歌德說要果斷及時

前兩天讀一本美國的實用書,赫然發現一段援引歌德的文字。文字大約說做事要果斷及時,不應猶豫拖延:

Lose this loitering – ’twill be the same story
To-morrow – and the next more dilatory;
Each indecision brings its own delays,
And days are lost lamenting o’er lost days.
Are you earnest? seize this very minute –
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated –
Begin it, and the work will be completed!

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
