They say Make the best of a bad situation . But I believe the bad situation makes the best of you. Even the irritations of life can be useful. President Abraham Lincoln showed us how this is so.

他们说,做最坏的情况。但我相信逆境会让你做到最好。即使生命的刺激也可能是有用的。亚伯拉罕林肯总统就向我们展示了这一点。

One of his cabinet appointees, Edwin Stanton, frequently found flaws with the president and criticized him ---- sometimes in public. Lincoln seemed to show excessive patience with him. The president was asked why he kept such a man in a high level position.

他被任命为内阁,埃德温斯坦顿,经常发现总统的缺点并指责他--有时甚至在公共场合。林肯对他似乎一直都很忍让。总统被问到为什么要把这样一个人放在一个高水平的位置。

Lincoln characteristically responded with a story. He told about a time he was visiting with an old farmer. He noticed a big horsefly biting the flank of the farmer s horse. Lincoln said he reached over to brush the fly away. As he did so, the farmer stopped him and cautioned, Don t do that, friend. That horsefly is the only thing keeping this old horse moving.

林肯的用很特别的故事回答他。他说有一次他去拜访一个老农夫。他注意到一个大马蝇在咬农夫旁边的马。林肯说他伸手把它赶走。当他这样做的时候,农民拦住他,说,不这样做,朋友。那只马蝇是唯一能让这匹老马活动。

Even life s many irritations and problems have their place. They may cause us to change directions. Or prod us to greater achievement. Or keep us moving along when it s easier to go nowhere.

即使生活的许多烦恼和问题都有自己的用处。他们或许会让我们改变方向。或促使我们取得更大的成就。或者让我们一直往前,当去哪里都不容易的时候。

Are you simply making the best of a bad situation, or will it make the best of you?

你是在为最坏的情况做打算,还是会做最好的你?
