墓碑刻文

David童鞋那看到篇很有感触的文章《威斯敏斯特教堂旁边的墓碑》

在威斯敏斯特教堂旁边,矗立着一块墓碑,上面刻着这样一段话:

“当我年轻的时候,我梦想改变这个世界;当我成熟以后,我发现我不能够改变这个世界,我将目光缩短了些,决定只改变我的国家;当我进入暮年以后,我发现我 不能够改变我们的国家,我的最后愿望仅仅是改变一下我的家庭,但是,这也不可能。当我现在躺在床上,行将就木时,我突然意识到:如果一开始我仅仅去改变我 自己,然后,我可能改变我的家庭;在家人的帮助和鼓励下,我可能为国家做一些事情;然后,谁知道呢?我甚至可能改变这个世界。”

经过搜索,发现其英文原文是:

When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world. As i grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change,so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country.

But it, too, seemed immovable.

As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.

And now as I lie on my deathbed, I suddenly realize: If I had only changed my self first, then by example I would have changed my family.

From their inspiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better my country and, who knows, I may have even changed the world.

子曰 缩小梦想

然后偶们就有可能有大梦想~~

说简单了其实也很简单,定个可行的目标按部就班的做。

说总是比做要容易,大道理都明白,能做到的人就不多了,

David的文章很棒~
改变我们能左右的先

这样的文字,很值得回味!

说的这么玄乎,其实就是 修身齐家治国平天下
只不过这位先生反着来做的,可惜他觉悟得太晚了。
