親愛的孩子,越知道你中文生疏,我越需要和你多寫中文;同時免得彌拉和我們隔膜,也要盡量寫英文。有時一些話不免在中英文信中重復,望勿誤會是我老糊涂。從你婚後,我覺得對彌拉如同對你一樣負有指導的責任︰許多有關人生和家常瑣事的經驗,你不知道還不打緊,彌拉可不能不學習,否則如何能幫助你解決問題呢?既然她自幼的遭遇不很幸福,得到父母指點的地方不見得很充分,再加西方人總有許多觀點與我們有距離,特別在人生的淡泊,起居享用的儉樸方面,我更認為應當逐漸把我們東方民族(雖然她也是東方血統,但她的東方只是徒有其名了!)的明智的傳統灌輸給她。前信問你有關她與生母的感情,務望來信告知。這是人倫至性,我們不能不關心彌拉在這方面的心情或苦悶。 貝多芬並不超越自然界︰浩瀚的天地對他已經足夠。可是舒伯特還嫌狹小。他要逃到一些光怪陸離的領域(fantasticregions)中去︰他具有最高度的超囪然的感覺(hepossessesinhighestdegreethesupernaturalsense)。五月激情婷婷 色婷婷五月 在貝多芬身上充沛無比而為舒伯特所絕無的,是意志。貝多芬既是英雄精神的顯赫的歌手,在他與命運的斗爭中自己也就是一個英雄。舒伯特的天性中可絕無英雄氣息。他主要是女性性格。他缺乏剛強,渾身都是情感。他不知道深思熟慮,樣樣只憑本能。他的成功是出于偶然。{按︰這句話未免過分,舒伯特其實是很用功的。}他並不主動支配自己的行為,只是被支配。{就是說隨波逐流,在人生中處處被動。}他的音樂很少顯出思想,或者只發表一些低級的思想,就是情感與想像。在生活中像在藝術中一樣,他不作主張,不論對待快樂還是對待痛苦,都是如此,他只忍受痛苦,而非控制痛苦,克服痛苦。命運對他不公平的時候,你不能希望他挺身而起,在幸福的廢墟之上憑著高于一切的意志自己造出一種極樂的境界來。但他忍受痛苦的能耐其大無比。對一切痛苦,他都能領會,都能分擔。他從極年輕的時候起已經體驗到那些痛苦,例如那支精彩的歌《瑪葛麗德紡紗》。他盡情流露,他對一切都寄與同情,對一切都椎心置腹。他無窮無盡的需要宣泄感情。他的心隱隱約約的與一切心靈密切相連。他不能缺少人與人間的交接。這一點正與貝多芬相反︰貝多芬是個偉大的孤獨者,只看著自己的內心,絕對不願受社會約束,他要擺脫肉體的連系,擺脫痛苦,擺脫個人,以便上升到思考中去,到宇宙中去,進入無掛無礙的自由境界。舒伯特卻不斷的向自然{按︰這里的自然包括整個客觀世界,連自己肉體與性格在內。}屈服,而不會建造“觀念”(原文是大寫的的Idea)來拯救自己。他的犧牲自有一種動人肺腑的肉的偉大,而非予人以信仰與勇氣的靈的偉大,那是貧窮的偉大,寬恕的偉大,憐憫的偉大。他是墮入浩劫的可憐的阿特拉斯(Atlas)?。阿特拉斯背著一個世界,痛苦的世界。阿特拉斯是戰敗者,只能哀哭而不會反抗的戰敗者,丟不掉肩上的重負的戰敗者,忍受刑罰的戰敗者,而那刑罰正是罰他的軟弱。我們盡可責備他不夠堅強,責備他只有背負世界的力量而沒有把世界老遠丟開去的力量。可是我們仍不能不同情他的苦難,不能不佩服他浪費于無用之地的巨大的力量。 婷婷丁香五月 不願意把物質的事掛在嘴邊是一件事,不糊里糊涂莫名其妙的丟失錢是另一件事!這是我與你大不相同之處。我也覺得提到阿堵物是俗氣,可是我年輕時母親(你的祖母)對我的零用抓得極緊,加上二十四歲獨立當家,收入不豐;所以比你在經濟上會計算,會籌劃,尤其比你原則性強。當然,這些對你的藝術家氣質不很調和,但也只是對像你這樣的藝術家是如此;精明能干的藝術家也有的是,蕭邦即是一個有名的例子︰他從來不讓出版商剝削,和他們談判條件從不怕煩。你在金錢方面的潔癖,在我們眼中是高尚的節操,在西方拜金世界和吸血世界中卻是任人魚肉的好材料。我不和人爭利,但也絕不肯被人剝削,遇到這種情形不能不爭。這也是我與你不同之處。但你也知道,我爭的還是一個理而不是為錢,爭的是一口氣而不是為的利。在這一點上你和我仍然相像。

The International Space Station (ISS) is a permanently crewed on-orbit laboratory that enables scientific research supporting innovation on Earth and future deep space exploration. From design to launch, 15 countries collaborated to assemble the world's only permanently crewed orbital facility, which can house a crew of six and 150 ongoing experiments annually across an array of disciplines. The ISS represents a global effort to expand our knowledge and improve life on Earth while testing technology that will extend our reach to the moon, Mars and beyond.

Boeing officially turned over the U.S. on-orbit segment of the ISS to NASA on March 5, 2010, and continues to provide key engineering support services and capability enhancements, as well as processing for laboratory experiment racks. Boeing’s assessments have shown it is possible to sustain the life of the station’s primary structural hardware at least through 2030.

Gateway

NASA is working with its partners and suppliers to design and develop the Gateway, a moon-orbiting outpost that will serve as a base for human and robotic expeditions on the moon, and for future missions to Mars. The U.S. presidential administration’s goal of “boots on the moon” in 2024 relies on the Gateway.

Boeing’s Gateway concept builds on the company’s experience from designing, building and operating the ISS for more than 20 years. Boeing is working on a habitation module and an airlock module that doubles as additional living/work space.

Launched aboard rockets including NASA’s Space Launch System, these Gateway modules and others would connect with one another in lunar orbit using NASA’s Orion capsule or a space tug. Following astronauts’ return to the moon’s surface via a lunar lander, the Gateway will become a hub for continuing missions to the moon and Mars for NASA, its international partners, and private companies.

The Nations of the International Space Station

NASA selected Boeing as prime contractor for the International Space Station on Aug. 17, 1993, and the original cost-plus-award-fee contract began on Jan. 13, 1995. Boeing is responsible for maintaining the station at peak performance levels so the full value of the unique research laboratory is available to NASA, its international partners, other U.S. government agencies and private companies.
