Calvin Coolidge (美國第 30 任總統)

031711]

“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

— Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the U.S.

「世上沒有東西可以取代堅持。才華不能,沒有東西比有才華但沒成功的人更普遍。天才不能,未得回報的天才幾乎已成格言。教育不能,這世上充斥著有學問的遊民。單是堅持及決心已是萬能。『繼續下去』這個標語已解決並將永遠解決人類的問題。」– 卡爾文‧柯立芝 (美國第 30 任總統)

  • “take the place” 是「取代;替換」。”persistence” 是「堅持;持續」,為名詞;”persistent” 則為形容詞。”talent” 是「才華」。”unrewarded”「未受犒賞的」為形容詞,是動詞 (也可當名詞) “reward”「獎賞;獎勵」的衍生字。”derelict” 是「無業遊民」。”omnipotent” 是「全能的;萬能的」,為形容詞。片語 “press on” 是「(在有困難的情況下) 繼續下去」。
  • 卡爾文‧柯立芝 (1872-1933) 是律師出身,為美國第 30 任總統,他在任內掃除前任總統的政治醜聞陰霾,使民眾恢復對白宮的信心,故卸任時極受歡迎。
