But learning from our mistakesand accepting our plain——old averageness——is an art. So next time you break a plate or lose your keys, why not take it in stride? Consider the possibility that there is a hidden pattern behind the mistakes in your life.
  1. The art of being neither rich nor famous
  In order to be perceived as special and different, celebrities today strive to shun the limelight and become average folks.(Admit it: Don"t you love knowing that Sharon Stone shops at the Gap?) But regardless of how much money they have in the bank, or how much of a buzz they create when they show up at a club or charity ball, famous folks will never be able to enjoy the life you and I cherish. Small, reassuring pleasures are off-limits to them. You never see them borrowing books from the library, lingering in a coffee shop or window shopping on Main Street.
  One of the saddest things about acquiring fame and fortune is that once you realize you have plenty, you may want plenty more. Often, life is no longer as good as it gets. You never say, "Enough already".
  The only difference between a wise man and a fool is that the wise man knows he is a fool. In the same way, the only difference between an extraor dinary life and an ordinary one is the extraordinary pleasures you find in ordinary things.
  2. Be foolish in public
  Honest and gullible, trusting yet reckless, playful but insecure: These are what it takes to be silly. It is usually the result of a combination of our sterling qualities and our quirky personality traits. We are truer to ourselves when we stop making sense. Unlike stand-up comics who set out to be funnyand get heckled if they are not silly people become lovable simply by embracing the role of the other guy, the character who bumps into walls and shows up at parties with socks that don"t match.
  So next time you are caught talking to yourself in an elevator, don"t apologize. The silent gratitude you generate when you reveal your most vulnerable side to others is well worth the temporary blush.
  Flaunting your flaws, not your cleverness, is what will make you popular with your friends.
  3. Find meaning in your mistakes
  In art and architecture, what appears to be a goof is often a deliberate signal meant to draw attention to a particular aspect of the work. In Islamic art, for instance, small flaws abound in what look like the most luxurious carpets, pottery and mosaics. Artists are urged to purposely make mistakes to remind admiring observers that God alone is perfection.
  In music, notes that deviate from an established pattern are often used to create emotional tension. In the "Funeral March" of his Third Symphony, Beethoven replaced sounds with silences to express the mounting sense of sorrow in the piece. In literature, James Joyce was the champion of the intentional error. For Joyce, mistakes were "portals of discovery." In Ulys in particular, typos, misspellings and absence of punctuation add to the insightfulness of his prose.

  The poor are very wonderful people. One evening we went out and we picked up four people from the street. And one of them was in a most terrible condition, and I told the sisters: You take care of the other three. I take care of this one who looked worse. So I did for her all that my love can do. I put her in bed, and there was such a beautiful smile on her face. She took hold of my hand as she said just the words "thank you" and she died. I could not help but examine my conscience1 before her and I asked what would I say if I was in her place. And my answer was very simple. I would have tried to draw a little attention to myself. I would have said I am hungry, that I am dying, I am cold, I am in pain, or something, but she gave me much more -- she gave me her grateful love. And she died with a smile on her face. As did that man whom we picked up from the drain2, half eaten with worms, and we brought him to the home. "I have lived like an animal in the street, but I am going to die like an angel, loved and cared for." And it was so wonderful to see the greatness of that man who could speak like that, who could die like that without blaming anybody, without cursing anybody, without comparing anything. Like an angel -- this is the greatness of our people. And that is why we believe what Jesus had said: I was hungry, I was naked, I was homeless, I was unwanted, unloved, uncared for, and you did it to me.
  I believe that we are not real social workers. We may be doing social work in the eyes of the people, but we are really contemplative3 in the heart of the world. For we are touching the body of Christ twenty-four hours... And I think that in our family we don"t need bombs and guns, to destroy, to bring peace, just get together, love one another, bring that peace, that joy, that strength of presence of each other in the home. And we will be able to overcome all the evil that is in the world.
  And with this prize that I have received as a Prize of Peace, I am going to try to make the home for many people who have no home. Because I believe that love begins at home, and if we can create a home for the poor I think that more and more love will spread. And we will be able through this understanding love to bring peace be the good news to the poor. The poor in our own family first, in our country and in the world. To be able to do this, our sisters, our lives have to be woven with prayer. They have to be woven with Christ to be able to understand, to be able to share. Because to be woven with Christ is to be able to understand, to be able to share. Because today there is so much suffering... When I pick up a person from the street, hungry, I give him a plate of rice, a piece of bread, I have satisfied. I have removed that hunger. But a person who is shut out, who feels unwanted, unloved, terrified, the person who has been thrown out from society --that poverty is so full of hurt and so unbearable... And so let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love, and once we begin to love each other naturally we want to do something.

我最敬佩的一个人,不是什么伟人,也不是耀眼的明星,更不是家财万贯的富豪,而是一个陌生是叔叔。

  一Anne Frank
  Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank was a German-born Jewish girl from the city of Frankfurt. She gained international fame posthumously following the publication of her diary which documents her experiences hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.
  Anne and her family moved to Amsterdam in 1933 after the Nazis gained power in Germany, and were trapped by the occupation of the Netherlands, which began in 1940. As persecutions against the Jewish population increased, the family went into hiding in July 1942 in hidden rooms in her father Otto Frank’s office building. After two years, the group was betrayed and transported to concentration camps. Seven months after her arrest, Anne Frank died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, within days of the death of her sister, Margot Frank. Her father Otto, the only survivor of the group, returned to Amsterdam after the war to find that her diary had been saved, and his efforts led to its publication in 1947. It was translated from its original Dutch and first published in English in 1952 as The Diary of a Young Girl. Anne Frank has been acknowledged for the quality of her writing, and has become one of the most renowned and discussed of Holocaust victims.
  二、Samantha Smith
  Image: 1985 USSR Stamp with “Samantha Smith” in Cyrillic.
  Samantha Reed Smith was an American schoolgirl from Manchester, Maine who became famous in the Cold War-era United States and Soviet Union. In November 1982, when Smith was 10 years old, she wrote to Soviet leader Yuri Andropov, seeking to understand why the relations between the Soviet Union and the United States were so tense. Her letter was published in the Soviet newspaper Pravda. Samantha was happy to discover that her letter had been published, however, she had not received a reply. She then sent a letter to the Soviet Union’s Ambassador to the United States asking if Mr. Andropov intended to respond. On April 26, 1983, she received a response from Andropov. Smith attracted extensive media attention in both countries as a “Goodwill Ambassador”, and became known as “America’s Youngest Ambassador” participating in peacemaking activities in Japan. She wrote a book and co-starred in a television series, before her death at the age of 13 in the Bar Harbor Airlines Flight 1808 plane crash.
  三、Hector Pieterson
  Image: Sam Nzima’s famous June 16, 1976 photograph of Mbuyisa Makhubo carrying Hector Pieterson, accompanied by Hector’s sister, Antoinette.
  Hector Pieterson (1964 – 16 June 1976) became the iconic image of the 1976 Soweto uprising in apartheid South Africa when a news photograph by Sam Nzima of the dying Hector being carried by a fellow student, was published around the world. He was killed at the age of 12 when the police opened fire on protesting students. For years, June 16 stood as a symbol of resistance to the brutality of the apartheid government. Today, it is known as National Youth Day — a day on which South Africans honour young people and bring attention to their needs.

一百多年过去了,被火烧过的赤黑的土地,被莽莽的绿草和星星点点的野花遮掩着。即使成了一个公园,你依然是一片废墟,依然在荒郊野外遥望着清华园。你将自己惨不忍睹的身躯展示给国人,你斑斑的血泪化作了漫山遍野的映山红,开遍了伤痕累累的家园。圆明园,你是一个情结,系着一个古老民族千年的荣辱兴衰。你流着血的灵魂在热泪和碧血中升华、凝聚,凝成一座铁灰色的史碑,顶天立地地挺立着,任凭伤口的鲜血浸染着每一寸山河。在沉思中静默,在静默中沉思。你飞溅的血花激起了多少流淌着中华血液的心跳。你无言的叹息是一块粗黑的礁石。历史的长河在你身边徘徊着、激荡着、怒吼着,掀起冲天巨浪,吞噬着、咀嚼着你深深的苦难和悲哀。历史的烟云飞散后,你依然沉寂着,仰望着苍天等待着你脚下的土地再一次腾飞。

  It might make a larger omelette but a bigger egg isn"t necessarily a better one — and it certainly doesn"t make the hen that laid it very happy.
  That is the view of the chairman of the British Free Range Producers" Association, who says that if you want to be kind to hens, you should eat medium, not large or very large, eggs.
  “It can be painful to the hen to lay a larger egg,” Tom Vesey, who keeps 16,000 hens on 45 acres at Dingestow, Monmouth, told The Times. “There is also the stress, which is a big problem as it takes more out of hens to lay large eggs. It would be kinder to eat smaller eggs. Whenever I go to the Continent people eat medium-sized eggs yet here the housewife seems to be wedded to large eggs.”
  He also suggests people would do better eating a breakfast of two medium-sized eggs rather than one large one. “I prefer medium eggs,” he said, “They taste better, are less watery and don"t run off the plate.”
  Mr Vesey, who says he is determined to change egg-shopping habits, insists that farmers only produce large eggs because they receive more for them from supermarkets. The average price for 12 free-range eggs paid to a farmer is 77p for medium, £1 for large and just over £1 for very large.
  Mr Vesey has been criticised by industry chiefs for raising the issue in The Grocer but animal welfare experts say his argument is valid. Phil Brooke, of Compassion in World Farming, said: “Selectively breeding hens for high productivity, whether larger eggs or larger numbers of eggs, can cause a range of problems such as osteoporosis, bone breakage and prolapse. We need to breed and feed hens so that they can produce eggs without risk to their health or welfare.”
  Christine Nicol, Professor of Animal Welfare at the University of Bristol, said: “There is no strong published evidence of pain in egg-laying hens but it"s not ueasonable to think there may be a mismatch in the size of birds and the eggs they produce. We do often spot bloodstains on large eggs. As a personal decision I would never buy jumbo eggs.”
  Prices for very large eggs have decreased slightly over the past year, something Mr Vesey believes may make farmers think again about their production. He would like to see higher prices paid for medium eggs to encourage production. There is little consumer demand for small eggs, which weigh less than 53g and are mostly used in processed food.
  He thinks by changing the protein element of poultry feed it is possible for farmers to slow down the process of egg production so that hens can lay smaller eggs. He also suggests that farmers will make more profit from producing medium eggs because there will be fewer breakages. The volume of egg shell is the same on a medium as on a large or very large egg. Thin shells mean more cracked eggs.
  Mark Williams, head of the British Egg Industry Council, said shoppers mostly opted for large eggs, thinking they offered better value for money. “But it is possible consumers could be switched off from buying large overnight,” he said.

  When World War II ended, there were ruins everywhere. American sociologist David Popenoe visited a German family living in the basement.
   After leaving there, one of the people going the same way asked Popenoe, "Do you think they can rebuild their home?"
   "Surely!" Popenoe answered verily.
   "Why did you answer so surely?"
   "What did you see they put on the table in the basement?"
   "A vase of flowers."
   "Right," Popenoe said, "any nation in such a plight that has not yet forgotten the love of beauty must be able to rebuild her homes on the ruins."
   This story tells us how admirable and inspiring the people in despair who could still pursue the flower of hope were!
  
  第二次世界大战结束,到处是一片废墟。美国社会学家戴维·波普诺去访问一户住在地下室里的德国居民。

  “一定能!”波普诺肯定地回答。
  “为什么回答得这么肯定呢?”
  “你看到他们在地下室的桌上放着什么吗?”
  “一瓶鲜花”
  “对,”波普诺说“任何一个民族,处在这样困苦的境地,还没有忘记爱美,那就一定能在废墟上重建家园”

  The British love to think of themselves as polite, and everyone knows how fond they are of their "pleases" and "thank you". Even the simplest business such as buying a train ticket requires1seven or eight of these. Another2of our good manners is the queue. New-comers to Britain could be forgiven for thinking that queuing rather than football was the3national sport. Finally, of course, Motorists generally stop at crossings. But does all this mean that the British should consider themselves more polite than their European neighbors? I think not.
  Take forms of address(称呼) for example. The average English person4 he happens to work in a hotel or department store -- would rather die than call a stranger "Sir" or "Madam". Yet in some European countries this is the most basic of common address. Our5 "you" for everyone may appear more democratic, but it means that we are forced to seek out complicated ways to express6. I am all for returning to the use of "thee" and "thou" (Thee and thou are old-fashioned poetic words for "you"): "you" would be7for strangers and professional relationships.
  And of course, the English find touching and other shows of friendship truly terrifying. Have you noticed how the British 8ever touch? Personally, I find the Latin habit of shaking hands or a friendly kiss quite charming. Try kissing the average English person, and they will either take two steps backwards in horror; or if their escape is 9you will find your lips touching the back of their head.

  It is very important to have healthy teeth. Good teeth help us to chew food. They also help us to look nice.
  How does a tooth go bad? The1begins in a little crack in the enamel (珐琅) covering of the tooth. This happens after germs and bits of food have2 there. Then the decay slowly spreads inside the tooth. In the end, poison goes into the blood, and we may feel quite ill.
  How can we keep our teeth3? First, we ought to visit our dentist twice a year. He can fill the small holes in our teeth before they destroy the teeth. He can4 our teeth to check that they are growing in the right way.5, many people wait until they have toothache before they see a dentist. Secondly, we should brush our teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride(氯化物) toothpaste at least6a day--once after breakfast and once before we go to bed. We can also use wooden toothpicks to7 between our teeth after a meal. Thirdly, we should eat food that is8to our teeth and our body: milk, cheese, fish, brown bread, potatoes, red rice, raw vegetables and fresh fruit. Chocolate, sweets, biscuits and cakes are bad, especially9we eat them between meals. They are harmful because they10our teeth and cause decay.

  As a little boy, there was nothing I liked better than Sunday aftemoons at my grandfather"s farm in western Pennsylvania. Surrounded by miles of winding stonewalls, the house and barn provided endless hours of fun for a city kid like me. I was used to parlors neat as a pin that seemed to whisper, "Not to be touched!"
  I can still remember one afternoon when I was eight years old. Since my first visit to the farm, I"d wanted more than anything to be allowed to climb the stonewalls surrounding the property. My parents would never approve. The walls were old; some stones were missing, others loose and crumbling. Still, my yearning to scramble across those walls grew so strong. One spring afternoon, I summoned all my courage and entered the living room, where the adults had gathered after dinner.
  "I, uh, I want to climb the stonewalls," I said hesitantly. Everyone looked up. "Can I climb the stonewalls?" Instantly a chorus went up from the women in the room. "Heavens, no!" they cried in dismay. "You"ll hurt yourself!" I wasn"t too disappointed; the response was just as I"d expected. But before I could leave the room, I was stopped by my grandfather" s booming voice. "Hold on just a minute," I heard him say, "Let the boy climb the stonewalls. He has to learn to do things for himself."
  "Scoot," he said to me with a wink, "and come and see me when you get back." For the next two and a half hours I climbed those old walls and had the time of my life. Later I met with my grandfather to tell him about my adventure. I"ll never forget what he said. "Fred," he said, grinning, "you made this day a special day just by being yourself. Always remember, there"s only one person in this whole world like you, and I like you exactly as you are."
  Many years have passed since then, and today I host the television program Mister Rogers" Neighborhood, seen by millions of children throughout America. There have been changes over the years, but one thing remains the same: my message to children at the end of almost every visit, "There"s only one person in this whole world like you, and people can like you exactly as you are."
  
  我小时候最喜欢在爷爷的农场里度过每一个星期天的下午。爷爷的农场在宾州西部。农场四周都围上了绵延几英里的石墙。房子和谷仓给我这个城市男孩带来了无穷的快乐时光。我习惯了城里非常整洁的客厅,似乎在低声说:“不要摸!”
  我仍能记得我8岁那年的一天下午的情景。因为我第一次去农场,所以我很想能让自己爬农场四周的那些石墙。父母绝不会同意。这些墙年深日久,有的石头不见了,有的石头松动倒塌。然而,我渴望爬这些墙的欲望非常强烈。一个春天的下午,我鼓足勇气,走进客厅,大人们午饭后都聚在这里。
  “我,呃,我想爬那些石墙,”我犹豫地说道。大家都抬起头“我能去爬那些石墙吗?”屋里的女人们马上齐声叫了起来“天哪,不能!”她们惊慌地叫道,“你会伤着自己的!”我并没有太失望,我早就预料会是这样的回答。但还没等我离开客厅,爷爷低沉的声音拦住了我“等一会儿,”我听到他说“让孩子爬那些石墙吧。他必须学会自己做事”
  “快走吧,”他对我眨眨眼说“你回来后找我”接下来的两个半小时,我爬起了这些古老的石墙,别提有多开心了。后来,我把自己的冒险经历告诉了爷爷。我永远也不会忘记他说过的话“弗雷德,”他咧嘴笑道“你做了一回自己,让这个日子不同凡响。永远记住,整个世界只有一个你,而且我喜欢真实的你”
  许多年过去了,现在我主持电视节目《罗杰斯先生的街坊四邻》,全美国几百万儿童收看。几年过后,节目已经发生了一些变化,但有一点没变:几乎每期节目后我都会传递给孩子们这样一个信息“这个世界上只有一个你,人们都喜欢真实的你”
