任何停止學習的人都是老人,不管是二十歲或八十歲。任何持續學習的人都可以保持年青。生命裡最美好的事就是讓你的心智保持年青。

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

Thomas Jefferson (美國第三任總統)

學習從別人的災難中看到你該避免的弊端。

Learn to see in another’s calamity the ills that you should avoid.

冒險是一種心態,一種精神。它來自信念,因為有了絕對的信念,你將不再有恐懼無論生或死。

Adventure is a state of mind – and spirit. It comes with faith, for with complete faith, there is no fear of what faces you in life or death.

梯子的梯級從來就不是拿來作停留用的,而是用來暫時支撐一個人的腳好讓他的另一腳能夠再抬更高。

The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.

當你陷入僵局且諸事不順直到你好像無法再多撐一分鐘時,此時絕不要放棄,因為就是在這個地點及時間形勢即將反轉。

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

我覺得工作最大的報酬是讓我有機會工作更多。

I feel that the greatest reward for doing is the opportunity to do more.

Thomas Edison (發明家)
Coast 1031418  340

有人可能會認為一個發明的金錢價值就是對一位熱愛自己工作的人的報酬。但以我自己的例子,我可以誠實的說並非如此… 我一直發現最大的樂趣,也就是我的報酬,於世人所謂成功之前的工作裡。

One might think that the money value of an invention constitutes its reward to the man who loves his work. But speaking for myself, I can honestly say this isn’t so… I continue to find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.

人的一生自始至終有三種渴望他們試著去滿足,第一是與生命的創造精神深深連結,第二是瞭解並發揮你的天賦及才能,第三是意識到我們的生命具有影響力。成就感來自於滿足這三種渴望。

There are three hungers that people are trying to feed throughout their lives. The first is to connect deeply with the creative spirit of life. The second is to know and express your gifts and talents. The third is to know that our lives matter. Fulfillment comes from feeding these three hungers.

我們想要一個人民可以自由的選擇、犯錯、持有寬容及同情心的社會,這就是我們所謂的道德社會;不是一個國家要負所有責任,而沒有人須要為國家負責的社會。

We want a society where people are free to make choices, to make mistakes, to be generous and compassionate. This is what we mean by a moral society; not a society where the state is responsible for everything, and no one is responsible for the state.

缺少了不確定性,即便獲得最大的商業勝利都會是單調、平凡、極端的令人不滿。

Without the element of uncertainty, the bringing off of even the greatest business triumph would be dull, routine and eminently unsatisfying.
