一帮事业有成的大学毕业生,一起去看望原来大学时的教授,聊着聊着就抱怨起了生活和工作中的压力。
A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.
老教授以咖啡款待来宾,老教授从厨房拿出一壶咖啡和一堆杯子,有瓷杯、塑料杯、水晶杯,有的看起来很普通、有的贵重、有的很精美。教授让他们自己斟咖啡。
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to the coffee.
当所有的学生到了一杯咖啡后,教授说到:不知你们注意到没有,所有看起来贵重的杯子加入咖啡后,和普通、便宜的杯子就没两样了。这时只是你自己想要最好,这就是问题和压力的源头。
When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.
杯子本身并没有提高对咖啡的质量。很多情形下显得很贵重,有些情况下也盖过了我们喝的内容。实际上我们要的是咖啡,不是杯子,但人们会有意识地想要最好的杯子,因此,注意力就在别人的杯子上了。
Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups... And then you began eyeing each other's cups.
生活就像一杯咖啡,工作、金钱、社会地位就像杯子,他们都是生活的工具,我们无法选择“杯子”的种类和改变生活的质量。有时我们过分专注在杯子上,因此,没能很好的享受生活。
Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee.
“最幸福的人不是每一件事都要求最好,而是努力做好每一件事”。
"The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything."
