答应自己

(美)克里斯顿.D.拉尔森 吕瑞洲译

答应自己——
将如此坚强,
任何东西也无法扰乱内心的静谧,
和见到的每一个人谈到的都是关于健康、幸福和舒畅;

让你所有的朋友都感到他们各有所长,
任何事物都能窥见其光明的一面,
使你的快乐信条处处灵验;
对别人的成功像对自己的成功,
报以同样的欢呼;
只想令人愉快的事情,
仅盼最让人欣然的结局;
忘却以往的过失,
义无返顾的争取更大的建树;
将如此忙于完善自己,
而无暇对他人吹毛求疵;
将过于豁达,不会忧郁;
过于高贵,不屑动气;
过于硬朗,不知畏惧;
过于快乐,不容心存芥蒂。

I Promised Myself

Today and everyday of my eternal life, I promise myself to be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet.
To make my friends feel that there is something beautiful in each one of them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.
To think only the best and expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
To forgive and forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievement of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature I meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of myself that I have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, too happy to permit the presence of trouble. And so it is!
