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/aa19183617.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.

爱的经历就像一首鲜活灵动的诗;爱的经历就像一个个美妙动听的音符,

让企盼的双耳得到振奋、满足;爱的经历就像战场上舍己救人的一幕;爱的经历就像赋予人新生的选择;爱的经历就像依偎在期盼已久的爱人臂弯时所流露出的无尽爱意。

What do you do with the love granted to you each day? How many times do we deny its expression for others because we fear what our own expressions will bring? Are we not denying our creator every time we deny the expression of love?

你是怎样对待每天给予你的爱的呢?有多少次由于害怕被拒绝,我们未能

向他人表达爱意?在每次拒绝爱的表白之时,难道我们不是拒绝造物主的恩赐吗?

Lost, empty, alone and searching. As individuals who have experienced separation or divorce, or even the loss of a loved one to death, the separation can be the most traumatic experience we live through. The heart-wrenching pain that seems to never really go away,

the enormous waves that hit us daily, the times we hit the wall right after a strong and uplifting experience reminds us that we are learning. We are learning about strength, passion for our own life, about our own sincerity in our beliefs, about our loyalty to who we are, and certainly about our own genuineness. We search for that day when love will come again. We search everywhere, everyday, almost every hour.

迷茫、空虚、孤独、寻觅。对于那些经历过分别、离异,甚至失去过爱人的人来说,这样的离别乃是生命中最大的伤痕。揪心的伤痛永无此境;生活中的挫

折和磨难无时无刻不在提醒我们:我们正处于认知的过程中。我们正在认识自己生命的力量和激情,认识对信仰的虔诚,认识对自的忠贞,认识自己的本性。我们期待真爱重回的那一天,我们每时每刻都在每个角落寻觅。

It has been said for centuries tha t “ love is where the eyes meet with passion, for the eyes cannot hide what the heart feels.” So we have learned to look outward for this eternal love that will fulfill us, forgetting that it must first fill our own hearts. Perhaps that is why we fall into such pain and agony and sorrow when a love affair fails. It is at that moment that we realize we did not fail the other person we expressed love to , but we have somehow not fulfilled ourselves once again. We combat failure with a misunderstood unfulfilled promise. We lade it, not knowing if we will ever find it again. The emotion tides

life and fall ,crash and settle, then lift again.

几个世纪以来,我们一直说:“爱就是充满激情的目光相遇,因为眼睛掩饰不住内心的真实感受”。因此,我们都学会了向外看,去寻找那份永恒的能使自

己充实起来的爱,却忽略了它首先应占据我们自己心灵的领地。或许,这就是当一段恋情受挫时,我们会如此地痛苦和悲伤的原因所在。此时,我们才意识到,我们并未负于曾向我们示爱的那个人,只是我们认为它没能让我们充实、完整。我们用误解且无法兑现的承诺来抑制失败。我们失去了爱,不知是否能再次找回它。感情的潮水起伏不定,时而汹涌,时而平和,继而会再次澎湃。

No one else, no matter how much we talk or cry, can pull us through the anxious hours of soul repair and growth. It is our own fire within that needs rekindling, guarding against the winds that would blow it out and leave us dark, cold and helpless. It is at this time that we find the lobe that binds us together with every other being that surrounds us on the planet. Eventually we find the sun still rises to meet in the morning and the stars continue to show us the way each night. The rivers still flow downstream into oceans that will never turn them away. The trees still reach upward every day praising the God that made them. We stand up straight and take a lesson from it all.

无论我们说了多少话,流了多少泪,无人能帮助我们过心灵修复的阴霾与成长过程中的绵绵阴雨。我们的心灵为火需要再燃,需要呵护,不致让风将其吹灭,不致让自己被黑暗、阴冷和无助所包围。此时,我们便找到把我们与周围的每一个生命维系在一起的那份爱。我们终会发现,太阳依然长期升起,来迎接黎明的到来;星光依然闪烁,来指引我们夜行的方向;江河依然流向下游,归入广纳百川的大海;树木依然日日向上生长,歌颂赋予其生命的上苍。我们挺直身躯,从这一切

中汲取教训。

What if you woke up one morning and realized that you were the only person left on the face of the earth? Who would you love? Why do we wait so long to start the journey that begins in the same place that it ends?Love, in all its endlessness, unboundedness and failed definitions is this experience.

如果某天早上,当你醒来,发觉这个世界只剩下你一人,你当如何应对?

你去爱谁?我们为何要等如此长的时间,才在终点重新形开始新的旅程?这是一次无边无尽、无从定义的爱之旅。

Love doesn’t ask why. It doesn’t come. It doesn’t go. It just is. It is not only in our hands, it is our hands. It isn’t only in our heart, it is what makes our heart beat every beat. It wraps itself around us so securely that all we need to do to survive against all odds is to recognize it as the very breath we just drew, and the last breath we just let go.

爱不问理由。它不会走近你,也不会远离你。爱始终存在着。它就是我们的手中,在我们的心里,确切地说就是我们的双手,就是我们每一次心跳的动力。爱将我们安全地包围着,我们把它当成每一次真切的呼吸,时刻与爱同在,是我们克服一切困难有秘诀。

Good and Evil(善恶之辨)

John Milton/约翰·弥尔顿(1608~1674),17世纪英国杰出的文学家,出

生清教徒家庭,自幼爱好文学,博览经典著作与欧陆各国文学,代表作《失乐园》、《复乐园》。

Good and evil we know in the field of this World grow up

together almost inseparable; and the knowledge of good is so involved

and interwoven with the knowledge of evil and in so many cunning resemblances hardly to be discerned, that those confused seeds which were imposed on Psyche as an incessant labour to cull out and sort asunder were not more intermixed. It was from out the rind of one apple tasted that the knowledge of good and evil as two twins cleaving

together leapt forth into the World. And perhaps this is that doom which Adam fell into of knowing good and evil, that is to say of knowing good by evil. As therefore the state of man now is, what wisdom can there be to choose, what continence to forbeare, without the knowledge of evil? He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true warfaring Christian. I cannot praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue, unexercised and unbreathed,

that never sallies out and sees her adversary, but sinks out of the race, where that immotal garland is tobe run for not without dust and heat. Assuredly we bring not innocence into the world, we bring impurity much rather: that which purifies us is trial, and trial is by what is contrary…

我们所认识的善与恶在这个尘世的范围内总是相伴生长,密不可分的;而

善与恶的知识又是这样的错综纠缠,且惯以形容酷肖的面目出现,这中间的纷纭程度,较之作为长期苦役而罚使塞娥不停分拣的混杂败种,可能更有过之。谁能料到,善与恶的知识这对紧紧相依的孪生兄弟便是从一只吃过的苹果之中,破皮跃入这个世界的。这或许也即是昔年亚当曾经坠入其间的那个劫数——明善恶之辨,或曰,藉恶以知善。因此,既然人类已成为今天这种情形,试问离开对恶的知识,智慧将何得而选择,坚忍又何从而施行?那种能将罪恶及其一切诱饵与声色之乐一并

擒拿在手,细加审视,而仍能知所趋避,而仍能明辨是非,而仍能择善而从的人,这种人方不愧为真正善战的基督徒。至于那种于德无所施,于行无所表的逋逃隐遁性的道德,那种从未有冲杀应敌之劳,而只是临阵一逃了事的道德,我委实不敢赞一词;须知不朽之花环是很少可以不备极艰苦而后得到的。显然,我们所携入这个世界的并非纯真一片,我们所带来的倒无虑是种种之不洁;致我们于纯洁者是考验,而考验则必借相反的事物……

For as in a body, when the blood is fresh, the spirits pure and vigorous not only to vital but to rational faculties and those in the acutest and the pertest operations of wit and subtlety, it argues in what good plight and constitution the body is, so when the cheerfulness of the people is so sprightly up, as that it has not only wherewith to guard well its own freedom and safety but to spare, and to bestow upon the solidest and sublimest points of controversy and new invention, it betokens us not degenerated, nor drooping to a fatal decay, but casting of fthe old and wrinkled skin of corruption to outlive these pangs and wax young again, entering the glorious ways of Truth and prosperous virtue destined to become great and honourable in these latter ages. Methinks I see in my mind a noble and puissant Nation rousing herself like a strong man after sleep, and shaking her invincible locks. Methinks I see her as an Eagle mewing her mighty youth, and kindling her undazzled eyes at the full midday beam, purging and unscaling her long abused sight at the fountain itself of heavenly radiance, while the whole noise of timorous and flocking birds, with those also that love the twilight, flutter about, amazed at what she means, and in their envious gabble would prognosticate a year of sects and schisms.

正像在躯体方面,当一个人的血液鲜活,各个基本器官与心智官能中的元气精液纯洁健旺,而这些官能又复于其机敏活泼的运用中恣骋其心智的巧慧的时候,往往可以说明这个躯体的状况与组织异常良好那样,同理,当一个民族心情欢快,意气欣欣,非但能绰有余裕地去保障其自身的自由与安全,且能以余力兼及种种坚实而崇高的争议与发明,这也会向我们表明了它没有倒退,没有陷入一蹶不振的地步,而是脱掉了衰朽腐败的陈皱表皮,经历了阵痛而重获青春,从此步入足以垂懿范于今兹的真理与盛德的光辉坦途。我觉得,我在自己的心中仿佛瞥见了一个崇高而勇武的国家,好像一个强有力者那样,正从其沉酣之中振身而起,风鬓凛然。我觉得,我仿佛瞥见它是一头苍鹰,正在挣脱着它幼时的健翮,它那目不稍瞬的双睛因睁对中午的炎阳而被燃得火红,继而将它的久被欺诓的目光疾扫而下,俯瞰荡漾着天上光辉的清泉本身,而这时无数怯懦群居的小鸟,还有那些性喜昏暗时分的鸟类,却正在一片鼓噪,上下翻飞,对苍鹰的行径诧怪不已;而众鸟的这种恶毒的唧唧喳喳将预示着未来一年的派派系系。

why Measure Life in Heartbeats?

Hemingway once wrote that courage is grace under pressure. But I wouldrather think with the 18th-century Italian dramatist, Vittorio Alfieri, that"often the test of courage is not to die but t0 1ive." For living with cancerengenders more than pressure; it begets terror. To

live with it, to face up toit-that's courage.

Hope is our most effective "drug" in treating cancer. There is almost nocancer (at any stage) that cannot be treated. By instilling hope in a patient,we can help develop a positive; combative attitude to his disease. Illogical,unproven? Perhaps. But many doaors believe that this must become a partof cancer therapy if the therapy is to be effective.

I have had the joy of two beautiful and wonderful wives, the happiness ofparenthood and the love of eight children. My work was constantly chal-lenging and fulfilling. I have always loved music and books, ballet and thetheater. I was addicted to fitness, tennis, golf, curling, hunting and fishing.

Good food and wine graced my table. My home was a warm and happyplace.

But when I became aware of my imminent mortality, my attitudes changed.

There was real meaning to the words, "This is the first day of the rest ofyour life." There was a heightened awareness of each sunny day, the beautyof flowers, the song of a bird. How often do we reflect on the joy of breath.

ing easily, of swallowing without effort and discomfort, of walking withoutpain, of a complete and peaceful night's sleep?

After I became ill, I embarked upon many things I had been putting offbefore. I read the books Ihad set aside for retirement and wrote one myself,entitled TheArt of Surgery. My wife Madeleine and I took more holidays.

We played tennis regularly and curled avidly; we took the boys fishing. WhenI review these past few years, it seems in many ways that I have lived alifetime since I acquired cancer. On my last holiday in the Bahamas, as Iwalked along the beach feeling the gentle waves wash over my feet, I felt apart of tlie universe, even if only a minuscule

one,like a grain of sand on thebeach.

Although I had to restrict the size of my practice, I felt

closer empathy withmy patients. When I walked into the Intensive Care Unit there was an awe-some feeling knowing I, too, had been a patient there. It was a special satis-faction to comfort my patients with cancer, knowing that it is possible toenjoy life after the anguish of that diagnosis. It gave me a warm feeling tosee the sparkle in one patient's eyes-a man with a totallaryngectomy-when I asked if he would enjoy a

cold beer and went to get him one.

If one realizes that our time on this earth is but a tiny

fraction of that withinthe cosmos, then life calculated in years may not be as important as wethink. Why measure life in heartbeats? When life is so dependent on such anunreliable function as the beating of the heart, then it is fragile indeed. Theonly thing that one can depend upon with absolute certainty is death.

I believe that death may be the most important part of life. I believe that lifeis infinitesinially brief in relation to the immensity of eternity. I believe,because of my religious faith, that I shall "return to the Father"in an afterlifethat is beyond description. I believe that though my life was short in years, itwas fullin experience, joy, love and accomplishment; that my owriimmor-tality will reside in

the memories of my loved ones left behind, mother,brother, wife, children, dear friends. I believe that I will die with loved onesclose

by and, one hopes, achieve that great gift of God-ileath in peace, andwith dignity.

何必以心跳定生死?

海明威曾经写过,勇气就是临危不惧。不过,我更赞同18世纪意大利戏

剧家维多利奥·阿尔菲利的观点:“对勇气的考验往往不是去死,而是要活。”身患癌症,不仅带来痛苦,而且引起恐惧。抱病生活,并敢于正视这一现实,这就是勇气。

希望是我们治疗癌症最有效的“药物”。几乎没有任何癌症(无论发展到

哪一期)是不能医治的。把希望灌输到病人心里,我们就可以帮助他树立起积极与

疾病作斗争的观念。也许此话不合逻辑,言之无据,是吗?然而,许多医生认为,要想使疗法有效,这必须成为癌症治疗的一部分。

我有幸先后拥有两位美丽贤惠的妻子所带来的欢欣,体验过为人之父的乐趣,并得到八个子女的爱。过去,我的工作一直富有挑战性,令人有成就感。我一向喜欢听音乐和读书,酷爱芭蕾舞和戏剧。我曾经醉心于健身运动、网球、高尔夫球、冰上溜石、打猎和垂钓。我的餐桌摆满美酒佳肴。我的家温馨而又幸福。

可是,当我知道自己大限将至时,生活态度就变了。“这是您余生的开始。”这句话对我有了实实在在的含义。对每一个晴天丽日,对鸟语花香,我的感触倍加强烈。平日呼吸轻松,吞食自如,走路毫不费劲,一夜安寝到天明,我们几曾回味过其中的乐趣?

患病后,我着手做以前搁置下来的许多事情。我阅读了本来留到退休后才读的书,而且还写了一本题为《外科术》的书。我与夫人马德琳度假更加频繁。我们经常去打网球,劲头十足地在冰上溜石,还带儿子们去钓鱼。回顾过去几年,从许多方面来看,自从得了癌症以后,我似乎已经活了一辈子。上次到巴哈马度假期间,我沿着海滩漫步,海浪轻轻抚揉着我的双脚,此时此刻我蓦然觉得自己与整个宇宙融为一体,尽管我微不足道,就像海滩上的一粒沙子。

虽然我不得不限制自己的医务工作量,我感到与病人更加心灵相通。当我走进特别护理室时,一种敬畏之感油然而生,因为我知道自己也曾是这里的病人。我明白,在经历了被确诊为癌症的极度痛苦之后,仍有可能享受生活,因此,安慰癌症患者成了一种特别的乐事。一位病人做了喉部切除手术,我问他是否想喝冻啤酒,而且为他拿来了一杯,这时我看到他眼里闪现出了火花,一股暖流顿时涌上我的心头。

倘若人们意识到人生在世只不过是宇宙的时间长河中转瞬即逝的一刹那,那么以岁月计算的生命就不会像我们所想的那样重要了。何必以心跳来定生死呢?当生命依赖于心跳这样一种不可靠的功能时,它的确脆弱不堪。而只有死亡才是人们唯一可以绝对依赖的。

我认为死亡可能是人生中最重要的一环。我认为与那漫长的永生相比,生命是极其短暂的。基于我的宗教信仰,我相信在我身后那难以描绘的时光里,我将回归圣父。我相信,我的生命以年月计算,虽然是短暂的,但经历丰富,充满了欢乐、爱情和成就;我将永远活在我所爱的人,即我的母亲、兄弟、儿女和密友的记忆中。我相信,在弥留之际,我的亲朋好友将陪伴在我身旁:我希望得到上帝的恩赐——带着尊严,安详地告别人间。

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。

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. “发现”一词,字面上是指揭开某种视线以外的隐藏的事物。不过其实是观察者自身发生了变化。很少人能抗拒熟悉事物带来的舒适,愿意扰乱这种舒适的人更少。然而,正如望远镜、显微镜这些较为近期的发明所揭示给我们的,求知事物具有多种层次。每个事实都有地质层次,没有异端也就无所谓正统。新生儿睁开双眼的那一刻起,发现也就开始了。我是在一天清晨给一头小牛犊接生的时候突然意识到这一点的,不禁大笑。小牛仰起毛茸茸的脑袋看着我,目光中透出这个新生命对世界的一无所知。片刻这前,它还呆在母体里某个黑暗而

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。

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

The son of Mr. Smith, a rich neighbor, used to come to see the blacksmith everyday and for hours and hours he would enjoy himself watching how the tradesman worked. "Young man, why don't you try your hand to learn to make shoe tacks, even if it is only to pass the time?" said the blacksmith. "Who knows, one day, it may be of use to you." The lazy boy began to see what he could do. But after a little practice he found that he was becoming very skilled and soon he was making some of the finest tacks. Old Mr. Smith died and the son on account of the war lost all his goods. He had to leave home and was forced to take up residence in another country. It so happened that in this village there were numerous shoemakers who were spending a lot of money to buy tacks for their shoes and even at times when they paid high prices they were not always able to get what they wanted, because in that part of the country there was a high demand for soldiers' shoes. Our young Mr. Smith, who was finding it difficult to earn his daily bread, remembered that once upon a time he had
