青春

 

  Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of what’s next and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station: so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long are you young.
  无论是60岁还是16岁,你需要保持永不衰竭的好奇心、永不熄灭的孩提般求知的渴望和追求事业成功的欢乐与热情。在你我的心底,有一座无线电台,它能在多长时间里接收到人间万物传递来的美好、希望、欢乐、鼓舞和力量的信息,你就会年轻多长时间。
  An individual human existence should be like a river—small at first, narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past boulders and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their individual being.
  人的生命应当像河流,开始是涓涓细流,受两岸的限制而十分狭窄,尔后奔腾咆哮,翻过危岩,飞越瀑布,河面渐渐开阔,河岸也随之向两边隐去,最后水流平缓,森森无际,汇入大海之中,个人就这样毫无痛苦地消失了。
  Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of sixty more than a boy of twenty. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.
  青春意味着战胜懦弱的那股大丈夫气概和摈弃安逸的那种冒险精神。往往一个60岁的老者比一个20岁的青年更多一点这种劲头。人老不仅仅是岁月流逝所致,更主要的是不思进取的结果。
  Years may wrinkle the skin,but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.
  光阴可以在颜面上留下印记,而热情之火的熄灭则在心灵上刻下皱纹。烦恼、恐惧、缺乏自信会扭曲人的灵魂,并将青春化为灰烬!

卓越仅仅是个习惯

 

  Our character, basically, is a composite of our habits. “Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny,” the maxim goes.
  人的品德基本上是又习惯组成的。 俗语说;思想决定行动,行动决定习惯,习惯决定品德,品德决定命运。
  Habits are powerful factors in our lives. Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character and produce our effectiveness or ineffectiveness.
  习惯对我们的生活有绝大的影响,因为他是一贯的。 在不知不觉中, 经年累月影响着我们的品德,暴露出我们的本性,左右着我们的成败。
  As Horace Mann, the great educator, once said, “Habits are like a cable. We weave a strand of it everyday and soon it cannot be broken.” I personally do not agree with the last part of his expression. I know habits can be learned and unlearned. But I also know it isn't a quick fix. It involves a process and a tremendous commitment.
  美国着名教育家曼恩曾说:“习惯就仿佛是一条缆绳,我们每天为他缠上一股新索,不要多久就会变得牢不可破。”这句话的后半段我不敢苟同,我相信习惯可以养成,也可以打破,但绝不是一蹴而就,而是需要长期的努力和无比的毅力。
  Those of us who watched the lunar voyage of Apollo 11 were transfixed as we saw the first men walk on the moon and return to earth. But to get there, those astronauts literally had to break out of the tremendous gravity pull of the earth. More energy was spent in the first few minutes of lift-off, in the first few miles of travel, than was used over the next several days to travel half a million miles.
  宇航员搭乘阿波罗11号太空船,首次登陆月球的刹那,的确令人叹为观止。但宇航员得先摆脱地球强大的引力,才能飞往月球。由此在刚发射的几分钟,也就是整个任务一开始的几英里之内,是最艰难的时刻,所耗的力量往往超越往后的几十万英里。
  Habits, too, have tremendous gravity pull- more than most people realize or would admit. Breaking deeply imbedded habitual tendencies such as procrastination, impatience, criticalness, or selfishness that violate basic principles of human effectiveness involves more than a little willpower and a few minor changes in our lives. “Lift off” takes a tremendous effort, but once we break out of the gravity pull, our freedom takes on a whole new dimension.
  习惯也是一样,它具有极大的引力,只是许多人不加注意或不肯承认了。想要革除因循苟且,缺乏耐心,吹毛求疵或自私自利等不良习性,若是缺乏意志力,不能大刀阔斧的改革,便难以实现目标。“起飞”需要极大的努力,然而一旦脱离重力的牵绊,我们便可享受前所未有的自由。
  Like any natural force, gravity pull can work with us or against us. The gravity pull of some of our habits may currently be keeping us from going where we want to go. But it is also gravity pull that keeps our world together, that keeps the planets in their orbits and our universe in order. It is a powerful force, and if we use it effectively, we can use the gravity pull of habit to create the cohesiveness and order necessary to establish effectiveness in our lives.
  习惯的引力就如同自然界所有的力量一般,可以为我们所用,也可能危害我们,关键看我们如何运用。不过,习惯或许一时有碍于达到目标,但也有积极的一面。宇宙万物各循轨道运行,彼此保持一定的秩序,毕竟也都有赖于引力的作用。所以只要我们善于运用习惯的庞大引力,就能使生活有重心,有秩序,有效率。
