[Night Reading] Your problem is that you read too little and think too much.

 

  Cctv news: the Sri Lankan people have passed away, and the character still exists. In 2016, many people left us. He or she devoted all his life to filling and warming each of us, even a country. On the 24th, the night reading column launched the series "2016: The Far Back".

  All the way to the wind, dust, rain and snow, a long river of years, she has always been flexible and clear. Countless wisdom has been deposited in a hundred years of life. She once said, "Your main problem lies in reading too little and thinking too much." Tonight’s story is about Yang Jiang, a famous female writer and literary translator, and about "reading".

  She is the most virtuous wife.

  When Yang Jiang first met in Tsinghua University and Qian Zhongshu at the age of 21, she felt that his brow was "beautiful and beautiful". He described her as "smiling and remembering the first time, the new petals of roses were soaked". He won the Geng Scholarship, and she didn’t hesitate to interrupt her studies, accompany him to Europe to study, do chores outside of study, cook and dress, climb over walls and windows, and do everything.

 

  Many years later, Yang Jiang read a passage describing marriage: "I never thought of getting married before I met her;" I have been married to her for decades, and I have never regretted marrying her, nor have I thought about marrying another woman. " Qian Zhongshu immediately replied, "I am the same as him", and Yang Jiang replied, "Me too."

  She is the most talented woman.

  In 1943, Yang Jiang’s first play "Satisfied" was a blockbuster as soon as it was staged. She became famous before Qian Zhongshu. When Fortress Besieged was published, people all said "Who is Qian Zhongshu" — — Yang Jiang’s husband. Out of that famous narration — — "Those who want to escape from the city want to rush in. For marriage and career. Most of the wishes of life are like this. " Quoted by countless people, it actually came from Yang Jiang’s hand.

  Later, she wrote Six Chapters of Cadre School, Taking a Bath, The Three of us and other works. Even Qian Zhongshu said, "Yang Jiang’s prose is better than mine. Her prose is naturally good, and no one can learn it."

  Even in turbulent years, Yang Jiang did not give up academic research. She is fluent in English and French. When she was nearly 60 years old, she began to learn Spanish from scratch and translated Don Quixote. When the Chinese version of Don Quixote translated by Yang Jiang was published in 1978, it happened that the Spanish king was visiting China, and Deng Xiaoping gave it to the Spanish king as a gift. Her translation has been recognized as a masterpiece so far, and nearly one million copies have been issued, which is the largest number of translations of this book.

 

Reading for pleasure

Text/Yang Jiang

  Reading is like visiting a teacher you admire or visiting a famous scholar.

  Of course, you have to work hard to study and study. You probably have to study hard to take exams, write papers and get a degree. Tao Yuanming is fond of reading. If he was born in today’s world, it would be difficult to go to college, graduate school or TOEFL. I’m only worried that he can’t pass the political economy, and it’s not because he "doesn’t want to know much." I have been hit with a "stick" several times, saying that I "pursue spiritual enjoyment" in reading. I had to bow my head and confess. I also admit that I am not really studying hard. However, "having fun" does not mean pursuing enjoyment. This can be said by those who know it, but not by others.

  I think reading is like dropping in — — The "invisible" string of doors. If you want to see an admired teacher or a famous scholar, you don’t have to say hello beforehand, and you are not afraid to disturb your host. Open the book and break into the door, turn over a few pages and enter the room; And you can go often, always, and if you can’t get to the point, you can leave without saying goodbye, or you can find another clever man and confront him. Don’t ask the host we want to visit whether he lives at home or abroad, whether he belongs to modern ancient times, what his major is, whether he talks seriously or chats and jokes, we can get close enough. We can listen respectfully to Confucius’ disciples recounting the master’s last words, or we may as well ask with a mischievous smile, "You must say what you say ‘ It is also called benevolence and righteousness ’ "Master Meng", if he was born in our same era, would he be an old Marxist-Leninist gentleman? We can stay with Socrates before his death and listen to him talking with a friend; You can also think about the stoic Epictetus’ Golden Jade and Good Words. We can listen to the anecdotes of the previous dynasties, and we can also learn the most mysterious innovation theory of the contemporary era or the deliberately amazing pretentious remark. Anyway, if the words are not speculative or hard to hear, you might as well pull out and even slam the door — — That is to say, the ground is in writing — — No one will blame. This is a rare freedom in the world outside books!

 

  Books are all-encompassing, so that you can know all kinds of people at all times and places without leaving home.

  In a pot hung by Hu Gong, there is no heaven, earth, sun and moon. Every book — — No matter novels, plays, biographies, travel notes, diaries, or even prose poems, there are different worlds, the sun, the moon and the stars, and there are people who live in them. We don’t have to rush to a certain place, spend money on tickets to see some fake products or "lifelike" body double. Just open a page, walk into the real world, and meet the real person, and we can enjoy it earnestly. Say "but you widen your view three hundred miles, by going up one flight of stairs"! We can even see the side of the earth under our feet, and we can reach it in an instant. Although the ancients described books as "vast", the world of books is really "and heaven remains our neighbourhood", which is by no means an idealistic comparison. No matter how big the world is, there is no barrier. The Buddha said "three thousand worlds", which is extremely large. As for the situation of the book, the "present world" is combined with "the past" and "the future world", which is really all-encompassing and runs through the three worlds. But we can stay at home, experience here at will, and ask for advice at any time. Who says that scholars are short-sighted, unreasonable and indifferent to the world? You can get rich experiences here and meet all kinds of people at all times and places.

 

  Life is limited and knowledge is limited. In the world of books, we are all tiny worms.

  Often "drop in" in the book, at least you can get rid of some ignorance and gain more attention. We don’t have to be discouraged and timid when we see people who are hypocritical and full of rhetoric, because although their own homes are not open and people are not allowed to break in, we have always been to their relatives and friends’ homes, and we will know their true faces behind their empty shelves. Once I drove across the grand bridge on the Seine River in Paris, and I saw the poor people who lived under the bridge, collecting garbage for a living and covering newspapers to keep warm. It’s not that my eyes can turn, just because I’ve been to that area to cross the door. It’s a pity that the "body" that "hides" when we "visit" is just a common bone after all. We don’t have the insight of the Tathagata, and we can take a glance at the wisdom accumulated in the world for thousands of years, so we have to always remember Zhuangzi’s famous saying that "life is limited and knowledge is limited." We are just insects in ephemerality (not just insects turned by Sun Dasheng’s hairs). We crawl into the world of books, crawl here and stop there. Sometimes we meet the right person, hear the pleasant words, or occasionally get something from the problems hanging on our hearts, just like we are obsessed with it and are happy to forget the words. This "joy" and "pursuit of enjoyment" are not the same thing, are they?

 

Review ● Yang Jiang’s words

  Everything is born, and man is the spirit of everything. The purpose of heaven and earth to give birth to people should be a person who can be called the spirit of all things. Although people are small and life is short, people can learn, cultivate themselves and improve themselves. The value of people lies in themselves.

  — — Miscellaneous Memories and Miscellaneous Writing

 

  If we say that people are animals with spirituality and conscience, then life is nothing more than knowing yourself, training yourself, and voluntarily transforming yourself unless you are willing to be an animal.

  — — Take a bath

  I grew up in a harmonious and affluent environment, and I know nothing about the world. But I seriously consider what I should learn. The so-called "should" means that it is most beneficial to people, and I have not lived my life in vain. I know this "should" is very exaggerated, so I am ashamed to explain it. Father said, there is nothing that should be done. You should learn what you like best. I’m not at ease. Just ask what you like, right? I like literature. Learn literature? Love reading novels, learn novels? My father said that what I like is the closeness of sex, which is the most suitable for me.

  — — Will drink tea

 

  People have excellent qualities, but there are many evils mixed together, just like a stubborn iron that is burned in the fire and quenched in the water. It is burned and quenched again and again, and then tempered with a lot of tempering, so that the stubborn iron can be turned into steel for casting swords. Gold also needs to be burned to remove impurities before it becomes pure gold. The same is true for people. We learn wisdom from worry and refine virtue from pain.

  — — Walking on the edge of life

 

  The human feelings of the world are more delicious than the bright moon and the breeze; Can be used as a book to read, but as a play. The description in the book and the play, even if lifelike, are just literary works; The world of human feelings is a naive and natural expression, which is often beyond reason, shocking and surprising, giving people more profound benefits and wonderful entertainment. Only the humble people have the best chance to see the truth of the world and human feelings, not the artistic performance in front of the audience.

  — — Invisibility cloak

 

I don’t argue with anyone,

I don’t care who I fight with;

I love nature,

Secondly, art;

My hands are roasting the fire of life to keep warm;

The fire has died down, and I’m ready to go. "

Running to lose weight, these new skills make you more relaxed.

Every year, many people choose running as a weapon to lose weight. However, the situation that they can’t cope with the results is everywhere, the effect is not obvious, and then they are discouraged and give up. This failure history is constantly staged.

Andrew Ka Stoll, a running coach in Lake Mamos, California, USA, gave you a new solution. He put forward the exercise plan is:Shorter time, higher intensity, five times a week, each time within 20 minutes.

This program can not only help you lose those excess weights, but also effectively reduce the risk of cholesterol and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and help maintain the elasticity of your skin.

Step out of the right running rhythm

Many people misunderstand running and regard it as a pure strength challenge, madly improving speed and running distance, but in fact,Stability and rhythm are the essence of running..

At first, we should give priority to comfort and relaxation, and every step should be strong and stable. Once you are short of breath and your heart beats rapidly, it means that you have crossed your comfort zone.

Although this kind of high-intensity running may consume more calories in a short time, it will have a negative impact on the endurance of the body in the long run, causing you to feel tired and even lose your interest and motivation in running.

The gradual rhythm can paint an ideal running picture, and the wind in your ear and the rhythm of breathing find harmony in this stable rhythm.

Beginners should be patient and not driven by short-term benefits. The correct running rhythm will take you to the other side of health.

Speed and terrain: dual elements of running

Running can’t be static. If you always run at the same speed and terrain, the human body will soon adapt to it, and the weight loss effect will gradually decrease.

Therefore, it is very important to pay attention to the change of speed and terrain to maintain running efficiency.

Through different speed training, it can help the energy in the body run smoothly like a small mountain stream.More conducive to burning fat.

Changing the choice of running terrain, such as changing from flat to climbing, can undoubtedly increase the load on the body and consume more calories.

Changing the speed and terrain can not only challenge yourself and improve running endurance, but more importantly, it can stimulate muscles, accelerate metabolism and improve the long-term weight loss effect of running.

At the same time, such changes can also improve the fun of running, break the routine and make the exercise process no longer dull.

Diet regulation: the other side of losing weight

In the process of losing weight, many people tend to have a misunderstanding, that is, they are full of determination and anxiety to lose weight, but they ignore the adjustment of diet intake.

On the contrary, in fact, scientific diet control is one of the key rules for success in the process of losing weight.

For example, after heavy running training, people often feel extremely hungry.

However, if you choose to eat too much, regardless of controlling your appetite, it is likely that all the calories you run will be replenished in the end, and your efforts to lose weight will become stillborn.

Then, in the process of running to lose weight, how should we scientifically adjust the diet?

The first thing to make sure isOn the premise of ensuring basic nutrition, formulate and adjust the diet structure in a timely manner..

For example, after tired running, our body needs rich nutrition to recover. At this time, we can choose to eat carbohydrates contained in vegetables, fruits and staple foods. These are good at helping to restore physical strength, and at the same time, we will not introduce too many extra calories.

Of course, the change of eating habits does not mean that we should deliberately suppress our appetite. After all, physical and mental pleasure is also an important factor in maintaining exercise motivation.

Secondly, we should learnGrasp the intake time of dietAvoid eating too much before running or eating immediately after running, which is likely to burden the gastrointestinal tract and affect the running effect.

Generally speaking, a good energy supply and recovery can be ensured by eating one to two hours before running, and supplementing enough protein and carbohydrates, as well as proper amount of fat, within the next day.

Therefore, when we run to lose weight, we should not only pay attention to speed and time, but also consider many factors such as terrain and food intake, so as to achieve the ideal weight loss effect.

As long as we carry out this plan persistently, I believe it is only a matter of time before we reach the goal of losing weight.
