We are all in the position of the farmer. If we plant a good seed, we reap a good harvest. If our seed
is poor and full of weeds, we reap a useless crop. If we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all. I
want the future to be better than the past. I do not want it contaminated by the mistakes and errors
with which history is filled. We should all be concerned about the future because that is where we
will spend the remainder of our lives.
Now I know that there are no times in life when opportunity, the chance to be and do gathers
so richly about my soul when it has to suffer cruel adversity. Then everything depends on whether
I raise my head or lower it in seeking help.
Whenever I am struck down, in the future, by any terrible defeat, I will inquire of myself,
after the first pain has passed, how I can turn that adversity into good. What a great opportunity
that moment may present——to take the bitter root I am holding and transform it into fragrant
garden of flowers.
4. 如果這是我的末日，那麼它就是不朽的紀念日，我把它當成最美好的日子。我要把每分每秒化為甘露，一口一口，細細品嘗，滿懷感激。我要每一分鐘都有價值。我要加倍努力，直到精疲力竭。即使這樣，我還要繼續努力。今天的每一分鐘都勝過昨天的每一小時，最後的也是最好的。假如今天是我生命中的最後一天。如果不是的話，我要跪倒在上蒼面前，深深致謝。If it is my last, it will be my greatest moment. This day I will make the best day of my life.
This day I will drink every minute to its full. I will savor its taste and give thanks. I will make the
every hour count and each minute I will trade only for something of value.
I will labor harder than ever before and push my muscles until they cry for relief, and then
I will continue. Each minute of today will be more fruitful than hours of yesterday. My last
must be my best.I will live this day as if it is my last. And if it is not, I shall fall to my knees
and give thanks to god.
Life is full of confusing and disordering particular time, a particular location, do the
arranged thing of ten million time in the brain. Step by step , the life is hard to avoid
delicacy and stiffness, no enthusiasm forever and no unexpected happening of surprising
and pleasing. So, only silently ask myself in mind：next happiness, when will come?
The Coffee Place
I used to believe courtesy was a thing of the past. Very seldom have I encountered a courteous human being in this modern era of the so called Generation X.
Recently, I had to change my thinking, when I came face to face with just such a human being. I had gone to a happening coffee place, with two of my grown up daughters. The place was crowded with the usual loud crowd and we had to climb a steep flight of stairs in order to find an empty table. After enjoying coffee and snacks, we were at the steep descent down the stairs, where the narrow space made climbing down only possible in a single file, with hardly any space for another person to either climb up or come down.
Just as I was in the middle of my descent, a gentleman entered the main entrance of the restaurant which was right in front of the staircase. I was sure I would be pushed roughly by this man who will want to go up in a hurry. I kept coming down as fast as I could, holding on to the bannister, in lieu of my advanced years. My agile daughters were already down, looking up at me worriedly, hoping I would reach them before the stranger started up the stairs, knowing I was a nervous sort.
Nearly reaching them, I noticed the man still standing near the door. I reached my daughters and passed the stranger at the entrance door which he kept holding open. I looked back thinking he was still at the door, deciding whether to go in or find another less crowded place. I saw him going up the stairs, two at a time. I told my daughters about it and all three of us felt bad that we did not even thank the courteous gentleman who was actually holding the door open for us ladies to pass through before going up.
We applauded his chivalry for both, waiting for us to come down before going up himself and also holding the main entrance door open for us to go out. Such well mannered people are hard to find these days, when shoving, jostling and pushing is very common in our advanced but aggressive society. Till date, I remember this gentleman and pray to God to make more human beings like him.
