Walt Whitman (詩人)

“There’s a man in the world who is never turned down, whatever he chances to stray; he gets the glad hand in the populous town, or out where the farmers makes hay; he’s greeted with pleasure on deserts of sand, and deep in the aisles of the woods; wherever he goes there’s a welcoming hand – he’s the man who delivers the goods.”

— Walt Whitman, Poet

「世界上有一種人,不管走到哪都不會被拒絕;他在城鎮、農夫幹活處受到熱烈的歡迎;他走在沙漠、森林裡會受到人們高興的招呼;不管他去哪,都有人歡迎他 – 他是提供助益的人。」– 華特‧惠特曼 (詩人)
