節錄

姊妹W在我去英國讀書前,曾送一相框,回來以後,一直放在大廳裡,幾年過去再重看,就突然很想跟大家分享一下(也因為生活不精彩,暫無有趣題材):
人們不講道理、思想謬誤、自我中心,
不管怎樣,總是愛他們;
如果你做善事,人們說你自私自利、別有用心,
不管怎樣,總是要做善事;
如果你成功以後,身邊儘是假的朋友和真的敵人,
不管怎樣,總是要成功;
你所做的善事明天就被遺忘,
不管怎樣,總是要做善事;
誠實與坦率使你易受攻擊,
不管怎樣,總是要誠實和坦率;
你耗費數年所建設的可能毀於一旦,
不管怎樣,總是要建設;
人們確實需要幫助,
然而如果你幫助他們,卻可能遭到攻擊,
不管怎樣,總是要幫助;
將你所擁有最好的東西獻給世界,
你可能會被踢掉牙齒,
不管怎樣,總是要將你所擁有最好的東西獻給世界。

    Isn\’t this written by Kent M. Keith in 1968, "The Paradoxical Commandments"?
    In Chinese, that\’s "矛盾戒律" by "肯特,齊思".
    What a coincidence I have also read this in today\’s paper Headline daily.
     
    People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.Love them anyway.
    If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.Do good anyway.
    If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.Succeed anyway.
    The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.Do good anyway.
    Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.Be honest and frank anyway.
    The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.Think big anyway.
    People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
    What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.Build anyway.
    People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.Help people anyway.
    Give the world the best you have and you\’ll get kicked in the teeth.Give the world the best you have anyway.
