「哈佛圖書館名言・精選名言錄~43」

相當知名的「哈佛圖書館訓言」,據說原本刻在哈佛圖書館自習室的牆上,後來在網路上引發熱烈討論,

引用其中五條,附上日文翻譯,來學習一下實用英文和日文吧~

2. 今の涎は将来の涙となる。
(現在打瞌睡流口水,明天將會流眼淚。)

Today’s slaver will drain into tomorrow’s tear.

 

3. 今日歩くのを止めれば、明日からは走るしかない。
(今天停下腳步的話,明天就必須加倍速度前進。)

Stop walking today and you’ll have to run tomorrow.

 

4. 一番現実的な人は、自分の未来に投資する。
(投資自己未來的人,是忠於現實的人。)

A true realist is one who invests in future.

 

5.今居眠りすれば、あなたは夢をみる。今学習すれば、あなたは夢が叶う。
(此刻打盹,你將做夢;而此刻學習,你將圓夢。)

Sleep now and a dream will come out; Study now and a dream will come true.
