Wherever you are, and whoever you may be, there is one thing in which you and I are just alike at this monment, and in all the moments of our existence. We are not at rest, we are on a journey. Our life is a movement, a tendency, a steady, ceaseless progress towards an unseen goal.


We are gaining something, or losing something, or losing something, everyday. Even when our position and our character seem to remain precisely the same, they are changing. For the mereadvance of time is a change. It is not the same thing to have a bare field in January and in July. The season makes the difference. The limitations that are childlike in the child are childish in the man.

每一天,我们都会赢得某些东西,或者会失去某些东西。 甚至当我们的位置和我们的性格看起来跟以前完全相似时,它们事实上仍然在变化着。因为仅仅是时间的前进就是一种变化。对于一块荒地来说,在1月和7月是不同的,季节会制造差异。能力上的缺陷对于孩子来说是一种可爱的品质,但对于大人来说就是一种幼稚的表现。

Everything that we do is a step in one direction or another. Even the failure to do something is in itself a deed. it sets us forward or backward. the action of the negative pole of a magnetic needle is just as real as the action of the positive pole. To decline is to accept--the other alternative.

我们做的每一件事都是朝着一个或另一个方向前进一步。 甚至 没有做任何事情 这件事本身也是一种行为,它让我们前进或后退,一根刺针阴极的作用和阳极的作用都是一样真实的,拒绝也是一种接受--这些都是二中择一的选择。

Are you nearer to your port today than you were yesterday? yes, you must be a little nearer to some port or other for since your ship was first launched upon the sea of life, you have never been still for a single monment, the sea is too deep, you could not find an anchorage if you would, there can be no pause until you come into port.
