《書》(雙語)

[复制链接]
发表于 3/29/2016 07:44:43 | 显示全部楼层 |阅读模式
我游泳在書籍的海洋裡﹐浸泡在知識的水珠間。我在學問的波濤上載沉載浮﹐在古籍的深淵裡潛進潛出﹐竊取那典墳秘學。書是智慧的源泉﹐寂寞的慰藉﹐是無聊時的伴侶﹐煩悶時的消遣。

古人曰﹕“書中自有黃金屋﹐書中自有顏如玉。”可惜十年寒窗﹐仍是一介窮生。王朝已滅﹐功名不再。如玉可期﹐聊以自慰。憶古人苦讀﹐春夜鑿壁﹐夏夜囊螢﹐秋夜照月﹐冬夜映雪。至于懸樑椎股﹐枕木書沙﹐始成一代名人。

“書到用時方恨少”。平時勤讀﹐用時有餘。“讀書千遍﹐其義自明”﹐“讀書破萬卷﹐下筆如有神”﹐乃古人之至理名言。且他山之石﹐可以攻玉。他人之書﹐可為我鑒。讀書﹐小者可陶冶情操﹐修身養性﹐大者可齊家治國﹐以平天下。

“書有未曾經我讀”。書海浩瀚﹐畢生難窮。故莊子曰﹕“吾生而有涯﹐吾學而無涯。以有涯度無涯﹐殆矣。”然而明知學如煙海﹐豈能望而卻步。在世一日﹐求知一日。“朝聞道﹐夕死可矣。”

Books

I swim in the ocean of books and soak among the water drops of knowledge. I float on the waves of learning and dive in the abyss of ancient publications, to steal the precious editions and mystic erudition. Books are the source of wisdom, solace in solitude, companion in boredom, and pastime in idleness.

The ancients said, “There are houses of gold in books. There are beauties like jade in books.” What is the pity is that I am still a poor scholar after ten years of studies under the cold window. Dynasties are all gone and no tests for officialdom can be taken. But a beauty like jade can be expected for my self-consolation. I recall the ancients in arduous reading, like the one chiseling through the wall in the spring night, the one putting fireflies in a thin silk purse in the summer night, the one sitting in the moonlight in the autumn night, and the one using the reflection of light from snow in the winter night. As to the one with long hair tied to a string hanging from the beam, the one pricking his thigh with an awl, the one pillowing on a log, and the one using sands as paper, they became men of renown through hardship.

“When in use, you'll regret that books being read are too few.” If reading all the time, when in use, you'll feel books being read are more than you need. “Read a book for thousand times, the meaning will be as clear as day.” “Read through ten thousand volumes, when writing, it's like with a magic pen.” These are the maxims of the ancients. Moreover, a stone on the other hill can be made to be my jade. Books of other people can be borrowed for my use. Book reading, in a personal sense, can nurture one into calm disposition and good virtue, and in a larger sense, can  make one's family harmonious and the country be run well, and bring peace to people under heaven.

“There are still books I haven't read.” As the sea of books is so vast, no one in his life can explore it to the end. Therefore, Zhuangzi said, “My life has an end, but my learning without end. It's impossible to use my limited life for the endless learning.” However, how can I halt at the view, clearly knowing the field of learning is like a vast smoky sea? When I live for a day, I must learn on the day. “If learned the truth in the morning, it's all right to die in the evening.”

Address to Chinese Learners of English
Learners of English, I'm here appealing to your earnest desire for further studies. I'm here warning you against your satisfaction with your basic knowledge only. You must read more and practice writing, if you want to rank among the best. Knowledge and skills can't be gained in a day. There's no shortcut to the peak of learning. Perseverance over a long time is necessary. If you halt in your studies, you will by degrees recede from where you are. You will gradually forget what you have learned so far. You won't be able to fish out some words from your mind when needed, which you diligently memorized before, if you don't use them often. It's just like an old acquaintance made long ago you can't make out who he is now after many years of separation. Besides holding on to your acquirements so far, you must leap over all the hurdles and march through marshes and woods to the summit of learning so that you can be proud of yourself as a giant in that language. Be assured, I'm always here for you. So, write something for me this very moment, and for yourself, too.
