On Achieving Success  关于获得成功

We cannot travel every path. Success must be won along one line. We must make our business the one life purpose to which every other must be subordinate.  我们不可能把每条路都走一遍。必须执着于一条道路才能获得成功。我们必须有一个终生追求的目标,其他的则从属于这个目标。

I hate a thing done by halves. If it be right, do it boldly. If it be wrong, leave it undone.我痛恨做事半途而废。如果这件事是对的,就大胆勇敢地去做;如果这件事不对,就不要去做。

The men of history were not perpetually looking into the mirror to make sure of their own size. Absorbed in their work they did it. They did it so well that the wondering world sees them to be great, and labeled them accordingly.历史长河中的伟人并不是靠终日瞻观镜中的自己来衡量自身的形象的。他们的形象来自对事业全身心的投入与追求。他们是如此的卓越超凡,于是芸芸众生觉得他们很伟大,并因此称他们为伟人。

To live with a high ideal is a successful life. It is not what one does, but what one tries to do, that makes a man strong.“Eternal vigilance,” it has been said,“is the price of liberty.” With equal truth it may be said,“Unceasing effort is the price of success.” If we do not work with our might, others will; and they will outstrip us in the race, and pluck the prize from our grasp. Success grows less and less dependent on luck and chance. Self-distrust is the cause of most of our failures. The great and indispensable help to success is character. 为崇高的理想而活着是一种成功的生活。使人变强大的,不是这个人做了什么,而是他努力尝试去做什么。有人说过,“恒久的警惕是自由的代价”,那同样也可以说,“不懈的努力是成功的代价。”倘若我们不尽全力工作,别人会尽全力,随后他们将在竞争中超越我们,从我们手中夺取胜利的果实。成功越来越不依赖于运气和巧合。丧失自信是我们失败的主要原因。性格是取得成功不可或缺的重要助力。

Character is a crystallized habit, the result of training and conviction. Every character is influenced by heredity, environment and education. But these apart, if every man were not to be a great extent the architect of his own character, he would be a fatalist, and irresponsible creature of circumstances. 性格是一种固化成形的习惯,是不断培养并坚信于此的结果。每个人的性格都会受到遗传因素、环境和教育的影响。但除此之外,如果人在很大程度上不能成为自己性格的构筑者,那么他就会沦为宿命论者,从而成为环境的失败造物。

Instead of saying that man is a creature of circumstance, it would be nearer the mark to say that man is the architect of circumstance. From the same materials one man builds palaces, another hovel. Bricks and mortar are mortar and bricks, until the architect can make them something else. The true way to gain much is never to desire to gain too much. Wise men don’t care for what they can’t have.与其说人是环境的造物,不如说人是环境的建筑师更贴切些。同样的材料,有人能用其建造出宫殿,而有人只能建成简陋的小屋。在建筑师将其变成他物之前,砖泥依然是砖泥。想得到的多就永远不要奢望太多。智者不会在意他们得不到的东西。

    零基础菜鸟开始学习词汇的进阶策略

    在自然语言交流中的双方,存在着这样一个有趣的平衡:说话的人希望使用最少的词汇来表达最多的含义,这样自己最省力。但对于听的人来说,这样做会很难了解对方的准确语义,所以希望说的人对语言中每个独特概念,都用不同的单词来表达,这样理解起来不会发生混淆。在两种反方向需求的共同作用下达到了平衡,结果就是少数量的常用词被使用得非常频繁,多数量的低频词被很少使用。使用频率从高到低的单词数量和它们在语言中的覆盖率可
