    It was a dark and stormy night. The officer on the bridge came to the captain and said, "Captain, Captain, there is a light in our sea lane and they won"t move."

  在一个漆黑的风雨交加的夜晚,在驾驶台上的大副走向船长说:“船长,船长,有一道灯光在我们的航道上不肯离开。”

    "What do you mean they won"t move? Tell them to move. Tell them starboard right now."

  “你说不肯离开是什么意思?让他们移开,告诉他们现在立即向右转舵。”

    The signal was sent out, "Starboard, starboard, "The signal comes back, " Starboard yourself. "

  信号发了出去,“右偏,右偏。”发回的信号说:“你自己右偏。”

    "I can’t believe this. What"s going on here? Let them know who I am." The signal sent out, “this is the mighty Missouri, starboard." The signal comes back, "This is the lighthouse."

  “真不敢相信,这到底是怎么了?让他们知道我们是谁。”信号发出去说:“这里是密苏里巨轮,右偏。”发回的信号说:“这里是灯塔。”

    My friends, correct principles are lighthouses, they do not move. They are nature laws. We can’t break them. We can only break ourselves against them. We might as well learn them, accommodate them, utilize them and be grateful for them. Then it enlarges us and emancipates us and empowers us.

  朋友们,正确的原则就像灯塔,它们不会移动,它们是自然法则。我们不能打破它们,只能打破自己。我们可以去学习它们,配合它们,利用它们并且感激它们。然后我们得以发展自我,解放自我,掌权自我。

    TS.Eliot once sad somedthing I think is appropriate as we come to the conclusion of our visit together. He said, “we are never cease from striving, and the end of all of our striving wi11 be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time." 

    我认为爱略特说过的一席话很适合作为结束语。他说,“我们永远不能停止奋斗,当我们奋斗到最后,我们会达到起初的出发点,并重新认识这个地方。”
