Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.

有时,成为朋友意味着掌握计时的技巧. 有一段时间保持沉默. 放手一搏,让人们把自己投向自己的命运的时候. 还有时间准备收拾完一切.

You don't start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it's good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That's why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.

您并非一开始就写好东西. 您开始写废话,认为它是好东西,然后逐渐变得更好. 这就是为什么我说最有价值的特征之一就是持久性.

Not everyone has been a bully or the victim of bullies, but everyone has seen bullying, and seeing it, has responded to it by joining in or objecting, by laughing or keeping silent, by feeling disgusted or feeling interested.

并非每个人都是欺负者或欺凌者的受害者,但是每个人都看到并看到了欺凌,通过加入或反对,通过嘲笑或保持沉默,感到恶心或感兴趣来对此做出回应.

Beware, all too often we say what we hear others say. We think what we are told that we think. We see what we are permitted to see. Worse, we see what we are told that we see.

当心,我们经常说我们听到别人说的话. 我们认为我们被告知我们在想什么. 我们看到我们被允许看到的东西. 更糟糕的是,我们看到了被告知看到的信息.

Simple peck-order bullying is only the beginning of the kind of hierarchical behavior that can lead to racism, sexism, ethnocentrism, classism, and all the other 'isms' that cause so much suffering in the world.

简单的啄食性欺凌只是这种等级行为的开始,这种等级行为会导致种族主义,性别歧视,种族中心主义,阶级主义以及所有其他在世界上造成如此大痛苦的“主义”.
