A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. The conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and in life. Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups -- porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain-looking, some expensive, some exquisite -- telling them to help themselves to the coffee.


When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

当所有学生手中都端了一杯咖啡后,教授发话了 :

If you noticed, all the nice-looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.


What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and were eyeing each other's cups.


Now consider this: Life is the coffee and the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life, and do not change the quality of life. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided. So, don't let the cups drive you ... enjoy the coffee instead.

“现在设想一下:如果生活是杯中的咖啡,工作、财富和社会地位就是那些杯子。它们只是维持生活的工具而已,并不改变生活质量。有时候,我们在过于关注杯子的同时却忘了去品 味上帝賜予的咖啡。所以,不要成为杯子的奴隶…好好品味杯中的咖啡。”
