  Knowledge or Experience
  Which is more important in life,knowledge from the books you read,or personal experience you gain in reality? The answer may vary from person to person. The young,educated may emphasize the former, and the old may stress the later. But in my opinion,they are of the same importance.
  Experience is priceless. How to become an efficient secretary? How to prepare for your first child to come into the world? There is so much experience we need in careers,in life and even in academic studies. It helps one deal with the problems with ease and confidence. Especially activities and to accumulate experience of different kinds is more crucial.
  Experience,however,is limited in terms of time and space. For one thing, it is impossible for anyone to experience all the important events and meet all the famous people. For another, as the speed with which skills are obsolete and new problems crop up is unprecedented because of the fast development of society,experience is far less adequate. Depending too much on it only leads to narrow-mindedness and prejudice.
  One way to compensate for it is to read books. Books of various kinds can bring us almost unlimited additional experience. From books you can not only trace back to the wisdom of our antecedents,but keep up with the latest developments of science and technology. To be sure, it's secondhand experience. But it is the ideal supplement to our own limited experience. Few of us can travel around the world, or live long beyond one hundred years,but all of us can live many lives by reading books.
  Both book knowledge and personal experience are essential. While experience makes one more resourceful, book knowledge makes one more learned.

  An ldentity of One's own
  In the eternal universe, every human being has a one-off chance to live-his existence is unique and irretrievable, for the mold with which he was made, as Rousseau said, was broken by God immediately after-wards.
  Fame, wealth and knowledge are merely worldly possessions that are within the reach of anybody striving for them. But your experience of and feelings about life are your own and not to be shared. No one can live your life over again after your death. A full awareness of this will point out to you that the most important thing in your existence is your distinctive individuality or something special of yours. What really counts is not your worldly success but your peculiar insightsintosthe meaning of life and your commitment to it, which add luster to your personality.
  It is not easy to be what one really is. There is many a person in the world who can be identified as anything-either his job, his status or his social role-that shows no trace about his individuality. It does do him justice to say that he has no identity of his own, if he doesn't know his own mind and all his things are either arranged by others or done on others suggestions; if his life, always occupied by external things, is completely void of an inner world. You won t be able to find anything whatever, from head to heart, that truly belongs to him. He is, indeed, no more than a shadow cast by somebody else or a ma-chine capable of doing business.
  活出个性
  在茫茫宇宙间,每个人只有一次生存的机会,那是一个独一无二、不可重复的存在。正像卢梭所说的,上帝把你造出来后,就把那个属于你的特定的模子打碎了。
  名声、财富、知识只是身外之物,人人都可求而得之,但没有人能够代替你感受人生。你死之后,没有人能够代替你再活一次。如果你真正意识到了这一点,你就会明白:活在世上,最重要的事就是活出你自己的特色和滋味来。你的人生是否有意义,衡量的标准不是外在的成功,而是你对人生意义的独特领悟和坚守,从而使你的自我闪放出个性的光华。
  真正活出自己的个性不是一件容易的事。世上有许多人,你说他是什么都行,例如是一种职业,一种身份,一个角色,但惟独不是他自己。如果一个人总是按别人的意见生活,没自己的独立思考,总是为外在的事务忙碌,没有自己的内心生活,那么,说他不是他自己就一点儿也没有冤枉他。因为确确实实,从他的头脑到他的心灵,已经找不到丝毫真正属于他自己的东西了,他只是别人的一个影子或是一架干活的机器罢了。

  Love and Friendship
  Emily Bront? (1818-1848)
  Love is like the wild rose-briar;
  Friendship like the holly-tree*.
  The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms*,
  But which will bloom most constantly?
  *The wild rose-briar is sweet in spring,
  Its summer blossoms scent the air;
  Yet wait till winter comes again,
  And who will call the wild-briar fair? *
  Then, scorn the silly rose-wreath now,
  And deck thee with holly′s sheen,
  That, when December blights thy brow,
  He still may leave thy garland green.*
  *爱情像野玫瑰,友情像冬青。
  当玫瑰开花的时候,冬青却墨绿着,表示爱情激烈而友情则平淡。
  哪种能保持盛开的状态,答案当然是后者。
  *野玫瑰在春天和夏天开花,花香四溢。
  但是到了冬天,谁会说它漂亮呢?
  表示爱情之花盛开的时候十分甜蜜,但过了高潮,就不再值得称道了。
  *冬青在平时不很惹眼,甚至遭人唾弃,但当冬天来临,万物皆枯萎的时候,
  花园里的它还充满生机和活力。
  表示友情平时可能不为人所重视或注意,但在人们遇到困难,没有其他出路
  的时候,它可能成为你的希望所在。
