All the world's a stage

As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII [All the world's a stage]
William Shakespeare, 1564 - 1616


Jaques to Duke Senior

                          All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.
Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

如果世界是一個舞台,我希望我是最努力演出而令觀眾印象深刻的一個。

曾被電視劇、電影誤導,誤信有one-off luck這回事。當然那是很天真的想法,一踏上舞台就能唱能演、才華橫溢能有幾個。

這個道理我很深刻,是因為以前合唱團在選拔soloist,一出聲便高下立見,不由得你爭辯什麼。

所謂「台上一分鐘,台下十年功」,那幾分鐘的光輝並不是偶然或是單靠天份便成,別人看見的是成果,背後的努力不必言說,不需炫耀,最重要問心無愧。

上Law and Ethics說到professional judgement,雖說我們不應該去judge病人,可是脫離了工作,生活上judge其他人其實是最自然的事情,無可避免。

有句話:「極限是為了衝破而存在。」所以我很喜歡衝擊stereotype,那份自豪和滿足感,雖然很虛無縹緲,卻是為我帶來無限歡樂。

長得嬌小即是柔弱、baby face即是innocent and ignorant、理科人就不會有文筆、新鮮人即是什麼都不知道、亞洲臉孔就一定有亞洲口音、英文講得好中文就沒那麼好⋯⋯

很努力的prove people wrong,享受掌聲之餘,因為不知不覺已經習慣了有掌聲,少了半分就跟自己過不去。掌聲和驚奇少了半分就自覺做得不好。其實做得好不好自己心裡有數,別人怎麼看是客觀,自省過後可能有不同的答案。

樂於做與眾不同的一個,這樣人生才好玩有趣。

很矛盾的感覺,畢竟我一直是低調為主,明明得獎受稱讚都不說一句,不開心也不察覺吧,I'm keeping my cool.
