 【英语故事】                    宝贵的双手

   来源:网络  

            

                                                A Pair of Precious Hands

 

        There was once a sheperd who had a duaghter whose great beauty attracted a lot of 

young men from all over the country.

   

        从前,有个牧羊人,他有一个非常漂亮的女儿,她的美貌吸引了全国各地的许多小伙子。

 

       One day, the shepherd asked his duaghter, “My dear dayghter, tell me, what kind of man 

do you want to be your husband?” His daughter said, “My dear father, my future husband can 

be poor but also a wealthy man.” “How could that be? Poor and rich are two opposite things!” 

said her father. “Dear father, a poor person also has his wealth,” said his daughter. The 

shepherd then announced that his daughter was ready for marriage.

 

       有一天,牧羊人问女儿:“亲爱的孩子,告诉我,你想要什么样的人做你的丈夫?”女儿回

说:“亲爱的父亲,我未来的丈夫可以是个穷人,但必须是个富有的人。”“这怎么可能呢?

穷和富有是相对的啊!” 牧羊人说。女儿说,“亲爱的父亲,穷人也有他自己的财富。”

之后,牧羊人向外宣布了女儿要结婚姻的消息。

 

        One day, there were many eligible men gather outside the shepherd’s home. He came 

out and said, “All right, gentlemen, those who think they are eligible, please come forward and 

tell me your qualifications!”  A few well-dressed gentlemen came forward, followed by their 

servants and camel loads of gifts carried by camels. “We are rich men; we have gold and 

silver mines, silk, fur and red carpets. Please choose one of us.” The shepherd’s daughter 

just smiled. Then came five yong men with some jewelry boxes. “These golden boxes contain 

rare jewelry. You will be the most wealthy person if you choose one of us to be your husband.” 

 “All of you are not my idea of an ideal husband,” said the disappointed lady.

 

       一天,许多适婚年龄的求婚男子云集在牧羊人的房子外面。牧羊人走出帐篷,对大家说,

“好呀,小伙子们,认为自己有资格来求婚的,请上前说说自己的条件吧!” 几个衣着华丽的

走上前来,他们的仆人牵着满载礼品的骆驼跟在后面。“我们都是有钱人。我们拥有金

山、山、絲绸、皮毛和红毯。请从我们当中选一个吧。” 牧羊人的女儿只是报以微笑。接着,

个手捧珠宝盒的小伙子走上前来。“这些金盒子里装满了稀世珍宝。如果你选择我们其中之

作为你的丈夫,你将成为最富有的人。”“你们都不是我心目中理想的丈夫。” 牧羊人的女儿

很失望地说。

 

         One by one young men came forward but they were rejected by her. The shep0herd 

began to worry. Suddenly, a plainly dressed young man appeared. The shepherd asked, 

“Young man, you look so poor. What can you offrer my daughter?” “My wealth is always with 

me and it is my hands,” the young man said,” I am a good tailor. I am also a good carpenter. 

I can make tables and chairs within an hour. Moreover, I can also put up a tent afor you all!” 

The lady smiled. The young man continued, “  I can cook too. I can cook delicious meals. 

However, I do not have any property, servants or jewelry. But, with my pair of hands, I do have 

a whole life of wealth!”  “That’s great!” shouted the shepherd’s daughter excitedly.  “You are 

more wealthy than nay of them because you have a pair of precious hands. You are my idea 

of an ideal husband. A pair of hardworking hands can create much wealth.”

 

       小伙子一个个走上前来向牧羊人的女儿求婚,但都被她婉言拒绝了。牧羊人开始着急起来。

突然,有个衣着朴素的青年出现在他面前。牧羊人问道:“年轻人,你看上去很穷。你有什么宝

物可献给我女儿的?“我的财富一向随身携带,它就是我的双手。” 青年回答说,“我是一个

艺精湛的裁缝师;我还是一个熟练的木匠。我能在一个小时内给你们制一套桌椅;而且,

给你们所有人搭一个帐篷。”  牧羊人的女儿笑了。青年继续说,“我还会烹饪,我能做出最美

味的饭菜。是,我没什么财产,也没有仆人,更没有什么金银珠宝。但我有一双手,有

双手,我就拥了一生用之不尽的财富!”“太好了!” 牧羊人的女儿激动地高声喊道,“你比他们

中任何人有,因为你有一宝贵的手,你正是我心目中的理想这丈夫! 一双勤劳的双手能创

造无穷的富。”
