As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way: government, society, and even the sun, moon and stars.

人が、その本分を忘れないかぎり、すべてのものは、うまくいく。政府にせよ、社会にせよ、太陽や月や星にせよ。

"Three Rules of Work:
Out of clutter find simplicity;
From discord find harmony;
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."
               
仕事の3つのルール。
乱雑さからシンプルなものを見つける。
不和から調和を見つける。
困難の中に機会がある。
