People who need people 4/26/2013 17:31
开车时听NPR采访Barbra Streisa, 播放那段熟悉的音乐People who need people are the luckiest people in the world. 转念想,isn't it that people who don't need people are the luckiest people in the world? So who's the real luckiest one?

People who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world
Were children needing other children
And yet letting our grown-up pride
Hide all the need inside
Acting more like children than children
Are very special people
They're the luckiest people in the world
With one person,
One very special person
A feeling deep in your soul
Says you are half now you're whole
No more hunger and thirst
But first be a person who needs people
People, people who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world.

Ok, who cares? It's a pretty song.
No Man Is An Island

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

John Donne是十六十七世纪的英国诗人,多年以后1940年海明威巨作For Whom the Bell Tolls书名来源于这首古诗。

Luckiest or not, no man is an island, we do need other people. Ever wonder why we're afraid to ask for help from other people?

The problem is, so many of us either ask the wrong people who give us tactical answers that aren't right for us, or don't ask anyone at all!

We try to do it all ourselves...then wonder why we're not getting ahead.

I wonder how many of us had reached out to other people to cultivate relationships and manage fear.
