  马克吐温说

  Mark Twain这家伙以幽默著称,向来说话没个正经。这里葛竞选了他难得的几句严肃的话,以飨读者。

  The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.

  要领先的秘诀就是要先开始。开始做事的秘诀就是要先把复杂的排山倒海的事分做能做到的一件件小事,然后着手去做第一件。

  There are two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.

  世界上有两类人,第一类人作出了成就;第二类人号称自己作出了成就。第一类人不如第二类人那么多。

  Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

  二十年后,让你觉得失望不是你做过的事情,而是你没有做过的事情。那么,就解开帆索吧,从安全的港湾里面开出来吧,跟着帆上的信风,去探索吧,去梦想吧,去发现吧。

  I was seldom able to see an opportunity unitil it had ceased to be one.

  我总是等机会错过了才能发现我曾有过机会。

  Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen.

  如果我们能在80岁的时候出生,然后慢慢往18岁的时候过,那人生简直就幸福无限了。

  Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first.

  别到处说世界亏欠了你,世界什么都不亏欠你的,你还没出生他就在那儿了!
