I would rather be a teacher than a statesman, For he deals with finished citizens, I deal with future citizens.     I would rather be a teacher than a potter, For he shapes vessels of clay,But I shape destinies. 

I would rather be a teacher than a great business executive, For he works with facts and figures and lifeless coins, But I work with minds that are open,With future that unfolds and principles that grow. 


I would rather be a teacher than an archaeologist, For he unearths buried treasure, But I unearth talent. 


 I would rather be a teacher than an explorer, For he explores uncharted seas, But I explore uncharted minds and discover treasure island and continents of untold possibilities.

 I would rather be a teacher than a scientist, For though he studies the wonders of rocks, and the beauty of the stars, and the miracles of planets and the glory of the skies, I deal with that which is still more miraculous in the throbbing human hearts, unfolding human life and the information of lifetime character.

The Mayonnaise Jar


The Mayonnaise Jar

When things in your life seem, Almost too much to handle, When 24 Hours in a day is not enough, Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class And had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, He picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar And proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students, If the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open Areas between the golf balls. He then asked The students again If the jar was full.. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand And poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded With an unanimous ‘yes.’ The professor then produced Two cups of coffee from under the table And poured the entire contents Into the jar, effectively Filling the Empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

 ’Now,’ said the professor, As the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that This jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things – God, family, children, health, Friends, and Favorite passions – Things that if everything else was lost And only they remained, Your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter Like your job, house, and car. The sand is everything else — The small stuff. ‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ He continued, ‘there is no room for The pebbles or the golf balls.

The same goes for life. If you spend all your time And energy on the small stuff, You will never have room for The things that are Important to you. So… Pay attention to the things That are critical to your happiness. Play With your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. There will always be time To clean the house and fix the disposal. ‘Take care of the golf balls first — The things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.’ One of the students raised her hand And inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. ‘I’m glad you asked’. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for A couple of cups of coffee with a friend.’ Please share this with other “Golf Balls” I just did……

「I love you, darling!」

真是不容易的情懷           一名署名約翰衛斯理的人寫了這樣一個故事。 0A  一對夫婦在婚後十一年生了一個男孩, 夫妻恩愛,男孩自然是二人的寶。   男孩兩歲的某一天, 丈夫在出門上班之際, 看到桌上有一藥瓶打開了, 不過因為趕時間, 他只揚聲妻子把藥瓶收好, 然後就關上門上班去。   妻子在廚房忙得團團轉, 就忘了丈夫的叮囑。   男孩拿藥瓶, 覺得好奇、又被藥水的顏色所吸引, 於是一飲而盡。   藥水成份厲害, 即使成人服用也只能用少量。   男孩OD(Overdose服藥過量), 被送到醫院後,返魂乏術。 妻子被事實嚇呆了,不知如何面對丈夫。   緊張的父親趕到醫院, 得知噩耗非常傷心,看兒子的屍體, 望了妻子一眼,然後說了四個字。    作者叫讀者猜, 這丈夫說了四個甚麼字?     


「I love you, darling!」


這反應是 Proactive 的 (即反過來控制局面,而不被局面控制)。   作者亦盛讚這丈夫是人類關係的天才, 因為兒子的死已成事實, 再吵再罵也不會改變事實, 只惹來更多的傷心, 而且不只自己失去兒子, 妻子也失去兒子。     這故事, 彰顯人類選擇的自我層次  ,   同一件不幸事你可以怨天尤人, 痛罵社會,甚至自責無窮, 但事情卻不因這些而改變, 這一切只改變了你和日後的生活, 負著疤痕的活下去。   反之, 放下怨恨和懼怕, 放下過去,勇敢的活下去, 事情的境況原來並不如想像中壞,


 Proactive Behavior,

也就是我們所說的由人轉境 ,

而不是被外界事物牽著走 。






 ‘ I love you, darling! ‘ 的時候, 心中感概萬千……     多麼簡單的一句話, 但要有多久的修練, 多大的包容,多深的人生智慧, 才能在那種時刻 說出如此令人動容的一句話。   每個人都有不想讓人所知的不幸事, 自己選擇了什麼方式去面對, 又怎麼去面B 0未來,以及週邊的人事物…     與你分享 也祝福順心喜樂!
