I went to visit my old friend, Mina, whom I hadnrsquo;t seen in several years. It was one of the strangest afternoons of my life!我去拜访我的老朋友,米娜,我已经几年没有见过她了这是我生命中最奇怪的下午之一!Dan: Hi, Mina, itrsquo;s really good to see you.嗨,米娜,很高兴见到你Mina: Dan, come in. Hurry!丹,进来,快点![Dan: Uh, okay. Why do you have four locks on your door, and why are all of the curtains drawn?嗯,好的为什么门上有把锁?为什么所有的窗帘都要拉上?Mina: I like my privacy. And anyway, I think therersquo;s a peeping Tom around this apartment building and I donrsquo;t want him to get a peek into my apartment.我喜欢我的隐私反正,我觉得这个公寓大楼周围有一个偷窥者,我不让他窥视到我的公寓Dan: Oh, okay. I noticed that your name isnrsquo;t on your mailbox. I wasnrsquo;t sure I had the right apartment number.哦,好的我注意到,你的邮箱上没有你的名字我不知道我手上的公寓号码是否正确Mina: Do you think I would voluntarily give people that inmation? They are constantly trying to invade my privacy. All I want is anonymity, but I have to be on guard all of the time. These days, I only give out personal inmation on a need- to-know basis.你觉得我会主动给人们那样的信息吗?他们不断尝试入侵犯我的隐私我只想匿名,但我一直都得小心这些天,我只在必要的时候才透露我的个人信息Dan: No offense, but isnrsquo;t that a little paranoid? You act as though everybody is out to get you.没有冒犯的意思,但那是不是有点偏执?你的行为好像每个人都想抓你Mina: Arenrsquo;t they? Havenrsquo;t you noticed? We constantly have to disclose our most personal inmation on ms and to anyone who comes to our door. If I didnrsquo;t know you were coming today, I wouldnrsquo;t have opened my door at all.难倒不是吗?你有没有注意到?我们不得不在填表的时候披露我们的个人信息或任何人来到我们家的人如果我不知道你今天来,我根本不会打开我的门Dan: You mean you live here in seclusion, like a hermit?你的意思是你像一个隐士住在这里,隐居?Mina: Of course not! I have plenty of friends. Come and meet them all.当然不是!我有很多朋友快来见见他们Dan: Wow, you must have birds and cats!哇,你肯定有只鸟和只猫!Mina: Yes, thatrsquo;s right. But, rest assured, none of them will breathe a word of what you say here today!是的,说对了但是,放心吧,它们都不会说出你今天在这里说过的话! 98Years ago, when I started looking my first job, wise advisers urged, ;Barbara, be enthusiastic! Enthusiasm will take you further than any amount of experience.;乡年前, 当我第一次找工作时,不少明智之士强烈向我建议:“巴巴拉,要有热情!热情比任何经验都更有益”How right they were. Enthusiastic people can tum a boring drive into an adventure, extra work into opporty and strangers into friends.这话多么正确,热情的人可以把沉闷的车程变成探险,把加班变成机会, 把生人变成朋友;Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm,; wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is the paste that helps you hang in there when the going gets tough. It is the inner voice that whispers,¨I can do it!; when others shout, ;No, you cant.;“没有热情就不会有任何伟大的成就,”拉尔夫?沃尔多.爱默生写道当事情进展不顺时,热情是帮助你坚持下去的粘合剂当别人叫喊“你不行”时, 热情是你内心发出的声音:“我能行”It took years and years the early work of Barbara McClintock,a geneticist who won the 1983 Nobel Prize in medicine, to be generally accepted. Yet she didnt let up on her experiments. Work was such a deep pleasure her that she never thought of stopping.1983隼诺贝尔医学奖的获得者遗传学家巴巴拉?麦克林托克早年的工作直到很多年后才被公众所承认,但她并没有放弃实验工作,对她来说是一种如此巨大的快乐, 她从未想过要停止它We are all born with wide-eyed, enthusiastic wonder as anyone knows who has ever seen an infant delight at the jingle of keys or the scurrying of a beetle. It is this childlike wonder that gives enthusiastic people such a youthful air, whatever their age.我们都生来好奇,呼大眼睛,满怀热情一一每一个看到过婴儿听到钥匙声或看见乱爬的甲虫就兴奋不己的人都会明白这一点At 90, cellist Pablo Casals would start his day by playing Bach. As the music flowed through his fingers, his stooped shoulders would straighten and joy would reappear in his eyes.正是这种孩子气的好奇给了热情的人们(不论年龄大小)一种青春的气息大提琴家帕布罗?卡萨尔斯在90岁时还坚持以拉巴赫开始他的每一天音乐从他的指间流出,他弯着的背挺直起来,欢乐再度溢满Music, Casals, was an elixir that made life a never ending adventure. As author and poet Samuel Ullman once wrote, ;Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.;他的眼眸音乐对卡萨尔斯来说,是使人生变成无止境的探索之旅的灵丹妙药就像作家兼诗人塞缪尔?厄尔曼曾写过的:“岁月使皮肤起了皱纹,但如果失去热情,便会使灵魂起皱纹”How do you rediscover the enthusiasm of your childhood? The answer,I believe, lies in the worditself. ;Enthusiasm; comes from the Greek and means ;God within.; And what is God within is but an abiding sense oflove - proper love of self (self-acceptance) and, from that, love of others.恁样才能找回孩提时代的热情呢?我相信就在“热情”这个词本身“热情”一词源于希腊语, 原意是“内在的上帝”这里所说的“内在的上帝”不是别的,而是一种持久不变的爱一一恰当的自爱(自我接受), 并推而及于他人Enthusiastic people also love what they do, regardless of money or title or power. If we cannot do what we love as afull-time career, we can as a part-time avocation, like the head of state who paints, the nun who runs marathons, the executive who handcrafts furniture.热情的人们同样热爱他们所做的事,而不是考虑钱位权如果我们不能把热爱的事作为正式职业,我们也可把它当作业余消遣:比如有国家元首喜欢画画的,有修女参加马拉松长跑的,有行政官员手工制作家具的Elizabeth Layton of Wellsville, Kan, was 68 bee she began to draw. This activity ended bouts of depression that had plagued her at least 30 years, and the quality of her work led one critic to say,”I am tempted to call Layton a genius.; Elizabeth has rediscovered her enthusiasm.堪萨斯州韦尔斯维尔市的伊丽莎白?莱顿到68岁才开始画画这一爱好消除了曾纠缠她至少达30年之久的忧郁症而她的作品水准之高使得一个家说:“我忍不住要称莱顿为天才”伊丽莎白又找回了她的热情We cant afd to waste tears on ;might-have-been.; We need to turn the tears into sweat as we goafter ;what-can-be.;我们不应该把眼泪浪费在“早该”之类的后悔上我们需要把眼泪化为汗水,去追求“可能”之物We need to live each moment wholeheartedly, with all our senses - finding pleasure in the fragrance of a back-yard garden, the crayoned picture of a six-year-old, the enchanting beauty of a rainbow.找们需要以全副身心去度过生命中的每一分钟一一在后花园的芬芳中在6岁小孩的蜡笔画中在虹醉人的美中找到快乐正是这种对生活的热爱.It is such enthusiastic love of life that puts a sparkle in our eyes,a lilt in our steps and smooth the wrinkles from our souls.让我们双目有神,让我们步履矫健,让我们灵魂的皱纹展平 585

I know the adjustment was hard when you first got here, but I thought you were coping pretty well. Luis: I was. It’s just that the holidays are coming up and I won’t be able to go home because I can’t afd the airfare. I’m just longing some of the comts of home, like my mom’s cooking and being around my family. Annie: Yeah, it can get pretty lonely over the holidays. When I first got here, I’d get depressed and nostalgic anything that reminded me of home. But, you know, I think I was just seeing things through rose-colored glasses. Luis: What do you mean? Annie: Well, things back home weren’t really that idyllic, but from this distance, all I could think of was the good stuff and none of the bad. Luis: I see what you mean, but I’m still bummed out. Annie: I have an idea. Why don’t we put on our own little holiday celebration? We can have it at my place and we can invite all of our friends who are on their own this time of year. We’ll each do something that’ll remind us of home. What do you say? Misery loves company, as they say. Luis: You know, I could really go that. You don’t mind all of the trouble? Annie: What trouble? As long as I don’t have to cook, I’m up it. Luis: Cool. I’ll ask around to see who else wants to come. Annie: Okay. I’ll do the same. Luis: Thanks. I’m feeling better aly. 79

This isn’t an unsafe workplace. We’ve had a good record. None of our employees have had on-the-job injuries this year and we’ve never had a fatality. I don’t understand why you’re so worried.

Yes, the inspector will look at our work environment and our gear and machinery to make sure there are no hazards or toxic substances. Lon: That’s what I’m worried about.

Abigail: Me, too. We’ll know after next week’s inspection. 词汇解释:1. memo n. 备忘录,便笺. safety inspection 安检3. unsafe a.不安全的. fatality n.死亡5. hazard n.危害 6. remotely dangerous 间接危险的7. cite v.传讯8. shut down 停业,关门9. all due respect 无意冒犯,冒昧地说. gear n.工具. toxic a.有毒的 . violation n.违反. to comply 遵守. safety standards 安全标准 6
