"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable think is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes." (from 'Attitude' by Charles Swindoll)

W niedzielę wybrałam się z koleżanką na obiad w DC. W Chinatown i okolicach wszystkie oznaczenia są dwujęzyczne: po angielsku i po chińsku. Strasznie dziwny jest ten chiński; jak to możliwe że McDonald's tłumaczy się przy pomocy trzech znaków, a Chipotle wymaga całej masy? :)


On Sunday night my friend and I had dinner in DC. In Chinatown neighborhood most signs are bilingual: in English and in Chinese. Chinese is quite a curious language; how is it possible that only 3 signs are required to write McDonald's and ton of them to translate Chipotle? :)
