This is the 10th issue. Every issue publishes the previous issue's winner...

Oh. Never mind.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

人的一生就像在跷跷板上行走
Life is like walking on the seesaw.
总是得从低的那一头开始往高处走
It always happen that you start from the lower end to the higher.
每走一步,下一步就变得更加困难
One step ahead will make the next more difficult.
愈往高处走时,便愈难找到平衡
The higher you have got to, the harder you will find the balance.
但你以为自己越来越高时,其实你已开始在走下坡路了
Once you thought you are higher and higher, you are in fact gradually stepping downward.
于是你发现你永远无法站上你眼中所见的高点
Then you find you will never reach the highest spot in your eyes.
来来回回挣扎许多次,你发现要站上高点是多么的困难,因为你始终无法找到平衡点
Again and again, you have made your greatest efforts, only to find how hard to climb to the apex for you will never find the rest point
终于有一天你承认道:原来只有找到人生的平衡点时,就是最高点
Finally you admit one day that where you get the balanced point in life is the acme.

Life is like walking along a seesaw.
You have to walk from the bottom to the top.
With each step you take the next step becomes harder.
As you get higher it gets harder to find your balance.
When you think your getting higher and higher,
you've actually already started to descend.
At the end you find that it's impossible to reach the heights you see in your mind's eye.
After struggling back and forth many times,
You discover how hard it is to stand at the peak,
because from start to finish you can't find a balance.
Eventually there comes a day when you realise:
it turns out when you find life's balance,
that is the summit.
路见不平一声吼啊,该出手时就出手。

Life is like walking on a seesaw.  
Always start from the lower end going upwards.


With each step you take, you will find the next step more difficult than the last.


The higher you go, the harder it is to balance yourself.


Just when you thought you're going higher and higher, you've actually started to go downwards.


Hence, you realize that you'll never be able to reach the top that you've perceived.


A lot of times you'll struggle and find out how difficult it is to stand on the top because you couldn't find your balance all along.


Eventually, you’ll realize that you’ve reached the top only when you find the balance in your life.

Life is like walking on a seesaw.
You always have to begin from the bottom to go toward the top.
Every step makes the next one more difficult.
The higher you go, the harder it is to find your balance.  
Just when you believe that you are still getting higher and higher, you have in fact already begun your decline.  
Therefore you realize that you can never attain the highest point that your eye can see.  
After much struggle to and fro, you realize how difficult it is to attain the highest point, because you are unable to find the point of equilibrium.   
Eventually you will admit: in fact, the place of equilibrium is the tallest peak.
