      of revenge
      REVENGE is a kind of wild justice;which the more man‘s nature runs to,the more ought law to weed it out. For as for the first wrong,it doth but offend the law;but the revenge of that wrong,putteth the law out of office. Certainly,in taking revenge,a man is but even with his enemy;but in passing it over,he is superior;for it is a prince’s part to pardon.
      And Solomon,I am sure,saith,It is the glory of a man,to pass by an offence. That which is past is gone,and irrevocable;and wise men have enough to do,with things present and to come;therefore they do but trifle with themselves,that labor in past matters. There is no man doth a wrong,for the wrong‘s sake;but thereby to purchase himself profit,or pleasure,or honor,or the like. Therefore why should I be angry with a man,for loving himself better than me?And if any man should do wrong,merely out of ill-nature,why,yet it is but like the thorn or briar,which prick and scratch,because they can do no other. The most tolerable sort of revenge,is for those wrongs which there is no law to remedy;but then let a man take heed,the revenge be such as there is no law to punish;else a man’s enemy is still before hand,and it is two for one. Some,when they take revenge,are desirous,the party should know,whence it cometh. This is the more generous. For the delight seemeth to be,not so much in doing the hurt,as in making the party repent. But base and crafty cowards,are like the arrow that flieth in the dark. Cosmus,duke of Florence,had a desperate saying against perfidious or neglecting friends,as if those wrongs were unpardonable;You shall read(saith he)that we are commanded to forgive our enemies;but you never read,that we are commanded to forgive our friends. But yet the spirit of Job was in a better tune:Shall we(saith he)take good at God‘s hands,and not be content to take evil also?And so of friends in a proportion. This is certain,that a man that studieth revenge,keeps his own wounds green,which otherwise would heal,and do well. Public revenges are for the most part fortunate;as that for the death of Caesar;for the death of Pertinax;for the death of Henry the Third of France;and many more. But in private revenges,it is not so. Nay rather,vindictive persons live the life of witches;who,as they are mischievous,so end they infortunate.
      復仇乃一種原始的公道,人之天性越是愛討這種公道,法律就越是應該將其鏟除;因為首先犯罪者只是觸犯了法律,而對該罪犯以牙還牙則使法律失去了效用。無可否認,若一個人對其仇敵施加報復,那他與被報復者不過是半斤八兩;而若是他不念舊惡,寬大為懷,那他就比對手高出一等,因高抬貴手乃貴人之舉。
      筆者確信,所羅門曾言:“寬恕他人之過失乃寬恕者之榮耀?!边^去的已經過去,且一去不返,而聰明人總是努力著眼于現在和將來的事情,所以對過去耿耿于懷著無非是在捉弄自己罷了。世間并無為作惡而作惡之人,作惡者之所以作惡皆為要獲得名利享樂或諸如此類的東西。既然如此,我為何要因人愛己勝過愛我而對其發怒呢?而且即便有人純然是出于惡性而作惡,那也不過像荊棘藜枯一般,刺扎戳鉤皆因其沒別的本事。最可原諒的一類報復是針對那些沒有法律懲治的罪行而施行的報復,但此時報復者須當心,得讓自己的報復行為也因沒法懲治而逍遙法外,不然報復者的仇敵依然占便宜,因為受傷害的比例是二比一。有人復仇時想要仇敵知曉這復仇來自何方。這樣復仇更為雍容大度,因為更痛快的報仇似乎不在于使仇敵皮肉受到傷害,而是要讓其悔不當初;不過卑怯而狡猾的懦夫則往往想要暗中施放的冷箭。佛羅倫薩大公科西莫①曾用極其強烈的言辭譴責朋友的背信棄義或忘恩負義,他似乎認為這類惡行不可饒恕。他說,你可以在《圣經》里讀到基督要我們寬恕仇敵的教誨,但你絕不會讀到要我們寬恕朋友的訓喻。但迄今為止還是約伯的精神高一格調,他說:“我們怎能只喜歡上帝賜福而抱怨上帝降禍呢?”將此例推及朋友,亦有此問。毋庸置疑,念念不忘復仇者只會使自己的創傷新鮮如初,而那創傷本來是可以愈合的。報公仇多半會為復仇者帶來幸運,如為消撒大帝之死而復仇,為佩爾蒂納之死而復仇,以及為法王亨利三世之死而復仇等等。但報私仇卻不會有這般幸運;與此相反,欲報私仇者過的是巫師一般的生活,他們活著時于人有害,死去則可嘆可悲。

      How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere
      I never wanted to be anything but a broadcaster,a talker. And for 40 years,I‘ve been doing just that. To me,the ability to talk well is one of the great pleasures in life and can bring with it some of life’s greatest rewards
      I‘m not saying it’s always easy. The vast majority of people would rather jump out of an airplane without a parachute than sit next to someone they‘ve never met at a dinner party.
      But the more you work at it,the easier it will be. To get you started,here are my six basic ingredients for learning how to talk to anyone,anytime,anywhere.
      You Don‘t Have to Be Quotable. If you could have witnessed my first morning in broadcasting,you would have bet the ranch that I was the last guy who’d survive,much less succeed,as a professional talker.
      It happened at WAER,a small radio station in Miami Beach,on the morning of May 1,1957.1 had been hanging around there hoping to crash into my dream world of radio. The
      station‘s general manager liked my voice but didn’t have any openings.
      I lived near the station and went by every day,watching the disc jockeys,the newscasters,the sports announcers. After three weeks the morning deejay quit. The manager told me I
      had the job starting Monday morning.
      I didn‘t sleep that whole weekend. I kept rehearsing things to say. By Monday I was
      a basket case.
      The manager called me into his office to wish me luck. And then I was on the air.
      Picture me at 9 a.m. sitting in the studio with my new theme song,Les Elgart‘s“Swingin’Down the Lane,”cued up. I start the song. Then I fade the music down so T can talk. Only nothing comes out. My mouth feels like cotton.
      So I bring the music up and fade it again. Still no words coming out of my mouth. It happens a third time. The only thing my listeners are hearing is a record going up and down in volume.
      Finally,the exasperated manage kicks open the door to the control room and shouts,
      ‘This is a communications business!“Then he turns ant leaves,slamming the door behind
      him.
      In that instant,I leaned toward thc microphone and said:“Good morning This is my first day on the radio. I‘ve been practicing all weekend. But my mouth is dry. I’m nervous. The general manager just kicked open the door and said,‘This is a communication’business.‘”I wasn’t exactly quotable that morning,but I was able to get some thing out by telling my listeners about the predicament I was in,and that gave me the confidence to continue. The rest of the show——as well as my career——went fine.
      Attitude Counts. After that fiasco in Miami,I made a commitment to keep talking even when it might not be comfortable——in other words,to work at it. The right attitude——the will to talk——is
      crucial to becoming a better talker.
      I think one reason I‘ve had a certain amount of success in broadcasting is that the audience can see I love what I’m doing. You can‘t fake that. And if you try,you will fail.
      Tommy Lasorda,the former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers,once came on my radio show the night after his team suffered a crushing loss in the National League playoffs. From his enthusiasm you never would have guessed he was the losing manager.
      When I asked him how he could be so exuberant,he said,“The best day of my life is when I manage a winning game. The second-best day of my life is when I manage a losing game.”That enthusiasm and his willingness to share it have made him a successful manager and a very successful talker too.
      Remember to Take Turns. Careful listening makes you a better talker. Good follow-up questions are the mark of a good conversationalist. In fact,I have an important rule that I remind myself every morning:
      nothing I say this day will teach me anything;So if I‘m going to learn,I have to do it by listening.
      Broaden Your Horizons. The best conversationalists are able to talk about issues and experiences beyond their
      own daily lives. You can expand your world through travel,but you can also do it without leaving your own back yard.
      When I was a boy,my widowed mother got an elderly woman to care for us while Mom tried to scrape up money for food,clothing and to keep our little apartment. The helper‘s
      father had fought in the Civil War,and as a child she had actually seen Abraham Lincoln. I was able to talk to her,so in a way my childhood was a window on another era in history.
      The point is this:people with backgrounds different from your own can help broaden your conversational repertoire and your thinking.
      Keep It Light. One of my cardinal rules of conversation is never stay too serious too long. Similarly,a key quality I look for in a potential guest is a sense of humor,preferably self-deprecating. Frank Sinatra is one guest who‘s never been afraid to make fun of himself.
      During an interview with me,Sinatra recalled comedian Don Rickles coming over to his table at a Las Vegas restaurant to ask a favor. Rickles was dining with a friend.
      “Would you mind saying hi to her,Frank?”
      “Of course not,”the singer replied.“Bring her over”
      Then Rickles said that his friend would be even more impressed if Sinatra could come over to their table. So a short time later,Sinatra good-naturedly walked across the restaurant,slapped Rickles on the back and said how delighted he was to see him.
      Whereupon Rickles said,“Beat it,Frank. This is personal.”
      What‘s key to the story——and most appealing to the audience——is that Sinatra so obviously enjoys retelling this joke at his own expense.
      Be the Genuine You. Anybody I‘ve ever talked to for more than a few minutes knows at least two things about me:I’m from Brooklyn. New York,and I‘m Jewish. That’s because I‘m deeply proud of both.
      You should be as open and honest with your conversational partners as you‘d want them to be with you,willing to reveal what your background is and what your likes and dislikes
      are. That‘s part of the give-and-take of conversation,part of getting to know people.
      Talk-show hosts Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford come into our homes easily and naturally,and they‘re not afraid to reveal their tastes or tell stories on themselves. Without making themselves the focus of their talk,they are themselves. If they——or a guest——tell a sad or joyful story,they are not afraid to show their feelings.
      Mel Tillis,the successful country-and-western singer,is absolutely charming as an interview guest,even though he stutters. It doesn‘t show up when he’s singing,but it does when he‘s talking. Instead of letting it bother him,Mel is upfront about the problem,jokes about it,and is so completely at ease with himself that he puts you at ease too.
      As for myself,I learned something critical after surviving that case of“mike fright”on my first day of broadcasting:be honest,and you won‘t go wrong.
      WHETHER YOU‘RE TALKING to one person or a million,the rules are the same. It’s all about making a connection. Show empathy,enthusiasm and a willingness to listen,and you can‘t help becoming’a master of talk.

      Three Passions I have Lived For 吾之三愿
      Three passions,simple but overwhelmingly strong,have governed my life:the longing for love,the search for knowledge,and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions,like great winds,have blown me hither and thither,in a wayward course over a deep ocean of anguish,reaching to the very verge of despair. I have sought love,first,because it brings ecstasy—ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed all the rest of my life for a few hours for this joy. I have sought it,next,because it relieves loneliness—that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss. I have sought it,finally,because in the union of love I have seen,in a mystic miniature,the prefiguring vision of the heaven that saints and poets have imagined. This is what I sought,and though it might seem too good for human life,this is what—at last—I have found. With equal passion I have sought knowledge. I have wished to understand the hearts of men. I have wished to know why the stars shine…A little of this,but not much,I have achieved. Love and knowledge,so far as they were possible,led upward toward the heavens. But always pity brought me back to earth. Echoes of cries of pain reverberate in my heart. Children in famine,victims tortured by oppressors,helpless old people a hated burden to their sons,and the whole world of loneliness,poverty,and pain make a mockery of what human life should be. I long to alleviate the evil,but I cannot,and I too suffer. This has been my life. I have found it worth living,and would gladly live it again if the chance were offered me.
      吾之三愿
      貝特蘭·羅素
      吾生三愿,純樸卻激越:一曰渴望愛情,二曰求索知識,三曰悲憫吾類之無盡苦難。此三愿,如疾風,迫吾無助飄零于苦水深海之上,直達絕望之彼岸。
      吾求愛,蓋因其賜吾狂喜——狂喜之劇足令吾舍此生而享其片刻;吾求愛,亦因其可驅寂寞之感,吾人每生寂寞之情輒兢兢俯視天地之緣,而見絕望之無底深淵;吾求愛還因若得愛,即可窺視圣哲詩人所見之神秘天國。此吾生之所求,雖慮其之至美而恐終不為凡人所得,亦可謂吾之所得也。
      吾求知亦懷斯激情。吾愿聞人之所思,亦愿知星之何以閃光……吾僅得此而已,無他。
      愛與知并力,幾攜吾入天國之門,然終為悲憫之心拖拽未果。痛苦之吟??M繞吾心:受饑餓之嬰,遭壓迫之民,為兒女遺棄之無助老叟,加之天下之孤寂、貧窮、苦痛,具令吾類之生難以卒睹。吾愿窮畢生之力釋之,然終不能遂愿,因亦悲極。
      吾生若此而已,然吾頗感未枉此生;若得天允,當樂而重為之。
