When you are old and gray, and look back on your life, you will want to be proud of what you have done. The source of that pride won’t be the things you have acquired or the recognition you have received. It will be the lives you have touched and the difference you have made. 当你白发苍苍、垂垂老矣、回首人生时,你需要为自己做过的事感到自豪。物质生活和满足的占有欲,都不会产生自豪。只有那些受你影响、被你改变过的人和事,才会让你产生自豪感
