Confidence is a feeling---an inner fire and an outer radiance, a basic satisfaction with what one is plus a reaching out to become more.

自信是一种感觉———一种内心的火热与外在的光辉结合而成,一种对自身感觉基本满意并且想要接触外界来丰富自己。

Confidence is not something a few people are born with and others are not, for it is an acquired characteristic.

自信并非是一部分人生来就有而其它人则没有的,它是后来培养的性格特征。

Most people have more to work with than they realize.One noted physicist calls this unused excellencies and finding and releasing this potential in ourselves is one of the major challenges of modern life.

大部分人有比他们意识到的还要有能力。一位著名的物理学家把这叫做未使用的才能,发现并释放自己的潜能是现代生活主要挑战之一。

The great danger is not that we shall overreach our capacities but that we shall undervalue and under-employ them,thus blighting our great possibilities.

巨大的危险不在于我们会夸大自己的能力而在于我们低估并且不能充分发挥能力而扼杀我们巨大的潜力。

The goal of life is not a problemless existence,which would be unbearably dull,but a way to handle problems creatively. That word"problem" may sound a little prickly,but it only means a question put forth for solution, and actually life consists of a series of problems-and-solutions,each different from the last.

生活的目标并非是不遭遇问题,那样将会让人无法忍受。生活的目标在于创造性地处理那些问题。“问题”这一词可能听起来就有点刺耳,但它仅仅意味着被提出以等待解决办法的难题。生活,实际上,是由一系列的问题和解答组成的,每一个问题都不一样。

Rules can often be a guide to successful living,but they are not a substitute for living.Rules never quite keep up with reality,because rules come from experience,not the other way around.

规则经常能够引导我们过上幸福的生活,然而它们却不能替代生活。规则永远无法和现实保持一致,因为规则来源于现实经验,而非经验来源于规则。

Life happens,and it is infinitely inventive.It will always outrun and outmaneuver any attempt to bottle it up in a cut-and-dried system,for life is perpetual becoming.

生活显示出它极大的创造力。它总能轻易掌控想要将它束缚在一成不变的体系中的各种努力,因为生活永远都处在变化之中。

When life turns your wisest plans or best rules upside down,throw out the plans and bend with the circumstance.You will find powers you did not suspect,and possibilities undreamed of.

当生活把你最高明的计划或最佳规则弄得一塌糊涂时,抛弃那些计划,屈服于生活境遇。你会发现你无可质疑的力量和意外的潜力。

Confidence is not always winning,not always victory.Indeed,it is that very quality in humanity which refuses to stay defeated.A kind of stubborn cheerfulness.

自信不总是会赢,并且不总是获得胜利。实际上,它是存在于人们心中不愿被打败的高傲品质。是一种固执的快活。

Remember there are two things you can do with mistakes:you can run away and you can grow.

要记得对待错误,你能做二件事:一是逃避错误,二是在错误中成长。
