Europe’s future: Sign of life

Yesterday Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, presented an ambitious set of proposals for the EU’s future. Among them were a rash of trade deals, a beefed-up cyber-security agency and a promise to expand the EU to the western Balkans. The speech showed renewed confidence in the EU’s importance.

凡事唯有投入,結果才能深入; 凡事唯有付出,結果才能傑出; 凡事唯有磨鍊,結果才能熟練; 凡事唯有不煩,結果才能不凡。
能與智者同行,你會不同凡響;能與高人為伍,你能登上巔峰。
你雖不能改變環境, 但卻可以轉換心境;你雖不能樣樣勝利,但卻可以事事盡力。
