如果沒有掙扎,就沒有進步。那些聲稱愛好自由,但輕視改革運動的人,是想要不犁地就收成的人,他們想要沒有打雷及閃電就有雨水。

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning.

Robert J. Ringer (勵志作者)

成功是有關瞭解並虔誠的實踐特定、簡單並永遠通向成功的習慣。

Success is a matter of understanding and religiously practicing specific simple habits that always lead to success.

只有那些不斷充實改造自己的人,才有機會在往後的日子持續被雇用。

Only those who constantly retool themselves stand a chance of staying employed in the years ahead.

我們因尋找一個問題的答案而沒找到它,比起學習答案本身所學到的還要多。

We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.

Daniel H. Burnham (設計師及都市規劃者)

別做小的計畫;它們沒有激起人們熱血的魔力而且很可能本身不會被實現。做大的計劃;瞄準高的希望及工作,記住一個高尚、合理的藍圖一旦紀錄下來就不會消失。

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably will themselves not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.

Aung San Suu Kyi (民運領袖)
Bark 2178423  340

消除愚昧是困難的,除非人們能在不受恐懼的束縛下擁有追求真相的自由。

It would be difficult to dispel ignorance unless there is freedom to pursue the truth unfettered by fear.

Donald Miller (作家)
Sunrise 2418450  340

我相信的事不是我說我相信的事;我相信的事是我做的事。

What I believe is not what I say I believe; what I believe is what I do.

Omar Bradley (將軍)
Barbary ape 2449127  340

這適用在日常生活如同它適用在戰場上:我們被付予一個生命而決定權是我們的 – 是要等環境替我們做決定還是要行動,且在行動中,真正活著。

This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle: We are given one life, and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind or whether to act and, in acting, to live.

William Somerset Maugham (作家)
Landscape 2020323  340

這是人生一件有趣的事;如果你除了最好的外拒絕接受任何事,你通常會得到它。

It’s a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.

Arnold Bennett (小說家)

任何改變,即便是通往更好的改變,總是伴隨著短處及不舒適。

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
