It’s good to learn every profession, for you the rank will not be luck,
If you have no occupation, Ibrat, in distress you’ll get stuck.
When a man does a good job, he will be happy and glad,
Lazy ones despairingly with the knife will hit the head.
Indeed, newspapers are a language for population,
They consist of good and bad interpretation.
Those who never read or always ignore papers
Are like the dead or like a sluggish, sleeping nation.
Being cultured is like living in peace,
Possessing ethics and good manner is bliss.
To live in a civilized land is nice,
It’s like you enjoy life in paradise.
For the people culture is enjoyment,
They know not what’s misery or torment.
Envious or greedy: every person dies,
You draw the moral, you see it with your eyes.
Money or wheat will not fall down for you from the sky,
Do yourself your own stuff, on other people don’t rely.
Let everyone take an example from the meaning of these words,
An idler will get a poison and a hard-worker – a pie.
This world for you is transient, guessing,
Every single thing is a blessing.
If you don’t want to get astray,
Study, do crafts, don’t stay on the way!
Do not pick flowers in vain, before the gardener feel shy,
It’s good to give them a longer life, do not force the blooms to dry.
If you always tell the truth, you should believe it strongly,
Don’t justify yourself to those who understand you wrongly.
Study, knowledge and wisdom for you are a benediction,
If you are learned, in every effort there will not be a restriction,
The ignorant’s life, however, will be always in affliction,
Novelty is quick-wittedness, keep out of dereliction.
