  爱只是一根线 Love Is Just a Thread

  Sometimes I really doubt whether there is love between my parents. Every day they are very busy trying to earn money in order to pay the high tuition for my brother and me. They don't act in the romantic ways that I read in books or I see on TV. In their opinion,“I love you”is too luxurious for them to say. Sending flowers to each other on Valentine's Day is even more out of the question. Finally my father has a bad temper. When he's very tired from the hard work, it is easy for him to lose his temper.

  有时候,我真的怀疑父母之间是否有真爱。他们天天忙于赚钱,为我和弟弟支付学费。他们从未像我在书中读到,或在电视中看到的那样互诉衷肠。他们认为“我爱你”太奢侈,很难说出口。更不用说在情人节送花这样的事了。我父亲的脾气非常坏。经过一天的劳累之后,他经常会发脾气。

  One day, my mother was sewing a quilt. I silently sat down beside her and looked at her.

  一天,母亲正在缝被子,我静静地坐在她旁边看着她。

  “Mom, I have a question to ask you,”I said after a while.

  过了一会,我说:“妈妈,我想问你一个问题。”

  “What?”she replied, still doing her work.

  “什么问题?”她一边继续缝着,一边回答道。

  “Is there love between you and Dad?”I asked her in a very low voice.

  我低声地问道:“你和爸爸之间有没有爱情啊?”

  My mother stopped her work and raised her head with surprise in her eyes. She didn't answer immediately. Then she bowed her head and continued to sew the quilt.

  母亲突然停下了手中的活,满眼诧异地抬起头。她没有立即作答。然后低下头,继续缝被子。

  I was very worried because I thought I had hurt her. I was in a great embarrassment and I didn't know what I should do. But at last I heard my mother say the following words:

  我担心伤害了她。我非常尴尬,不知道该怎么办。不过,后来我听见母亲说:

  “Susan,”she said thoughtfully,“Look at this thread. Sometimes it appears, but most of it disappears in the quilt. The thread really makes the quilt strong and durable. If life is a quilt, then love should be a thread. It can hardly be seen anywhere or anytime, but it's really there. Love is inside.”

  “苏珊,看看这些线。有时候,你能看得见,但是大多数都隐藏在被子里。这些线使被子坚固耐用。如果生活就像一床被子,那么爱就是其中的线。你不可能随时随地看到它,但是它却实实在在地存在着。爱是内在的。”

  I listened carefully but I couldn't understand her until the next spring. At that time, my father suddenly got sick seriously. My mother had to stay with him in the hospital for a month. When they returned from the hospital, they both looked very pale. It seemed both of them had had a serious illness.

  我仔细地听着,却无法明白她的话,直到来年的春天。那时候,我父亲得了重病。母亲在医院里待了一个月。当他们从医院回来的时候,都显得非常苍白。就像他们都得了一场重病一样。

  After they were back, every day in the morning and dusk, my mother helped my father walk slowly on the country road. My father had never been so gentle. It seemed they were the most harmonious couple. Along the country road, there were many beautiful flowers, green grass and trees. The sun gently glistened through the leaves. All of these made up the most beautiful picture in the world.

  他们回来之后,每天的清晨或黄昏,母亲都会搀扶着父亲在乡村的小路上漫步。父亲从未如此温和过。他们就像是天作之合。在小路旁边,有许多美丽的野花、绿草和树木。阳光穿过树叶的缝隙,温柔地照射在地面上。这一切形成了一幅世间最美好的画面。

  The doctor had said my father would recover in two months. But after two months he still couldn't walk by himself. All of us were worried about him.

  医生说父亲将在两个月后康复。但是两个月之后,他仍然无法独立行走。我们都很为他担心。

  “Dad, how are you feeling now?”I asked him one day.

  有一天,我问他:“爸爸,你感觉怎么样?”

  “Susan, don't worry about me.”he said gently.“To tell you the truth, I just like walking with your mom. I like this kind of life.”Reading his eyes, I know he loves my mother deeply.

  他温和地说:“苏珊,不用为我担心。跟你说吧,我喜欢与你妈妈一块散步的感觉。我喜欢这种生活。”从他的眼神里,我看得出他对母亲的爱之深刻。

  Once I thought love meant flowers, gifts and sweet kisses. But from this experience, I understand that love is just a thread in the quilt of our life. Love is inside, making life strong and warm..

  我曾经认为爱情就是鲜花、礼物和甜蜜的亲吻。但是从那一刻起,我明白了,爱情就像是生活中被子里的一根线。爱情就在里面,使生活变得坚固而温暖。

  充实你的思想

         Feed Your MindSince the pre-historic times, man has had an urge to satisfy his needs. Be it hunger, shelter or search for a mate, he has always manipulated the circumstances to the best of his advantages. Probably this might be the reason why we human are the most developed of all living species on the earth, and probably also in the universe. As we climbed the steps of evolution with giant leaps, we somehow left behind common sense and logical thinking — we forgot that we have stopped thinking ahead of times.

  自史前时代起,人类就已有满足自己需求的强烈欲望。无论是饥饿、避难或寻觅配偶,人类总是操纵着环境使其达到最利于自己的状态。这或许解答了为什么人类是地球上甚至是宇宙中最高级的现存物种。然而在进化的阶梯上取得巨大飞跃之时,我们却不知何故将一些常识和逻辑思维抛诸脑后了——我们忘记了自己已经停止了超前思维。

  If you are hungry, what do you do? Grab a piece of your favorite meal and stay quiet after that? Just like your stomach, even your mind is hungry. But it never lets you know, because you keep it busy thinking about your dream lover, favorite star and many such absurd things. So it silently began to heed to your needs and never let itself grow. When mind looses its freedom to grow, creativity gets a full stop. This might be the reason why we all sometimes think "What happens next?", "Why can't I think?", "Why am I always given the difficult problems?" Well this is the aftermath of our own karma of using our brain for thinking of not-so-worthy things.

  如果你饿了,你会怎么做?抓起你最喜爱的美食饱餐一顿,然后静静地呆在那里?而你的大脑也像你的胃,是会感到饥饿的,但它却从不让你知道,因为你让它一直想着你的梦中情人、你最喜爱的明星和许多诸如此类的荒唐事。因此它只是默默地留意着你的需要却从不让自己成长。当思维恣意成长时,创造力就嘎然而止。这也许就是为什么我们有时会想“下一步该如何”、“为什么我想不到?”、“为什么我总是碰到难题?”的原因吧。这也是我们的大脑总在考虑那些毫无价值的事情产生的后果。

  Hunger of the mind can be actually satiated through extensive reading. Now why reading and not watching TV? Because reading has been the most educative tool used by us right from the childhood. Just like that to develop other aspects of our life, we have to take help of reading. You have innumerable number of books in this world which will answer all your “How to?” questions. Once you read a book, you just don't run your eyes through the lines, but even your mind decodes it and explains it to you. The interesting part of the book is stored in your mind as a seed. Now this seed is unknowingly used by you in your future to develop new ideas. The same seed if used many times, can help you link and relate a lot of things, of which you would have never thought of in your wildest dreams! This is nothing but creativity. More the number of books you read, your mind will open up like never before. Also this improves your oratory skills to a large extent and also makes a significant contribution to your vocabulary. Within no time you start speaking English or any language fluently with your friends or other people and you never seem to run out of the right words at the right time.

  事实上,思维的饥荒可以通过广泛的阅读来满足。为什么是阅读而不是选择看电视呢?因为自孩提时代起,读书就已经是最具教育性的工具了。正如人生发展的其他方面一样,我们不得不求助于阅读。世界上有无数书籍可以回答你“如何做”的问题。读书时不仅要用眼睛浏览文字,还要用脑去解读、诠释。书中有趣的部分就会像种子一样贮存在你的脑海里。将来你会不自觉地运用这粒种子引发新的想法。多次运用这粒种子将有助于你把许多事情联系起来,即使你做梦都想不到这些!这不是别的,就是创造力!你读的书越多,你的心智就会前所未有地开阔。而且这还会大幅度地提高你的演讲能力、丰富你的词汇量。你很快就能用流利的英语或别的语言与你的朋友或别人交谈,而且你再也不会在适合的场合缺少适合的词语。

  Actually, I had a problem in speaking English fluently, but as I read, I could improve significantly. I am still on the path of improvement to quench my thirst for satisfaction. So guys do join me and give food for your thoughts by reading, reading and more reading. Now what are you waiting for? Go, grab a book, and let me know!

  实际上,我的英语还是不够流利,但只要我阅读,我就会取得显著进步。现在我仍在“自我提高”、为头脑“解渴”的长路上跋涉。请加入到我的行列吧!通过阅读、阅读、再阅读来为你的思想“喂食”。你还在等什么?现在就拿起一本书让我瞧瞧!

  完美的人生 The Wholeness of Life

  Once a circle missed a wedge. The circle wanted to be whole, so it went around looking for its missing piece. But because it was incomplete and therefore could roll only very slowly, it admired the flowers along the way. It chatted with worms. It enjoyed the sunshine. It found lots of different pieces, but none of them fit. So it left them all by the side of the road and kept on searching. Then one day the circle found a piece that fit perfectly. It was so happy. Now it could be whole, with nothing missing. It incorporated the missing piece into itself and began to roll. Now that it was a perfect circle, it could roll very fast, too fast to notice flowers or talk to the worms. When it realized how different the world seemed when it rolled so quickly, it stopped, left its found piece by the side of the road and rolled slowly away.

  从前有个圆圈,它丢失了一小段。它想变得完整,于是它到处寻找它所丢失的那部分。由于不完整,它只能滚的非常慢。在路上,它羡慕过花儿,它与虫子聊过天,它享受了阳光的照耀。它遇到过很多不同的小段,可是没有一个适合它。所以它把它们丢在路边,继续寻找。有一天,圆圈找到了可以与它完美结合的一小段,它非常高兴。它现在终于完整了,不缺任何东西了。它把丢失的那段装到自己身上,然后滚了起来。它现在是个完整的圆圈了,它可以滚的很快快到忽视了花儿,快到没有时间和虫子们说话。当它意识到由于它滚的太快,世界变得如此的不同时,它便停了下来,把找到的那段卸下丢在路边,慢慢地滚走了。

  There is a wholeness about the person who has come to terms with his limitations, who has been brave enough to let go of his unrealistic dreams and not feel like a failure for doing so. There is a wholeness about the man or woman who has learned that he or she is strong enough to go through a tragedy and survive, she can lose someone and still feel like a complete person.

  人生的完整性,在于接受自己的缺陷,勇敢地丢弃不切实际的幻想,并且不觉得这样做是失败的;人生的完整性,在于知道自己足够强大,可以承受人生的苦难,可以在失去一个人时仍然觉得自己是完整的。
