Nations & Customs
Zhu Family Instructions

1

The growing of rice and of grain
Think on whenever you dine;
Remember how silk is obtained
Which keeps you warm and looks fine.

2

In periods of drought
Wise birds mend their nest
So when the clouds burst
They snugly may rest;
Never be the fool
Who starts to dig a well in the ground
When he wants a drink of water
And water can"t be found.

3

Bargain you not with the traveler who vends;
Share of your wealth with your neighbors and friends.

4

Don"t take into court your family disputes,
Unpleasant endings emerge from lawsuits;

To comport yourself well in society,
Restrain loose tongue"t impropriety.

5

Use not your bow and arrow
To bully orphan and widow.
Do not dumb animals slaughter at will
Your appetite greedy to over fulfill.

6

Egocentric people grow
Much regret and sorrow;
Lazy, slothful people sow
Poverty tomorrow.

7

In proclaiming your virtues go slow;
And be mindful of mercy you own.

8

Leave room for retreat
When trying new feat.
You will try, try in vain
To repeat windfall gain.

9

Don"t envy other"t success;
Don"t gloat or other"t distress.

10

To brag of the good you have done
Will never impress anyone.
Personal scandals you try hard to hide
Will soon be known far and wide.
