热爱你的生活 Love Your Life

However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poor-house. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the alms-house as brightly as from the rich man's abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace. The town's poor seem to me often to live the most independent lives of any. Maybe they are simply great enough to receive without misgiving. Most think that they are above being supported by the town; but it often happens that they are not above supporting themselves by dishonest means, which should be more disreputable. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Turn the old, return to them. Things do not change; we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.

无论生活对你多严苛,直面它并好好过每一天。千万不要逃避,也不要咒骂它。它不像你那样坏。当你最富有时,其实最贫穷。吹毛求疵的人在天堂也能找到毛病。热爱你的生活吧,不论贫困。即使身在救济院,你也可以拥有愉快、激动、高兴的时光。落日反射在救济院窗口的光芒和富人屋顶的阳光一样闪耀;在春天来临之际,大家门前的雪花融化得一样早。我只看到,一个心态平和的人在哪生活都能像在宫殿里生活一样满足,怀着同样高兴的心情。镇里的穷人在我眼里过着最自由的生活。或许他们很伟大,所以受之无愧。大多数人认为他们的生活超脱,不受政府资助。但许多时候,他们往往通过不诚实的手段来养活自己,他们是毫不超脱的,甚至是声名狼藉的。视贫穷如园中之草,如圣人一样耕种它们吧。不要费力去获得新东西,不论是衣服还是朋友。去找老朋友或旧衣服吧,回归应有的生活。万物不变,变的是我们自己。衣服可以卖掉,但珍视你的思想吧!
