  • One of my co-workers, Betty, was I broke up with my boyfriend last month. We had gone out a year and I was y to settle down. But, I could tell that he still wanted to play the field bee getting married. I don't think Don ever cheated on me, but I finally realized that he wasn't the marrying type. My friend Sheila was thrilled to hear that we had split up. She never liked Don and she was anxious to set me up with some of her single friends. I told her that I didn't want to go on any blind dates . But, she kept telling me about this guy Alan. She thought he was my soul mate and she was sure that he would be my Mr. Right . According to Sheila, he was good looking, he had a good sense of humor, he was bright and witty, and was kind and considerate. In the end, I told Shiela to give him my number. He called and we agreed to meet coffee.I walked into the cafe and looked around. I saw a nice looking guy sitting by himself near the window.Lucy: Hi, are you Alan? Alan: Yeah. You must be Lucy.Lucy: Did you have trouble finding the cafeAlan: No, I've actually been here bee. I'm really glad you could make it. Sheila has been telling me all about you. Lucy: Well, Sheila likes to play matchmaker. But, it's nice to meet you, too. Alan: To tell the truth, I'm not big on blind dates.Lucy: Yeah, me neither. But, I'm glad I came.Alan: Yes, so am I.Script by Dr. Lucy Tse 5
  • The enjoyment of these things, like the enjoyment of the moon, the snow and the flowers, must take place in proper company, this I regard as the thing that the Chinese artists of life most frequently insist upon that certain kinds of flowers must be enjoyed with certain types of persons, certain kinds of scenery must be associated with certain kinds of ladies, that the sound of raindrops must be enjoyed, if it is to be enjoyed fully, when lying on a bamboo bed in a temple deep in the mountains on a summer day;that, in short, the mood is the thing, that there is a proper mood everything, and that wrong company may spoil the mood entirely. Hence the beginning of any artist of life is that he or anyone who wishes to learn to enjoy life must, as the absolutely necessary condition, find friends of the same type of temperament, and take as much trouble to gain and keep their friendship as wives take to keep their husbands, or as a good chess player takes a journey of a thousand miles to meet a fellow chess player.享受这三件东西,也如享受雪月花 草一般,须有适当的同伴中国的生活艺术家最注意此点,例如:看花须和某种人为伴,赏景须有某种女子为伴,听雨最好须在夏日山中寺院内躺在竹榻上总括起来说,赏玩一样东西时,最紧要的是心境我们对每一种事物,各有一种不同的心境不适当的同伴,常会败坏心境所以生活艺术家的出发点就是:他如更想要享受人生,则第一个必要条件即是和性情相投的人交朋友,须尽力维持这友谊,如妻子要维持其丈夫的爱 情一般,或如一个下祺名手宁愿跑一千里的长途去会见一个同志一般The atmosphere, theree, is the thing. One must begin with the proper conception of the scholar studio and the general environment in which life is going to be enjoyed. First of all, there are the friends with whom we are going to share this enjoyment. Different types of friends must be selected different types of enjoyment. It would be as great a mistake to go horseback riding with a studious and pensive friend, as it would be to go to a concert with a person who doesnt understand music.所以气氛是重要的东西我们必须先对文士的书室的布置,和它的一般的环境有了相当的认识,方能了解他怎样在享受生活第一,他们必须有共同享受这种生活的朋友,不同的享受须有不同的朋友和一个勤学而含愁思的朋友共去骑马,即属引非其类,正如和一个不懂音乐的人去欣赏一次音乐表演一般 3661

  • I went to Vancouver a meeting this week. I have always liked Vancouver, and on top of that , my cousin Dominick just moved there. I got in touch with him and he invited me over to see his new place. On the way over, though, I got a little lost. I knew I was in the right area, but I was turned around. He lived in an apartment over an old bakery and I couldn't find it. I stopped a man who was walking by to ask directions.Lucy: Excuse me, could you tell me how to get to the Cross Bakery building?Man: The Cross Bakery building? Oh sure. You're actually walking in the opposite direction.Lucy: Oh, you're kidding! I thought I was heading east.Man: No, east is the other direction . To get to the Bakery, you need to turn around and go three blocks to Broadway. When you get to the intersection of Broadway and Elm, you hang a left. Go straight down that street half a block and then you'll see the building on your left.Lucy: Okay, let me see if I've got that. I need to go down Elm until I hit Broadway, then I make a left and the building is on my left hand side. Is that right?Man: Yeah, you've got it . Do you want me to show you the way? Lucy: Thanks the offer, but I think I've got it. Hopefully, I won't get lost again on my way there!Script by Dr. Lucy Tse 5
