若能以「牛馬」精神服務大眾,必為大家尊敬

若能以「龍象」姿態成就事業,必為社會中堅

面對榮耀時,不要患得患失,要以克制為良方

Facing trouble,don't be sad and weep, but transform sorrow to strength.

Facing grievance,don't sigh and be disappointed, but shoulder it with patience.

Facing temptation, don't be lost, but sail on with meditation, and mindfulness.

Facing honor, don't calculate gain or loss, but be restrained.
