Hearing the footsteps of his teacher,

"This is natural," explained the teacher.
"Everything has to die and has just so long to live."
The student showed the shattered cup, saying,

in every pursuit or avocation,
to secure an adviser in a sensible woman.

for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you.

I would like to live a long life.

And I've seen the promised land.
I may not get there with you.
But I want you to know tonight, that we,
as a people, will get to the promised land.
