I'm a great believer in geography being destiny.

我非常相信地理就是命运。

Rituals, anthropologists will tell us, are about transformation. The rituals we use for marriage, baptism or inaugurating a president are as elaborate as they are because we associate the ritual with a major life passage, the crossing of a critical threshold, or in other words, with transformation.

人类学家会告诉我们,仪式是关于转变的。我们在结婚、洗礼或总统就职典礼上所使用的仪式都是精心设计的,因为我们把这些仪式与一个重要的生命通道、跨越一个关键的门槛,或者换言之,与转变联系在一起。

Though I am fascinated by knowledge, I am even more fascinated by wisdom.

The incredible cinematography makes 'A Walk to Beautiful' almost like a poem; there is a tenderness on display that seems to emanate from the camera. There is also great sensitivity to the women whose stories are being told - never did I have a sense of the subjects being exploited.

难以置信的摄影技术让《美丽的漫步》几乎像一首诗;镜头里似乎流露出一种温柔。对于那些被讲述故事的女性,我也非常敏感——我从来没有感觉到她们被剥削。

My desire to be a physician had a lot to do with that sense of medicine as a ministry of healing, not just a science. And not even just a science and an art, but also a calling, also a ministry.

我想成为一名内科医生的愿望与作为治疗部的医学观念有很大关系,而不仅仅是一门科学。不仅仅是一门科学和一门艺术,更是一种召唤,一种事奉。

The bottom line: health care reform is about the patient, not about the physician.

一句话:医疗改革关乎病人,而不是医生。

I've never bought this idea of taking a therapeutic distance. If I see a student or house staff cry, I take great faith in that. That's a great person; they're going to be a great doctor.

我从来没有接受过这种治疗距离的想法。如果我看到一个学生或教职员工哭泣,我对此充满信心。那是一个伟大的人;他们会成为一个伟大的医生。

I was taking care of people my age who were dying. The constant feeling, hearing from them, was that life is transient and can end very quickly, so don't postpone your dreams.

我在照顾和我同龄的垂死的人。从他们那里听到的持续的感觉是,生命是短暂的,可以很快结束,所以不要推迟你的梦想。
