英语励志短文:Ambition抱负(双语阅读)

It is not difficult to imagine a world short of ambition.It would probably be a kinder world:without demands,without abrasions without disappointments.

一个缺乏抱负的世界 将会怎样,这不难想象。或许,这将是一个更为友善的世界:没有渴求,没有摩擦,没有失望。

People would have time for reflection.Such work as they did would not he for themselves but for the collectivity. Competition would never enter in. Conflict would be eliminated, tension become a thing of the past. The stress of creation would be at an end.

人们将有时间进行反思。他们所从事的工作将不是为了他们自身,而是为了整个集体。竞争永远不会介入;冲突将被消除。人们的紧张关系将成为过往云烟。创造的重压将得以终结。

Art would no longer be troubling, but purely celebratory in its functions.Longevity would be increased,for fewer people would die of heart attack or stroke caused by tumultuous endeavor. Anxiety would be extinct.

艺术将不再惹人费神,其功能将纯粹为了庆典。人的寿命将会更长,因为由激烈拼争引起的心脏病和中风所导致的死亡将越来越少。焦虑将会消失。

Time would stretch on and on, with ambition long departed from  the human heart.

时光流逝,抱负却早已远离人心。

We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing.We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time or conditions of our death.

我们无法选择出生,无法选择父母,无法选择出生的历史时期与国家,或是成长的环境。我们大多数人都无法选择死亡,无法选择死亡的时间或条件。

But within all this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we shall live: courageously or in cowardice,honorably or dishonorably, with purpose or in drift.

但是在这些无法选择之中,我们的确可以选择自己的生活方式:是勇敢无畏还是胆小怯懦,是光明磊落还是厚颜无耻,是目标坚定还是随波逐流。

We decide what is important and what is trivial in life.We decide that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe to our choices and decisions, these choices and decisions are ours to make.

我们决定生活中哪些至关重要,哪些微不足道。我们决定,用以显示我们自身重要性的,不是我们做了什么,就是我们拒绝做些什么。但是不论世界对我们所做的选择和决定有多么漠不关心,这些选择和决定终究是我们自己做出的。

We decide. We choose.And as we decide and choose, so are our lives formed. In the end, forming our own destiny is what ambition about.

我们决定,我们选择。而当我们决定和选择时,我们的生活便得以形成。最终构筑我们命运的就是抱负之所在。
