日前读完一本英文书,书名是212度,副标题是the extra degree。作者是s.l.parker,书本只有薄薄的76页。

作者强调的是在华氏211度(约摄氏99.444度)时,水就滚了,但是要到212度(约摄氏100度)时,水才会开,而滚开的水就会冒出蒸汽,而有了蒸汽就可以驱动一部火车。

作者强调只有一度之差,就决定成功和失败,而领先一度的所获得的成就和奖赏就有如天壤之别。
书中还引用一些格言,例如:

.Inches make the champion.

~Vince Lombardi, Hall of Fame football coach
.Many of life’s failures are men who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

~Thomas Edison, American inventor
.Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.

~George S. Patton, American soldier & general
.Triumph often is nearest when defeat seems inescapable.

~B.C Forbes, Founder & publisher of Forbes Magazine
.The drops of rain make a hole in the stone not by violence, but by oft falling.

~Lucretinus, Roman philosopher
.It’s the final steps of a journey that create an arrival.Never stop. One always stops as soon as something is about to happen.

~Peter Brook, British theatre & film director
.Some men give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal.

~Polybius, Greek statement & historian
.You give 100 percent in the first half of the game, and if that isn’t enough, in the second half you give what’s left.

~Yogi Berra, Hall of Fame baseball player and manager.
.You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.

~Margaret Thatcher, British Prime Minister

中文有“差之毫厘,失之千里”同样的意义,意思即要不断坚持、努力,不要因一时失败而气馁,成功往往一步之远。而这一步所造成的结果就会产生显着差别。@
