比爾蓋茲的 10 項生活定律


Life is not fair, get used to it.



The world won"t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.



You will not make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won"t be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both.

Dear Curious Mother,


Surprising as this may seem in the 21st century, your daughter's strategy is not unusual. Evidence on speed-dating gathered by the economists Michèle Belot and Marco Francesconi shows that women are attracted by rich men, while men focus more on a woman's physical appearance. Lena Edlund, another economist, has found that in the areas of her native Sweden where the wealthiest men live, women of prime marriageable age are over-represented.


儘管在二十一世紀這種情況可能會非常令人吃驚,但你女兒的策略並不罕見。經濟學家米謝勒貝洛(Michèle Belot)和馬爾科弗蘭切斯科尼(Marco Francesconi)收集的有關閃電約會的證據表明,女性受到有錢男性的吸引,而男性更關注女性的容貌。


經濟學家萊娜埃德隆德(Lena Edlund)發現,在其祖國瑞典最富有男士生活的地區,處於最佳適婚年齡的女性比例過高。

You don't expect your child to grow up to be a heroin addict.

From the moment of her birth, you have hopes and dreams about the future, but they never include heroin addiction. That couldn't happen

to your child, because addiction is the result of a bad environment,

bad parenting.


There is most definitely someone or something to blame.

Millions of Britain 's women buy under-size clothes as an incentive to help them lose weight, a survey has found.


More than a third of women deliberately buy clothes which are too small for them because they are determined to slim down enough to fit into them one day, it found.


The research found that on average these women confessed to buying three under-size items of clothing each.


This means about 24 million dresses, skirts, blouses and trousers hanging idly in the country's wardrobes --- as their owners battle to fit into them.

The research uncovered Scots as the biggest purchases women make, with one in six claiming to own ten or more items they have bought knowing they are too small.

I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you. 
No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won‘t make you cry. 


The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can‘t have them.

Beauty Is in the Eye of the Beholder(情人眼裡出西施)


For years men and women have been getting married. They say their wedding vows which bring them together as one. They promise to love and cherish each other until death do them part.


When a man and a woman get married, it is one of the biggest decisions they will make in life. A man may select a woman because he, in his own eyes, sees her as the just-right wife for him. Every man has his own definition of what the "just-right" wife is. For instance, the millionaire man and the poor man both may define their just-right wife according to her physical qualities.


A millionaire may describe his "just-right" wife as charming, beautiful, sexy, intelligent, and well developed. On the other hand, a poor man may define his "just-right" wife as pleasing, attractive, desirable, knowledgeable, and shapely. Both men describe their just-right wife by the same physical qualities but use different words. The millionaire's definition of the just-right wife is more elegant, whereas the poor man's definition is a more common, everyday description.

Her position before was sheltered from the light; now, I had a distinct view

of her whole figure and countenance. She was slender, and apparently scarcely

past girlhood: an admirable form, and the most exquisite little face that I have

ever had the pleasure of beholding; small features, very fair; flaxen ringlets, or

 rather golden, hanging loose on her delicate neck; and eyes, had they been

agreeable in expression, that would have been irresistible: fortunately for my

susceptible heart, the only sentiment they evinced hovered between scorn and

a kind of desperation, singularly unnatural to be detected there. The canisters
