1、什么也比不上成功(你的成功或他的成功)能确定无疑地改变你对朋友的看法。

Nothing changes your opinion of a friend so surely as success - yours or his. Franklin P. Jones, Saturday Evening Post, November 29, 1953

2、成功通常降临到那些忙得没有时间寻找(成功)的人身上。

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it. Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

3、 只有两样东西是无穷尽的,一是宇宙,一是人类的愚蠢。对于前者,我不太肯定。

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.  Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

4、事前想着事情睡着了(好好想而推迟一天做决定)也胜过事后想起事情而睡不着。

It is better to sleep on things beforehand than lie awake about them afterward. Baltasar Gracian

5、谎言有三种:谎言,弥天谎言和统计数字

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.   Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881)  

6统计学家:这种人相信数字不会撒谎(躺下),但承认:即便分析(治疗)之后其中有些也还站不住

Statistician: A man who believes figures don't lie, but admits that under analysis some of them won't stand up either.     Evan Esar (1899 - 1995), Esar's Comic Dictionary

7统计学:独一无二的科学,它能够让不同的专家用同样的数字得出不同的结论。

Statistics: The only science that enables different experts using the same figures to draw different conclusions.    Evan Esar (1899 - 1995), Esar's Comic Dictionary

8、烟幕是统计学的一个主要起因。

Smoking is one of the leading causes of statistics. Fletcher Knebel

9、有人认为足球是件生死攸关的事情。我不喜欢这种态度。我可以对他们保证足球要比那重要得多。

Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.    Bill Shankly, In Sunday Times (UK) Oct. 4 1981

10、谁要是能一连看上三场足球,就该宣布他脑死亡了。

Anybody who watches three games of football in a row should be declared brain dead.   Erma Bombeck (1927 - 1996)

11、越研究宗教越让我确信,人类什么也没崇拜过,只崇拜自己。

The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshipped anything but himself.   Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821 - 1890)

12懂得把需要做的事情做好,更懂得不去做不需要做的事情,这便是人生的智慧。

Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is a nobler art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of nonessentials. Lin Yutang

14、文明是一种生活方式,是对所有人都同样尊重的一种态度。

Civilization is a method of living, an attitude of equal respect for all men.   Jane Addams (1860 - 1935), Speech, Honolulu (1933)
