第一篇: 第一篇:Youth 青春 Youth
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
3
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.
青年 青春不是生命的一段时光,它是一种精神状态;它不是红润的面颊,红色的嘴唇和 柔软的双膝;它是一种意愿、 最优的创造力和充满活力的情感;它是生命深泉的清 新。 青春是一种气质:勇猛果敢而不是怯懦退缩,渴望冒险而不是贪图安逸。 这往往存 在于一个60岁的老者比一个20岁的小伙儿。人老不仅仅是岁月流逝所致的年代。 年岁有加,并非垂老,理想。 岁月悠悠,衰微只及肌肤;热忱抛却,颓唐必至灵魂。担忧、恐惧、缺乏自信,会扭 曲人的灵魂,并将青春化为灰烬。 无论是60岁还是16岁,你需要保持永不衰竭的好奇心,永不熄灭的孩提奇迹之诱 惑和对未来的需求什么享受生活带来的乐趣。 在中心你的心中和我的心中都有一 个无线电台,它能在多长时间里接收到人间万物传递来的美好、希望、欢乐、勇 气和力量的电波永不消失,人,你就会年轻多长时间。 一旦天线倒塌,锐气便被冰雪覆盖,玩世不恭的霜雪和悲观厌世的冰层,那么你已 经老了,即使年方二十,实已垂垂老矣;然则只要竖起天线,捕捉乐观的信号,你就 有希望在80岁死去,也仍然年轻可以。

Three Days to See
All of us have read thrilling stories in which the hero had only a limited and specified time to live. Sometimes it was as long
4
as a year, sometimes as short as 24 hours. But always we were interested in discovering just how the doomed hero chose to spend his last days or his last hours. I speak, of course, of free men who have a choice, not condemned criminals whose sphere of activities is strictly delimited.
Such stories set us thinking, wondering what we should do under similar circumstances. What events, what experiences, what associations should we crowd into those last hours as mortal beings, what regrets?
Sometimes I have thought it would be an excellent rule to live each day as if we should die tomorrow. Such an attitude would emphasize sharply the values of life. We should live each day with gentleness, vigor and a keenness of appreciation which are often lost when time stretches before us in the constant panorama of more days and months and years to come. There are those, of course, who would adopt the Epicurean motto of “Eat, drink, and be merry”. But most people would be chastened by the certainty of impending death.
In stories the doomed hero is usually saved at the last minute
5
by some stroke of fortune, but almost always his sense of values is changed. He becomes more appreciative of the meaning of life and its permanent spiritual values. It has often been noted that those who live, or have lived, in the shadow of death bring a mellow sweetness to everything they do.
Most of us, however, take life for granted. We know that one day we must die, but usually we picture that day as far in the future. When we are in buoyant health, death is all but unimaginable. We seldom think of it. The days stretch out in an endless vista. So we go about our petty tasks, hardly aware of our listless attitude toward life.
The same lethargy, I am afraid, characterizes the use of all our faculties and senses. Only the deaf appreciate hearing, only the blind realize the manifold blessings that lie in sight. Particularly does this observation apply to those who have lost sight and hearing in adult life. But those who have never suffered impairment of sight or hearing seldom make the fullest use of these blessed faculties. Their eyes and ears take in all sights and sounds hazily, without concentration and with little appreciation. It is the same old story of not being grateful
6
for what we have until we lose it, of not being conscious of health until we are ill.
I have often thought it would be a blessing if each human being were stricken blind and deaf for a few days at some time during his early adult life. Darkness would make him more appreciative of sight; silence would teach him the joys of sound.
给我三天 我们大家都读过一些令人激动的故事,这些故事里的主人公仅仅在有限并且特定 的时间内去生活。有时长达一年,有时短到24小时。但我们总是有兴趣发现注定 要死的主人公是如何选择花点了他最后的日子里,或他的最后几个小时的状态。 当然,我所说的,是那些有选择自由的人,而不是判了刑的犯人的活动范围被严格 限定。 这样的故事激发我们去思考,思考我们在类似的情况下应该做的。 什么事件,什么 经历,什么交往的人,我们应该在那临终前的几个小时,什么遗憾? 有时我认为那将是个很好的规则在我们每天的生活中如果我们将在明天死。 这样 的态度可以鲜明地强调生命的价值。每一天我们都应该以和善的态度、充沛的精 力和热情的欣赏恰恰是在来日方长时往往被我们不变的全景图时天,几个月和几 年来。当然,有那么一些人,他们采纳了享乐主义的格言:“吃、喝、玩、乐”。 但是他们当中的大部分会在须臾即将面临死亡的必然性所折磨。 在故事里,注定要死的主人公往往保存在最后一刻由某种命运的突变,但几乎总 是他的价值观被改变了。他更加珍视生命的意义及其永恒而神圣的价值。人们已 注意到,那些生活在或者曾经生活在死亡阴影下的人,都带着成熟的甜蜜去做。 但是,我们大多数人把生活认为是理所当然的。我们知道,某一天我们一定会死, 但通常我们把那天想象在遥远的将来。当我们心宽体健时,死亡几乎是不可想象 的。我们很少想到它。时日在无穷的展望中延展着。于是我们干着琐碎的事情, 几乎意识不到我们对生活的倦怠态度。 同样的昏睡,我怕,描述了利用我们所有的本能和感觉。 只有聋者才知道听觉的重 要,只有t
