11.If I were a Boy Again假如我又回到了童年
Anonymous/无名氏

If I were a boy again, I would practice perseverance more often, and never give up a thing because it was or inconvenient. If we want light, we must conquer darkness. Perseverance can sometimes 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 would school myself into a habit of attention; I would let nothing come between me and the subject in hand. I would remember that a good skater never tries to skate in two directions at once.
The habit of attention becomes part of our life, if we be gain early enough. I often hear grown up
people 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 would pay more attention to the cultivation of the memory. I
would strengthen that faculty by every possible means, and on every possible occasion. It takes a little hard work at first to remember things accurately; but memory soon helps itself, and gives very little trouble. It only needs early cultivation to become a power.
假如我又回到了童年,我做事要更有毅力,决不因为事情艰难或者麻烦而撒手不干,我们要光明,就得征服黑暗。毅力在效果上有时能同天才相比。俗话说:“能登上金字塔的生物,只有两种——鹰和蜗牛。”
假如我又回到了童年,我就要养成专心致志的习惯;有事在手,就决不让任何东西让我分心。我要牢记:优秀的滑冰手从不试图同时滑向两个不同的方向。
如果及早养成这种专心致志的习惯,它将成为我们生命的一部分。我常听成年人说:“虽然我希望能集中注意听牧师讲道或读书,但往往做不到。”而原因就是年轻时没有养成这种习惯。
假如我现在能重新开始我的生命,我就要更注意记忆力的培养。我要采取一切可能的办法,并且在一切可能的场合,增强记忆力。要正确无误地记住一些东西,在开始阶段的确要作出一番小小的努力;但要不了多久,记忆力本身就会起作用,使记忆成为轻而易举的事,只需及早培养,记忆自会成为一种才能。




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,” says a wise author.
We too often borrow trouble, and anticipate that may never appear.” The fear of ill exceeds the ill we fear.” Dangers will arise in any career, but presence of mind will often conquer the worst of them. Be prepared for any fate, and there is no harm to be freared.
If I were a boy again, I would look on the cheerful side. Life is very much like a mirror: if you smile
upon it, I smiles back upon you; but if you frown and look doubtful on it, you will get a similar look in return.
Inner sunshine warms not only the heart of the owner, but of all that come in contact with it. “ who shuts love out ,in turn shall be shut out from love.”
If I were a boy again, I would school myself to say no more often. I might write pages on the importance of learning very early in life to gain that point where a young boy can stand erect, and decline doing an unworthy act because it is unworthy.
If I were a boy again, I would demand of myself more courtesy towards my companions and friends, and indeed towards strangers as well. The smallest courtesies along the rough roads of life are like the little birds that sing to us all winter long, and make that season of ice and snow more endurable.
Finally, instead of trying hard to be happy, as if that were the sole purpose of life, I would , if I were a boy again, I would still try harder to make others happy.
假如我又回到了童年,我就要培养勇气。一位明智的作家曾说过:“世上没有东西比勇气更温文尔雅,也没有东西比懦怯更残酷无情。”
我们常常过多地自寻烦恼,杞人忧天。“怕祸害比祸害本身更可怕。”凡事都有危险,但镇定沉着往往能克服最严重的危险。对一切祸福做好准备,那么就没有什么灾难可以害怕的了。
假如我又回到了童年,我就要事事乐观。生活犹如一面镜子:你朝它笑,它也朝你笑;如果你双眉紧锁,向它投以怀疑的目光,它也将还以你同样的目光。
内心的欢乐不仅温暖了欢乐者自己的心,也温暖了所有与之接触者的心。“谁拒爱于门外,也必将被爱拒诸门外。”
假如我又回到了童年,我就要养成经常说“不”字的习惯。一个少年要能挺得起腰,拒绝做不应该做的事,就因为这事不值得做。我可以写上好几页谈谈早年培养这一点的重要性。
假如我又回到了童年,我就要要求自己对伙伴和朋友更加礼貌,而且对陌生人也应如此。在坎坷的生活道路上,最细小的礼貌犹如在漫长的冬天为我们歌唱的小鸟,那歌声使冰天雪地的寒冬变得较易忍受。
最后,假如我又回到了童年,我不会力图为自己谋幸福,好像这就是人生唯一的目的;与之相反,我要更努力为他人谋幸福。

13.A psalm of life人生礼颂
Herry Wadsworth Longfellow/享利.沃兹渥斯.朗费罗

Tell me not in mournful numbers, 请别用哀伤的诗句对我讲;
Life is but an empty dream! 人生呵,无非是虚梦一场!
For the soul is dead that slumbers 因为沉睡的灵魂如死一般,
And things are not what they seem. 事物的表里并不一样。
Life is real! Life is earnest! 人生是实在的!人生是热烈的!
And the grave is not its goal; 人生的目标决不是坟墓;
Dust thou art , to dust returnest, 你是尘土,应归于尘土。
Was not spoken of the soul. 此话指的并不是我们的精神。
Not enjoyment , and not sorrow, 我们的归宿并不是快乐,
Is our destined and our way; 也不是悲伤,
But to act, 实干
That much to-morrow. 才是我们的道路,
Find us farther than to-day. 每天不断前进,蒸蒸蒸日上。
Art is long , and time is fleeting. 光阴易逝,而艺海无涯,
And our hearts , though stout and brave. 我们的心哪——虽然勇敢坚强,
Still , like muffled drums , are beating 却像被布蒙住的铜鼓,
Funeral marches to the grave。 常把殡葬的哀乐擂响。
In the world’s broad field of battle, 在这人生的宿营地,
In the bivouac of Life, 在这辽阔的世界战场,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle! 别做无言的牲畜任人驱赶,
Be a hero in the strife! 做一名英雄汉立马横枪!
Trust no future. Howe’er pleasant! 别相信未来,哪怕未来多么欢乐!
Let the dead Past bury its dead! 让死去的往昔将死亡一切埋葬!
Act, act in the living Present! 上帝在上,我们胸怀勇气
Heart within, and God O’erhead! 行动吧———趁现在活着的好时光!
Lives of great men all remind us 伟人的生平使我们想起,
We can make our lives sublime, 我们能使自己的一生变得高尚!
And departing, leave behind us 当我们辞别人间,
Footprints on the sands of time; 能把足迹留在时间的流沙上,
Footprints that perhaps another, 也许有个遭了船灾的苦难弟兄,
Sailing o’er life solemn main, 他曾在庄严的人生大海中飘航,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, 见到我们的脚印,
Seeing, shall take heart again, 又会满怀信心。
Let us, then, be up and doing, 让我们起来干吧,
With a heart for any fate; 下定决心,不管遭遇怎样;
Still achieving, still pursuing 不断胜利,不断追求,
Learn to labor and to wait. 要学会苦干和耐心等待。


14.Self-Awareness自我意识
Virginia Woolf/弗吉尼亚.吴尔夫

The man who is aware of himself is henceforth independent; and he is never bored, and life is
only too short, and he is steeped through and through with profound yet temperate happiness. He alone lives, while other people, slaves of ceremony, let life slip past time in a kind of dream. Once conform ,once do what other people do finer than they do it, and a lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul, He becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and indifferent.
凡是意识到自我的人从今往后才是独立的;他永远不知疲倦,他明白生命苦短,所以完
全沉浸于深深的而又适度的幸福之中。他独立生活,而别人是繁文缛节的奴隶,在醉生梦死
之中听从生命悄然流逝。一旦循规蹈矩,一旦人为亦为,呆滞就笼罩着灵魂中一切灵敏的神
经和官能。灵魂变得徒有其表,其中空空;迟钝,木然、冷漠。


15.The Flight of youth青春的飞逝

Richard Henry Stoddard/理查德.亨利.斯托达德
There are gains for all our losses. 我们失去的一切都能得到补偿,
There are balms for all our pain; 我们所有的痛苦都能得到安慰;
But when youth,the dream,departs 可是梦境似的青春一旦消逝,
It takes something from our hearts, 它带走了我们心中的某种美好,
And it never comes again. 从此一去不复返。
We are stronger, and are better, 我们变得日益刚强、更臻完美,
Under manhood’s sterner reign; 在严峻的成年生活驱使下;
Still we feel that something sweet 可是依然感到甜美的情感,
Following youth, with flying feet, 已随着青春飞逝,
And will never come again. 不再返回。
Something beautiful is vanished, 美好已经消逝,
And we sigh for it in vain; 我们枉自为此叹息;
We behold it everywhere, 尽管在天地之间,
On the earth, and in the air, 我们处处能见青春的魅力,
But it never comes again! 可是它不再返回!
