I am sure people don't mind helping but if as you say the curiosity is stronger why not start learning Chinese :D

It's text from the 朱子家训, the "Master Zhu's family instructions", a set of admonishments by the famous neo-Confucian philosopher Zhu Xi ETA On desktop now and checking find it's not by Zhu Xi at all, but a later writer called 朱用纯  Sorry for the misinformation. The one quote about thinking about where your rice and gruel came from visible in your picture was used by Xi Jinping in a fairly recent speech apparently.

Found a translation of it under his courtesy name: http://pages.ucsd.edu/~dkjordan/chin/chtxts/JuBorlu-English.pdf You can see maxims two and three in your picture.
