George Matthew Adams (專欄作家)


“It’s what each of us sows, and how, that gives us character and prestige. Seeds of kindness, goodwill, and human understanding, planted in fertile soil, spring up into deathless friendships, big deeds of worth, and a memory that will not soon fade out. We are all sowers of seeds – and let us never forget it!”

— George Matthew Adams, Columnist

「我們播什麼種子,及如何播種,造就我們的性格及名譽。仁慈、善意及體諒他人的種子,播於肥沃的土壤,會出現不死的友誼、非常有價值的行為,及一個不會被快速遺忘的回憶。我們都是播種的人 – 讓我們絕不要忘記!」– 喬治‧馬修‧亞當斯 (專欄作家)
