Don't ever forget what a friend once wrote Senator Paul Tsongas when the senator decided not to run for reelection because he'd been diagnosed with cancer: "No man ever said on his deathbed I wish I had spent more time in the office." Don't ever forget the words my father sent me on a postcard last year: "If you win the rat race, you're still a rat." Or what John Lennon wrote before he was gunned down in the driveway of the Dakota: "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans."
永远不要忘记参议员保罗·特松加斯 (Paul Tsongas) 因被诊断出患有癌症而决定不再竞选连任时，一位朋友曾写过的话：“没有人在临终前说过，我希望我能在办公室多呆些时间。 “永远不要忘记我父亲去年在明信片上寄给我的话：“如果你赢得了老鼠赛跑，你仍然是一只老鼠。”或者约翰列侬在达科他州的车道上被枪杀之前写的：“生活就是当你忙于制定其他计划时发生的事情。”
Look at the view. You'll never be disappointed.
