                                                     If I Rest, I Rust

  By Orison Marden

  

  The significant inscription found on an old key—“If I rest, I rust”—would be an excellent motto for those who are afflicted with the slightest bit of idleness. Even the most industrious person might adopt it with advantage to serve as a reminder that, if one allows his faculties to rest, like the iron in the unused key, they will soon show signs of rust and, ultimately, cannot do the work required of them. 

  

  Industry keeps bright the key that opens the treasury of achievement. If Hugh Miller, after toiling all day in a quarry, had devoted his evenings to rest and recreation, he would never have become a famous geologist. The celebrated mathematician, Edmund Stone, would never have published a mathematical dictionary, never have found the key to science of mathematics, if he had given his spare moments to idleness. Had the little Scotch lad, Ferguson, allowed the busy brain to go to sleep while he tended sheep on the hillside, instead of calculating the position of the stars by a string of beads, he would never have become a famous astronomer.

  

  Labor vanquishes all—not inconstant, spasmodic, or ill-directed labor; but faithful, unremitting, daily effort toward a well-directed purpose. Just as truly as eternal vigilance is the price of liberty, so is eternal industry the price of noble and enduring success.

  

  如果我休息,我就會生鏽

  奧裏森•馬登

  

  在一把舊鑰匙上發現了一則意義深遠的銘文——如果我休息,我就會生鏽。對於那些為懶散而苦惱的人來說,這將是至理名言。甚至是最為勤勉的人也可以此為警示:如果一個人有才而不用,就像廢棄鑰匙上的鐵一樣,這些才能很快就會生鏽,並最終無法完成安排給自己的工作。

  

  勤奮使開啟成功寶庫的鑰匙保持光亮。休•米勒如果在采石場勞作一天後,晚上停下來休息消遣的話,他就不會成為名垂青史的地理學家。著名數學家愛德蒙•斯通如果閑暇時無所事事,就不會出版數學詞典,也不會發現開啟數學之門的鑰匙。如果蘇格蘭青年霍格森在山坡上放羊時讓自己那思維活躍的大腦處於休息狀態,而不是花費心思計算星星的位置,他就不會成為著名的天文學家。

  

  勞動改變一切。這裏所指的勞動不是斷斷續續的、變化無常的或方向偏差的勞動,而是忠誠的、不懈的、方向正確的日夜勞動。正如要想獲得自由就必須時刻警惕一般,要想真正取得永久性的成功,就必須堅持不懈地努力.
