  The master of a single trade can support a family. The master of seven trades cannot support himself.

  专心致志,锲而不舍,埃及平原上终于建起了宏伟的金字塔。 精通一行的人可以养家糊口,样样精通的人却不能养活自己。

  Now I know that in order to grow and flourish I must spare no efforts in doing things and keep a little in advance of the times. Those who reach the top are the ones who are not content with doing only what are required of them. They do more. They go the extra mile. And another.

  现在我知道,为了辉煌的成就,我必须全力以赴,必须永远走在时间前面。那些顶 尖人物都不会只满足分内的工作,他们比常人做得更多,走得更远。

  I will spare no efforts in doing things.


  Now I know that I cannot pursue a worthy goal, steadily and persistently, with all the powers of my mind and yet fail. If I focus the rays of sun with a burning glass, even in the coldest days of winter, I can kindle a fire with ease.


  I will spare no efforts in doing things.


  The weakest living creature, by concentrating his powers on a single object, can accomplish good results while the strongest, by dispersing his effort over many chores, may fail to accomplish anything.


  Drops of water, by continually falling, hone their passage through the hardest of rocks but the hasty torrent rushes over it with hideous uproar and leaves no trace24 behind. I will leave my trace. The world will know I have been here.

  小小水滴,持之以恒,也能将最坚硬的岩石穿透;相反,湍流呼啸而过,却了无踪 迹。我将留下我的踪迹,让世人知道我曾来过。

  I will spare no efforts in doing things.



  There once was a master who went to India. In those times, we didn't have the communications or airplanes or many kinds of transportation that we do now. So the master went to India on foot. He had never been to India before; perhaps he came from Persia. And when he got there, he saw a lot of fruit. In India they have plenty of fruit to sell, but much of it is expensive because they can't grow much due to the water situation. So he saw one basket, a big basket of some very red, long fruit. And it was the cheapest in the shop, not expensive at all.


  So he went up and asked, "How much per kilo?" And the shopkeeper said, "Two rupees." Two rupees in India is nothing; it's like dirt. So he bought a whole kilogram of the fruit and started eating it. But after he ate some of it: Oh, my God! His eyes watered, his mouth watered and burned, his eyes were burning, his head was burning and his face became red. As he coughed and choked and gasped for breath, he jumped up and down, saying, "Ah! Ah! Ah!"

  他就走过去询问:“这个一公斤要多少钱?”小贩回答:“两卢比。”两卢比在印度根本不算什么,像尘土一样不值钱,于是他就整整买了一公斤,然后开始吃。 吃了几口之后,这位师父就眼泪、口水齐流,眼睛发红,嘴巴辣得像着火一样,整个头好像要烧起来,他又咳又呛,满脸通红地喘不过气来,在那里边跳边叫:“啊!啊!啊!”

  But he still continued to eat the fruit! Some people who were looking at him shook their heads and said, "You're crazy, man. Those are chilies! You can't eat so many; they're not good for you! People use them as a condiment, but only a little bit to put into food for taste. You can't just eat them by the handful like that; they're not fruit!" So the stupid master said, "No, I can't stop! I paid money for them, and now I'll eat them. It's my money!"


  And you think that master was stupid, right? Similarly, we sometimes do a lot of things like that. We invest money, time or effort in a relationship, business or job. And even though it's been a long time, bitter experience tells us it won't work, and we know there's no more hope that things will change in the future - this we definitely know by intuition - we still continue just because we've invested money, time, effort and love into it. If so, we're kaput in the brain. Just like the man who ate the chilies and suffered so much but couldn't stop because he didn't want to waste the money he'd paid.


  So even if you've lost something, let it go and move on. That's better than continuing to lose.
