Just for today 就为了今天
Just for today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime. Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said,that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be." Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes. Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration. Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways. I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out: If anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two things I don't want to do?just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt: they may be hurt, but today I will not show it. Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit,and try not to improve or regulate anybody but myself. Just for today I will have a program, I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision. Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life. Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful,and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me. 就为了今天, 我将尽力只度过今天而不立刻去解决终身的问题。 对一件令我沮丧而又必 须坚持一辈子的事,我只能坚持十二个小时。 就为了今天,我会很快乐。亚伯拉罕-林肯说过,“大多数人都是决定想怎么高兴就怎 么高兴。”这已经被认为是真理。 就为了今天, 我会做自我调整适应事物本来的面目, 而不是想方设法使每一件事满足自 己的欲望。当机会来临的时候我会抓住它。 就为了今天,我会尽力心强志坚。我会学习,学一些有用的东西。我不会做一个精神上 的流浪汉。我会读一些需要努力、思考和注意力集中的东西。
就为了今天,我会用三种方法来磨炼我的灵魂。我会做对某人有利的事但不能被发现, 若有人发现了就不算数。 我将会做至少两件我不愿做的事情??只为了磨练。 我不会让任何 人感到我的感情受到了伤害:它们可能受到了伤害,但今天我不想表现出来。 就为了今天,我会过得很惬意。看起来我达到了最佳状态,穿着得体、讲话谦虚、行为 礼貌、一点不吹毛求疵,尽量改进和调节自己而不是别人。 就为了今天,我会制定一个计划,我也许不会严格地遵守它,但我一定要有计划。我会 避免两种错误:仓促行事和优柔寡断。 就为了今天,我将会独自静静地呆上半小时放松。在这半小时里,某个时刻,我会日后 对我的生活有个更好的看法。 就为了今天,我将不再害怕。尤其我不会再害怕享受美丽的事物,并且相信我给予世界 的,世界也会给予我。
A Morning Wish 在清晨许个愿
The sun is just rising in the morning of another day. What can I wish that this day may bring me? Nothing that shall make the world or others poorer, nothing at the expense of other men; but just those few things which in their coming do not stop me but touch me rather, as they pass and gather strength. I wish that this day could bring me a few friends, who understand me, and yet remain my friends; I also wish that this day could bring me a work to do which has real value. I wish that this day could bring me a mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed, and I wish that this day could bring me an understanding heart. I wish that this day could bring me a sight of the eternal hills, and the blue sea stretching to the horizon, and of something beautiful which the hands of men have made. I wish that this day could bring me a sense of humor, and the power to laugh, a little leisure with nothing to do. And I crave for a few moments of quiet, silent meditation in the morning of this day. You’re listening to Faith Radio Online-Simply to Relax, I’m Faith. I also wish that this day could bring me the patience to wait for the coming of these things,
with the wisdom to know them when they come, and the wit not to change this morning wish of mine.
英语名篇名段背诵精华 Best of times
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way. Excerpt from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens 这是一个最好的时代,也是一个最坏的时代;这是明智的年代,这是愚昧的年代;这是 信任的纪元,这是怀疑的纪元;这是光明的季节,这是黑暗的季节;这是希望的春日,这是 失望的冬日;我们面前应有尽有,我们面前一无所有;我们都将直下地狱……
Turtle Gets the Last Laugh 乌龟终于笑了
Once upon a time in the forest, there was a very bad drought. And all the animals were dying because of a big famine. So the lion king gathered all the animals together to find a solution, to save the lives of his subjects. And then some animals suggested that since the time was very bad and the situation was so grave, they would have to eat each other to survive. But they also didn't want to eat each other so much, so they made a competition. Every one of them had to tell a joke.The joke had to be very funny, and everyone had to laugh.If it happened to be not funny enough so that even one of the animals in the assembly didn't laugh, then that animal had to be eaten. They had to eat each other to survive, because there was no food.So the elephant came out and told a joke. And it was very funny! Everyone was rolling on the floor, laughing until they had stomach pains. But just one animal didn't laugh: the turtle. Ah! So everyone felt sorry, because the joke was really funny. But rules are rules. The turtle didn't laugh, so they went ahead and ate the elephant. And then they continued with another animal, the giraffe. He also told a very funny joke. Everyone laughed except the turtle; the turtle didn't laugh. Okay, rules are rules. So they ate the giraffe. And so on, and so on. After a while, almost all the animals had been eaten. Only a few were left when it came to the turn of the monkey to tell a joke, and he was very scared. He was nervous; he was trembling. He looked at the turtle and dared not open his mouth. But suddenly the turtle started laughing. "Ha ha ha ha! Ah ha ha ha! Ah ha ha! That was funny! The joke the elephant told was so funny!" 有一次森林里发生很严重的干旱, 所有动物都因为大饥荒而濒临死亡, 狮子王为了拯救
它子民的生命,就集合所有动物一起商量对策。有些动物建议,因为事态严重,唯有互相吃 才能存活, 但大家又不想有太多动物牺牲, 所以就办了一场比赛, 每个动物都要讲一个笑话, 这个笑话必须很有趣,让每个动物都笑,而如果有笑话不有趣,即使只有一个动物不笑,那 个讲笑话的动物就要被吃掉。因为没有食物,它们必须互相吃才能存活。大象就上来讲了一 个笑话,非常有趣,大家都笑到肚子痛而在地上打滚,但只有一个动物不笑,那就是乌龟。 啊!大家都很难过,因为那个笑话真的很有趣,但因为乌龟没笑,所以必须遵守规定,结果 大家就吃了大象。接着是长颈鹿,它也讲了个很有趣的笑话,大家都开怀大笑,但就只有乌 龟还是不笑,但必须遵守规定,所以大家又吃了长颈鹿。然后比赛就这样继续下去,过了一 会儿,几乎所有动物都被吃掉了,只有少数还活着,这时轮到猴子讲笑话,它害怕紧张的发 抖,猴子看着乌龟,而不敢开口,突然间乌龟笑了: 「哈!哈!哈!啊!哈!哈!太好笑了! 大象讲的笑话太好笑了! 」
