1.Virtue 美德
G.Herbert/赫伯特

Sweet day,so cool,so calm,so bright! 甜美的白昼,如此凉爽、安宁、明媚!
The bridal of the earth and sky- 天地间完美的匹配-----
The dew shall weep thy fall to-night; 今宵的露珠儿将为你的消逝而落泪;
For thou must die. 因为你必须离去。
Sweet rose,whose hue angry and brave, 美丽的玫瑰,色泽红润艳丽,

Bids the rash gazer wipe his eye, 令匆匆而过的人拭目而视,
Thy root is ever in its grave, 你的根永远扎在坟墓里,
And thou must die. 而你必须消逝。
Sweet spring,full of sweet days and roses, 美妙的春天,充满了美好的日子和芳香的玫瑰,
A box where sweets compacted lie, 如一支芬芳满溢的盒子,
My music shows ye have your closes, 我的音乐表明你们也有终止,
And all must die, 万物都得消逝。
Only a sweet and virtuous soul, 唯有美好而正直的心灵,
Like season'd timber,never gives; 犹如干燥备用的木料,永不走样;
But though the whole world turn to coal, 纵然整个世界变为灰烬,
Then chiefly lives. 它依然流光溢彩。



2.The country Maid and Her Milk Can
村姑和牛奶罐

A country maid was walking along with a can of milk upon her head,when she fell into the following train
of reflections."The money for which I shall sell this milk will enable me to increase my stock of eggs to
three hundred,These eggs,allowing for what may prove addle,and what may be destroyed by vermin,will
produce at least two hundred and fifty chickens.The chickens will be fit to carry to market just at the time
when poultry is always dear;so that by the new year I cannot fail of having money enough to purchase a
new gown.Green-let me consider-yes,green becomes my complexion best .and green it shall be, In this
dress I will go to the fair,where all young fellows will strive to have me for a parter;but no-I shall refuse
every one of them,and with a disdainful toss turn from them."
Transported with this idea,she could not forbear acting with her head the thought that passed in her
mind,when down came the can of milk!And all her imaginary happiness vanished in a moment.
一个村姑头上顶着一罐牛奶在路上行走。走着走着,她的脑子里浮现出一连串的幻想:“我卖了这罐牛奶后,
用这笔钱买鸡蛋,这样我有的鸡蛋可以增加到300 个。用这300 个鸡蛋孵小鸡,这就算有坏的、生虫的,
至少也能孵出250 只小鸡。等小鸡长大后,正好能赶上卖个好市价;那么到了新年,我就能有钱买一件新
晚装。买一件绿色的——让我好好想想——对,绿色与我的肤色最相衬。我穿上这件衣服去赶集,所有的年
轻小伙子都会抢着邀请我做舞伴;但是不行——我要轻蔑地把头一扬,转身过去不理他们,让他们人人都
碰个钉子。
她想得得意忘形,情不自禁地把头一扬,刹那间,牛奶罐跌了下来!她幻想的一切幸福间破灭了。

3.The Rainy Day雨天
 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 亨利.沃兹渥斯.朗费罗

The day is cold,and dark,and dreary;
It rains,and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the moldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.
My life is cold and dark and dreary;
It rains and the wind is never weary;
My though still cling to the moldering past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.
Be still,sad heart!And cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
天冷、阴暗、沉闷;
下着雨,风也刮个不停;
藤还攀附着颓垣残壁,
每来一阵狂风,枯叶附落纷纷,
天真是阴暗而沉闷。
我的生活寒冷、阴郁、沉闷;
下着雨,风也刮个不停;
我的思想还纠缠着消逝的往事,
大风里,我的青春希望相继熄灭,
天真是阴暗而沉闷。
安静吧,忧伤的心!别再悔恨;
乌云后面太阳依然辉煌灿烂;
你命运和大家的一样,
每个人一生都得逢上阴雨,
有些日子必然阴暗而沉闷。




4.Love 爱情

I love you not because of who you are,but because of who I am when I am with you.
我爱你,不是因为你是一个怎样的人,而是因为我喜欢与你在一起时的感觉。
No man or woman is worth your tears,and the one who is ,won't make you cry.
没有人值得你流泪,值得让你这么做的人不会让你哭泣。
The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them.
失去某人,最糟糕的莫过于,他近在身旁,却犹如远在天边。
Never frown,even when you are sad,because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
纵然伤心,也不要悉眉不展,因为你不知是谁会爱上你的笑容。
To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.
对于世界而言,你是一个人;但是对于某人,你是他的整个世界。
Don't waste your time on a man/woman,who isn't willing to waste their time on you.
不要为那些不愿在你身上花费时间的人而浪费你的时间。
Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,doesn't mean they don't love you with
all they have.
爱你的人如果没有按你所希望的方式爱你,那并不代表他们没有全心全意地爱你。
Don't try to hard,the best things come when you least expect them to.
不要着急,最好的总会在最不经意的时候出现。
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one,so that when we finally
meet the person,we will know how to be grateful.
在遇到梦中人之前,上天也许会安排我们先遇到别人;在我们终于遇见心仪的人时,便应当心存感激。
Don't cry because it is over,smile because it happened.
不要因为结束而哭泣,微笑吧,为你的曾经拥有。
Life is a pure flame,and we live by an invisible sun within us.
-------Sir Thomas Browne
“生命是束纯净的火焰,我们依靠自己内心看不见的太阳而存在。”
--------托马斯。布朗爵士


5.On the Feeling of Immortality in youth
有感于青春常在
William Hazlitt/威廉.赫兹里特
No young man believes he shall ever die.It was a saying of my brother's,and a fine one.
There is a feeling of Eternity in youth,which makes us amend for everything.To be young is to be as one of the Immortal Gods.One half of time indeed is flown-the other half remains in
store for us with all its countless treasures;for there is no line drawn,and we see no limit
to our hopes and wishes.We make the coming age our own-
年轻人不相信自已会死。这是我哥哥的话,可算得一句妙语。青春有一种永生之感——它能弥补一切。
人在青年时代好像一尊永生的神明。诚然,生命的一半已以消逝,但蕴藏着不尽财富的另一半还有所保留,
我们对它也抱着无穷的希望和幻想。未来的时代完全属于我们——

The vast,the unbounded prospect lies before us.
无限辽阔的远景在我们面前展现

Death.old age.are words without a meaning.that pass by us like the idea air which we regard
not.Others may have undergone,or may still be liable to them-we "bear a charmed life",which
laughs to scorn all such sickly fancies.As in setting out on delightful journey,we strain ou
r eager gaze forward-
死亡,老年,不过是空话,毫无意义;我们听了,只耳边风,全不放在心上。这些事,别人也许经历过,
或者可能要承受,但是我们自己,“在灵符护佑下度日”,对于诸如此类脆弱的念头,统统付之轻蔑的一
笑。像是刚刚走上愉快的旅程,极目远眺——

Bidding the lovely scenes at distance hail!
向远方的美景欢呼!

-and see no end to the landscape,new objects presenting themselves as we advance;so,in the
commencement of life,we set no bounds to our inclinations.nor to the unrestricted opportunities of
grastifying them.we have as yet found no obstacle,no disposition to flag;and it seems that we can go on
so forever.We look round in a new world,full of life,and motion,and ceaseless progress;and feel in
ourselves all the vigour and spirit to keep pace with it,and do not foresee from any present symptoms how
we shall be left behind in the natural course of things,decline into old age,and drop into the grave.It is the
simplicity,and as it were abstractedness of our feelings in youth,that(so to speak)identifies us with
nature ,and(our experience being slight and our passions strong)deludes us into a belief of being immortal
like it.Our short-lives connexion with existence we fondly flatter ourselves,is an indissoluble and lasting
union-a honeymoon that knows neither coldness,jar,nor separation.As infants smile and sleep,we are
rocked in the cradle of our wayward fancies,and lulled into security by the roar of the universe around
us0we quaff the cup of life with eager haste without draining it,instead of which it only overflows the
more-objects press around us,filling the mind with their magnitude and with the strong of desires that
wait upon them,so that we have no room for the thoughts of death.
此时,但觉好风光应接不暇,而且,前程更有美不胜收的新鲜景致。在这生活的开端,我们听任自己的志
趣驰骋,放手给它们一切满足的机会。到此为止,我们还没有碰上过什么障碍,也没有感觉到什么疲惫,
因此觉得还可以一直这样向前走去,直到永远。我们看到四周一派新天地——生机盎然,变动不居,日新
月异;我们觉得自己活力充盈,精神饱满,可与宇宙并驾齐驱。而且,眼前也无任何迹象可以证明,在大
自然的发展过程中,我们自己也会落伍,衰老,进入坟墓。由于年轻人天真单纯,可以说是茫然无知,因
而将自己跟大自然划上等号;并且,由于经验少而感情盛,误以为自己也能和大自然一样永世长存。我们
一厢情愿,痴心妄想,竟把自己在世上的暂时栖身,当作千古不变、万事长存的结合,好像没有冷淡、争
执、离别的密月。像婴儿带着微笑入睡,我们躺在用自己编织成的摇篮里,让大千世界的万籁之声催哄我
们安然入梦;我们急切切,兴冲冲地畅饮生命之杯,怎么也不会饮干,反而好像永远是满满欲溢;森罗万
象纷至沓来,各种欲望随之而生,使我们腾不出工夫想死亡。
