Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money ; it lies in the joy of achievement , in the thrill of creative effort .(Franklin Roosevelt , American president ) 
幸福不在于拥有金钱,而在于获得成就时的喜悦以及产生创造力的激情.(美国总统 罗斯福. F.)

幸福

Many people think that when they become rich and successful,happiness will naturally follow.Let me tell you that nothing is further from the truth.The world is full of very rich peoplewho are as miserable as if they were living in hell.We have read stories about movie stars who committed suicide or died from drugs.Quite clearly, money is not the only answer to all problems.

Wealth obtained through dishonest means does not bring happiness.Lottery winnings do not bring happiness.Gamble winnings do not bring happiness.To my mind, the secret to happiness lies in your successful work,There is no use sayingin your contribution towards others’ happinessand in your wealth you have earned through your own honest effort.If you obtain wealth through luck or dishonest means,you will know that it is ill earned money.If you get your money by taking advantage of others or by hurting others,you will not be happy with it.You will think you are a base person.

Long-term happiness is based on honesty, productive work, contribution, and self-esteem.Happiness is not an end; it is a process.It is a continuous process of honest, productive workwhich makes a real contribution to othersand makes you feel you are a useful, worthy person.As Dr. Wayne wrote, “There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.”There is no use saying“Some day when I achieve these goals,when I get a car, build a house and own my own business,then I will be really happy.”Life just does not work that way.If you wait for certain things to happenand depend on external circumstances of life to make you happy,you will always feel unfulfilled.There will always be something missing.

中文意境

幸福

许多人认为当他们富有,取得成功时,幸福自然就会随之而来。我告诉你:事实并非如此。世界上有很多富人,但是他们却很痛苦,犹如生活在地狱中。我们都读过影星自杀或死于吸毒的故事。显而易见,钱不是解决所有问题的答案。通过不正当手段获得的财富并不能带来幸福。抽到奖券也不会带来幸福;赌博也不会带给你幸福。

在我看来,幸福的秘密在于要有成功的工作。通过带给别人幸福和诚实的努力而获得的幸福才是真正的幸福。如果你是通过运气或是不诚实的手段而获得钱财,你会知道那并不是辛苦挣来的钱;如果通过利用别人或是伤害别人而获得钱财,你不会因此高兴。你会认为自己是个卑鄙的人。长期的幸福是建立在诚实,有成果的工作,贡献和自尊的基石上的。

幸福并不是终点,而是种过程。那是一个持续地通过诚实,有成果的工作为他人奉献的过程,这样做也会让你感到自己是一个有用的且有价值的人。正如韦恩博士所说的那样:“没有那条路能通向幸福。幸福本身就是那条路。”“有天当我实现这些目标时,当我买一辆汽车,建一所房子,创立自己的生意时,那时我才是真正幸福的。”生活并不是那样进行的。如果你等待某些事情的发生或依靠生活的外部环境来让你自己感到幸福,你总也不会感到满足。总会有些事与你失之交臂。
