If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. It is not important that he should mature as soon as an apple-tree or an oak. Shall he turn his spring into summer?

为什么我们一定要如此急切地追求成功?如果一个人跟他同伴的步伐不一致,可能是因为他听到的是另一种节奏。让他按他所听到的节奏前进,不论其快慢远近。

美国散文家 亨利•戴维•梭罗 / Henry David Thoreau
