时间:2022-6-12 作者:洪恩少儿英语

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints; we spend more, but have less; we buy more but enjoy less.

大家这个年代在历史上的说法就是大家拥有更高的建筑,但有更暴的脾气;大家拥有更宽阔的高速公路,却有更狭隘的看法;大家花费得更多,拥有得却更少;大家购买得更多却享受得更少。

We have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.

大家的房屋愈加大,家庭却愈加小;便利愈加多,时间却愈加少;学位愈加多,感觉却愈加少;常识愈加多,看法却愈加少;专家愈加多,问题也愈加多;药物愈加多,福利却愈加少。

We drink too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

大家喝得太多,烧钱大手大脚,笑得太少,开车太快,易怒,熬夜,赖床,书读得愈加少,电视看得愈加多,却极少向上帝祈祷。

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life; we’ve added years to life, not life to years.

大家常常夸夸其谈,却极少付出爱心,且常常心中充满了仇恨。大家掌握了怎么样谋生,而不知怎么样生活。大家延长了生命的期限,而不是生活的期限。

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space; we’ve done larger things, but not better things.

大家登上了月球,并成功返回,却不可以穿过街道去拜访新邻居。大家已经征服了太空,却征服不了我们的内心;大家的事业越做越大,但水平却没提升。

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul; we’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less; we plan more, but accomplish less.

大家清洗了空气,却污染了灵魂;大家离别了原子,却没办法驱除大家的偏见;大家写得更多,学到的却更少;大家的计划更多,完成的却更少。

We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but, lower morals.

大家掌握了奔跑,却忘记了怎么样等待;大家的收入愈加高,道德水平却愈加低。

We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication; we’ve become long on quantity, but short on quality.

大家制造了更多的计算机来存储更多的信息,制造了最多的副本,却降低了交流;大家开始渴望数目,但忽略了水平。

These are the days of two incomes, but more porce; of fancier houses, but more broken homes.

这个年代有双收入,但也有了更高的离婚率;有更华丽的房子,却有更多破碎的家庭。

These are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw away morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. Where are we heading…?

这个年代有了迅速旅游,免洗尿布,却抛弃了道德、一夜情、超重的身体,与可以从快乐中走向静止和自杀的药物。大家将走向何方……?

If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family we left behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.

假如大家明天就死掉,大家为之工作的公司或许会在一天内非常随便地找人代替大家的地方。但当大家离开家人后,他们的余生将会在失落中度过。

And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family an unwise investment indeed.

考虑考虑吧,大家将我们的时间更多地投入到工作中,而放弃与家人在一块的时光,实在并不是明智之举。

So what is the morale of the story?

那样这则故事的主旨是什么呢?

Don’t work too hard… and you know what’s the full word of family?

不要工作得太辛苦,你了解家的全名吗?

FAMILY = (F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER, (I) (L)OVE (Y)OU.

家=父母,我爱你们。
