小编摘要:朋友们,正确的原则犹如灯塔,他们不会移动。它们是自然法则。我们打破不了,只有学习它们、调整它们、利用它们,并感激它们,这样我们自己才能得以解放,得以发展。





Principles Are Lighthouses
It was a dark and stormy night.
The officer on the bridge came to the captain and said,
“Captain, Captain, there is a light in our sea lane and they won't move.”
“What do you mean they won't move?
Tell them to move.
Tell them starboard right now.”The signal was sent out,
“Starboard, starboard.” The signal comes back,
“Starboard yourself.”
“I can't believe this.
What's going on here?
Let them know who I am.” The signal sent out,
“This is the mighty Missouri,starboard.”
The signal comes back,
“This is the lighthouse.”
My friends, correct principles are lighthouses,
they do not move.
They are natural laws.
We cannot break them.
We can only break ourselves against them.
We might as well learn them,
accommodate them,
utilize them and be grateful for them.
Then it enlarges us and emancipates us and empowers us.
T.S. Eliot once said something I think is appropriate
as we come to the conclusion of our visit together.
He said, “We shall never cease from striving,
and the end of all of our striving will be to arrive where we began
and to know the place for the first time.”
