Happiness lies much on self-satisfaction!~~

    that is true.
    Perhaps we should cherish what we have and pursue what we want.
