In a business society, where people run about in pursuit of personal gains at the expense of others, it is really difficult to do as you please. Ever since childhood we have been pursuing always; going to school, looking for a job, falling in love, getting married, and striving for success in career and accumulating wealth, but never have we seemed to be contented with ourselves. However, striving for success in career and seeking material profits are two different outlooks or, if you will, two intrinsically different views on what is hardship and what is happiness. But there is one thing that applies in either case, i.e. life is no plain sailing, and things go and grow independent of man’s will. One should instead of indulging in delusions of daydreaming, temper himself in life, as the saying goes, “Heaven does not let down the one that has a will.” Even so, one cannot expect to succeed in everything he undertakes. In short, anyone in pursuit of something is sure to be troubled by something else, and that is the way things are in life.
追逐：in pursuit of，或者直接用动词pursue
本质地：intrinsically。如果不知道intrinsic(固有?#27169;?#26412;?#23454;模?#20869;在的)这个词，可以用basically、fundamentally这一类的词。也可以用其他方法来表达原文中“迥异”这个概念，如：as different as night and day，或者用diametrically，这个词词根是diameter,直径。当然，想不起来这么多，用一个totally也可?#21592;?#36798;出这种例子。大家可以注意多积累一些这样的同义词。
