I was set free, because my greatest fear had already been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea.

我得到了解脱,因为我已经意识到了我最大的恐慌,而我始终活着,我还有一个我爱的女儿,我有一台旧打字机和一个了不起的想法。

And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.

生活的低谷也因此成为了我重建自己生活的坚实基础。

You might never fail on the scale I did, but some failure in life is inevitable.

你也许不会失败到我这种程度,但是生活中的一些失败是难以避免的。

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all--in which case, you fail by default.

没有失败地活着是不可能的,除非你活得过于谨慎以至于你也压根就没活过,因为在这种情况下,你的失败就是不作为。

Failure gave me an inner security that I had never attained by passing examinations.

失败给了我一种内在的安全感,那是我从通过考试中从未得到过的。

Failure taught me things about myself that I could have learned no other way.

失败让我了解我自己,这也是我通过其他途径无法得到的。

I discovered that I had a strong will, and more discipline than I had suspected; I also found out that I had friends whose value was truly above the price of rubies.

我发现我有很强的意志力并且比我怀疑的要更为自律;我也发现了我拥有朋友,并且她们的价值真的要远远高于红宝石的价格。

The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive.

你因为经历挫折而获得的认知将使你显得更为的明智和坚强,在此以后,你有了独立生存的能力。

You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity.

你将永远不会真正地了解你自己或者是你的人际关系的坚固度,直到它们被逆境检测。

Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more to me than any qualification I ever earned.

这种认知是真正的礼物,虽然赢得痛苦,但是它对于我来说比获得任何资质都显得更有价值。
