After all, the power of ideas to overcome the power of the sword 

                                                                                                               张金涛(译 )    徐希明(文)


       拿破仑曾说过:世上只有两种力量,一种是剑,另一种是思想,而思想最终总是战胜剑的力量!这句话是对拿破仑显赫一生的总结,也是他能横扫欧洲的原因。
  Napoleon once said: There are only two powers in the world, the sword and the thought, and in the end the former is always conquered by the latter. This not only is the summary of Napoleon's illustrious life, but also is the reason of his sweeping across the whole Europe.
  1933年,艾森豪威尔开始在陆军参谋长麦克阿瑟手下工作,后来随麦克阿瑟一起驻守菲律宾,很得麦克阿瑟的赏识。6年后他被调回美国。有人问麦克阿瑟:你好不容易培养、提拔的人才,为什么轻易放走?麦克阿瑟回答:他该离开了,因为他不是奴才,有自己的思想!19年后,艾森豪威尔成为美国第34任总统。
  In 1933, Eisenhower served as chief military aide to General MacArthur, Army Chief of Staff, until 1935, when he accompanied MacArthur to the Philippines. He was highly praised by MacArthur. Six years later, he returned to the U.S.and held a series of staff positions. When people asked MacArthur, “Why did you let such an excellent man leave?” MacArthur replied, “He should leave, because he is not a minion, he has his own thoughts.” Nineteen years later, Eisenhower became the 34th president of the United States.
  思想是开启世界大门的钥匙(克罗瑟斯)。有了思想,就会拥有你该拥有的一切。
  Thought is the key to the gate of the world. With thoughts, you will get whatever you want.
  
  刘永好四兄弟是中国著名的企业家,是四川人的骄傲和自豪。在80年代,他们大胆辞去令人羡慕的公职,回家养鹌鹑,卖饲料,历尽多次失败,最终创立了希望集团。他们成功,靠的是什么?靠的就是思想的力量。牛根生从伊利副总的位置被罢黜,但他又成功地创办了蒙牛,靠的是什么?是思想!
  Liu Yonghao and his three brothers are well-known entrepreneurs. They are the pride of the Sichuanese. In the 1980s, they resigned the enviable positions as the public servants and began to raise quails and sell fodder. After experiencing many failures, they finally set up the Hope Group. What led to their success? It’s the power of thought. Niu Gensheng was forced to resign as the vice president of the Yili Group. But shortly after, he successfully launched the Mengniu Group. His success also depended on his thought!
  
  马云、俞敏洪等在创业的路上拼搏十余载,靠的也是思想的力量。这些都是成功人士;还有许多有思想的人士,仍然奋斗在路上,支撑他们的也是思想。我相信不久他们也会像上述人士一样成功。
  Other successful people like Mayun, Michael Yu fought for success for more than ten years. Their persistence also originated from the power of thought. In addition, there are also a lot of people who are still striving on the way. They are also supported by their thoughts. I believe they will soon be as successful as the above-mentioned people.
  
  当你富有时,不能丢失思想;没有思想的统领,物质的财富很容易失去。当你贫穷时更不能丢失思想,思想是灯塔,思想是灵魂,思想就是力量(雨果),思想的充实可以弥补物质的匮乏,伟大的思想最终能变成巨大的财富(塞内加)。
  When you are rich, you shouldn’t desert thought. Without the guidance of thought, you will easily lose your material wealth. When you are poor, you also should not throw the thought away. Thought is the beacon; thought is the soul and thought is power! The enrichment of our mind can make up for the lack of the material wealth. Great minds can eventually be changed into the great fortune!
  
  你可以没有显赫的地位,可以没有万贯家私,但不能没有思想。只要拥有思想,人生才不会迷失方向!
  
  You can have no prominent status and great wealth, but you can’t have no thought. With thought, you will never lose your direction in your life.
  
  德国哲学家黑格尔曾说:一个民族,必须有关注星空、仰望星空的人,这个民族才有希望。同样对于一个人,有思想,生命才有意义,生活才有目标、才有希望!
  
  German philosopher Hegel once said: A nation is hopeless unless it has people who concern about and look up the stars in space. Likewise, only when a man has his own thoughts can his life be meaningful and hopeful.
  
  为什么有的人面对挫折一筹莫展,下岗就像天塌下来一样,无奈、彷徨;有的人面对下岗,微笑者走上创业之路。
  
  Why is it that some people become despairing in the face of setbacks while other people can face up to the life with smile and start their own business?
  
  新东方的俞敏洪曾说:有些人一生没有辉煌,并不是因为他们不能辉煌,而是因为他们的头脑中没有闪过辉煌的念头,或者不知道应该如何辉煌。
  
  Our president Michael Yu once said, “Some people weren’t brilliant not because they can’t be, but because they didn’t know how to be or they even never thought of it!
  
  相同起点、相同的条件,不同的人却走出了截然不同的人生轨迹。是什么原因造成了这么大的差异呢?其实,人与人之间的天分相差无几,最大的差别就在于对待事情的态度不同,归根到底是是否有思想。
  
  The same starting point, the same conditions, but different people have different courses of life. What caused such a big difference? In fact, their talents are almost the same. The biggest difference is their attitudes and ultimately is whether they have their own thoughts or not.
  
  思想是衡量人、判断人的一个重要标准。塞内加说过:我不凭眼力辨人,而凭思想,这样得出的判断才是正确的!思想,只有思想,才能辨别是非;思想,只有思想,才能调节人的行为和欲念(乔·摩尔)。
  Thought is an important criterion of judging a person. Seneca once said, “I judge a person not by my eyesight but by his thought. Only in this way can such a judgment be right. Thought, only thought can tell right from wrong; thought, only thought can regulate human’s behavior and desire.
  
  当然谁也不能强求你们超过孔子、孟子,超过苏格拉底、黑格尔;但你必须超越自己,不断地超越自己!
  
  Of course no one can force you to surpass Confucius, Mencius, Socrates and Hegel. But you must surpass yourself.
  
  衡量生命长度的是时间,衡量生命质量的是是否有思想。同样的生命,有思想的生命会被延长。
  
  The length of life is measured by time, but the quality of it is measured by thought. People have the same life, but only the life with thought can be extended.
  
  生命是短暂的,唯有思想才是永恒的,生命是脆弱的,拥有思想才会变得坚强。
  
  Life is short, but thought is eternal; life is fragile, but with thought, life can be stronger!
  
  有思想的人,勇锐超过怯弱,进取压倒苟安。年龄有加,并非衰老;思想丢失,方坠暮年。岁月只能使肌肤衰老,思想却可使青春永存,有思想的人永远年轻。
  
  People with thought are brave rather than cowardly, aggressive rather than submissive. They are aged but never old until losing thought. The years can only lead to skin aging, but thought can make the youth last long. People with thought can stay young for ever!
  
  有思想的人必然有理想,目标明确,前途一片光明。没有思想的人热忱抛却,前途一片黑暗,自暴自弃,过一天是一天。
  
  People with thought will definitely be well-targeted and have a bright future. People without thought have no enthusiasm and no future. They abandon themselves and live day after day.
  
  人类的全部历史都告诫有智慧的人,不管你现在的处境如何,一定要保持自己的思想。不要笃信时运,而应坚信思想(爱默生),只有高贵的思想,没有高贵的血统。
  
  The whole history of mankind tells people with wisdom, no matter what situation you are in now, be sure to maintain your own thought rather than believe in luck. You should firmly believe in thought. Only noble thought instead of noble descent does exist!
  
  笛卡儿说过:我思故我在。有思想,才会有梦想,才会有希望。
  
  Descartes said: I think therefore I am! Where there is thought, there is dream and hope.
  
  困难并不可怕;可怕的是在困难面前失去信心、失去自我、失去思想。
  Difficulty itself is not terrible. But it is terrible when you lose confidence, lose yourself and lose your thought.
  
  你计划5年后、10年后干什么了吗?你为之奋斗了吗?你制定切实可行的计划了吗?你认真执行了吗?
  What are you going to do in five or ten years? Have you ever fought for this? Have you worked out a feasible plan and determined to carry out it?
  
  请记住:无论何时都要拥有自己的思想,要做一个有思想的人;因为思想的力量终究要战胜剑的力量!
  Please remember: You should be always having your own thought, be a man with thought, because the power of thought will eventually defeat the power of the sword!
