THIS IS A CLASSIC
Three contractors - one from Soweto , another from Pretoria , and the third from Benoni, are bidding to fix a broken fence at the Union Buildings in Pretoria ..
They go with a Union Buildings official to examine the fence...
The Pretoria contractor takes out a tape measure, does some measuring,and then works some figures with a pencil.
Well, he says, I figure the job will run about R900.
R400 for materials, R400 for my crew, and R100 profit for me.
The Benoni contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, I can do this job for R700 : R300 for materials, R300 for my crew, and R100 profit for me.
The Soweto contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the Union Buildings official and whispers, R2,700.00
The official, incredulous, says, You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?
The Soweto contractor whispers back, R1000 for me, R1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Benoni to fix the fence.
Done! replies the government official.
And that, folks, is how it all works many other countries, these days !

Without a heart of integrity, a man will dare to take anything
without a heart of shame, a man will dare to commit any wrong
If he does not know the end is destruction and pain, then he has no fallbacks
If he knows integrity and shame, and knows that his actions will come back to hurt him, then he will not dare to do the wrong.參考資料： myself

People do not have a clean heart, dare anything; there is no sense of shame, anything dare to doDon't know their fate is evil and suffering, there is no concernUnderstanding shame, embarrassed to do know is actually killing themselves, it would have been afraid to make

Even though I disliked the story, here is the translation you wanted.
He who has no integrity within, steal any thing as wanted without;
He who has no shame within, does any thing as desired without.
He who cares little of consequence for self, less for justices.
Once be reckoned with shame and integrity, she does no wrong, for that
not only she bears the consequences but also other innocents.
