Youth 青春

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

青春不仅仅是生命的时间概念,它是思想的境界;青春不仅仅是粉红色的脸颊,红唇和柔软的曲线;青春是梦想,强大创造力,思想的活力,青春是人生中生机勃勃的源泉。

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.

青春意味着勇气的气质超过了胆怯,青春意味着冒险的渴望超过安逸的享受。这些在60岁的人身上比20岁的人更加常见。没有人变老完全是因为年纪的增长,我们变老是因为我们抛弃了自己梦想

Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.

岁月可以使我们的皮肤皱起,但是放弃热情,将会使我们的心灵也皱起。担忧、恐惧、丧失自信,将会让我们的心灵扭曲,思想如尘埃。

Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing childlike appetite for what’s next and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station: so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the Infinite, so long are you young.

无论是60岁还是16岁,每个人类心灵中都有着不可思议的渴望,犹如孩童般不灭的欲望,想去知道生命游戏中下一个内容和乐趣。在你我心中有一台天线:只要接收着来自别人或者上帝的美丽、希望、欢呼、勇气和力量的信号,你就会一直保持青春。

When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynic-ism(6) and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at 20; but as long as your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at 80.

当天线倒掉,你的思想将被玩世不恭和悲观厌世的冰雪所覆盖,甚至在20岁的时候就会慢慢老去,但是只要升起你的天线,捕捉更多的乐观信号,在你80岁即将离世的时候依然感觉年轻。
