Henceforth[从今以后], I will consider each day's effort as but one blow of my blade[刀片] against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes[重击] the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today.
I will be liken to the raindrop[雨滴] which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid[金字塔].I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.
