Do not push forward a waggon ; –
You will only raise the dust about yourself.
Do not think of all your anxieties ; –
You will only make yourself ill.

Do not push forward a waggon ; –
The dust will only blind you.
Do not think of all your anxieties ; –
You will not emerge from imperfect views.

Do not push forward a waggon ; –
The dust will only becloud you.
Do not think of all your anxieties ; –
You will only weigh yourself down.
