Then sometimes the public applauded too much, or too little, to please him.

紧接着,有时观众又会给过多或过少的掌声来取悦他。

"They are like wet wood," he would say, looking round to see what sort of people were present, "this evening; nothing fires them."

他们简直在胡闹!于是他会环顾四周看看在场的都是哪种人,继续说,今晚,他们啥也没做对!

Then he would vex and fret himself because they did not laugh at the right time, or because they laughed in the wrong places;

接着他便会自寻烦恼,或是因为观众没找到笑点,或是因为他们不合时宜地大笑;

and so he fretted and worried himself till at last the unhappy man fretted himself into the grave.

这位不高兴先生至始至终都在烦扰自己,直到最终他带着无尽烦恼进了坟墓。

Here rests a happy man, that is to say, a man of high birth and position, which was very lucky for him, otherwise he would have been scarcely worth notice.

这儿安息着一个快乐的人,我是说,他有很好的出生和身份。这对他来说可是件非常幸运的事儿,因为不然的话,他几乎不值得注意。

It is beautiful to observe how wisely nature orders these things.

观察造物主如何巧妙地安排这些事是非常美妙的。

He walked about in a coat embroidered all over,and in the drawing-rooms of society looked just like one of those rich pearl-embroidered bell-pulls, which are only made for show; and behind them always hangs a good thick cord for use.

他穿着全身刺绣的外套踱来踱去,在社交界的客厅里看上去就好像点缀着名贵珍珠,仅仅为了作秀用的拉铃带中的一条;而在拉铃带后面总是悬挂着以便使用的粗大绳索。

This man also had a stout, useful substitute behind him, who did duty for him, and performed all his dirty work.

这名男子背后也有一个结实又能干的替身,他代替这位先生干掉所有脏活。

And there are still, even now, these serviceable cords behind other embroidered bell-ropes.

即使到现在,仍有好使的绳索跟在其他华贵的拉铃带身后。

It is all so wisely arranged, that a man may well be in a good humor.

一切都被安排地恰如其分,以至于那个人一定会有好心情。

【拉铃带到底是神马神奇的东西啊orz。。。

后面自己也不太明白其实。。。大家别pia窝QAQ...

欢迎大大们来指正!w
