Remarks on patience in weakness and hope of better days گفتار در صبر بر ناتوانی به امید بهی

Bustan Saadi بوستان سعدی

In a gen’rous man’s spirit perfection is bred;
If no money he owns, what’s the harm or the dread?
کمال است در نفس مرد کریم
گرش زر نباشد چه نقصان و سیم؟
Were a miser with Crcssus in riches to range,
Do not think that his miserly spirit would change!
مپندار اگر سفله قارون شود
که طبع لئیمش دگرگون شود
If a liberal person obtains not his bread,
His spirit is rich, just as if he were fed.
وگر درنیابد کرم پیشه، نان
نهادش توانگر بود همچنان
The giving’s the ground and the means, the sown field;
Bestow! that the root fertile branches may yield.
مروت زمین است و سرمایه زرع
بده کاصل خالی نماند ز فرع
I would wonder where God, who makes man out of clay,
To make his humanity vanish away.
خدایی که از خاک مردم کند
عجب باشد ار مردمی گم کند
In hoarding up wealth, do not strive to excel!
For water when stagnant emits a bad smell.
ز نعمت نهادن بلندی مجوی
که ناخوش کند آب استاده بوی
In munificence labour! for water that flows,
By the favour of Heav’n to a mighty flood grows!
به بخشندگی کوش کآب روان
به سیلش مدد میرسد ز آسمان
If a miser should fall from his wealth and estate,
Very rarely again will his riches be great. 
گر از جاه و دولت بیفتد لئیم
دگر باره نادر شود مستقیم
If you are a jewel of worth, do not fret!
For Time will not cause your existence to set
وگر قیمتی گوهری غم مدار
که ضایع نگرداندت روزگار
A clod may be lying exposed on the way;
Yet I do not see any one heed to it pay.
کلوخ ارچه افتاده بینی به راه
نبینی که در وی کند کس نگاه
If a clipping of gold should escape from the shears,
With a candle they search for it, till it appears.
وگر خرده زر ز دندان گاز
بیفتد، به شمعش بجویند باز
From the heart of a stone they can crystal obtain;
Where under the rust does a mirror remain?
بدر میکنند آبگینه ز سنگ
کجا ماند آیینه در زیر زنگ؟
The manners must please and exhibit much grace,
For coming and going are Fortune and Place.
هنر باید و فضل و دین و کمال
که گاه آید و گه رود جاه و مال
