"Moderation in all things" nghĩa là gì?

"Moderation in all things" = điều độ trong mọi việc -> làm mọi việc đều có sự tiết chế, điều độ nhất định, không thừa không thiếu, không ít quá cũng không nhiều quá.

Ví dụ
While it's smart to set small goals (mục tiêu nhỏ), it's also OK to rest and not feel the need to do much at all. Moderation in all things remains important — and that includes substances like alcohol.

If you are too impulsive (bốc đồng), you'll need to backtrack in a few days time. Moderation in all things is always a good motto (phương châm). Under the Full Moon, you will be secretive (giấu giếm), playing your cards close to your chest. It's emotionally more intense, so don't magnify (phóng đại) situations or comments into anything bigger than they are.

The ancient Greeks and Romans were building temples and baths with running hot and cold water, eating grapes and discussing politics while most of our ancestors (tổ tiên) were still scratching (bới) in the dirt. Why? I think the brilliance (rực rỡ) of these cultures and their success beyond the rest of the world's civilisations (nền văn minh) came down to their adherence (tôn trọng) of an ancient Greek saying: "Moderation in all things."
