Any woman who understands the problems of running a home
will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls;
the most massive characters are seared with scars.
Why would you want to be with someone who doesn't love you?
No matter how beautiful the memory is, it just belongs to the past.
True love is not real unless it's returned.
The best way to say good bye is to leave with a smile.
You can only live brilliantly if you know how to love yourself.
Don't worry, you will get used to it and above all, you will learn to deal with it.
To keep someone around you is not love; love is to let the one you love go freely.
If you cry when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars.
If I can't let go of the past, tomorrow will never come.
Never say goodbye when you still want to try, never give up when you still feel you can take it,
never say you don't love that guy anymore when you can't let it go.
A person who truly loves you will never let you go, no matter how hard the situation is.
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
Don't go. I can't do this on my own.
Sometimes all you need is a hug from the right person, and all your stress will melt away.
Meeting you is the best thing that ever happened in my life.
No matter how long it takes, true love is always worth waiting for.
There is always someone looking at you differently.
I still remember your smile from the first day I met you.
The people you used to hate are trying to save us.
Age is not wealth, but talent is mountain.
We have not experienced war, but we have never been far away from disaster.
The virus doesn't just attack the poor,But the poor will be harder when facing the virus
Everyone is equal before the virus.病毒来袭,
Your immunity is the best talisman.
Ordinary kindness has always been great.
It's not much fun to be alone without freedom.
Every disaster is a patriotic education
Be a builder, not a loser.

The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both
黄色的树林里分出两条路 可惜我不能同时去涉足
And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could
我在那路口久久伫立 我向着一条路极目望去
To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair,
直到它消失在丛林深处 但我却选择了另外一条路它荒草萋萋,
And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
十分幽寂 显得更诱人,更美丽
Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,
虽然在这条小路上 很少留下旅人的足迹
And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black.
那天清晨落叶满地 两条路都未经脚印污染
Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
呵,留下一条路等改日再见 但我知道路径延绵无尽头 恐怕我难以再回返
I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh
也许多少年后在某个地方, 我将轻声叹息将往事回顾:
Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood,and I—
I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
而我选择了人迹更少的一条, 从此决定了我一生的道路。

As a youngster on a farm, I had to drive a team of horses hitched to a hay wagon with a ladder fixed to the front on which I stood. While perched on that ladder, I would dream of the day when I would be able to have more than one pair of good shoes and many fancy clothes. It seemed that only on that ladder I would dream of what seemed impossible.
Few farmers' daughters continued their education after junior middle school at that time. My dear mother insisted I should; my father reluctantly agreed. We lived twelve miles from the nearest high school. There was no bus transportation. I had to stay with a family in that village during the first two years, helping with chores after school. Transportation was available the last two years but there was a two-mile walk each way to the bus stop. Cold weather prohibited this walk so I had to stay with a family near the bus stop. I tried desperately to be and do the best I could. I maintained well above average scholastic grades, participated in athletic and social service activities, receiving one of the seven medals for excellence at graduation.
那时,农民的女儿们很少有念完初中后继续受教育的。我亲爱的母亲坚持认为我应该去上学,父亲不情愿地答应了。我们的住处距最近的一所高中有12 英里。因为不通车,我只好在上高中的前两年寄宿在那个镇子里的一户人家里,放学后帮忙干些家务活。最后两年通了车,但从家和学校去车站都有两英里的路程。严寒的天气里,这段路就行不通了,于是我只好寄住在车站附近的一户人家里。我拼命努力,争取做到最好。我一直保持着超出平均分很多的好成绩,参加体育锻炼和社会服务活动。毕业时,我成了当年的七位优秀毕业生之一,获得了一枚奖章。
There was no financial help available to attend college. So I decided to seek employment as a stenographer-typist5). I typed and sent more than sixty letters with my resume to business places in Buffalo, NY. Only one response was favorable. Following an interview, I was hired. But that was short-lived, as eight weeks later my father became seriously ill. I was needed to cope with the farm work. He passed away in October and for the next six months I had been doing the work of a farm hand.
由于没人能资助我上大学,所以我决定找一份速记打字员的工作。我打了60 多封信,连同我的简历一起寄到了纽约州布法罗的商业区。只有一个地方给出了肯定的答复。经过面试,我被录用了。但那却是份短暂的工作,因为八周后,我父亲得了重病,家里需要我回去干农活。父亲10 月去世了,接下来的六个月,我一直在做农场工人的活。
After that I was again successful in obtaining office employment. Subsequently I took the Federal Civil Service Examination. Eighteen months later I was on my way to a position in Washington, D.C. While being there, I took an evening course at a University. One year later I was transferred to the US Weather Bureau in upstate New York, becoming its first woman weather observer.
那之后,我又成功得到了一份文职工作。接着,我参加了联邦公务员考试。18 个月后,我前往华盛顿特区任职。在那里,我上了一所大学开办的夜校。一年之后,我被调遣到纽约州北部的美国气象局,成了那里第一位女气象观察员。
Learning that an acquaintance needed help in his campaign for election to Congress, I resigned from the federal job and went to work for him. Upon winning the election, he chose me as one of his Washington secretaries. I then resumed my evening studies, receiving Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Accountancy. I continued in secretarial and administrative work as an aide to Congressmen for a total of twenty-eight years. My next goal was to become a CPA.
在得知一位熟人竞选国会议员需要帮助后,我辞掉了联邦政府的职务去为他工作。他竞选获胜后,选我做他在华盛顿地区的一位秘书。之后,我又继续在夜校学习,取得了会计学士学位和硕士学位。整整28 年,我一直在为国会议员当助理,从事秘书和行政工作。我的下一个目标是成为一名注册会计师。
I believe that dreams can come true. Mine did! Of course, there were many ruts and detours along the way, but hard work and perseverance made it happen. Never say ''It can't''. If it can happen to a poor farm girl, it can happen to anyone.
