Discovery 发现

Diane Ackerman / 迪安.阿克曼

The word “discovery” literally means, uncovering something that’s hidden from view. But whatreally happens is a change in the viewer. The familiar offers comfort few can resist, and fewerstill want to disturb. But as relatively recent inventions such as the telescope and microscopehave taught us, the unknown has many layers. Every truth has geological strata, and youcan’t have an orthodoxy without a heresy. The moment a newborn opens its eyes, discoverybegins. I learned this with a laugh one morning after delivering a calf. When it lifted up its fluffyhead and looked at me, its eyes held the absolute bewilderment of the newly born. A momentbefore it had the even black nowhere of the womb, and suddenly its world was full of colour,movement and noise. I’ve never seen anything so shocked to be alive.




If I Were A Boy Again 假如我又回到了童年

If I were a boy again, I would practice perseverance more often, and never give up a thingbecause it was or inconvenient. If we want light, we must conquer darkness. Perseverancecan som etimes equal genius in its results. “There are only two creatures,” syas a proverb, “who can surmount the pyramids —the eagle and the snail.” If I were a boy again, I wouldschool myself into a habit of attention; I would let nothing come between me and the subject inhand. I would remember that a good skater never tries to skate in two directions at once. Thehabit of attention becomes part of our life, if we begain early enough. I often hear grown uppeople say “ I could not fix my attention on the sermon or book, although I wished to do so” ,and the reason is, the habit was not formed in youth. If I were to live my life over again, I wouldpay more attention to the cultivation of the memory. I would strengthen that faculty by everypossible means, and on every possible occasion. It takes a little hard work at first to rememberthings accurately; but memory soon helps itself, and gives very little trouble. It only needsearly cultivation to become a power.



If I were a boy again, I would cultivate courage. “Nothing is so mild and gentle as courage,nothing so cruel and pitiless as cowardice,” syas a wise author. We too often borrow trouble,and an ticipate that may never appear.” The fear of ill exceeds the ill we fear.” Dangers will arisein any career, but presence of mind will often conquer the worst of them. Be prepared for anyfate, and there is no harm to be freared. If I were a boy again, I would look on the cheerfulside. Life is very much like a mirror: if you smile upon it, I smiles back upon you; but if youfrown and look doubtful on it, you will get a similar look in return. Inner sunshine warms notonly the heart of the owner, but of all that come in contact with it. “ who shuts love out ,in turnshall be shut out from love.” If I were a boy again, I would school myself to say no more often. Imight write pages on the importance of learning very early in life to gain that point where ayoung boy can stand erect, and decline doing an unworthy act because it is unworthy. If Iwere a boy again, I would demand of myself more courtesy towards my companions andfriends, and indeed towards strangers as well. The smallest courtesies along the rough roadsof life are like the little birds that sing to us all winter long, and make that season of ice andsnow more endurable. Finally, instead of trying hard to be happy, as if that were the solepurpose of life, I would , if I were a boy again, I would still try harder to make others happy.




A Wet Sunday In A Country Inn

A wet Sunday in a country inn ! Whoever has had the luck to experience one(1) can alone judgeof(2) my situation. The rain pattered against the casements; the bells tolled for church with amelancholy sound. I went to the windows in quest of something to amuse the eye; but itseemed as if I had been placed completely out of the reach of ail amusement. The windows ofmy bed-room looked out(3) among tiled roofs and stacks of chimneys, while those of mysitting-room commanded a full view of(4) the stable yard. I know of nothing more calculatedto make a man sick of this world than a stable yard on a rainy day. The

place was littered withwet straw that had been kicked about by travellers and stable-boys. In one corner was astagnant pool of water, surrounding an island of muck; there were several half-drowned fowlscrowded together under a cart, among which was a miserable, crest-fallen cock, drenched outof ail life and spirit; his drooping tail matted, as it were, into a single feather, along which thewater trickled from his hack; near the cart was a half- dozing cow, chewing her cud, andstanding patiently to be rained on, with wreaths of vapour(5) rising from her reeking hide; a wall-eyed(6) horse, tired of the loneliness of the stable, was poking his spectral headout of a window, with the rain dripping on it from the eaves; an unhappy cur, chained to adog-house hard by, uttered something every now and then between a bark and a yelp; a drabof a kitchen wench(7) tramped backwards and forwards through the yard in pat- tens, lookingas sulky as the weather itself; everything, iq short, was comfortless and forlorn, excepting acrew of hardened ducks, assembled like boon companions round a puddle and making ariotous noise over their liquor.




高中英语课外读物美文欣赏40篇(双语版) 1《飞鸟集》精选 1夏天的飞鸟,飞到我的窗前唱歌,又飞去了。 Stray birds of summer come to my window to sing and fly away. 2 秋天的黄叶,它们没有什么可唱,只叹息一声,飞落在那里。 And yellow leaves of autumn, which have no songs, flutter and fall there with a sign. 3世界对着它的爱人,把它浩翰的面具揭下了。它变小了,小如一首歌,小如一回永恒的接吻The world puts off its mask of vastness to its lover. It becomes small as one song, as one kiss of the eternal. 4是大地的泪点,使她的微笑保持着青春不谢。 It is the tears of the earth that keep her smiles in bloom. 5无垠的沙漠热烈追求一叶绿草的爱,她摇摇头笑着飞开了。

The mighty desert is burning for the love of a blade of grass who shakes her head and laughs and flies away. 6如果你因失去了太阳而流泪,那么你也将失去群星了。 If you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars. 7跳舞着的流水呀,在你途中的泥沙,要求你的歌声,你的流动呢。你肯挟瘸足的泥沙而俱下么? The sands in your way beg for your song and your movement, dancing water. Will you carry the burden of their lameness? 8她的热切的脸,如夜雨似的,搅扰着我的梦魂。 Her wishful face haunts my dreams like the rain at night. 9有一次,我们梦见大家都是不相识的。 我们醒了,却知道我们原是相亲相爱的。 Once we dreamt that we were strangers. We wake up to find that we were dear to each other. 10忧思在我的心里平静下去,正如暮色降临在寂静的山林中 Sorrow is hushed into peace in my heart like the evening among the silent trees. 11有些看不见的手,如懒懒的微风似的,正在我的心上奏着潺潺的乐声。 Some unseen fingers, like an idle breeze, are playing upon my heart the music of the ripples. 12 "海水呀,你说的是什么?" "是永恒的疑问。" "天空呀,你回答的话是什么?" "是永恒的沉默。" What language is thine, O sea? The language of eternal question. What language is thy answer, O sky? The language of eternal silence. 13静静地听,我的心呀,听那世界的低语,这是它对你求爱的表示呀。 Listen, my heart, to the whispers of the world with which it makes love to you. 14创造的神秘,有如夜间的黑暗——是伟大的。而知识的幻影却不过如晨间之雾。 The mystery of creation is like the darkness of night——it is great. Delusions of knowledge are like the fog of the morning. 15不要因为峭壁是高的,便让你的爱情坐在峭壁上。 Do not seat your love upon a precipice because it is high. 16我今晨坐在窗前,世界如一个路人似的,停留了一会,向我点点头又走过去了。 I sit at my window this morning where the world like a passer-by stops for a moment, nods to me and goes. 17这些微风,是树叶的簌簌之声呀;它们在我的心里欢悦地微语着。

1惟独你不可取代 As a teenager,I felt I was always letting people down. I was rebellious1 out-side,but I wanted to be liked inside. Once I left home to hitch-hike2to California with my friend Penelope. The trip wasn‟t easy,and there were many times I didn‟t feel safe. One situation in particular kept me grateful to still be alive. When I returned home,I was different,not so outwardly sure of myself. I was happy to be home. But then I noticed that Penelope,who was staying with us,was wearing my clothes. And my family seemed to like her better than me. I wondered if I would be missed if I weren‟t there. I told my mom,and she explained that though Penelope was a lovely girl,no one could replace me. I pointed out,“She is more patient and is neater than I have ever been.” My mom said these were wonderful qualities,but I was the only person who could fill my role. She made me realize that even with my faults—and there were many-I was a loved member of the family who couldn‟t be replaced. I became a searcher,wanting to find out who I was and what made me unique. My view of myself was changing. I wanted a solid base to start from. I started to resist3pressure to act in ways that I didn‟t like any more,and I was delighted by who I really was. I came to feel much more sure that no one can ever take my place. Each of us holds a unique place in the world. You are special,no matter what others say or what you may think. So forget about being replaced. You can‟t be. 当我还是个10几岁的少年的时候,觉得自己总是让人失望。从外表上看,我似乎很叛逆,但是在内心深处,我是如此地渴望被人疼爱。 有一次我离开了家和我的朋友佩内洛普搭便车去了加利福尼亚。这次旅行并不轻松,而且有很多次我感觉不安。有一次的突发状况让我一直庆幸自己还活着。回到家,我发觉自己变了,看上去不那么自信了。 我很高兴能回到家,但不久我注意到和我们一起的佩内洛普穿着我的衣服,而且我父母看上去更喜欢她,我想知道如果我不在家的话他们是否会想念我。后来,我把我的想法告诉了母亲,她说尽管佩内洛普是个可爱的女孩,但她始终不能取代我,我说:“她比我有耐心而且无论何时看上去她都比我要整洁大方。”母亲说这些都是非常好的优点,但我却是惟一个能扮演好自己角色的人。母亲让我感到尽管我有缺点———似乎还很多———但是,我被家中每一个人爱着,谁也无法取代。 我成了一个探寻者,想要知道自己到底是谁,又是什么让我变得独一无二。我的人生观开始改变。我需要一个坚固的基础来发展,我忍受住压力,不再做自己不喜欢做的事。而且我为真实的我感到高兴。渐渐地我越发肯定自己无可替代。 每个人在这个世界上都占有一个独一无二的位置。无论别人说什么,你自己怎么想,你都是特别的。所以,不要担心自己会被取代,因为你永远是惟一的。


高中优秀英语美文阅读篇一 What is Love? 爱是什么? What is Love? The eternal question we all carry around deep within our heart. Love is the eternal search. Love is eternal when we find it. But do we really ever find it ? When we define it do we negate it? When we set limits on what we believe to be love do we begin to destroy it by hoping to understand or own it for ourselves? We offer it through all of our relationship we vary our giving, often by what we hope to receive in return. But is this really love?https://www.wendangku.net/doc/3819201787.html, 爱是什么?这是所有人心底一个永恒的问题。爱,是永恒的寻觅。爱一旦被找到,它也将变为永恒。但是我们真的找到过爱吗?当我们定义爱的同时,是否也在否定爱呢?在给我们所认为的爱加种种限制的同时,我们试图按自己的方式理解它,或想将其据为己有时,我们是否也在破坏它呢?我们将爱施与周围的所有人,而如何给予是由期望的回报来决定的。但这是真正的爱 I recently overheard someone say in a conversation that there is no such thing as “ unconditional love .” I would have to agree, although for different reasons. Love within itself is unconditional. Anything else is only an attempt to love, a learning to get us nearer to the one true knowing of love. It may be honorable, well-intentioned, passionate and desiring, courageous and pure. It may be felt as temporary, but if lost easily it may not have been love at all. Love cannot be thwarted and often fall short of what we hope love will be. This is where we learn we are human. 最近,我无意间听别人说,世上没有所谓的“无条件的爱”。在此,我不得不表示同意这一论断,尽管理由不尽相同,但爱本身确是无条件的。其他一切都仅仅是爱的一种尝试,通过它们去逐渐地理解爱的真谛。爱可能是高贵善意的,是充满热情和渴望的,是勇敢和纯洁的;爱是势不可挡的,而且,常常达不到我们的期望值。由此我们可以透察人性。 Love has been experienced as a life of living poetry. Love has been experienced as being the very notes of song, uplifting and generous to the wanting ear. Love has been experienced as the final act of giving one’s life for another in battle. Love has been experienced as an endless passionate over flow of emotion in the arms of waiting lover.

It had been clear from my pink freckled skin and my lack of enthusiasm for using the word "awesome" that I was from elsewhere. Asking me if I was a Brit, the woman then shared her expectation of the British ability to deliver . I muttered quietly, and it has to be said not with great confidence, that it will be good. I wish that I had been beside my American friend watching television on Friday. With virtually the whole nation, I was amazed, amused and filled with awe at British creativity and achievement. My own whingeing about tickets and our failings as a nation were simply superseded by the delight of history, spectacle and a parachuting monarch. I was proud to be British. Yet pride can be a difficult thing. 早上好。两周前,在休斯敦的一场足球赛上,我旁边一位女士说,她去年到过伦敦,“伦敦奥运会将是一塌糊涂”,或者可以这样委婉地解释。从我长有雀斑的粉色肤色和很少用“酷毙了”这个词,可以明确判断我非英国人。那女士问了我是否是英国人,然后和我分享了她对英国递送能力的期许。我喃喃自语,这不得不说缺少强大信心,但是会好的。我真希望周五那天,和我的美国朋友一起看的电视。事实上,我对英国整个民族的创造力和成就,感到惊奇、愉悦和敬畏。我对无门票的牢骚和对失败国家的抱怨,立刻被厚重的历史、精彩绝

Some people say that society is the best school, which I think is considerably reasonable. Since 2005 when I walked out of my campus, I have learnt what I could never in school. Now I have known what is bitter and what is sweet, what is respect and what is endeavor(努力,尽力), what is giving and what is getting. In different backgrounds, I am playing different roles. Among different groups, I see different faces. Only then did I realize there would not be a word called "pure" in our society. Intangibly I often touch different eye expressions from many other people, which mirror kind of arrogance. They often shout at those who are in lower status roughly. Every time I see these men, "angry" can hardly convey my feelings. Deep out of my heart, I show a great sympathy on them. They are too piteous because they don't even know what is love and respect. Today no matter you are director of the board, manager, head of the department, or others with more authorities, there is no reason or right at all for you to look down upon anyone around you, because everyone has his own value to our society and their own self-esteem. Now maybe you are the director of the board, but without those with a lower status working painstakingly for you, how can you maintain your position so stably? Now maybe you are of great authority, but without the obedience of the public, how can you promote yourself with your so- called "authority"? In our world there exist some people living to their heart's content. They are primarily those kind and modest. Looking at the clean ground beneath your feet, you should know to own it to the environmental cleaners. Enjoying a decent house, you should know to own it to the constructors. Appreciating the toothsome food on the table, you should own it to the peasants industriously working on the farm. Maybe they inferior to you in terms of social status, but you can never look down upon them, for they are the greatest contributors in our society. Now however much money you possess, it

In the evening, the most familiar sight to me would be stars in the sky. Though they were a mere sprinkle of twinkling dots, yet I had become so accustomed to them that their occasional absence would bring me loneliness and ennui. It had been snowing all night, not a single star in sight. My roommate and I, each wrapped in a quilt, were seated far apart in a different corner of the porch, facing each other and chatting away. She exclaimed pointing to something afar, “Look, Venus in rising!” I looked up and saw nothing but a lamp round the bend in a mountain path. I beamed and said pointing to a tiny lamplight on the opposite mountain, “It’s Jupiter over there!” More and more lights came into sight as we kept pointing here and there. Lights from hurricane lamps flickering about in the pine forest created the scene of a star-studded sky. With the distinction between sky and forest obscured by snowflakes, the numerous lamp-lights now easily passed for as many stars. Completely lost in a make-believe world, I seemed to see all the lamplights drifting from the ground. With the illusory stars hanging still overhead, I was spared the effort of tracing their positions when I woke up from my dreams in the dead of night.
