有意義的人生──Live A Life That Matters

不管你是否有心理準備與否,人生總有盡頭。
當時刻到來,你不再有分分秒秒也沒有晨昏晝夜,
你所收集的事物,想珍藏或己遺忘的,終將傳讓他人。

無論擁有財富、名望及權力都將無用,
無論欠人或被欠都已不再重要,
妒忌、怨恨、挫折與猜忌終將消失。

同樣的,你擁有的希望、抱負、計畫及執行的細節都將終止,
曾經看來是重要的輸贏大事也都將隨之褪色消失,
從何處而來或在何處留下足跡,到頭來己不重要。

你是否美麗動人或明艷照人並不重要,
甚至性別及膚色也將沒有關係。

什麼事情是重要的?人的價值要如何衡量?
重要的不是購買什麼,而是建造什麼;
不是得到什麼,而是給了什麼。

重要的不是自己的成功,而是做了那些有意義的事。
重要的不是自己學到什麼,而是教導了別人什麼。
重要的是對每件事使盡全力、心懷悲憫、充滿勇氣、或奉獻犧牲,讓其他人因此更富裕、更有能力或受到鼔舞。

重要的不是能力,而是優良的品格。
重要的不是認識多少人,而是走後能讓多少人深深懷念。
重要的不是留下聲名,而是在愛您的人心中留有多少回憶。
重要的是能留在人們記憶中的時間有多長,是什麼樣的作為使人難以忘懷。.

快樂的生活並非來自偶然,
也非命中註定,而是自己一連串的選擇。

當你遇見美好的事物時所要做的第一件事,就是把它分享給你四周的人。
才能讓這些美好的事物確確實實的散播到世界各角落。


Live A Life That Matters

Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.

Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.

So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won’t matter where you came from,
or on what side of the tracks you lived, at the end.

It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built;
not what you got, but what you gave.

What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.
What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you.

What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what
Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.

It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
While you meet something beautiful,
the first thing you should do is to share it with your friends anywhere.

So that these beautiful things will be able to spread out literally around the world.
