"The people who come here have a lot of money to spend, so they can afford to travel," his father said. "Amongst us, the only ones who travel are the shepherds."

“那些来我们这里游玩的有很多钱,所以他们能负担得起这笔费用,”爸爸继续说到。“我们这样的人,只有牧羊人才到处游历。”

"Well, then I'll be a shepherd!"

“那我就做个牧羊人。”

His father said no more. The next day, he gave his son a pouch that held three ancient Spanish gold coins.

爸爸不再劝阻了。第二天,他给了圣地亚哥一个袋子,里面装有三个古西班牙金币。

"I found these one day in the fields. I wanted them to be a part of your inheritance. But use them to buy your flock. Take to the fields, and someday you'll learn that our countryside is the best, and our women the most beautiful."

“这是有一天我在地里发现的。我本打算在我去世的时候把它们留给你。但现在你拿去买一群羊吧。去四处放羊,总有一天你会发现,我们的村子是最好的,我们的女人是最美的。”

And he gave the boy his blessing. The boy could see in his father's gaze a desire to be able, himself, to travel the world—a desire that was still alive, despite his father's having had to bury it, over dozens of years, under the burden of struggling for water to drink, food to eat, and the same place to sleep every night of his life.

然后爸爸祝福了自己的儿子。在爸爸的凝视里,圣地亚哥看到了爸爸想要周游世界的渴望——它依然活着,尽管几十年来,爸爸为了水,食物以及每个夜晚固定的栖身之处竭尽全力而不得不将这种渴望埋藏起来。
