二、FOLLOW YOUR OWN COURSE
Don t listen to those who say,
“It s not done that way.”
Maybe it s not, but maybe you will.
Don t listen to those who say,
“You re taking too big a chance.”
Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine Floor,
and it would surely be rubbed out by today.
Most importantly, don t listen
When the little voice of fear inside of you
rear its ugly head and says,
“They re all smarter than you out there.
They re more talented,
They re taller, blonder, prettier, luckier and have
I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests
Not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation
But with the strength of conviction
That you can move others by your own efforts,
And do not make success or failure the criteria by which you
The chances are you ll be a person worthy of your own
Faith is the “eternal elixir”
Which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of
Faith is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!
Faith is the basis of all “miracles”,
And all mysteries which cannot be analyzed by the rules of
Faith is the only known antidote for failure!
Faith is the element, the “chemical” which,
When mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with
Faith is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration
of thought, created by the finite mind of man, into the
Faith is the only agency through which
the cosmic force of Infinite
Intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.
Change is the only absolute

Nothing stays the same.
Tomorrow will come,
bringing with it
new beginnings and sometimes
You can hold on to the past
and get left in the dust;

五、RESULTS AND ROSES
Edgar Albert Guest
The man who wants a garden fair,
Or small or very big,
With flowers growing here and there,
Must bend his back and dig.
The things are mighty few on earth,
That wishes can attain,
Whatever we want of any worth,
We ve got to work to gain.
It matters not what goal you seek,
Its secret here reposes:
You ve got to dig from week to week,
To get results or roses.
Pain past is pleasure. 過去的痛苦即快樂。 All things are difficult before they are easy. 凡事必先難后易。 Nothing is impossible to a willing heart. 心之所愿，無事不成。 Where there is life, there is hope. 有生命必有希望。 I feel strongly that I can make it. 我堅信我一定能成功。 Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. 與其詛咒黑暗，不如燃起蠟燭。 The shortest answer is doing. 最簡短的回答就是行動。 Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful individuals above the crowd: a little bit more. 成功的秘訣就是四個簡單的字：多一點點。 （凡事比別人多一點點！多一點努力，多一點自律，多一點實踐，多一點瘋狂。多一點點就能創造奇跡！）
打擊我吧！ 傷害我吧！ 折磨我吧！ 侮辱我吧！ 冤枉我吧！ 迫害我吧！ Attack me! Hurt me! Torture me! Humiliate me! Mistreat me! Persecute me! 讓暴風雨都來吧！讓我付出代價！ 讓我心態歸零！ 你使我興奮！ 你使我斗志昂揚！ 你使我咬牙切齒！ Let storms rage against me! Let me pay the price! Let me hit rock bottom! You excite me! You fill me with the spirit to fight! You make me grind my teeth! 你使我百折不撓！ 你使我脫胎換骨！你使我變得更堅強！ 你使我成為真正的人！ 你是我最幸福的回憶！ 你是我終生感激的恩人！ 我不是人，我要重塑人的尊嚴！ You make me determined! You make my completely reshape myself! You make me stronger! You make me a real man! You are my most joyful memory! I owe you all my life! I'm not human. I want to rebuild my dignity and honor. I want to reshape my life.
Great oaks from little acorns grow.合抱之木始于毫末
Rome was not built in a day.偉業非一日之功
Every little makes.積少成多
Drops of water outwear the stone.滴水穿石
God helps those who help themselves.自助者天助
No pains，no gains.沒有付出就沒有收獲
In our routine life and work, we will meet with insurmountable
difficulties. Occasionally we do feel helpless and fall in desperate situation. In this case, to be or not to be depends on whether we have enough courage to struggle.在日常生活中，我們將遇到無法克服的困難。有時我們感到無助并陷入絕望的境地。在這種情況下，何去何從取決于我們是否擁有足夠的勇于拼搏的精神。

Never give up,

As they always do.
Just have patience,
Your dreams will come true.
So put on a smile,
You'll live through your pain.
Know it will pass,
And strength you will gain
永 不 放 棄 ，
永 不 心 灰 意 冷 。
永 存 信 念 ，
它 會 使 你 應 付 自 如 。
難 捱 的 時 光 終 將 過 去 ，
一 如 既 往 。
只 要 有 耐 心 ，
夢 想 就 會 成 真 。
露 出 微 笑 ，
你 會 走 出 痛 苦 。
相 信 苦 難 定 會 過 去 ，
你 將 重 獲 力 量 。
Suck out all the marrow of life!
I came to this world
because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep
and suck out all the marrow of life！ To put to rout all that was not life. And not, when I came to die,
discover that I had not lived.
Count Your Garden
Count your gardens
By the flowers??
Never by the leaves that fall
Count your days
By golden hours??
Don't remember clouds at all.
Count your nights by stars??
Count your years with smiles?? Not tears.
Count your blessings??
Not your troubles.
Count your age by friends??
