(A) 隨遇而安: 能安於所處的環境。

 

Translation: 

1.  (able to) be at ease with one’s current situation.

2.  (able to) reconcile oneself to any situation

3.  (able to) feel comfortable with the current situation.

4.  (able to) feel at ease under all circumstances

5.  (able to) bring oneself to accept the current situation.

6.  (able to) feel at ease with one’s current situation.

7.  (able to) feel at ease with whatever circumstances they are.

 

For example:

三俠五義˙第六十七回:「出家人隨遇而安,並無菴觀寺院,隨方居住。」

Monks are able to feel at ease under all circumstances, taking shelter in any area, out of placement in the comfort of a temple.

 

(B)「隨遇而安」後亦用來比喻安於現狀,不思長進。

孟子盡心章:言聖人之心,不以貧賤而有慕於外,不以富貴而有動於中,隨遇而安,無預於己,所性分定故也。」

 

For example:

It's easier to rely on companions than it is to be in a constant state of emergency, never allowing yourself to be at ease with your current situation.

 

(C)「隨遇而安」:不論處在順境或逆境,都能依著自己的步調前進,不慌亂,不隨波逐流,不論在任何環境任何情況之下都能很快習慣適應。 

 

For example:
John feels at ease with whatever circumstances they are, be it favorable or undesirable. He is able to move forward with his own pace, without panic, nor following suits. He is able to be at ease under all circumstances.
