我的房子中英双文

My house is perfect. By great good fortune I have found a housekeeper no less to my mind, a low-voiced, light-footed woman of discreet age, strong and deft enough to render me all the service I require, and not afraid of loneliness. She rises very early. By my breakfast-time there remains little to be done under the roof save dressing of meals. Very rarely do I hear even a clink of crockery; never the closing of a door or window. Oh, blessed silence! My house is perfect. Just large enough to allow the grace of order in domestic circumstance; just that superfluity of inner space, to lack which is to be less than at one's ease. The fabric is sound; the work in wood and plaster tells of a more leisurely and a more honest age than ours. The stairs do not creak under my step; I am attacked by no unkindly draught; I can open or close a window without muscle-ache. As to such trifles as the color and device of wall-paper, I confess my indifference; be the walls only plain, and I am satisfied. The first thing in one's home is comfort; let beauty of detail be added if one has the means, the patience, the eye. To me, this little book-room is beautiful, and chiefly because it is home. Through the greater part of life I was homeless. Many places have I lived, some which my soul disliked, and some which pleased me well; but never till now with that sense of security which makes a home. At any moment I might have been driven forth by evil accident, by disturbing necessity. For all that time did I say within myself: Some day, perchance, I shall have a home; yet the "perchance" had more and more of emphasis as life went on, and at the moment when fate was secretly smiling on me, I had all but abandoned hope. I have my home at last. This house is mine on a lease of a score of years. So long I certainly shall not live; but, if I did, even so long should I have the money to pay my rent and buy my food. I am no cosmopolite. Were I to think that I should die away from England, the thought would be dreadful to me. And in England, this is the place of my choice; this is my home.
我的房子很完美。幸运的是,在我的心目中,我找到了一个毫不动摇的女管家,一个肤色低沉、脚步轻盈的女人,年纪轻轻,强壮有力,能给我所需的一切服务,不怕孤独。她起得很早。到我吃早饭的时候,除了做饭外,屋顶下几乎没什么事可干了。我很少听到一声甚至陶器;永不关门窗。哦,祝福的沉默!我的房子很完美。只是大到足以让国内环境优美的;只是多余的内部空间,缺乏的是小于自由自在。织物很好,用木头和灰泥做的工作比我们的更悠闲、更诚实。楼梯不会在我的脚下吱吱作响;我没有穿堂风的袭击;我可以打开或关闭一个窗口没有肌肉酸痛。至于墙纸的颜色和装置之类的小事,我承认我的冷漠;墙壁只是朴素的,我很满意。家中的第一件事是舒适;如果有办法、有耐心、有眼光,就要增添细节之美。对我来说,这个小书室很漂亮,主要是因为它是家。在生活的大部分时间里,我无家可归。我住过许多地方,有些地方是我的灵魂所不喜欢的,有些地方让我很满意,但直到现在,我才有了家的安全感。在任何时候,我都可能被邪恶的意外、扰乱的必要所驱使。那段时间,我是说在自己的某一天,或许,我有一个家;但“偶然”已经越来越重视生活了,这时命运偷偷对我笑的时候,我已经完全放弃了希望。我终于有了家。这房子是我租来的,租期是几年。这么久我肯定不会活下去,但如果我这样做了,即使我有足够的钱付房租和买我的食物。我不属于世界。如果我认为我应该离开英国,这个想法对我来说将是可怕的。在英国,这是我选择的地方,这是我的家。
