译文赏析 》光亮与暗影

光亮与暗影

 


  When you are in the summer sunyour body seems to shine with light1 and you find the shadow behind you very dark If it is at noon and you are in the strongest sunshine you look the brightest and cast a shadow that thickens to be a dark-blue iron-color mass2. If it is in the winter when the sky is covered with heavy clouds,3 you will cast no shadow and even your figure will appear rather unclear look gray and seem to lack vigor

  This can be applied to situations in which a man finds himself in life 4 When he is successful he is in the sun The greater his achievement the brighter his halo -- the glory showered on him 5 His shadow is also proportionally becoming darker and darker When his halo is the brightest his shadow is the darkestfor at this time the number of his opponents6 -- those who envy himswear at him hate him for standing in their way find fault and criticize him -- will be the biggest Everything has two opposite sides just like light and shadow always coexisting side by side7

  On the other hand the less successful person receives less light -- less social attention 8 A person achieves nothing in life has no light at all -- nobody shows any attention to him 9 thus he is entirely free from jealousy and slander Such a person often loses his identity in a crowd his appearance is almost undistinguishable10

  So when you succeed in something don't complain against any possible attack you may encounter As for charges launched at you by narrow-minded people11they are even less worth your attention for all these amount to nothing more than shadows cast by your halo

 

当夏日的阳光照射着你时,你的身体就会非常明亮,可那时你也会发现,你的身影也会随之变得非常黑暗。在正午的强光下,你的身体不但会因为强光的照射而显得更为明亮,你的暗影也会因此变成一块浓重的青黑铁色。而在冬季,在没有日光的阴云下,你不但不会投下暗影,甚至连你的人也会变得相对模糊,灰蒙蒙的没有生气。 

  这道理也可以比做一个事业有成的人,在你的成绩越大时,社会投在你身上的光环也就越明亮。而这时,你的暗影其实也就越强烈。比如妒忌你的人、骂你的人、怀恨你挡了道的人、议论你的人,也就相对地多了起来。任何事物都有着不同的两面,光亮和暗影也是永远对称的。

  而一个一事无成的人,却很少有这种社会的强光照射,也就没有那么多的妒忌与诽谤。这样的人,在人群里的确也是模糊不清的那种。

  因此,在你取得成绩时,不要抱怨他人对你的攻击,更不要在乎小人对你的指责,那正是笼罩在你光环下的一道暗影。

Behind our house is the start of a fascinating trail (小径). This trail is one of the old roads that wind through untold miles of forest. My   1  , Beans, and I walk the trail frequently.

    Soon it became   9    that we were getting nowhere. I began to picture the rest of the day in the   10  , without food or drink. We had walked about ten miles. But Beans seemed totally   11    . The sniffing and exploring was going well for him.

    Finally, we   12   a crossroad near a highway. Lady Luck suggested I should turn left. We did and   13     reached a cottage beside a field. I knocked on the door and explained my situation to an old man. He laughed and then  14   us home.

    Since our adventure, I   15   that Beans probably knew all along how to get home.

He was just having too much fan exploring new trails.
