大人與小孩心目中永遠的動畫大師華特迪士尼,除了是世界上最知名的製作人與動畫師,更是目前世界上獲得最多奧斯卡獎的紀錄保持人;只是或許你不知道,他在好萊塢的第一間「辦公室」竟是他伯父家的老舊倉庫,而他當時窮到只剩30美元,但他永不放棄任何一個為世人帶來歡笑的機會。而雖然華特迪士尼已逝世快50年,但他說過的錦言佳句,永遠值得我們學習!

 

 

“The difference in winning and losing is most often…NOT QUITTING.”

「決定贏與輸的關鍵往往在於你有沒有放棄。」

 

 

“Adults are only kids grown up, anyway.”

「不管怎麼樣,大人不過就是長大了的小孩。」

 

 

“Why worry?If you’ve done the very best you can,worry won’t make it any better.”

「為什麼要擔心?如果你用盡全力做到最好了,那麼擔心並不會讓你所操心的事情變得更好。」

 

 

“The way to get started is to quit talking and being doing.”

「想要讓事情有個起頭,只要停止說話,然後開始做事就好了。」

 

 

“Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children.”

「全世界最珍貴的資源存在於孩子的心智當中。」

 

 

“The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.”

「你越喜歡你自己,你就會和別人越來越不一樣——而那將會使你變得特別。」

 

 

“When you believe in a thing,believe in it all the way,implicitly and unquestionable.”

「如果你相信一件事,那麼就永遠相信它,永遠不要懷疑。」

 

 

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

「我們的夢想都能夠被實現,只要我們有勇氣去追求它。」

 

 

“Life is composed of lights and shadows,and we would be untruthful,insincere,and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows.”

「人生是由許許多多光鮮亮麗與陰暗面所組成的,而我們可能會因為想要去包裝、或是假裝黑暗的那面不存在,而變得虛偽、不誠懇。」

 

 

“What ever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it they will want to come back and see you do it again and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.”

「不管你做什麼,把它做好吧,好到人們會想要再看你做一次,甚至邀其他人來看你究竟做得多好。」

 

 

我們可以看得出來,華特迪士尼之所以如此成功、做出讓我們記得一輩子的好作品,不只是純粹因為運氣而已,他肯努力、願意愛自己所選,並永遠不怕追求夢想。或許下次當你遇到挫折時,想想這位曾窮到每天與成群老鼠合住同個倉庫的「大男孩」所說的話,也許便能豁然開朗!
