  成都美联英语:最重要的唯一的力量

  如果所有人——也包括我自己——都更新或重铸自己的人格,这应该是有益于人类的。这也许仅仅是抹去粗糙的边缘或丢弃固有的模式,从而显露出不平整,有时则需要拿走支撑物,完全靠自己站立。不论何种情况,只要我们有人树立榜样,其他人就会效仿,结果就应该是好的。对此我深信不疑。

  A Straight Wall Is Hard to Build

  by Lou R. Crandall

  人格的力量

  卢.R.克兰德尔

  I am using this example to illustrate human character, which to me is the most important single power in the world today. The young people of toady are in reality foundations of structures yet to be built. It is obvious that the design of these human structures is the combined efforts of many human architects. Boys and girls are influenced first by their parents, then by their friends and finally by business associates. During this period of construction, the human character is revised and changed until at maturity a fairly well-fixed form of character is found.

  我以此例来说明人格,在我看来它是当今世界上最重要的唯一的力量。今天的年轻人实际上是世界待建结构的根基。显而易见,设计这些人格结构需要众多人类建筑师的共同努力。孩子们的成长,先后要受到父母、朋友和事业伙伴的影响。在这一成长过程中,人格一直在改变,直到在成熟期定型。

  There are few human straight walls and fewer human monumental shafts. Such men and women are personalities of great beauty and are so rare that history records their being and holds them up as examples for the future. The Biblical characters are for me the closest examples of human perfection. They were unselfish, steadfast in their faith and unstinting in their help to others.

  人类中堪称墙一般笔直挺立的人少有,像纪念柱一样矗立的人更少,这样的人是美的化身,世所罕见,历史记录他们的存在,奉之为后世的楷模。《圣经》中的人物在我心中是最接近完人的范例,他们无私,信仰坚定,帮助他人,不遗余力。

  Today in this world of turmoil and trouble we could use more of such people, but they do not just happen along. I believe that they are the result of concentrated effort on the part of parents and associates, and the more we build with character the better the world will become. This may sound like a dreamer's hope and a theoretical goal which can never be reached. I do not think so.

  在今天这个混乱不安的世界,我们可以多用这样的人,但他们并非从天而降。我相信他们是父母、同伴倾力锻造的结果。我们越重视人格的建构,世界会越美好。这听起来像痴人说梦,是永远无法实现的理论目标,我却不这么想。
