威斯敏斯特大教堂地下室的墓碑

When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits,I dreamed of changing theworld.
當我年輕的時候,我的想像力從沒有受到過限製,我夢想改變這個世界。
As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country. 
But it, too, seemed immovable.
當我成熟以後,我發現我不能改變這個世界,我將目光縮短了些,決定只改變我的國家。
但是,我的國家似乎也是我無法改變的。
As I grewinto my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, 
but alas, they would have none of it.
當我進入暮年後,我發現我不能改變我的國家,我的最後願望僅僅是改變一下我的家庭。
但是,這也不可能。
And now, as Ilie on my death bed, I suddenly realize:
當我躺在床上,行將就木時,我突然意識到:
If I had only changed myself first, then by example I would have changed my family.
如果一開始我僅僅去改變我自己,然後作為一個榜樣,我可能改變我的家庭;
From their in spiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better my country,and who knows, I may have even changed the world.
在家人的幫助和鼓勵下,我可能為國家做一些事情。
然後誰知道呢?我甚至可能改變這個世界。

正如彼德.阿德尼(Peter Adeney)所寫的,這位部落客使用假名“錢鬍子”(Money Moustache)的名字對財務自由寫下的部落格: 『如果你可以擺脫對金錢的需求,你別無選擇,只能做更適合你的工作,更好的為世界奉獻‧‧‧‧如果你是為了愛而不是金錢,你將別無選擇但要做得更好』。
