        (人生哲理篇 )

 

 


     Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me ... Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful... that's what matters to me.


 


    We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we've all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it."
 


    Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers.


 


     Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.
 

 


   Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
   
 


    No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.


 
 


    Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.


 


    I would trade all of my technology for an afternoon with Socrates.
 


    

 

 


       成为墓地里最富有的人对我来说并不重要,在晚上睡觉前能对自己说,“我们干了一些了不起的事”,这对我来说才是重要的。


       我们一生中没法做太多的事情,所以每一件都要做得尽善尽美,因为这就是我们的人生。人生是短暂的,然后你就会死掉,知道吗?我们既然全都选择了用一辈子来做这件事,那就要他妈的做得漂亮,做得值得。
 


      有时候,人生会把你打得头破血流,不要丧失信心。我坚信这些年来让我坚持不懈的唯一理由是我爱我所做的事情。你必须找到你的所爱,无论是工作还是恋人,都是如此。
 


       你的工作将占据你的人生的一大部分,获得真正满足的唯一方法是做你认为是第一流的工作,而做出第一流工作的唯一方法是热爱你所做的事情。如果你还没有找到它,那就继续寻找,不要停息。正如所有关乎心灵的事情一样,当你找到的那一刻你就会知道它是什么,而且,就像所有美妙的恋情一样,它会随着岁月的流逝变得愈来愈好。所以,不停地寻找吧,直到找到为止,不要停息。
 


       记得自己来日无多是我曾经用过的帮助我做出人生重大决定的最重要的工具。因为几乎所有的事情——所有外在的期望、所有骄傲、所有对困窘或失败的恐惧——在死亡面前全都消失了,只有真正重要的东西保留下来。牢记自己将会死去是我所知道的避免以为自己会失去什么东西的思想误区的最佳方法。你现在就已经是赤条条一无所有的,没有任何理由不听从内心的召唤。


   
      没有人想死。即使是那些想上天堂的人,也不愿意为了上天堂而死掉,然而死亡是我们共同的目的地,没有一个人逃脱得了,这是理当如此的,因为死亡很可能是生命最棒的发明,它促成生命的变化,清除掉衰老的,给新生代腾出空间,此时此刻你们是新生代,但是在并不遥远的将来,你们将会渐渐地变得衰老,然后被清除掉。抱歉说得这么戏剧化,但事实就是如此。
 
 


     你的时间是有限的,所以不要浪费时间活在别人的生活里。不要被教条束缚住——那等于是靠别人思考的结果过活。不要让他人纷纷攘攘的意见淹没了你内心的声音。最重要的,是要有勇气遵从你的心灵和直觉的指引,这两者在冥冥中已经知道你真正想要成为什么样的人,任何其他的一切都是次要的。
 


     我愿意用我的全部技术去换取和苏格拉底相处的一个下午。
