“天有不测风云,人有旦夕祸福。
蜈蚣百足,行不及蛇;雄鸡两翼,飞不过鸦。
马有千里之程,无骑不能自往;人有冲天之志,非运不能自通。”
                                                               ------《命运赋》
‘The weather is unpredictable as the destiny of people, who will be sticking in a plight in the morning and enjoying  happiness in the evening. 
Centipedes with one hundred legs can not walk as fast as  snakes; Cocks with two wings can not fly as fast as crows. 
A horse that can run a thousand miles can not reach the destination without a rider; People with a great ambition can not succeed without the help of destiny.'
                                                         --------'An Article On Destiny'

Accident or tomorrow, we do not know which one would come first. There is really something we can not control, change or predict. And the best way to deal with it is to follow the rules that has been set by something would be called god or destiny.  It is true that we can surely do so many things, inversely, there are also plenty of things that we can not do. We should know about what ability we have and the ceiling of our ability. 
But I don't think the old Chinese saying mentioned above is telling us to give up our faith, and completely follow the rules, even worse, live a negative life. What it tells us is to know about the rule of nature better, to know about ourselves better, and to better adjust ourselves in accordance with the rule that may can bring us a life in which we will not feel disappointed when encountering failure and over-confident when getting small achievement.  It teaches us just live the current life positively since there will always be an answer to what have happened, is happening and will happened to us.

    that is true.
    Perhaps we should cherish what we have and pursue what we want.

    We should always feel comfortable about the current economic condition although we are trying to improve it! Most foreign friends dislike to discuss personal income.  I think it is pleasure when I can fully make use of time to do meaning things.  Happiness lies much on self-satisfaction!~~
