芭芭拉·埃伦雷希(Barbara Ehrenreich)名言

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

不管怎样,爱国主义往往是无赖的庇护所。异见、叛乱和全面的地狱复活仍然是爱国者的真正职责。

The secret of the truly successful, I believe, is that they learned very early in life how not to be busy. They saw through that adage, repeated to me so often in childhood, that anything worth doing is worth doing well.

真正成功的秘诀,我相信,是他们很早就学会了如何不忙碌。他们看穿了那句在我小时候经常重复的格言:任何值得做的事都值得做好。

In 1993, 89 of the 'Fortune' top 100 companies were administering the Myers-Briggs test to their employees. The philosophy behind personality tests is that they don't want you to be in the wrong kind of job. The tests have been completely exposed as nonsense.

1993年,《财富》100强中有89家公司对员工进行了迈尔斯-布里格斯测试。个性测试背后的理念是,他们不希望你从事错误的工作。这些测试被完全暴露为无稽之谈。

I would never call myself a cancer survivor because I think it devalues those who do not survive. There's this whole mythology that people bravely battle their cancer and then they become survivors. Well, the ones who don't survive may be just as brave, you know, just as courageous, wonderful people.

我永远不会称自己为癌症幸存者,因为我认为这会贬低那些无法存活的人。有这样一个神话,人们勇敢地与癌症作斗争,然后成为幸存者。好吧,那些没能活下来的人可能同样勇敢,你知道,同样勇敢,优秀的人。
