Joseph Campbell (神話學者)

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. Fear of the unknown is our greatest fear… While caution is a useful instinct, we lose many opportunities and much of the adventure of life if we fail to support the curious explorer within us.”

— Joseph Campbell, Mythologist

「你害怕進入的洞穴藏有你追求的寶藏。對無知的恐懼是我們最大的恐懼… 雖然謹慎是個有用的本能,我們將失去很多機會及生命裡很多的冒險經驗,如果我們沒有去支持心中那個好奇的探險家。」– 約瑟夫・坎伯 (神話學者)

  • hold (v.) 是「存有,藏有」,如:a list of journals held in the library. (存放在圖書館裡的期刊列表)  while (conj.) 是「在… 的同時;儘管」,如:While I like the design of this chair, I do not like its color. (儘管我喜歡這個椅子的設計,我不喜歡它的顏色。)  caution (n.) 是「謹慎,小心」;cautious (adj.) 則是「小心的」。instinct (n.) 是「本能,天性」。fail to 是「沒做到…」,如:He failed to deliver his report on time. (他沒有按時提交他的報告。)
