John Kennedy (美国第 35 任总统)


“I am reminded of the great French Marshal Lyautey, who once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardener objected that the tree was slow-growing and would not reach maturity for a hundred years. The Marshal replied, In that case, there is no time to lose, plant it this afternoon.”

— John F. Kennedy, 35th U.S. President

「我记得法国著名的元帅利奥泰,他曾要求他的园丁种一棵树,园丁表示反对,说那树长的很慢且要一百年才能长成,利奥泰回答,若是那样,我们不能浪费时间,今天下午就植树。」– 约翰‧甘迺迪 (美国第 35 任总统)

  • object (v.) 反对。maturity (n.) 成熟。
