唔怕命蹇


《唔怕命蹇》
招子庸作,金文泰譯

唔怕命蹇,縂要你心堅!捨得心堅,愁冇一箇月老哀憐?莫話命蹇時乖你就尋箇短見,半世冇一日開懷恐怕你做鬼亦冤。若係話刊定板八箇字生成,唔到你算。又未知到後來真定假,未必有個食飯神仙。大抵人事都要盡番或者時運會轉。唉!休要自怨!莫話好事難如願。若係堅心寧耐等,就係破鏡都會重圓。

Fear not Fate the miser!

Fear not Fate the miser; still be ye strong of heart!
If your heart be strong, why grieve that no spirit in the moon has pity on you?
Say not that fate is a miser and times are adverse, nor seek short shrift on that account.
Not once in half a life-time have you unburdened your bosom; I fear me your very ghost will be wan with grief.
If you say your horoscope was graven immutably at your birth, then ‘tis lost labour to have your fortune told.
Yet none know whether such augury be true or false; never yet was a saint without fasting.
In fine it behoves you to fulfil your destiny; maybe the luck will turn.
Ah! Cease repining for yourself.
Say not that good things scarce match your desire.
If with strong heart you wait patiently, the broken mirror will again perfect its orb.
