小编摘要:凭借内心深处所产生的、奇异而不可测的强大力量,你会产生对"某些事物"的强烈欲望。在这种欲望的冲击下,你决不要承认"不可能"这类字眼,也决不要把失败当作事实来接受。



This message is going out to the world at the end of the longest, and perhaps, the most devastating depression America has ever known. It is reasonable to presume that the message may come to the attention of many who have been wounded by the depression, those who have lost their fortunes, others who have lost their positions, and great numbers who must reorganize their plans and stage a comeback. To all these I wish to convey the thought that all achievement, no matter what may be its nature, or its purpose, must begin with an intense, BURNING DESIRE for something definite. Through some strange and powerful principle of "mental chemistry" which she has never divulged, Nature wraps up in the impulse of STRONG DESIRE "that something" which recognizes no such word as impossible, and accepts no such reality as failure.



在关于舒曼·汉克夫人的一则新闻报道中,有一小段的叙述,对这位女士如何成为成就非凡的歌唱家,提供了一条线索。我现在把这一段引述下来,因为这一线索所包含的仅仅是一个欲望。
As this chapter was being completed, news came of the death of Mme. Schuman-Heink. One short paragraph in the news dispatch gives the clue to this unusual woman's stupendous success as a singer. I quote the paragraph, because the clue it contains is none other than DESIRE.
在她事业的初期,舒曼·汉克夫人去拜会维也纳宫廷歌剧团的乐队指挥,请他试听她的歌喉,但是却被拒绝了。乐队指挥对这位局促不安、衣着朴素的女孩瞅了一眼之后,不太客气地说:"凭你这张脸和全无性格的样子,你怎么能期望在歌剧中成功?我的好女孩,还是死了这个念头吧!回去买一架缝纫机,开始你的工作。你永远不可能成为一位歌唱家。"
Early in her career, Mme. Schuman-Heink visited the director of the Vienna Court Opera, to have him test her voice. But, he did not test it. After taking one look at the awkward and poorly dressed girl, he exclaimed, none too gently, "With such a face, and with no personality at all, how can you ever expect to succeed in opera? My good child, give up the idea. Buy a sewing machine, and go to work. YOU CAN NEVER BE A SINGER."
"永远"是一段极长的时间!这位维也纳宫廷歌剧团的指挥知道许多唱歌的技巧,但他不知道当欲望执迷不悟时的那股力量。如果他对这种力量稍有了解,便不会犯下不给天才一个机会而轻率加以斥责的错误。
Never is a long time! The director of the Vienna Court Opera knew much about the technique of singing. He knew little about the power of desire, when it assumes the proportion of an obsession. If he had known more of that power, he would not have made the mistake of condemning genius without giving it an opportunity.
几年前,我的一位同事病了。随着时间的延长,病势愈来愈严重,最后他被送到医院去动手术。医生告诉我,他活的机会极为渺茫了。但这是医生的意见,并不是我同事的意见。就在被推走时,他以微弱的声音说:"放心吧,我在这儿住几天就会出去的。"在旁边照顾他的护士以同情的眼光看着我,但是病人真的平安地度过了死亡线。这一切过后,他的医生说:"那是他自己求生的欲望救了他。如果不是拒绝了接受死亡之神的召唤,那么他是过不了这一关的。"
Several years ago, one of my business associates became ill. He became worse as time went on, and finally was taken to the hospital for an operation. Just before he was wheeled into the operating room, I took a look at him, and wondered how anyone as thin and emaciated as he, could possibly go through a major operation successfully. The doctor warned me that there was little if any chance of my ever seeing him alive again. But that was the DOCTOR'S OPINION. It was not the opinion of the patient. Just before he was wheeled away, he whispered feebly, "Do not be disturbed, Chief, I will be out of here in a few days." The attending nurse looked at me with pity. But the patient did come through safely. After it was all over, his physician said, "Nothing but his own desire to live saved him. He never would have pulled through if he had not refused to accept the possibility of death."
我深信以信心支持欲望的这种力量,因为我曾见过这种力量使出身微贱的人,爬到了财富的顶峰;我曾见过它使人起死回生;我曾见过它被人们当作几百次失败后东山再起的源泉;我曾见过它赐给我儿子以正常、愉快、成功的人生,虽然他来到世上时,造物者未曾给他听觉。
I believe in the power of DESIRE backed by FAITH, because I have seen this power lift men from lowly beginnings to places of power and wealth; I have seen it rob the grave of its victims; I have seen it serve as the medium by which men staged a comeback after having been defeated in a hundred different ways; I have seen it provide my own son with a normal, happy, successful life, despite Nature's having sent him into the world without ears. How can one harness and use the power of DESIRE?
凭借内心深处所产生的、奇异而不可测的强大力量,你会产生对"某些事物"的强烈欲望。在这种欲望的冲击下,你决不要承认"不可能"这类字眼,也决不要把失败当作事实来接受。除非我们承认它有限度,否则,意志的力量是无限的!贫穷与富有,都是思想的产物。向生命要求的愈多,生命带给你的也愈丰富!
