Answered by Arthur Ashe

Arthur Ashe 回答:

The legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease?"

著名的温网选手亚瑟·阿什在1983年的心脏手术中因血液感染患上艾滋病,此后深受折磨。他收到了来自世界各地的粉丝来信,其中一封提到:“上帝为什么一定要选你忍受这样的疾病?”

His reply is one of the most inspiring things I have come across:

他的回复是我至今见过的最鼓舞人心的话之一:

"The world over—50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD 'Why me?'. And today in pain I should not be asking GOD 'Why me?'"

“全球有五千万个孩子开始打网球,五百万人学会打网球,五十万人成为职业运动员,五万人进入巡回赛,五千人进入大满贯,五十人进入温布尔登,四个人挺进半决赛,只有两人进入决赛。当我手握奖杯的时候,我从未问过上帝:‘为什么是我?’那么今天,在痛苦之中,我也不该问上帝:‘为什么是我?’”

Certainly my favorite !

下面这段话必须是真爱!

"Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something.
Not even me. You got a dream, you gotta protect it.
When people can’t do something themselves,
they’re gonna tell you that you can’t do it.
You want something, go get it.
Period."

“不要让别人告诉你,你不能做什么。
即使是我也不行。你有一个梦想,你就必须保护它。
那些做不到的人总要告诉你,
你也不行。
只要有梦想,就要去追求。
以上。”

In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that...
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger—something better, pushing right back.
—Albert Camus

仇恨时,心怀大爱。
流泪时,眼溢微笑。
慌乱中,心自平静。
我发现,于一切之中……
即使是严冬之际,我的心底仍是一片战无不胜的夏季。
这使我很快乐。无论世界如何反对我,我的心中仍有强大、向上的力量,激励我向前。
——阿尔贝·加缪

"Win or lose is not important, how we play is what matters."

“成败并不重要,重要的是过程。”

Spanish runner Iván Fernández Anaya encourages Olympic bronze medallist Abel Mutai of Kenya across the finish line during a cross-country running event in Spain December, 2012. Mutai slowed as he neared the finish line, believing he’d won when he was still several meters from the tape. Realizing his competitor’s mistake, Anaya approached Mutai from behind and motioned him to the proper finishing line.

在2012年12月西班牙的越野赛中,西班牙跑步运动员Iván Fernández Anaya鼓励奥林匹克铜牌获得者——来自肯尼亚的Abel Mutai穿越终点线。Mutai把距离终点还有好几米的地方误认成了终点,以为自己已经赢了,于是放慢了速度。而Anaya意识到了竞争对手的错误,从后面接近Mutai,并且示意他正确的终点线。

"Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... When the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

“在非洲,每天清晨,羚羊醒来时都明白,它必须跑得比最快的狮子快,不然就会被猎杀;每天清晨,狮子也知道,它必须跑得比最慢的羚羊快,不然就会饿死。你是狮子还是羚羊并不重要,当太阳升起时,你最好开始奔跑。”

Quora精选:面对同龄的成功人士,如何放下内心的嫉妒?

千万别放在心上。你根本不知道他们的私人生活实际上是什么样的,或者他们是不是只是表面上光鲜。大众所信奉的成功标准(金钱、地位、美满的家庭),就像是一盒现成的便当,社会打开了它,然后强迫你吞下去。谁在乎呢!弄清楚对你自己来说什么叫成功,然后专注地去追求它。

Quora精选:怎么知道一个人爱不爱你

爱是一种只可意会不可言传的温柔触觉,它的双手伸入我们的血液、心脏、大脑,带动一切感官细胞的沸腾。Ta爱我吗?Ta不爱我吗?这些问题总是如鲠在喉,难以下咽又难以倾吐。问不出口,心里又没底,如何是好?索性闭上你的双眼,用心来体会爱吧。

Quora精选:孩子们说过的最聪明的话

问一个四五岁的小朋友:“你觉得这杯子是半满呢还是半空呢?”她回答:“这就要看你是要喝水还是倒水了。”是不是非常机智?所谓“童言无忌”,小朋友说话无多顾虑,大胆又可爱,便时常妙语连珠,让人哭笑不得。

Quora精选:你看过哪些很棒的广告?

你见过这么震撼的公益广告吗?瘦成素描画一般的厌食症患者,长期误食我们丢弃的垃圾而痛苦死去的鸟类,从车驾主人手机中喷薄而出的血液,满船被屠杀的大熊猫,骨瘦如柴惨受虐待的小动物……这样的广告之所以会让我们感到不适,也许正是因为它们足够真实。

Quora精选:读了很多书,也忘了很多,那么读书的意义何在?
