他说,“我还认为肯定它肯定死了呢。冬天树叶都掉光了。天这样冷,小树枝一折就断,好像老树没了生命。但现在我看到主根还有生命。” 他看着我说,:“鲍勃,别忘了这个重要教训。千万别在冬天把一棵树砍倒。千万别在运气低谷时作出消机决定。千万别在情绪最糟时作出重要决定时。要等待。要有耐心。风暴会过去。春天一定会来。

quote from Quote Garden

Dead Tree
I remember one winter my dad needed firewood, and he found a dead tree and sawed it down. In the spring, to his dismay, new shoots sprouted around the trunk.
He said, "I thought sure it was dead. The leaves had all dropped in the wintertime. It was so cold that twigs snapped as if there were no life left in the old tree. But now I see that there was still life at the taproot." He look at me and said, "Bob, don't forget this important lesson. Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst mood. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
