布莱顿对南安普敦 www.dgskce.com.cn Just for today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said,that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes.

Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways. I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out: If anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two things I don't want to do—just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt: they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit,and try not to improve or regulate anybody but myself.

Just for today I will have a program, I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful,and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

參考譯文:

就為了今天

就為了今天,我將盡力只度過今天而不立刻去解決終身的問題。對一件令我沮喪而又必須堅持一輩子的事,我只能堅持十二個小時。

就為了今天,我會很快樂。亞伯拉罕-林肯說過,“大多數人都是決定想怎么高興就怎么高興?!閉庖丫蝗銜欽胬?。

就為了今天,我會做自我調整適應事物本來的面目,而不是想方設法使每一件事滿足自己的欲望。當機會來臨的時候我會抓住它。

就為了今天,我會盡力心強志堅。我會學習,學一些有用的東西。我不會做一個精神上的流浪漢。我會讀一些需要努力、思考和注意力集中的東西。

就為了今天,我會用三種方法來磨煉我的靈魂。我會做對某人有利的事但不能被發現,若有人發現了就不算數。我將會做至少兩件我不愿做的事情——只為了磨練。我不會讓任何人感到我的感情受到了傷害:它們可能受到了傷害,但今天我不想表現出來。

就為了今天,我會過得很愜意??雌鵠次掖锏攪俗羆炎刺?,穿著得體、講話謙虛、行為禮貌、一點不吹毛求疵,盡量改進和調節自己而不是別人。

就為了今天,我會制定一個計劃,我也許不會嚴格地遵守它,但我一定要有計劃。我會避免兩種錯誤:倉促行事和優柔寡斷。

就為了今天,我將會獨自靜靜地呆上半小時放松。在這半小時里,某個時刻,我會日后對我的生活有個更好的看法。

就為了今天,我將不再害怕。尤其我不會再害怕享受美麗的事物,并且相信我給予世界的,世界也會給予我。
