7. The quickest and simplest way to wreck any relationship is to listen to gossip. The worst way to spend your time is spreading more gossip.
破坏关系最快最简单的方式就是听信谣言。浪费时间最糟糕的方式就是散播这些谣言。
8. Trying to please other people is largely a futile activity. Everyone will be mad at you sometimes. Most of the people you deal with will dislike, belittle, or ignore what you say or do most of the time. Besides, you can never really know what others do want, so a good deal of whatever you do is that regard will go to waste. Be comforted. Those who love you will probably love you regardless, and they are the ones whose opinions are worth caring about. The rest aren’t worth five minutes of thought between them.
尝试取悦别人基本上是徒劳无益的。每个人都有对你动怒的时候。大多数与你打交道的人,很多时候都会不喜欢、轻视或者忽略你的所说所做。另外,你永远不会知道别人究竟需要什么,所以,你为此所做的一切努力都会付诸东流。放松点吧!爱你的人无论怎样都会爱着你,他们的想法才值得我们在乎。至于其他人的想法,甚至都不值得我们思考五分钟。
9. Every winner is destined to be a loser in due course. It’s great to be up on the winners’ podium. Just don’t imagine you can stay there forever.
没有永久的胜利者。踏上冠军领奖台是好事,但不要梦想着可以永远站在上面。
10. You can rarely please, or change an asshole. The best thing you can do is stay away from them. The more time you spend around one, the more likely you are to become one too.
你几乎不可能取悦或改造一个混蛋。做好的做法便是远离他们。和他们呆的时间越长,你越可能成为跟他们一样的人。
11. Everything takes twice as long as you plan for and produces results about half as good as you hoped. There’s no reason to be downhearted about this. Just allow for it and move on.
事倍功半也没什么好沮丧的,就让它这样,然后继续前行。
12. People are oddly consistent. Liars usually tell lies. Cheaters cheat whenever it suits them. A person who confides in you has usually confided in several others first——but not got the response they wanted. 
人是奇怪的偏执狂。说谎者总要说谎,行骗者总要行骗。一个人向你吐露心事的时候,通常已经向其他人倾诉过了,只是没有得到想要的回应。
13. Accept yourself. No matter how hard you try, you can’t avoid being yourself. Who else could you be? You can act and pretend, but the person acting and pretending is still you. And if you won’t accept yourself——who then has any obligation to accept you?
接纳你自己。无论你如何努力,你不能逃避成为自己。除了自己,你还能是谁呢?你可以扮演和伪装,但进行扮演和伪装的那个人还是你自己。如果你都无法接纳自己,谁又有义务接纳你呢?
14. When it comes to blatant lies, there are none more egregious than budget figures. Time spent over them is time wasted.
谈到公众谎言,没有比预算数字更让人震惊的了。把时间花在这上面就是浪费时间。
15. The loudest noise in the world is the sound of people’s complaint. Don’t add to it.
世界上最大的噪音就是人们的抱怨,不要再增加了。
