What have you missed?

這一生中,你錯過了什麼?
What have you missed?

太太在二十五歲時問丈夫,
丈夫沮喪的回答她:
我錯過一個新的工作機會。
A wife asks her husband when she was 25, and he said with a sigh, after a short pause, “I missed a job advancement opportunity”

三十五歲時,
丈夫生氣的告訴她:
我剛錯過了一班公車。
When she was 35, her husband told her “I just missed a bus”

四十五歲時,
丈夫傷心的說:
我錯過與親人見最後一面。
At 45, her husband heartbrokenly said “I missed the last chance of seeing my parents, and they just passed away”

五十五歲時,
丈夫失望的回答:
我錯過了退休的好時機。
When she was 55, her husband said “I missed my chance to retire”

六十五歲時,
丈夫匆匆的答說:
我錯過了看牙醫的時間。
At age 65, he said “I missed my appointment with my dentist”

一如往常的,
太太總是回以微笑,
而微笑中總帶著落寞。
and just as usual, the wife always responded her husband with a smile, even though it is with a hint of disappointment

七十五歲那年,
太太不再問先生了,
此時,先生正跪坐在病危的太太面前,
When the wife is 75, she doesn’t ask her husband anymore, since she is so sick in bed, with her husband by her side

想起太太每隔一段時間,
總要問他的問題,他反過來問太太,
而太太的微笑中帶著解脫回答:
這一生,我沒有錯過你!
This time, her husband  takes the turn to ask her “What have you missed?”  She said, as if it is a great relief “I haven’t missed my chance of being with you!”

此時,先生早已淚流滿面,
原以為兩人可以永遠在一起,
所以,終日忙著工作與繁瑣的事,
卻從不曾用心體貼朝夕相處的另一半,
Her husband is soaking in tears. He never thinks about having to part way with her, and so he always put his attention towards work and other matters in live, but never really pay attention to her.

先生緊抱著太太說:
這輩子,我錯過妳五十年來的深情……
“I finally know what I have missed: I have missed your love for the past fifty years…”

繁忙的都市裡,有著許多為工作打拚的人,
大家總習慣於把工作當成生活的重心,
There’s just too many of us who focus only at our work and daily business, the endless stream of tasks from our career or daily life is suffocating.

為了滿足社會的價值,
不惜出賣自己的時間與身體,
捨不得多花時間投資健康,
以至於錯過了陪同孩子成長的機會、
忽略了身旁關心自己的親友、輕忽了自己的身體。
To pursue the our society’s value towards materialistic enjoyment, we sacrifice our time, our body, our health.  We all become stingy on investment towards our health, or the quality time with kids, seeing them grow up.  We ignore those who really cares about us, and eventually we ignore our own self as well.

珍惜,果真要在錯過後才能感受?
Do we really only know to regret after we have lost something?

人世無常,趕緊把握當下,把心中的感激告訴愛你的人、
用行動關心你的家人,把每一天都當成人生的最後一段,
即使走了,也能讓自己及身旁的人了無遺憾。
Life is full of uncertainties.  We never know what happen next, and whether there will be a “next”.  Let’s all treasure what we have now.  Go tell how much you appreciate those who loves you.  Act out and voice out your care for your family and friends.

我想我或許也有錯過了些什麼
但是要珍惜已擁有的更重要
We all have surely missed something important already, which makes treasuring what we still have even more important.

Evil Money

PERSPECTIVES
PSYCHOLOGY: Money Is Material
Carole B. Burgoyne and Stephen E. G. Lea (17 November 2006)
Science 314 (5802), 1091. [DOI: 10.1126/science.1135429]
Money has been said to change people’s motivation (mainly for the better) and their behavior toward others (mainly for the worse). The results of nine experiments suggest that money brings about a self-sufficient orientation in which people prefer to be free of dependency and dependents. Reminders of money, relative to nonmoney reminders, led to reduced requests for help and reduced helpfulness toward others. Relative to participants primed with neutral concepts, participants primed with moneypreferred to play alone, work alone, and put more physical distance between themselves and a new acquaintance.
Full text…

We always said money is the root of all evil, and now it seems this age old saying has catch on some scientific support after all.~

Of note, one of the experiment shows that winning money from a game of monopoly will reduce the winner’s tendency to help others (in this case a person dropping a whole pile of document in front of the winner).  The other show that mere visual exposure to money (e.g. text relating to money, picture, symbol, etc.) can reduce our tolerance to annoyances.

==============

Wow….  now that money’s evilness is (somehow) scientifically supported, let see what we can get here:

money = root (evil)
girl = money x time
time = money
girl = square(money) = evil…

gosh :P

==============

I just notice that evil money and evil monkey (from family guy) sound kinda similar….

Why Do We Shout?

One day, a professor asked his students ‘Why do we SHOUT instead of speak when we are ANGRY?’

All the students thought for a while. One answered ‘Because we lost our cool. That’s why we SHOUT.’

The professor asked again, ‘But the person is just right next to you, why can’t we talk softly but have to SHOUT?’

Everyone gave their opinions but none was accepted by the professor.

Lastly explained by the professor ‘When we are ANGRY, our hearts drift apart. To mask the DISTANCE we felt, we instinctively SHOUT instead of speak so the other party can hear us..’

‘But as we SHOUT, we get ANGRIER. And we felt we drift apart further. So we SHOUT even louder…’

‘It is the opposite when we are in love. Not only we do not shout, we whisper into each other ears. Why?’

‘This is because our hearts are very close, almost never apart. As our love deepen, we reach a state of communication  where there is no need for words.’

‘We understand each other well enough just by exchanging look,’ concluded the professor.

‘Therefore, when we are arguing, DO NOT speak words that will make our hearts drift apart. WAIT a few days. When you feel your hearts are no longer far apart, pick up the conversation and continue from there.

==============================

Recently I tried using a service called something like omegle, which let’s u talk to strangers.  I’ve got a lot to rant about this thing, but I’ll spare the good part for later.  Related to this post is the use of all caps in all internet chats.

Sometimes people type in all capital letters for no reason.  On the receiving side, all caps FEELS LIKE YOU ARE YELLING…

exactly.  So, be considerate.

===============================

Have been lazy for some weeks. because of traveling and stuffs.  Will keep on going.  God bless.
