财富当然是最让人羡慕的事情,但是贫穷有它阳光的一面。逆境最甜美的用途之一就是头或手的充实的工作带来的真正的满足感。世界上一半的智慧、美丽、有用的东西归功于必需品带来的灵感。

—- 出自《小妇人 》

#英语##little women##每日一句英语#

Wealth is certainly a most desirable thing, but poverty has its sunny side, and one of the sweet uses of adversity, is the genuine satisfaction which comes from hearty work of head or hand; and to the inspiration of necessity we owe half the wise, beautiful, and useful blessings of the world.

—— from《Little Women》
