居家閒是福
處事忍為高

(Jūjiā xián shì fú
chǔshì rěn wèi gāo
)

These 2 verses are a Chinese proverb about life.

My tentative translation: "At home, it's a blessing to organize yourself so that you can have spare time.

Outside, the best is to act with virtue and restraint."

The two key characters in this proverb are Xian (spare time) and Ren (virtue, tolerance, patience...).

A retired Chinese teacher surnamed 'Ping An' (Haromious Tranquility) wrote this calligraphy. The style of his brush strokes is semi-cursive. This scroll is a handwritten original, not a reproduction.

This scroll measures 55 cm x 31 cm.
