한국으로 돌아간다

“사람이 왜 떠나다? 돌아올 수 있기 위해. 온 곳을 다시 볼 수 있기 위해. 거기에 있는 사람들도 당신을 다시 보죠. 시작한 곳으로 돌아오는 것이 한번만이라도 안 떠나는 것과 다르다.”

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry PratchettA Hat Full of Sky

지금 재생 중:

역시 마마무다!

Do Anything (Sylvia Plath)

“Go out and do something. It isn’t your room that’s a prison, it’s yourself.”

“나가서 아무거나 해 봐. 네 방은 감옥이 아니야. 그게 바로 너야.”

-Sylvia Plath

아, 이 속담이 너무 너무 좋아요…Sylvia Plath ❤ Also I purposefully titled this “Do Anything” because I like the way that sounds. Start anywhere. Do anything.

*직접 번역한 속담입니다…..틀린 게 있으면 죄송합니다. I translated this quote myself, so I’m sorry for any mistakes. 

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!

Abigail Adams Quote

Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.

배움은 우연히 얻어지는 것이 아니라 추구하는 열정과 근면함의 결과이다.

– 아비가일 애덤스, Abigail Adams

 

If you want to be good at something, you’re going to have to work for it. It wouldn’t be worth it if just anyone could do it easily. Get on that language learning, now!

Henry Ford Quote

You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.

앞으로 할 행동으로 평판을 쌓을 수는 없다.

– 헨리 포드, Henry Ford

 

So get language learning, people! And reading, writing, running, climbing, LIVING! Now. Right now. The best time to start is now.

Abraham Lincoln – Resolution

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.

늘 명심하라. 성공하겠다는 너 자신의 결심이 다른 어떤 것보다 중요하다는 것을.

Peace Pilgrim

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think another negative thought.

생각이 얼마나 강력한지 깨닫는다면 결코 다시는 부정적인 생각을 각지 않을 것이다.

– 피스 필그림, Peace Pilgrim

Wilson Mizner

A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he gets to know something.

남의 말을 경청하는 사람은 어디서나 사랑받을 뿐 아니라 시간이 흐르면 지식을 얻게 된다.

Korean literature intimidates me…

안녕하세요!

미안합니다 for the long hiatus; I’m finishing up my senior year, combating AP tests, and karate-chopping major projects while deadlines pop out of my ears….but still, shame on me for neglecting my blog!

I know you were just standing forlornly in the rain, waiting for me to post something...right?

Can you forgive me if I give you a David Tennant GIF?

Let’s be honest; while I would love to be at the proficiency level of coming-home-and-tossing-my-things-aside-and-cracking-open-a-book-written-in-Korean-by-Koreans-for-Koreans (a level of proficiency also known as fluent) Continue reading
