郵 室 銘

新加坡 梁益智

        票不在多,有珍則名;集不在豐,有專則成。斯是郵室,惟郵學興。圖文認今昔,寸紙慕賢明。談笑 聚同寅,搜藏無重輕。可以研究 票封,論郵經。無酒色之乱性,有知音之相聚。增識益智兼,会友更怡 情。郵家曰:「何愚之有?」

      A collection is like a puzzle: if you have one hundred separate pieces they don't mean anything, It's only when they are put into a context that they tell a story.

    - René Beyer -

    The collector is never finished. You're always looking for anything you don't have that will improve the collection, It's a hobby without end ... for once you decide your collection is complete, you can no longer call yourself a collector.

    - Philippe Stern -

        人生價值, 不在據有事物, 而在觀察賞析, 有所發現, 有所會心, 使上昇為知識, 有助文化研究與發展。

            王世襄《儷松居長物志  自序》 

    You could not own this "gem" forever. No matter for how long you own it, you are merely a tempoeary holder of this "gem". What really matters is how would you appreciate, enjoy and utilize it while you own it.

美國總統杜魯門為 羅斯福總統郵集拍 賣序

上海 陳志川 譯文

        際茲盛會, 予亟願向全世界集 郵家致共祝賀之忱 , 彼輩有功於國際友 誼之促進, 自不待言。 盖唯交通之利器日 蕃, 國族之接觸亦日密 , " 集郵者, 探討人類關係之科 學也 " 旨哉故總統之言。 夫吾美國人民之集 世界各國之郵, 亦犹世界各國人民 集吾國之郵也, 旦夕孜孜, 窮年經營, 一郵之微, 洵足以寬世界之大 , 往史之深。郵學昌 明, 四海乃如兄弟矣。

        故羅總統以公餘之 暇,積郵盈框,為 我國第一集郵家。 總統少即嗜郵,論 者謂其卓越之國際 見解,獲益於郵學 者殊多。余嘗觀其 郵冊,不待鉅細无 遺,抑且牢列精詳 ,正所謂羅各國於 尺員,了如指掌者 也。是共運籌幃幄 ,旋轉乾坤,豈系 偶然者哉,是為序 。
