One of the reasons people in a vicious addiction - idleness. When he had tilled the land, engaged in trade, how could he lead an idle life?

Let your choice be the right in life. Own translation of A. Kunanbayev verse

Let your choice be the right in life,

Being talented you may be proud;

Be a brickhard in all your strives -

Whatever may dreams be about.

 

Running far – may you see WHERE TO,

If you follow – be sure WHOM;

Will and reason may lead you too,

Holy justice may be your doom!

 

You’re alive if you have clear mind,

Neither kindness nor truth will stay;

Always fire ahead – ice behind

And to trouble escape there’s no way.

 

Hold the greedy rush always back,

Never seek for appraise – just watch;

Hide the drawbacks in empty sack -

Struggling winner in modest lodge.

 

Being boastful of brilliant life

Never dream you can others beat -

People, envious in their strive -

Will just  knock you down your feet.

 

Boldly step, may your foot be firm;

All your strives will not pass away;

Words, that teach to survive in a storm-

Will give sprouts in ground - like grain.
