It was a dark and stormy night. The officer on the bridge came to the captain and said, "Captain, there is a light in our sea lane and they won't move."

那是个漆黑的狂风暴雨的夜晚,大副从驾驶室出来走向船长说:“船长,我们的海道上有灯光,而且他们不愿移开。”

"What do you mean they won't move? Tell them to move. Tell them starboard right now."

“他们不愿移开是什么意思?叫他们移开。告诉他们立即右偏。”

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

信号发了出去:“右偏,右偏。”发回来的信号说:“你自己右偏。”

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

“我就不信。这是怎么了?让他们知道我是谁。”信号发出去:“这里是密苏里巨轮,请右偏。”信号发了回来:“这里是灯塔。”

My friends, correct principles are lighthouses, and 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, emancipates us and empowers us.

朋友们,正确的原则犹如灯塔,它们不会移动。它们是自然法则,我们打破不了。我们要么让自己与它们相悖,要么去学习它们,调整它们,利用它们,并感激它们。然后我们自己得以发展,得以解放,并得到使用这些原则的能力。
