卡卡老师的精彩讲解



洛克非勒家族信条


       They are the principles onwhich my wife and I have tried to bring up our family .They are the principlesin which my father believed and by which he governed his life .They are theprinciples, many of them ,which I learned at my mother's knee.

They point the way to usefulness and happiness in life, to courage andpeace in death.

If they mean to you what they mean to me, they may perhaps be helpfulalso to our sons for their guidance and inspiration.

Let me state them:

I believe in the supreme worth of the individual and in his right tolife ,liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity,an obligation ;every possession, a duty.

I believe that the law was made for the man and not man for the law; thatgovernment is the servant of people and not their master.

I believe in the dignity of the labor, whether with head or hand; thatthe world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity tomake a living.

I believe that thrift is essential to well ordered living and thateconomy is a prime requisite of a sound financial structure, whether ingovernment, business or personal affairs.

 

这些信条是我太太和我努力用以持家育子的原则。它们是我父亲深信不疑并籍以安身立命的原则。其中有很多是我在母亲膝前学到的原则。

这些信条指出了一条活得快乐有用、死得勇敢安详的道路。

如果它们对你的意义正如对我的一样,它们或许也将有助于我们的子女从中获得引导和启发。

让我陈述如下:

我相信个人至高无上的价值及生存、自由与追求幸福的权利。

我相信每一项权利都伴随着一种职责;每一个机会都伴随着一份义务;每一次都拥有都伴随着一种责任。

我相信法律是为人制订,人却并非为法律而存在;政府是人民的仆人,而非人民的主人。

我相信劳动的尊严,不论是脑力或体力劳动;世界不应给予任何人生计,但它应给予每人一个谋生的机会。

我相信俭朴是井然有序的生活所必须;节约是健全的财务结构之必要,不论是政府、企业或个人事物皆是如此。
