Dear son...
孩子…

The day that you see me old and I am already not, have patience and try to understand me …

经典英语美文:沙子与石头

​The story goes that two friends are walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they have an argument, and one friend slap the other one in the face.
话说两个好朋友正在穿越一个沙漠。途中他们忽然争吵了起来,其中一个一巴掌扇在另外一个人的脸上。

The one is hurt, but without saying anything, he writes in the sand: "Today my best friend slaps me in the face."
被扇的那个人受了伤害,但他一句话也没有说,只是在沙子上写道:“今天我最要好的朋友打了我一个耳光。”

They keep on walking until they find an oasis and they decide to take a bath. The one who has been slapped gets stuck(被卡在) in the mire and starts drowning, but the friend saves him.
他们继续走下去,后来发现了一片绿洲,他们于是决定洗个澡。先前被打的那个人这时不小心陷入了一个泥潭里面,差点被淹死了,幸运的是他的朋友把他给救了出来。

After he recovers from the near drowning, he writes on a stone: "Today my best friend saves my life."
他苏醒过来后,立刻在一块石头上写道:“今天我最要好的朋友救了我一命。”

His friend askes him, "After I hurt you, you write in the sand and now you write on a stone. Why?"
他的朋友于是问他说:“我打了你之后你在沙子上写字,而现在你却在石头上写,为什么呢?”

He replies: "When someone hurts us we should write it down in the sand, the winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in a stone,therefore,no wind can ever erase it."
写字的那个人回答说:“当我们被别人伤害了之后,我们应该把它写在沙子上,那样,宽容的风就很快就会将其抹去,但当我们受到别人的帮助之后,我们必须将它刻在石头上,那样,风就不会轻易把它磨灭。”

Learn to write your hurts in the sand and to carve your benefits on the stone.
学会将你所受到的伤害写在沙子上,把别人给你的帮助记在石头上。
《When you are old》

When You Are Old 当你老了

—— William Butler Yeats威廉·巴特勒·叶芝

When you are old and grey and full of sleep

当你老了,头发花白,睡意沉沉,

And nodding by the fire,take down this book

倦坐在炉边,取下这本书来,

And slowly read, and dream of the soft look

慢慢读着,追梦当年的眼神,

Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

你那柔美的神采与深幽的晕影。



How many loved your moments of glad grace

多少人爱过你昙花一现的身影,

And loved your beauty with love false or true

爱过你的美貌,以虚伪或真情,

But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you

惟独一人曾爱你那朝圣者的心,

And loved the sorrows of your changing face

爱你哀戚的脸上岁月的留痕。



And bending down beside the glowing bars,

在炉罩边低眉弯腰,

Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled

忧戚沉思,喃喃而语,

And paced upon the mountains overhead

爱情是怎样逝去,又怎样步上群山,

And hid his face amid a crowd of stars

怎样在繁星之间藏住了脸。

Ranpeki

Youth 青春

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.

Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.

Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing appetite for what’s next and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart, there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, courage and power from man and from the infinite, so long as you are young.

When your aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you’ve grown old, even at 20; but as long as your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism, there’s hope you may die young at 80.
 
 青春

青春不是年华,而是心境;青春不是桃面、丹唇、柔膝,而是深沉的意志,恢宏的想象,炙热的恋情;青春是生命的深泉在涌流。

青春气贯长虹,勇锐盖过怯弱,进取压倒苟安。如此锐气,二十后生而有之,六旬男子则更多见。年岁有加,并非垂老,理想丢弃,方堕暮年。

岁月悠悠,衰微只及肌肤;热忱抛却,颓废必致灵魂。忧烦,惶恐,丧失自信,定使心灵扭曲,意气如灰。

无论年届花甲,拟或二八芳龄,心中皆有生命之欢乐,奇迹之诱惑,孩童般天真久盛不衰。人人心中皆有一台天线,只要你从天上人间接受美好、希望、欢乐、勇气和力量的信号,你就青春永驻,风华常存。、

一旦天线下降,锐气便被冰雪覆盖,玩世不恭、自暴自弃油然而生,即使年方二十,实已垂垂老矣;然则只要树起天线,捕捉乐观信号,你就有望在八十高龄告别尘寰时仍觉年轻。
