经典哲理:给亲爱儿子的信中英对照

浏览量: 发布时间:2017-12-14 14:26 点击在线免费咨询

一位巨大而又普通父亲,一封情真意切的信。父亲的忠告,送给他三岁大的爱子,一起也启示所有人:人生是一段夸姣的旅程,尽管会有阴雨,重要的是学会爱,学会享用日子,然后高兴终身。

  亲爱的塞斯,

  Dear Seth,

  [1] 你现在仅仅3岁,此时你还不识字,更不用说让你去了解我接下来想在这封信里对你所说的话了。可是我现已苦思冥想了好久,关于你行将面对的人生以及我的日子,我反思我所学会的;考虑一个父亲的责任,力求让你为未来岁月中行将面对的困难做好充分准备。

  You’re only three years old, and at this point in your life you can't read, much less understand what I’m going to try to tell you in this letter. But I've been thinking a lot about the life that you have ahead of you, about my life so far as I reflect on what I've learned, and about my role as a dad in trying to prepare you for the trials that you will face in the coming years.

  [2] 你今日并不能了解这封信的意义,可是某一天,当机遇老练,我期望你能在我与你共享的内容傍边找寻到少许的智慧和价值。

  You won't be able to understand this letter today, but someday, when you're ready, I hope you will find some wisdom and value in what I share with you.

  [3] 你还很年青,生命还没有开端糟蹋你,没有在你的人生路途上安置失望,悲伤孤单,挣扎和苦痛。你还没有被绵长的庸俗作业,被日常日子的冲击搞得筋疲力尽。

  You are young, and life has yet to take its toll on you, to throw disappointments and heartaches and loneliness and struggles and pain into your path. You have not been worn down yet by long hours of thankless work, by the slings and arrows of everyday life.

  [4] 因而,谢天谢地吧。你正处在人生一个夸姣的阶段。还有许多夸姣的阶段会来到你面前,可是都不是垂手而得的,你都得付出代价,阅历危险。

  For this, be thankful. You are at a wonderful stage of life. You have many wonderful stages of life still to come, but they are not without their costs and perils.

  [5] 我期望经过共享一些我所学到的最好的道理能协助你走好人生路。至于任何主张,且把它当作佐料,由于合适我的并不一定适用于你。

  I hope to help you along your path by sharing some of the best of what I've learned. As with any advice, take it with a grain of salt. What works for me might not work for you.

日子会很严酷
Life Can Be Cruel

  [6] 你的日子中一定会有并不友爱的人。他们嘲笑你由于你不同,而在没有更好的理由。他们可能会欺压你或许损伤你。

  There will be people in your life who won't be very nice. They'll tease you because you're different, or for no good reason. They might try to bully you or hurt you.

  [7] 对这种人你除了学会和其触摸无计可施,一起你也要学会择友,选择那些对你友善的,那些真实关怀你的,那些令你对自己感到很好的人做朋友。当你寻找到像这样的朋友,就一定要坚守这份友谊爱惜他们,花些时刻和他们在一起,友善的对待他们并爱他们。

  There's not much you can do about these people except to learn to deal with them, and learn to choose friends who are kind to you, who actually care about you, who make you feel good about yourself. When you find friends like this, hold on to them, treasure them, spend time with them, be kind to them, love them.

  [8] 有时你会遭受波折而非成功。日子并不总会如你所愿。这是另一件你需求学会处理的作业。但你要挺住向前,而不是让这些事让你堕入低谷。承受挫折并学会坚持,不畏危险地寻求你的愿望。学会把消沉转化为活跃,之后你就能做的好得多。

  There will be times when you are met with disappointment instead of success. Life won't always turn out the way you want. This is just another thing you'll have to learn to deal with. But instead of letting these things get you down, push on. Accept disappointment and learn to persevere, to pursue your dreams despite pitfalls. Learn to turn negatives into positives, and you'll do much better in life.

  [9] 你同样会面对心碎时刻以及你深爱的人的扔掉。我期望你无须阅历太多此类事情,但如果不幸发生了,再一次,除了渐渐愈合心中的伤口并继续下去你的日子,你别无选择。让这些苦楚成为你通向更夸姣日子的垫脚石,并学会使用它们让自己更坚强

  You will also face heartbreak and abandonment by those you love. I hope you don't have to face this too much, but it happens. Again, not much you can do but to heal, and to move on with your life. Let these pains become stepping stones to better things in life, and learn to use them to make you stronger.

但无论如何,都要打开双臂拥抱日子
But Be Open to life Anyway

  [10] 是的,在你的生命进程中你会遇到严酷,煎熬……但不要让这些让你回绝承受新鲜事物。不要躲避日子,不要躲藏,抑或封闭自己。拥抱新鲜事物,阅历全新体会,触摸新的人。

  Yes, you'll find cruelty and suffering in your journey through life … but don't let that close you to new things. Don't retreat from life, don't hide or wall yourself off. Be open to new things, new experiences, new people.

  [11] 你或许心碎了10次,可是在第十一次找到至爱。如果你把自己关在爱的门外,你就会错失这个女子,和你生命中最高兴的韶光。

  You might get your heart broken 10 times, but find the most wonderful woman the 11th time. If you shut yourself off from love, you'll miss out on that woman, and the happiest times of your life.

  [12] 你可能会被你遇到的人嘲笑欺压损伤…而在见了一打这种八怪七喇的人后,你会找到一个真实的朋友。如果你回绝触摸新人群,并不向他们打开心扉,你会防止受伤……可是一起也失去了知道这些难以想象的人的时机,他们会在你生命最困难的时刻陪伴着你,并带给你人生傍边最夸姣的韶光。

  You might get teased and bullied and hurt by people you meet … and then after meeting dozens of jerks, find a true friend. If you close yourself off to new people, and don't open your heart to them, you'll avoid pain … but also lose out on meeting some incredible people, who will be there during the toughest times of your life and create some of the best times of your life.

  [13] 你会失利多次可是如果你让失利打到了你,不再尽力,你就会错失那种当你达到成果新高度的难以言喻的成果感。失利是成功之母。

  You will fail many times but if you allow that to stop you from trying, you will miss out on the amazing feeling of success once you reach new heights with your accomplishments. Failure is a stepping stone to success.

生命不是一场比赛
Life Isn't a Competition

  [14] 你会遇到一些人他们总是企图超越你,在中学大学,在作业中。他们想要具有更好的车,更大的房子,更好的衣物,更酷的小玩意。对他们来说,生命就是一场比赛---他们不得不比同辈做得更好来让自己感到高兴。

  You will meet many people who will try to outdo you, in school, in college, at work. They'll try to have nicer cars, bigger houses, nicer clothes, cooler gadgets. To them, life is a competition — they have to do better than their peers to be happy.

  [15] 这里有一个诀窍:生命并不是一场比赛。而是一段旅程。如果你在途中一直都企图给他人留下深刻印象,超越他人,那你就糟蹋了这段旅程。与之相反,学会享用它,让之成为高兴之旅,永久的学习之旅,耐久的进步之旅以及爱之旅。

  Here's a secret: Life isn't a competition. It's a journey. If you spend that journey always trying to impress others, to outdo others, you’re wasting your journey. Instead, learn to enjoy the journey. Make it a journey of Happiness, of constant learning, of continual improvement, of love.

  [16] 不要为具有一辆更好的车或一所更好的房子或许任何物质的东西,即便是一份薪水更高的作业操心。这些底子无关宏旨,也不会使你高兴。你可能在具有了这些之后仅仅想要更多的。与之相反,学会满意你现已具有的---然后学会使用你本来想要糟蹋在为赚钱买这些东西的时刻去做你真实酷爱的事。

  Don't worry about having a nicer car or house or anything material, or even a better-paying job. None of that matters a whit, and none of it will make you happier. You'll acquire these things and then only want more. Instead, learn to be satisfied with having enough — and then use the time you would have wasted trying to earn money to buy those things … use that time doing things you love.

  [17] 找到你的热情,持之以恒地寻求它。别让自己被一个还账的的作业所累。生命太时间短了,更不可将之糟蹋在你所讨厌的作业上。

  Find your passion, and pursue it doggedly. Don't settle for a job that pays the bills. Life is too short to waste on a job you hate.

爱应该成为你的日子原则
Love Should Be Your Rule

  [18] 如果让一个词成为你的日子支撑的话,那它应该是爱。或许这听来已是陈词滥调,我也清楚… 可是请信任我,再没有更好的日子原则了。

  If there's a single word you should live your life by, it should be this: Love. It might sound corny, I know … but trust me, there's no better rule in life.

  [19] 一些人以成功作为日子原则。他们的日子会很严重,不开心而且很浅陋。

  Some would live by the rule of success. Their lives will be stressful, unhappy and shallow.

  [20] 另一些人的日子原则是个人利益---他们将个人需求置于他人需求之上。他们孤单终身,毕竟也不会高兴。

  Others would live by the rule of selfishness — putting their needs above those of others. They will live lonely lives, and will also be unhappy.

  [21] 还有一些人他们为正义而生---尽力展现其路途的正确性,并企图劝服任何一个不以正义为日子原则的人。他们关怀他人,却以一种消沉的方法,终究怀有寻找终身的正义而终,而正却是一个糟糕的伴侣。

  Still others will live by the rule of righteousness — trying to show the right path, and admonishing anyone who doesn't live by that path. They are concerned with others, but in a negative way, and in the end will only have their own righteousness to live with, and that's a horrible companion.

  [22] 用爱支撑你的生命。爱你的妻子,你的孩子,你的爸爸妈妈亲,你的朋友,一心一意地去爱。给与他们你所需求的,不要流露出任何残暴,不赞同,冷酷或许失望,只要爱。向他们打开魂灵。

  Live your life by the rule of love. Love your spouse, your children, your parents, your friends, with all of your heart. Give to them what they need, and show them not cruelty nor disapproval nor coldness nor disappointment, but only love. Open your soul to them.

  [23] 不仅仅爱你深爱的人,也要爱你的街坊...你的搭档…乃至陌生人…他们是你广义上的兄弟姐妹。给你遇到的任何一个人一个浅笑,一句善语。一个友爱的姿态,一只援助之手。

  Love not only your loved ones, but your neighbors … your coworkers … strangers … your brothers and sisters in humanity. Offer anyone you meet a smile, a kind word, a kind gesture, a helping hand.

  [24] 不仅仅爱街坊和陌生人…也要爱你的敌人。对你最严酷的人,对曾经对你不善的人…爱他。他是一个备受折磨的魂灵,最需求你的爱。

  Love not only neighbors and strangers … but your enemy. The person who is cruelest to you, who has been unkind to you … love him. He is a tortured soul, and most in need of your love.

  [25] 最重要的是爱你自己。当他人批判你时,学着不要强加自己,去以为自己丑,笨或许不值得去爱…而要想着自己是一个很完美的人,值得具有美好和真爱…并学会爱现在的自己。

  And most of all, love yourself. While others may criticize you, learn not to be so hard on yourself, to think that you’re ugly or dumb or unworthy of love … but to think instead that you are a wonderful human being, worthy of Happiness and love … and learn to love yourself for who you are.

  [26] 终究,要知道我爱你而且永久都会,你行将敞开一段有点古怪,令人害怕,令人心悸但终究很难以想象的巧妙旅程,我永久会支撑你。祝万事如意。

  Finally, know that I love you and always will. You are starting out on a weird, scary, daunting, but ultimately incredibly wonderful journey, and I will be there for you when I can. Godspeed.
