無我相

《 A Simple Path 》

ANYWAY

— wall of Shinshu Bhavan, the Children’s home in Calcutta

People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered,
LOVE THEM ANYWAY

If you do good, people will accuse you of
selfish, ulterior motives,
DO GOOD ANYWAY

If you are successful,
you win false friends and true enemies,
SUCCEED ANYWAY

The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow,
DO GOOD ANYWAY

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable,
BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY

What you spent years building may be
destroyed overnight,
BUILD ANYWAY

People really need help
but may attack you if you help them,
HELP PEOPLE ANYWAY

Give the world the best you have
And you’ll get kicked in the teeth,
GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU’VE GOT ANYWAY.

 

一條簡單的道路

人們不講道理、思想謬誤、自我中心,
不管怎樣,總是愛他們;
如果你做善事,人們說你自私自利、別有用心,
不管怎樣,總是要做善事;
如果你成功以後,身邊盡是假的朋友和真的敵人,
不管怎樣,總是要成功;
你所做的善事明天就被遺忘,
不管怎樣,總是要做善事;
誠實與坦率使你易受攻擊,
不管怎樣,總是要誠實與坦率;
你耗費數年所建設的可能毀於一旦,
不管怎樣,總是要建設;
人們確實需要幫助,然而如果你幫助他們,卻可能遭到攻擊,
不管怎樣,總是要幫助;
將你所擁有最好的東西獻給世界,你可能會被踢掉牙齒,
不管怎樣,總是要將你所擁有最好的東西獻給世界。
