快乐学英语(104)--家

Home

What makes a home? Love and sympathy and confidence. It is a place where kindly affections exist among all the members of the family. The parents take good care of their children, and the children are interested in the activities of their parents. Thus all of them are bound together by affection, and they find their home to be the cheeriest place in the world.

组成家庭的因素是什么?答案即爱、认同和信赖。家是一个所有家庭成员凝结情感的地方。父母亲悉心照料孩子,而孩子们也对他们双亲的活动感兴趣。他们为爱所联结,因而发现家是世界上最令人感到欢乐的地方。

A home without love is no more a home than a body without a soul is a man. Every civilized person is a social being. No one should live alone. A man may lead a successful and prosperous life, but prosperity alone can by no means insure happiness. Many great personages in the world history had deep affections for their homes.

一个没有爱的家便不再称其为家,如同没有灵魂的躯体不再是人一样。每一个有修养的人都是社会性的人。没有人能够脱离社会独自生存。一个人也许过着成功而宽裕的生活,但是荣华富贵决不能保证幸福快乐。在世界历史上,许多名人都对其家庭怀有深情厚意。

Your home may be poor and humble, but your duty lies there. You should try to make it cheerful and comfortable. The greater the difficulties, the richer will be your reward.

你的家也许贫穷而简陋,但那正是你的职责所在。你应该努力使其愉快和舒适。你遭遇的困难越大,所得到的报偿也就越多。

A home is more than a family dwelling. It is a school in which people are trained for citizenship. A man will not render good services to his country if he can do nothing good for his home; for in proportion as he loves his home, will he love his country. The home is the birthplace of true patriotism. It is the secret of social welfare and national greatness. It is the basis and origin of civilization.

家不仅仅是一个供家人居住的地方。它还是一个培养人们成为公民的场所。一个人假如无法对家庭做出有意义的事情, 也就无法为国家提供优良的服务,因为爱家和爱国是成正比的。 家庭是爱国主义精神的真正发源地,是社会福利和国家昌盛的秘诀,是文明的基础和起源。
