Do Good Anyway

* People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

* If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

* If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

* If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

* What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

* If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

* The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

* Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

* In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

-- Mother Theresa

Cứ làm tốt luôn luôn

* Người chung quanh chúng ta thường làm những điều vô lý, vớ vẩn, và ích kỷ. Tha thứ luôn luôn.

* Nếu bạn tử tế, có thể bạn bị tố cáo là bạn ích kỷ và có mưu đồ xấu. Tử tế luôn luôn.

* Nếu bạn thành công, bạn sẽ được một ít bạn không trung thành, và người thù nguyên thủy. Thành công luôn luôn.

* Nếu bạn là ngay thật, có thể bạn bị họ lừa. Cứ ngay thật luôn luôn.

* Những cái bạn chế tạo ra tốn thật nhiều thời gian, người ta có thể phá hoại trong chốc lát. Cứ chế tạo luôn luôn.

* Nếu bạn tìm được niềm vui và điều yên tịnh, người chung quanh bạn sẽ ghen tị. Cứ giữ niềm vui đó luôn luôn.

* Những gì tốt bạn làm hôm nay có thể không ai nhớ ngày mai. Cứ làm tốt luôn luôn.

* Hãy cho thế giới điều tốt nhất bạn có và chảng bao giờ đủ. Cứ cho điều tốt nhất luôn luôn.

* Đến lúc cuối, bạn sẽ thấy chỉ giửa bạn với Chúa. Chẳng bao giờ bạn với những người kia luôn luôn.

-- Mẹ Teresa

Dictionary - Từ điển (cập nhật)

Chắc nhiều người biết một trang web tiện dụng cho dịch một ngôn ngữ, nhưng tôi quyết định cập nhật cái trang web này đặc biệt cho các trình duyệt web di động được cho người nào chóng dịch một vài từ nhanh hoặc từ tiếng Anh sang tiếng Việt hoặc tiếng Việt sang tiếng Anh bằng Google Translate. Xin vui lòng với.

Many folks probably have a handy page for translating some language, but I decided to update this web page specifically for mobile browsers to allow folks to quickly translate a few words from either English to Vietnamese or Vietnamese to English using Google Translate. Enjoy.

This one is one for Vietnamese:

Here is one for Spanish also:

I didn't even bother posting a picture taken with an iPhone ... it was just too sad.

X and such ...

So the other day, a gentleman that I respect sent several of us an email stating:
Ok, so remember now, next week we are going to do "X and such" ...
I thought about his email and replied to him asking, "Thank you so much for the timely reminder. And could you also explain for me, why it is that we are going to do 'X and such'?" Shortly there after, I received an emotional email in alternating Caps Lock, explaining:
Well! EVeRY year wE do "X and such"! And ... we have already anNOUNced it. We have announced bEFORe hand that we will do "X and such"!
So I thought this would make a great Monty Python skit, as follows:
John Cleese: Ok. Today we will commence with beating our faces against the wall with all our might. All ready now? And ... G! go? ..."


Idiot: Excuse me. Excuse me! But what is this about beating your heads against the wall with all your might? I mean, why should we all be doing this?

John Cleese (Incensed): W(H)ell! Every year ... Every year! We beat our faces against the wall with all our might. And ... And we've announced it already. We have announced that we will be beating our faces against the wall with all our might. We ALWAYS announce before hand that we are about to do this, so that there is no question about our intentions.


Now then! If there are no more questions about it ... let us commence immediately with the beating of our faces against these hallowed walls with all our might.
Several folks that I've related this story to have asked, "What is 'X and such'"? Or, "Who was this?"

Does it really matter what "X and such" is? or who it is that requires "X and such"? Isn't it reasonable sometimes to ask why?

What do you think?
