一、

?

失败的意义

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF FAILURE

?

罗伯特?H?舒勒

Robert H. Schuller?

?

失败并不代表你是个失败者,

它只表明你尚未成功。

Failure doesn t mean you are a failure,

It does mean you haven t succeeded yet.

?

失败并不代表你一无所获,

它只表明你吸取了一次教训。??
Failure doesn t mean you have accomplished nothing,?

It does mean you have learned something.

?

失败并不代表你很愚蠢,

它只表明你信心百倍。

Failure doesn t mean you have been a fool,?

It does mean you had a lot of faith.?

?

失败并不代表你无脸见人,?
它只表明你百折不回。

Failure doesn t mean you ve been disgraced,
It does mean you were willing to try.?

?

失败并不代表你工夫白费,?
它只表明你的做事方法尚待改进。

Failure doesn t mean you don t have it,?
It does mean you have to do something in a different way.?

?

失败并不代表你低人一等,
它只表明你并非完人。

Failure doesn t mean you are inferior,?
It does mean you are not perfect.?

?

失败并不代表你浪费生命,?
它只表明你有理由重新开始。

Failure doesn t mean you ve wasted your life,?
It does mean you have a reason to start afresh.?

?

失败并不代表你应该放弃,?
它只表明你要加倍努力。

Failure doesn t mean you should give up,?
It does mean you must try harder.?

?

失败并不代表成功永不属于你,?
它只表明你要付出更多的时间。

Failure doesn t mean you ll never make it,?
It does mean it will take a little longer.

?

失败并不代表上帝已经抛弃你,?
它只表明上帝还有更好的主意。??
Failure doesn t mean God has abandoned you,
It does mean God has a better idea.?
  ?

二、

?

走自己的路?

FOLLOW YOUR OWN COURSE?

?

尼尔?西蒙  

Neil Simon?
  ?
别听那些人的话,?
“这事不能那么做。”?
也许是不能那么做,可是也许你就会那么做。 ?
Don t listen to those who say,?
“It s not done that way.”?
Maybe it s not, but maybe you will.?

?

别听那些人的话,?
“你这个险冒得太大了。”

米开朗琪罗可能在西斯廷教堂的地板上作过画,?
到今天肯定已经被抹掉了。?

Don t listen to those who say,?
“You re taking too big a chance.”

Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine Floor,?

and it would surely be rubbed out by today.

?

最重要的是,?
当你心中恐惧的声音,?
抬起它丑陋的头说,?
“那边那些人都比你聪明,?
他们更有才华,?
他们更高大、皮肤更白、更漂亮、更幸运,?
并且认识各种各样的人…”?
你可千万别理会。?

Most importantly, don t listen?
When the little voice of fear inside of you
rear its ugly head and says,?
“They re all smarter than you out there.?
They re more talented,?
They re taller, blonder, prettier, luckier and have connections...”?
I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you,?

?

我坚信只要选择一条你感兴趣的路,?
不排除爱情、敏锐以及与别人的合作,?
而是坚定地认为,?
通过你自身的努力能够感动他人,?
不把成功或者失败作为你生活的标准,?
那么你就可能成为值得自己敬佩的人。

Not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others,?
But with the strength of conviction?
That you can move others by your own efforts,?
And do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live,?
The chances are you ll be a person worthy of your own respect.?

  
三、

?

?

时间不等人,?
你拥有的每一刻都要珍惜。

Time waits for no one.?
Treasure every moment you have.?
  ?
  ?

the darkness of the past?
with you into today.?

梦想

DREAMS?
  

兰斯顿?休斯

生活就象折断翅膀的小鸟,?
无法自由翱翔。?  ?
Hold fast to dreams?
For if dreams die?
Life is a broken winged bird?
That cannot fly.?

?

紧紧抓住梦想,?
因为一旦梦想离开,?
生活就会变成贫瘠荒芜的土地,?
只有冰雪覆盖。  ?
Hold fast to dreams?
For when dreams go?
Life is a barren field?
Frozen with snow.?
