It is well that young men should begin at the beginning and occupy the most subordinate positions. Many of the leading businessmen of Pittsburgh had a serious responsibility thrust upon them at the very threshold of their career. They were introduced to the broom, and spent the first hours of their business lives sweeping out the office. I notice we have janitors and janitresses now in offices, and our young men untunately miss that salutary branch of business education. But if by chance the professional sweeper is absent any morning, the boy who has the genius of the future partner in him will not hesitate to try his hand at the broom. It does not hurt the newest comer to sweep out the office if necessary. I was one of those sweepers myself. Assuming that you have all obtained employment and are fairly started, my advice to you is “aim high”. I would not give a fig the young man who does not aly see himself the partner or the head of an important firm. Do not rest content a moment in your thoughts as head clerk, or eman, or general manager in any concern, no matter how extensive. Say to yourself, “My place is at the top.” Be king in your dreams. And here is the prime condition of success, the great secret concentrate your energy, thought, and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged. Having begun in one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it, adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it. The concerns which fail are those which have scattered their capital, which means that they have scattered their brains also. They have investments in this, or that, or the other, here there, and everywhere. “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” is all wrong. I tell you to “put all your eggs in one basket, and then watch that basket.” Look round you and take notice, men who do that not often fail. It is easy to watch and carry the one basket. It is trying to carry too many baskets that breaks most eggs in this country. He who carries three baskets must put one on his head, which is apt to tumble and trip him up. One fault of the American businessman is lack of concentration. To summarize what I have said aim the highest; never enter a bar room; do not touch liquor, or if at all only at meals; never speculate; never indorse beyond your surplus cash fund; make the firm’s interest yours; break orders always to save owners; concentrate; put all your eggs in one basket, and watch that basket; expenditure always within revenue; lastly, be not impatient, as Emerson says, “no one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourselves." 85

Six Way to Turn Desires into GoldThe method by which desire riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent, consists of six definite, practical steps, theseFirst fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say "I want plenty of money." Be definite as to the amount. (There is a psychological reason definiteness which will be described in a subsequent chapter.)Second determine exactly what you intend to give in return the money you desire. (There is no such reality as "something nothing.") Third establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.th create a definite plan carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are or not, to put this plan into action.Fifth write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.Sixth your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just bee retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. As you --see and feel and believe yourself aly in possession of the money.It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe, and follow the instructions in the sixth paragraph. You may complain that it is impossible you to "see yourself in possession of money" bee you actually have it. Here is where a burning desire will come to you aid. If you truly desire money so keenly that your desire is an obsession, you will have no difficulty in convincing yourself that you will acquire it. The object is to want money, and to become so determined to have it that you convince yourself you will have it. 1

Chopin;The Beautiful Soul of MusicCan Frederic Chopin, who wrote no 1)symphonies, no operas, and no )string quartets, who wrote only the piano, be considered one of the greatest classical composers of all time? Instrument makers and composers have long devoted their lives to creating sounds that capture the range and essence of the most emotional instrument of all the human voice. From the outset, Chopin 3)incorporated the singing or )cantabile style into almost all of his piano compositions. those who heard Chopin play it seemed like the piano was invented him and he it. Today his compositions continue to be permed more than any others the piano. Chopin proved that the full 5)scope and range of an 6)orchestra can be experienced from a solo piano.Frederic Chopin was born in 18 in a small Polish town near Warsaw. His mother was Polish, his father French. Chopinrsquo;s incredible talent was apparent at a young age; by the time he was seven he had aly written several pieces. By the 7)ripe old age of nine he was perming publicly in Warsaw. Like every other European 8)wunderkind that showed great talent on the piano, he was being 9)touted as the new Mozart. Chopin studied music at the celebrated Warsaw )Conservatory. After graduating in 1830, he )embarked on a solo tour to find fame and tune in Europe. While perming in Vienna, he learned of Russiarsquo;s invasion of Poland. Unable to return home, he went to Paris where he found himself among thousands of Polish )exiles. Chopin decided to stay among them and pursue a career in perming and teaching. The )frail sickly soft-spoken and elegant Chopin became a favourite of Paris high society.Another thing that also astonished his )contemporaries was how he buried the traditional roles of the left and right hands. The ;D Flat Major )Prelude; is a good example of this the left hand begins with the raindrop )accompaniment while the right hand carries the melody. Note how a few bars in they switch. Chopin was a master of short ms he had popularized his native )polonaises and 18)mazurkas and was known the brilliance of his 19) egrave;tudes and preludes. But it is Chopinrsquo;s )nocturnes that will be ever synonymous with his name. As their title suggests, they are dreamy night pieces, with melodies many people consider among the most beautiful ever written.【生词注释】1) symphony n. 交响乐,交响曲) string quartet 弦乐四重奏曲3) incorporate v. 加入,结合) cantabile a. 歌唱般的5) scope n. 发挥作用或能力的余地6) orchestra n. 交响乐队,管弦乐队7) ripe old age 高龄,通常指人活到较老的年龄,这里指肖邦在九岁时,他的作品与演奏已是炉火纯青8) wunderkind n.

In all societies, male and female roles are regarded differently. The mother role is universally carried out by women, which is biologically based. Roles defined by sex also characterize the economic sphere so that the tasks men perm are different from those women perm. This difference is not any outgrowth of the biological differences between men and women. A specific task may be associated with men in one society and with women in another. Milking herd animals, example, may be women’s task in some societies and a man’s task in others.   Males and females are each associated with different kinds of behavior. These concepts of male and female behavior extended to how people walk, sit, talk and dress. In our society, as in all others, men walk and talk in certain ways and until recently dressed very differently from women. In some societies, different spatial areas are associated with males and females. Women in many Middle Eastern societies are restricted to certain parts of the house and may only come into contact with the males who are members of their family. In such societies, the coffee house and the market are defined as male domains. In contrast, in some West African societies, women most often appear in the marketplace. Sometimes, men choose to carry out female rather than male roles. In some cases, some men dress like women and perm female tasks. On the other hand, females who carry out male roles usually dress and act like men. Because of women’s association with mothering and the home, women are associated with the domestic affairs and men are associated with the public affairs. In a number of New Guinea societies, men are associated with the men’s house in which they eat and sleep while women are associated with their own dwelling houses. In our own and other Western societies this division was true until the beginning of the th century. Politics, the courts, businesses, banks, and so th were male areas, and so too were the social clubs where real business was carried out. At the beginning of the th century, women began to question the assignment of the male and female role. They med social groups and began to demand the right to vote. They began to move into the business and professional worlds as well. Men regarded the women pioneers in this movement as very manlike. Even today women in business, law or banking wear very tailored, conservative suits to work. As these changes occur in female roles in contemporary American society, men are increasingly taking on child care and domestic tasks. 19
