理想每个人都有,成功每个人都要
I have heard the story of such a religion.
  Once upon a time, there is a Health and leprosy patients, the disease nearly 40 years, has been lying on the roadside, he said, referring to such people to have the magic of the pool edge. But he lay there nearly 40 years. Still not to the pool half goal.
  One day, God met him and asked: "Sir, you have to not be healing, the lifting of the disease?"
  Leprosy patients that said: "Of course! Sinister but good people, they are after nothing but themselves, will not help me."
  Hearing God, again, he said: "Would you like to be the treatment?"
  "We should, of course, to you! But waiting for me to climb over the past, the water dried up."
  God listened to the leprosy patients, then after a little angry, ask him once: "You should not be healing in the end?"
  He said: "To!"
  God replied: "Well, you now stand up on their side to come to the pool, do not always find some reason can not be completed for their own defense."
(来源:英语e问e答 http://ask.englishcn.com)
  Upon hearing this, and that leprosy patients are deeply ashamed and immediately stood up and went to the water edge, containing the heart of God with his hands a few water to drink. Twinkling of an eye, his struggle for nearly 40 years of leprosy even better!
? Revelation
  Everyone has an ideal, the success of everyone. However, if you have not yet reached the ideal, the success of far-fetched, you have asked themselves: I pay for their own ideals and how much effort? I was not always find an excuse for a lot of failure for their own sophistry? In fact, We should not make excuses for failure, we should find a method for success. As long as the efforts to development, the fate will always follow you.
  ?启示
  理想每个人都有,成功每个人都要。但如果今天您的理想尚未达到,成功遥不可及,您是否曾经问过自己:我为自己的理想付出了多少努力?我是不是经常找一大堆借口来为自己的失败而狡辩?其实,我们不要为失败找借口,应该为成功找方法。只要努力去开发,命运将永远跟着你。
The Color of Love
爱到最高点,心中无国界 (来源:英语论坛 http://bbs.englishcn.com)
Although people of different ethnicities have been mixing for centuries, the subject of interracial relationships is still controversial. Even now, mixed couples face many obstacles, including laws restricting interracial marriage. (来源:英语分类信息 http://fl.englishcn.com)
It was only in 1967 that the United States finally struck down its anti miscegenation laws. Opposition to interracial relationships exists for different reasons, but what it usually boils down to is racism. (来源:英语麦当劳www.EnglishCN.com)
As the world is becoming smaller, the number of interracial couples is growing, especially in countries with large numbers of immigrants. For interracial couples, love knows no color. Cultural differences are just another area of the relationship to work through.
But as interracial dating becomes more common, it does not treat all ethnic groups equally. In the United States, the vast majority of white/black couples involve a black man and a white woman. Conversely, the same number of Asian/white couples consists of an Asian woman with a white man. The proposed reason for this is that traditionally, women prefer men who are stronger and seem more masculine than they are. For men, the opposite is true. (来源:英语学习门户网站EnglishCN.com)
Consequently, this leaves some groups out in the cold. But in the future, a greater mixing of ethnicities and erosion4 of gender stereotypes may balance out these dating patterns as people gain a more genuine appreciation of one another's differences. 英语散文-微笑 The smile
尽管不同种族的人们已经通婚好几个世纪了,然而不同种族之间的关系仍然是一个引起争议的话题。即使是现在,异族男女之间的婚姻仍然面临着重重阻碍,包括限制异族通婚的法律。
直到1967年,美国才废除了反种族通婚的法律。反对异族联姻有不同的理由,但通常可以归结为种族歧视的原因。 (来源:英语交友 http://friends.englishcn.com)
世界变得愈小,异族婚姻的数量随之增多,尤其是移民众多的国家。对于异族婚配的伴侣而言,爱是没有肤色之分的。文化差异不过是这种关系所要解决的另一方面的问题。 (来源:英语麦当劳-英语快餐EnglishCN.com)
然而,尽管不同种族男女之间的约会变得越来越普遍,不同种族群之间的约会机会却并不均等。在美国,绝大多数的黑/白不同肤色的配偶都是黑人男子和白人女子。相反地,同样数量的亚裔?白人夫妇则是由亚裔女子和白人男子组成。出现这种现象的原因是因为传统上女人偏爱比自己强壮且外表比较阳刚的男人。而男人的喜好则相反。 (来源:英语电影下载 http://bt.englishcn.com)
这样一来,某些种族群便遭到了冷落。但在将来,随着人们更能真正欣赏彼此间的差异,更大规模的种族通婚和对社会性别的固定成见的消除或许能使以上的约会模式变得平衡。
曾经听过这么一个宗教故事。
  从前,有个生麻疯病的病人,病了近40年,一直躺在路旁,等人把他指到有神奇力量的水池边。但是他躺在那儿近40年。仍然没有往水池目标迈进半步。
  有一天,天神碰见了他,问道:“先生,你要不要被医治,解除病魔?”
  那麻疯病人说:“当然要!可是人心好险恶,他们只顾自己,绝不会帮我。”
  天神听后,再问他说:“你要不要被医治?”
  “要,当然要啦!但是等我爬过去时,水都干涸。”
  天神听了那麻疯病人的话后,有点生气,再问他一次:“你到底要不要被医治?”
  他说:“要!”
  天神回答说:“好,那你现在就站起来自己走到那水池边去,不要老是找一些不能完成的理由为自己辩解。”
  听后,那麻疯病人深感羞愧,立即站起身来,走向池水边去,用手心盛着神水喝了几口。刹那间,他那纠缠了近40年的麻疯病竟然好了!
英语散文-微笑 The smile
The smile
  I was sure that I was to be killed. I became terribly nervous. I fumbled [1]in my pockets to see if there were any cigarettes, which had escaped [2]their search. I found one and because of my shaking hands, I could barely get it to my lips. But I had no matches, they had taken those.I looked through the bars at my jailer. He did not make eye contact with me. I called out to him:"Have you got a light?" He looked at me, shrugged [3]and came over to light my cigarette. As he came close and lit the match, his eyes inadvertently locked with mine. At that moment, I smiled. I don't know why I did that. Perhaps it was nervousness, perhaps it was because, when you get very close, one to another, it is very hard not to smile. In any case, I smiled. In that instant, it was as though a spark jumped across the gap between our two hearts, our two human souls. I know he didn't want to, but my smile leaped through the bars and generated a smile on his lips, too. He lit my cigarette but stayed near, looking at me directly in the eyes and continuing to smile. (来源:英语麦当劳-英语学习门户 EnglishCN.com)
   I kept smiling at him, now aware of him as a person and not just a jailer. And his looking at me seemed to have a new dimension[4] too. "Do you have kids?" he asked. "Yes, here, here." I took out my wallet and nervously fumbled for the pictures of my family. He, too, took out the pictures of his family and began to talk about his plans and hopes for them. My eyes filled with tears. I said that I feared that I'd never see my family again, never have the chance to see them grow up. Tears came to his eyes, too. "Suddenly, without another word, he unlocked my cell and silently led me out. Out of the jail, quietly and by back routes, out of the town. There, at the edge of town, he released me. And without another word, he turned back toward the town. (来源:专业英语学习网站 http://www.EnglishCN.com)
   "My life was saved by a smile." Yes, the smile--the unaffected, unplanned, natural connection between people.. I really believe that if that part of you and that part of me could recognize each other, we wouldn't be enemies. We couldn't have hate or envy or fear. (来源:英语美食指南 http://food.englishcn.com)
  微 笑 (来源:英语美食指南 http://food.englishcn.com)
  一想到自己明天就没命了,不禁陷入极端的惶恐。我翻遍了口袋,终于找到一支没被他们搜走的香烟,但我的手紧张得不停发抖,连将烟送进嘴里都成问题,而我的火柴也在搜身时被拿走了。“我透过铁栏望着外面的警卫,他并没有注意到我在看他,我叫了他一声:“能跟你借个火吗?”他转头望着我,耸了耸肩,然后走了过来,点燃我的香烟。当他帮我点火时,他的眼光无意中与我的相接触,这时我突然冲着他微笑。我不知道自己为何有这般反应,也许是过于紧张,或者是当你如此靠近另一个人,你很难不对他微笑。不管是何理由,我对他笑了。就在这一刹那,这抹微笑如同火花般,打破了我们心灵间的隔阂。受到了我的感染,他的嘴角不自觉地也现出了笑容,虽然我知道他原无此意。他点完火后并没立刻离开,两眼盯着我瞧,脸上仍带着微笑。 (来源:英语图片 http://photo.englishcn.com)
  我也以笑容回应,仿佛他是个朋友,而不是个守着我的警卫。他看着我的眼神也少了当初的那股凶气,“你有小孩吗?”他开口问道。“有,你看。”我拿出了皮夹,手忙脚乱地翻出了我的全家福照片。他也掏出了照片,并且开始讲述他对家人的期望与计划。这时我眼中充满了泪水,我说我害怕再也见不到家人。我害怕没机会看着孩子长大。他听了也流下两行眼泪。突然间,他二话不说地打开了牢门,悄悄地带我从后面的小路逃离了监狱,出了小镇,就在小镇的边上,他放了我,之后便转身往回走,不曾留下一句话。

  “一个微笑居然能救自己一条命。”是的,微笑是人与人之间最自然真挚的沟通方式。如果我们能用心灵去认识彼此,世间不会有结怨成仇的憾事;恨意、妒嫉、恐惧也会不复存在。 (来源:英语交友 http://friends.englishcn.com)

  《微笑》是法国作家安东尼?圣艾修伯里的作品,圣艾修伯里是名飞行员,二次大战对抗纳粹时被击落身亡,之前他也曾参加西班牙内战打击法西斯分子。他根据这次经验写了一篇精彩的故事――《微笑》。他的代表作《小王子》是美国人都很熟悉的童话故事。

(来源:英语问答中心 http://ask.englishcn.com)
  
  1. fumble:我们总是能看到爱抽烟的男人在自己的身上到处摸烟的镜头,用动词fumble(乱摸、摸索)来形容他们的动作是再恰当不过了;下文中提到的nervously fumbled for the pictures也是借用fumble来形容“主人公非常紧张地在钱包搜索照片”的情景;现在如果你看到某人在“哗啦啦”地翻书寻找他想要的内容,你就可以大胆地用fumle来描述他的动作,可以说He fumbled the pages looking for the place.
(来源:英语电影下载 http://bt.englishcn.com)
  
  2. escape是个很调皮的词汇,总是“逃离这儿,逃离那儿”, 此处的escaped their search字面上就表示出“(烟)逃离了他们的搜查”,也就是“没有被他们搜走(的烟)”; 再看看I'm afraid your name escapes me. 看起来是“你的名字逃离了我”,也就是“我恐怕想不起你的名字了”。如果你是位老师,在课堂可能就会很严肃地对那些捣蛋的学生说上一句:Nothing escaped my attention.(什么都逃不过我的注意),这下,那些学生该乖乖地听课了吧。
(来源:英语麦当劳-英语学习门户 EnglishCN.com)
  
  3. shrug表示的动作是“耸耸肩”,比如你把一个消息告诉给自己的好友时,“她听到消息后只是耸耸肩”,你就可以描绘成She shrugged her shoulders at the news. 因为我们也经常用“耸肩”的动作来表示“不感兴趣“或“无所谓”等心态,所以shrug可以引申地表示“冷漠、无所谓、不屑一顾”等意思。比如说在法庭上,法官已经对某个贪污犯进行了判决,但是此人仍然暴跳如雷地表示抗议,那么People only shruggled at his protests.看来“人们对他的抗议只是轻蔑地耸耸肩而已了”。

  4. dimension:如果你已经知
