Motivational Monday

“People often complain of lack of time when lack of decision is the main problem.”

사람들은 종종 시간이 부족하다고 불평하지만 사실은 결단력 부족이 문제의 주요 원인일 때가 많다.

실수해도 | Even if you make mistakes…

Making mistakes is something everyone does. Learning from them is not.

실수를 하는 건 모두에게 해당되는 사항이지만 실수로부터 배우는 것은 그렇지가 않다.

오늘은 첫 번째 날이다. 이제 학기가 정말 시작됐다. 앞으로 실수 할건지 내가 잘 아는데 괜찮다. 실수해도 괜찮다고. 그럼, 화이팅 하자! 화이팅!

강하라. Be Strong.

“Be strong, because the beginnings to great things are always the hardest.”

“강하라. 모든 위대한 것들의 시작은 항상 가장 힘드니까.”

Nelson Mandela Quote

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

어떤 일이든 항상 실제로 이루어지기 전까지는 불가능해 보인다.

– Nelson Mandela


Trying to keep this in mind as I look ahead at my goals for the next ten minutes, half hour, month, and decade…여러분도 화이팅!

A Quote A Day in English & Korean

안녕하세요!  Wonder why I use that so often? I want to get really, really fast at typing it ^_^ Anyways, I just wanted to mention something Twitter-related. I follow an account that posts a quote every single day – and the quote is given in both English and Korean. You can follow here. It’s really wonderful to read an interesting quote, often one that I’ve never heard before, and then read the proper translation into Korean, too!

Today’s quote:

Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

읽다가 죽더라도 멋져 보일만한 책을 항상 읽으라.

P. J. O’Rourke

I made the following image from a quote that was tweeted a couple days ago. The William Shakespeare quote “To thine own self be true” has always been my personal motto. I created this to help me learn the Korean translation.
