As the Secretary General of the United Nations, an organizations of the 147 member states who represent almost all of the human inhabitants of the planet earth. I send greetings on behalf of the people of our planet. We step out of our solar system into the universe seeking only peace and friendship, to teach if we are called upon, to be taught if we are fortunate. We know full well that our planet and all its inhabitants are but a small part of the immense universe that surrounds us and it is with humility and hope that we take this step.

作为联合国秘书长,一个拥有147个成员国,代表了几乎所有地球居民的组织, 我向你们送去全人类的问候。我们走出太阳系的家门进入这宇宙,只为寻找和平和友谊,抑或应邀倾囊相授,抑或有幸聆听教诲。我们很清楚,我们星球及上面的所有生灵,只不过是这广阔宇宙中微小的一部分。我们谦卑而满怀希望地迈出这一步。

—— 1977 库尔特·瓦尔德海姆

为网站配置 Safari 图标

发现很多网站,比如微博、Github、知乎等,在 Safari 的书签图标都是高清无码的。而且这个和 favicon 不是同一个图片,经过搜索,这个原来是为 Safari 单独适配的。

方法很简单,把一个高清的图标放到网站根目录下,改名为:apple-touch-icon.png 就行了。


True Nobility

In a calm sea every man is a pilot.

But all sunshine without shade, all pleasure without pain, is not life at all. Take the lot of the happiest—it is a tangled yarn. Bereavements and blessings, one following another, make us sad and blessed by turns. Even death itself makes life more loving. Men come closest to their true selves in the sober moments of life, under the shadows of sorrow and loss.

In the affairs of life or of business, it is not intellect that tells so much as character, not brains so much as heart, not genius so much as self-control, patience, and discipline, regulated by judgment.

I have always believe that the man who has begun to live more seriously within begins to live more simply without. In an age of extravagance and waste, I wish I could show to the world how few the real wants of humanity are.

To regret one’s errors to the point of not repeating them is true repentance. There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
