                     就为今天 Just for Today

                                                                                      佳中

 

    

 

 

                                     最近读了《英语名篇诵读菁华》中的一篇诗词般的短文,

                            题目是“Just for Today (就为了今天)”。这篇文章哲理性

                            强,文字精湛,警语佳句,堪称美文。 特载录于此,供英语

                            爱好者分享。 原文没有译文,我翻译了一下,不当之处,敬

                            请指教。

                                                                  Just for today

 

         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.

 

        为了今天,我将尽力过好这一天,不会急着去解决需要用一生才能解决问题。做一件事我能

续十二小时去做,如果要我一辈子去做这件事,我会胆寒。

 

        Just for today I will be happy. What Abraham Lincoln said is ture: “Most folks are as happy as

they make up their minds to be.”

 

       为了今天,我会很快乐。亚伯拉罕·林肯曾经说过:“大多数人都是心里想怎么快乐就去怎么

快乐。” 这句话千真万确。

 

        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.

 

        为了今天,我会调整自己去适应一切事物,而不是竭力让每一件事来满足我自己的欲望。如

果机会来临,我会好好把握。

   

        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.

   

        为了今天,我会尽力提高自己的心智。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。

  

        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.

 

        为了今天,我会用三种方法来锤炼自己的灵魂。我会做有益于他人的事而不为人知,若有人

道就失去意义。我将至少去做两件我不愿做的事情  ——  只是为了磨练自己。我不会让任何人

觉到我的感情受到了伤害:我的感情可能受伤,但今天我不想流露出来。

 

 

        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.

 

        为了今天,我会过得很惬意,让人看上去我的状态极佳,穿着得体、讲话谦虚、行为礼貌、

事谦让。我会尽量改进和调节自己而不是别人。

 

       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.

       

        为了今天,我会制定一个计划,也许我不会严格履行,但我一定要计划行事。我会努力克服

个缺点:行事匆忙和优柔寡断。

 

       

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.

 

        为了今天,我会独自安静半小时,放松自己。在这半小时里,或者某个时刻,我会幢景我日

后更加美好的生活。

 

         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.

 

        为了今天,我将不再害怕,尤其我会毫无顾忌地去享受美好的事物,我相信我给世界付出多

少,世界也会回报我多少。
