余的败笔,青春是个打个盹就过去的东西。 中年的包装主要是掩盖住岁月流过的痕迹。 如果你依然能够享受丰富 自信的生活并追求前沿的工作,你的气质定会独特不凡,风韵依然。 当生命之河一一经历了平原、高山和树林,老年人便会是美丽的。 你的生活达到了一种宁静的境界,淡泊名利、与世无争。无需去染黑 头发,因为那满头如学的白发正是一种仙境之美。 人该年轻时就年轻, 该年老时就年老, 这是与自然同步, 这就是和谐。 和谐就是美, 反之就是丑。 和老年人在一起就像读一本厚厚的精装书, 魅力无穷,令人爱不释手。 只要你了解自己所处的境地,就知道该如何包装自己,正如拥有合适 包装的商品会成为知名品牌。 Who we are
The only problem unconsciously assumed by all Chinese philosophers to be of any importance is: How shall we enjoy life, and who can best enjoy life? No perfectionism, no straining after the unattainable, no postulating of he unknowable; but taking poor, modal human nature as it is, how shall we organize our life so that we can woke peacefully, endure nobly and live happily?
Who are we? That is first question. It is a question almost impossible to answer. But we all agree with the busy self occupied in our daily activities is not quite the real self. We are quite sure we have lost something in the mere pursuit of living. When we watch a person running about looking for something in a field, the wise
man can set a puzzle for all the spectator to solve: what has that person lost? Some one thinks is a watch; another thinks it is a diamond brooch; and others will essay other guesses. After all the guesses have failed, the wise man who really doesn't know what the person is seeking after, tells the company:" I'll tell you. He has lost some breath." And no one can deny that he is right. So we often forget our true self in the pursuit of living, like a bird forgetting its own danger in pursuit of a mantis which again forgets its own danger in pursuit of another.
一切中国的哲学家在不知不觉中认为唯一重要的问题是: 我们要怎样享受人生?谁最会享受 人生?我们不追求十全十美的理想, 我们不寻找那些得不到的东西, 我们不要求知道那些不 得而知的东西; 我们只认识不完美的、 会死的人类的本性, 那么我们要怎样调整我们的人生, 使我们可以和平地工作着,旷达地忍耐着,幸福地生活着呢?
我们是谁呢?这是第一个问题。 这个问题几乎是无法答复的。 可是我们都承认在我们曰常活 动中那么忙碌的自我, 并不完全是真正的自我; 我们相信我们在生活的追求中已经失掉了一 些东西。 当我们看见一个人在一片田野里跑来跑去在寻找东西时, 智者可以弄出一个难题给 一切旁观者去解答:那个人失掉了什么东西呢?有的猜一只表;有的猜一支钻石胸针;其他 的人则作其他的猜测。 智者委实也不知道那个人在寻找什么东西; 可是当大家都猜不中的时 候,他会对大家说:“我告诉你们吧。他失掉了一些气息了。” 没有人会否认他的话是对的。 所以我们在生活的追求中常常忘掉了真正的自我, 像庄子在一个美妙的譬喻里所讲的那只鸟 那样, 为了要捕捉一只螳螂而忘掉自身的危险, 而那只螳螂又为了要捕捉一只蝉而忘掉自身 的危险。
Types of Friends
A Faraway Friend is someone you grew up with or went to school with or lived in the same town as until one of you moved away. Without a Faraway Friend, you
would never get any mail addressed in handwriting. A Faraway Friend calls late at night, invites you to her wedding, always says she is coming to visit but rarely shows up. An actual visit from a Faraway Friend is a cause for celebration and binges of all kinds. Cigarettes, Chips Ahoy, bottles of tequila.the Former Friend. A sad thing. At best a wistful memory, at worst a dangerous enemy who is in possession of many of your deepest secrets. But what was it that drove you apart? A misunderstanding, a betrayed confidence, an unrepaid loan, an ill-conceived flirtation. A poor choice of spouse can do in a friendship just like that. Going into business together can be a serious mistake. Time, money, distance, cult religions: all noted friendship killers.
A New Friend is a tonic unlike any other. Say you meet her at a party. In your bowling league. At a Japanese conversation class, perhaps. Wherever, whenever, there's that spark of recognition. The first time you talk, you can't believe how much you have in common. Suddenly, your life story is interesting again, your insights fresh, your opinion valued. Your various shortcomings are as yet completely invisible.
朋友的种类
远方的朋友和你一起长大或上同一所学校,直到其中一位搬走。没有远方的朋友,你可能永 远也收不到一封手写的信件。 远方的朋友半夜来访、 邀请你参加她的婚礼, 总是说要来看你, 但又很少露面。远方的朋友真的来看你时,那就要庆祝一下,自然要狂欢作乐一番,少不了 香烟、土豆片、欢呼声和一瓶瓶的龙舌兰酒。
啊,过去的朋友,一件令人伤怀的事。最好的能留给你一个情意绵绵的回忆;最糟糕的拥有 你的许多机密从而成为你危险的敌人。但到底是什么使你们分手的?误解、泄密、未偿还的 贷款或恶意的调情。 对配偶选择不当也会带来同样的后果。 合伙经商可能是一个严重的错误。 时间、金钱、距离、邪教都是有名的友谊杀手。
新朋友就像一种与众不同的补品。比如说你在一个晚会上或保龄球俱乐部联合会上遇见了 她,也许在一个日本会话课上。随时随地,都会产生撞击的火花。刹那间,你的人生经历再 次生动起来,你的见解新颖独到,你的观点得到器重,而你的各种缺点却全然不见了.
生命的价值不依赖我们的所作所为,也不仰仗我们结交的人物,而是取决于我们本身!我们 是独特的??永远不要忘记这一点!
You are special
A well-know speaker started on his seminar by holding up a $20 bill in the room of 2
  00.
He asked,who would like this $20 bill.Hands started going up.He said,I'm going to give this $20 to one of you,but first,let me do this.He proceeded to crumple the $20 note up.
He then asked,who still wants it? Still the hands were up in the air. Well,he replied,what if I do this? He dropped it on the ground,and started to ground into the floor with his shoe.He picked it up,now,crumpled and dirty.
Now,who still wants it?Still the hands went into the air.
My friends,you have all learned a very valuable lesson,no matter what I did to the money,you still want it.Because it did not decrease in value.It was still worth $
  20.
Many times in our lives,we are dropped,crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make,and circumstances that come away. We feel as though we are worthless.But no matter what happened,or what will happen,you will never lose your value.Dirty or clean,crumpled or finally creased,you are still priceless to those who love you.The worst of your lives comes not in what we do ,or who we know,but by who we are.You are special.Don't ever forget it.
在一次讨论会上,一位著名的演说家没讲一句开场白,手里却高举着一张 20 美元的钞票。
面对会议室里的 200 个人,他问:“谁要这 20 美元?”一只只手举了起来。他接着说:“我 打算把这 20 美元送给你们中的一位,但在这之前,请准许我做一件事。”他说着将钞票揉 成一团,然后问:“谁还要?”仍有人举起手来。
他又说:“那么,假如我这样做又会怎么样呢?”他把钞票扔到地上,又踏上一只脚,并且用 脚碾它。尔后他拾起钞票,钞票已变得又脏又皱。现在谁还要?”还是有人举起手来。
朋友们,你们已经上了一堂很有意义的课。无论我如何对待那张钞票,你们还是想要它,因 为它并没贬值,它依旧值 20 美元。
人生路上,我们会无数次被自己的决定或碰到的逆境击倒、欺凌甚至碾得粉身碎骨。我们觉 得自己似乎一文不值。但无论发生什么,或将要发生什么,在上帝的眼中,你们永远不会丧 失价值。在他看来,肮脏或洁净,衣着齐整或不齐整,你们依然是无价之宝。”生命的价值 不依赖我们的所作所为, 也不仰仗我们结交的人物, 而是取决于我们本身! 我们是独特的?? 永远不要忘记这一点!
Success in life
Success means different things for different people. Some may equate it with fame, some with wealth and still some with accomplishments. For me, it means fulfilling one's dreams. Whatever your dreams are, you have a goal there and then focus all your attention on it. Dreams bring you hope and happiness. In the process of struggling for it, you cry, sweat, complain or even curse, but the joy of harvesting makes you forget all the pains and troubles you have gone through. So an old proverb says that the sweetest fruit is one that has undergone the bitterest ordeal.
There are several keys to success. First, your goal must be practical and practicable. If you set your goal too high, chances are that you will never attain it. Next, you have to make a plan of doing it. You can take some steps to realize it. Since the process is quite tough, you need to be diligent, patient and persevering. Even if you meet with some difficulties or frustrations, just take them in your stride. You can always tell yourself that there is nothing insurmountable. With this will and determination, success is sure to wait for you at the end of the tunnel!
成功对于不同的人来说意义不同。 一些人将它等同于声望, 有人将它等同于财富另一些人将 它等同于成就。对我来说,成功意味着完成一个人的梦想。不管你的梦想是什么,你有一个 目标并且为之倾注心力。梦想带给你希望和幸福。在为之奋斗的过程中,你流泪,流汗,抱 怨甚至诅咒, 但是收获的快乐会令你忘却着所有你所经历的痛苦与艰辛。 所以一句老话说最 甜蜜的果实是在最艰苦的奋斗后得来的。
这里有一些成功的秘诀。首先,你的目标必须现实可行。如果你制定的目标太高,你也许会 永远无法达到。 再者, 又必须为之制定计划。 你可以分步骤地实现他。 因为过程将是艰苦的, 你必须勤奋,耐心,坚持不懈。即使你遇见了困难与挫折,也要将之克服。你要总是告诉自 己没有什么事不能克服的。带着这样的决心,成功必然在道路的尽头等着你。
YOUTH
Youth is not a time of life,it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees, it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions.it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.
Youth means a tempera-mental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of
  20. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.
Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spring back to dust.
whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonder, 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, you and I will remain young.
When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are upto catch waves of optimism, there is hope you may have young heart at
  80.
青春不是生命的一瞬,它是一种自然的心境;青春不是如花的脸庞、鲜红的嘴唇和健康柔润 的双腿,它是一 种意志、想象、精力,更是生命中那生机勃勃的春天。
青春是冲动的勇敢而不是懦弱,青春是挑战的欲望而不是安逸的生活。即使年过花甲,仍壮心 不已.没有人痴长 百岁,而伴随着的是我们抛却幻想,锤炼生活的经历。
岁月让我们的皮肤起了皱纹,但缺乏激情会让我们的灵魂萎缩。焦虑、恐惧、缺乏自信则让 心稽首,更让心灵 的青春尘封
无论 60 岁还是 16 岁,我们每个人都有着天生的好奇心、孩子般刨根追底不厌其烦的渴求 欲望、幻想游戏人生 的生活方式。 在你我心中有着心灵的默契: 只要我们的心还能从人们的身上和大自然的怀抱 中感受到美丽、 希望、快乐、勇气和力量,那么我们依旧年轻无限。
当幻想破灭,而你愤世嫉俗,对生活充满悲观情绪,那么你已经老了。即使在 20 岁的时候, 只要你积极乐观的追求你心中的幻想,一直
