 Make Life Most Worth Living
时间:2014-8-22 16:46:39        作者:蒋雨蒙        来源:学习周报

  They are the principles on which my wife and I have tried to bring up our family. They are the principles in which my father believed — and by which he governed his life. They are the principles, many of them, which I learned at my mother’s knee.

  They point the way to usefulness and happiness in life, to courage and peace in death.

  Let me state them:

  I believe in the supreme worth of the individual and in his right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity, an obligation; every possession, a duty.

  I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.

  I believe that truth and justice are fundamental to an enduring social order.

  I believe in the sacredness of a promise, that a man’s word should be as good as his bond①, that character — not wealth or power or position — is of supreme worth.

  I believe that the rendering② of useful service is the common duty of mankind and that only in the purifying fire of sacrifice is the dross③ of selfishness consumed and the greatness of the human soul set free.

  I believe that love is the greatest thing in the world; that it alone can overcome hate; that right can and will triumph over might④.

  These are the principles upon which alone a new world recognizing the brotherhood of man and the fatherhood of God can be established.

  Notes:

  ① bond n. 盟约,承诺

  ② rendering n.提供(帮助); 给予(服务)

  ③ dross n. 糟粕

  ④ might n. 威力,权力
