Mom's Idol/腹有詩書氣自華:娘的偶像

我媽的偶像是位女老師。她說她所認識的人裏,那位女老師的出身與成就相比,是落差最大的。

My mom worships a teacher. Among all the people she knew, that teacher's achievement is the greatest in relative to the social status of her birth.

最近我遇見那位老師。她雖然長得嬌小玲瓏,但在溫暖與親切中,透著威嚴與穩重。半點看不出她出身貧困。

I ran into that teacher recently. Although she is petite, I felt dignity revealed through her elegance, grace, warmth and affection. I could not at all tell she was once poor before.

我媽說,有一回那位老師去政府機關排隊辦公。辦事的人很混,效率很差,而且下班時間就快到了。後來,主管出現,看到這種情形,跳過排在她前面的人直接去向她不住地道歉。

According to my mom, once that teacher was waiting in a queue in a government building. The clerk was very inefficient. The queue grew longer and longer, and it was about closing time. Later, the manager came out, and saw the situation. He bypassed the people in the queue in front of her, walked straight to her, and kept apologizing.

她排在隊伍中,並沒有說話,也沒有特異的舉動。想來她是不怒自威。所謂「腹有詩書氣自華」說的大概就是這個吧?在真有眼光的人看來,這是任何名牌標簽都無法比擬的。不比名牌是身外之物,這真正是自己的,誰都搶不走的。

It was not because of her action, neither had she said anything. The manager must have sense her dignity through her disposition. With this kind of disposition, who needs brand names?

蘇軾〈和董傳留別〉
「麤繒大布裹生涯,腹有詩書氣自華。
厭伴老儒烹瓠葉,強隨舉子踏槐花。
囊空不辦尋春馬,眼亂行看擇婿車。
得意猶堪誇世俗,詔黃新濕字如鴉。」
