Chinese calligraphy translation request

My grandmother passed recently, and her three children needed three containers for her ashes. They bought these tea canisters, and want to make sure that the containers say what the box says. Also, we want to know which container says what. I am gonna link to the photo instead of posting it because I took it in large resolution: Here. It's supposed to say: "A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song".

Any help is appreciated, thank you.
