The first step is as good as half over.
You never know your luck.
Sow nothing, reap nothing.
The wealth of the mind is the only wealth.
You can't judge a tree by its bark.
Clothes do not make the man.
To be both a speaker of words and a doer of deeds.
Variety is the spice of life.
Bad times make a good man.
There is no royal road to learning.
Doubt is the key to knowledge.
Sharp tools make good work.
Wasting time is robbing oneself.
Nurture passes nature.
There is no garden without its weeds.
A man is only as good as what he loves.
Wealth is the test of a man's character.
The best hearts are always the bravest.
Courtesy is the inseparable companion of virtue.
Plain living and high thinking.
I became a searcher,wanting to find out who I was and what made me unique. My view of myself was changing. I wanted a solid base to start from. I started to resist3 pressure to act in ways that I didn't like any more,and I was delighted by who I really was. I came to feel much more sure that no one can ever take my place. Each of us holds a unique place in the world. You are special,no matter what others say or what you may think. So forget about being replaced. You can't be. 我成了一个探寻者，想要知道自己到底是谁，又是什么让我变得独一无二。
所以，不要担心自己会被取代，因为你永远是惟一的。 Just as you need air to breathe, you need opportunity to succeed. It takes more than just breathing in the fresh air of opportunity, however. You must make use of that opportunity. That's not up to the opportunity. That's up to you. It doesn't matter what "floor" the opportunity is on. What matters is what you do with it. 正如你需要空气来呼吸，你也需要机遇来获得成功。
重要的是你怎样把握机遇。The first snow came. How beautiful it was, falling so silently, all day long, all night long, on the mountains, on the meadows, on the roofs of the living, on the graves1) of the dead! All white save the river, that marked2) its course by a winding black line across the landscape3), and the leafless trees, that against the leaden4) sky now revealed more fully the wonderful beauty and intricacy5) of their branches！ 第一场雪降临了。
真美啊！整日整夜，悄无声息地飘落，落在高山上，落在草地上，落在生者的房顶上，落在逝者的坟茔上！ 万物皆白，惟有河流蜿蜒成一条黑线穿过雪野，还有无叶的林木，衬映在铅灰色的天空下，此刻更显得枝桠交错，仪态万千。 What silence, too, came with the snow, and what seclusion6)! Every sound was muffled7); every noise changed to something soft and musical. No more trampling8) hoofs9), no more rattling10) wheels! Only the chiming11) of sleigh-bells12), beating as swift and merrily as the hearts of children. 初雪飘落时，是何等的宁谧，何等的幽静！万籁俱寂，所有的噪音都化做柔和的音乐。
再也听不见得得马蹄声，也听不见嘎嘎车轮声！ 只有雪橇的铃声如乐，似孩子们的心儿在欢快地跃动 In the entire world there's nobody like me. Since the beginning of time, there has never been another person like me. Nobody has my smile. Nobody has my eyes, my nose, my hair, my hands, or my voice. I'm special. 大千世界，芸芸众生，没人与我相同。自创世伊始，从未有过像我一样的人。
The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but one season in the tree's life. He told them that they cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are — and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life — can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up. If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall. Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest. 这位父亲说他们答得都对，因为他们都只看到了梨树生命中的一个季节。他告诉他们：不应仅凭一个季节来判断一棵树，一段时间来看一个人；最后，到所有的季节都已终结时，才能衡量一个人的本质——以及他生命中的快乐、喜悦和爱。
Ignore the“yes, buts”for the time being. All I want you to do right now is open your mind to the possibility that the world is made up of a countless array of experiences from the very worst to the very best. As someone once said,“A mind is like a parachute20）—it works best when open.”And here is my promise: If you open your mind, you will enjoy a more abundant and fulfilling21)life. 从现在开始忘掉“是的，但是”。现在你做的就是认识到这样一种可能性，即世界是由无数从最好到最坏的经历组成的。
We're always on the go10)trying to accomplish so much, aren's we? Getting groceries, cleaning the 。
Never frown,even when you are sad,because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
Don`t waste your time on a man/woman ,who isn`t willing to waste their time on you.
Just because someone doesn`t love you the way you want them to,doesn`t mean they don`t love you with all they have.
Don`t cry because it is over,smile because it happened.
And forever has no end.
Life is a pure flame,and we live by an invisible sun within us.
