Human life is a poem(人生如歌)【每日听力】

人生如诗,岁月如歌。人有生来病死,但我仍觉得,衡量人是否衰老,不在于年龄,而在于心态。

正如一首诗中所说:

年岁有加,并非垂老,理想丢弃,方堕暮年。 岁月悠悠,衰微只及肌肤;热忱抛却,颓废必致灵魂。 无论年届花甲,抑或二八芳龄,心中皆有生命之欢乐,奇迹之诱惑,孩童般天真久盛不衰。来源《Youth》;塞缪尔·厄尔曼 作;王佐良 译

Human life is a poem听力材料

Human life is a poem听力原文

I think that, from a biological standpoint, human life almost reads like a poem. It has its own rhythm and beat, its internal cycles of growth and decay. 

我认为,从生物学的观点来说,人生品味起来就像一首诗。它有其自身的韵律和节拍,有其生老病死的内在循环过程。

It begins with innocent childhood, followed by awkward adolescence trying awkwardly to adapt itself to mature society, with its young passions and follies, its ideals and ambitions; then it reaches a manhood of intense activities, profiting from experience and learning more about society and human nature. 

它以天真烂漫的童年为序曲;接着便是青涩的青春期,带着青年人的热情和愚蠢、理想和抱负,羞涩、懵懂地迈向成人的世界;然后便进入一个活力充沛的成年时期,这个时期人们从阅历中获益,对社会及人性也有了更多了解。

At middle age, there is a slight easing of tension, a mellowing of character like the ripening of fruit or the mellowing of good wine, and the gradual acquiring of a more tolerant, more cynical and at the same time a kindlier view of life。

到中年之时,压力才稍为减轻,人的性格就像熟透的水果或醇厚的美酒一般,更为圆熟,这时候,对人生的态度也逐渐变得更宽容、更随性、更仁慈。

Then in the sunset of our life, the endocrine glands decrease their activity, and if we have a true philosophy of old age and have ordered our life pattern according to it, it is for us the age of peace and security and leisure and contentment. 

此后,便到了我们的迟暮之年,内分泌腺的活动逐渐趋缓。如果我们对年老持一种真正的达观态度,并以此来安排我们的生活方式,那么,这个时期对我们来说,就是安宁、稳定、闲逸和满足的时期。

Finally, life flickers out and one goes into eternal sleep, never to wake up again.

最终,生命的火光摇曳不定,之后人将永远地长眠,不再醒来。
