Hey all!
Now I'm trying not to break any rules here but a friend found this scroll in an antique store and got it for me a few years ago. I've had it handing up in my living room for years and have no idea what it is lol. As far as i can tell could be a poem, a love letter, a recipe for cake..... I don't know.... It's pretty long and the calligraphy looks pretty stylized so I'm not asking for a lengthy translation, but if anyone could just tell me what it is, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

一分の善は九分の悪に勝つ
二分の借りは八分の貸しよりも恐るべし
三分の堪忍は七分の得あり
四分四分では何にもならず
五分五分の知恵を十分に使うべし
六分の正直者は信用して可なり
七分の生活に不足なし
八分の腹に医者いらず
九分の口に間違いなし
十分の働きに生活難なし

That's a kind of motto in life.
