Message for high school students

One of my favorite inscriptions is “人間万事塞翁が馬 (ningen banji saiou ga uma).” This is often translated into English as “A joyful evening may follow a sorrowful morning” or “Fortune is unpredictable and changeable,” but I like its basic meaning of “You don’t have to be glad and sad by turns.”
