5月第一篇!不说人话妥妥的!

横线部分是我要交的作业~

感觉全篇都翻得很渣!

不明点:

1.免费的用法是否正确

2.文中排比句的翻译拙计!

3.单复数纠结

4.时态纠结

5.定冠词纠结

……


最珍贵的东西是免费的

The dearest things are free of charge

作者:苇笛

 

忽然发觉,在这个世界上,最珍贵的东西是免费的。

I suddenly realized that, in this world, the dearest things are free of charge.

阳光,是免费的。芸芸众生,没有谁能够离开阳光活下去;然而,从小到大,可曾有谁为自己享受过的阳光支付过一分钱?

Sunshine is free of charge. No mortal beings can live without sunshine. However, had anyone paid for the sunshine that he had enjoyed throughout his life?

空气,是免费的。一个人只要还活着,就需要源源不断的空气。可从古到今,又有谁为这须臾不可缺少的东西买过单?无论是贩夫走卒还是明星政要,他们一样自由地呼吸着充盈天地间的空气。

Air is free of charge. A man needs continuous supply of air while he is still living. Yet, from time immemorial, no one paid for it which men cannot do without even for a moment. No matter pedlars, porters, stars or politicians, all of them breath in the world-filling air freely.

亲情,是免费的。每一个婴儿来到世上,都受到了父母无微不至的呵护,那是一份深入血脉不求回报的疼爱。可从没有哪一个父母会对孩子说:你给我钱我才疼你。父母的这份爱,不因孩子的成年而贬值,更不因父母的衰老而削弱;只要父母还活着,这份爱就始终如一。

Family affections are free of charge. Since a baby comes to the world is under meticulous care of its parents --- so profound and selfless that none of the parents would say, “I won't care for you unless I'm paid.” The love of parents would not fade along with children’s growing up, nor would it fade because of parent’s senility. Instead, the love would last invariably as long as the parents are still alive.

友情,是免费的。寂寞时默默陪伴你的那个人,摔倒时向你伸出手臂的那个人,伤心时将你揽在怀里的那个人,可曾将他(她)的付出折合成现金,然后要你还钱?

Friendship is free of charge. The one who keeps you company mutely when you feel lonely, the one who gives you a helping hand when you fall down, or the one who holds you in his/her arms when you are in sorrow would never ask you to convert them into money and pay him/her back.

爱情,是免费的。那份不由自主的倾慕,那份无法遏制的思念,那份风雨同舟的深情,那份相濡以沫的挚爱,正是生命最深切的慰藉与最坚实的依靠。而这一切,都是免费的,更是金钱买不来的。

Love is free of charge. Those admirations beyond control, thoughts beyond suppression, deep feelings from sharing the same fate, and true love through thick and thin are the most profound comfort and the most solid support of life. All of these are free of charge and can not be bought with money.

目标,是免费的。无论是锦衣玉食的王子,还是衣不蔽体的流浪儿,只要愿意,就能为自己的人生确立一个目标。这个目标既可以伟大也可以平凡,既可以辉煌也可以朴素,只要你愿意,你就能拥有。

Goals are free of charge. Whether you are a prince swimming in luxury or a tramp in rags, you could set a goal for your life as long as you like. No matter great or common, brilliant or simple, you could have a goal as long as you are willing to.

还有信念,还有希望,还有意志,还有梦想……所有这一切,都是免费的,只要你想要,你就能得到。还有春风,还有细雨,还有皎洁的月华,还有灿烂的星辉……世间多少滋润心灵的美好风物,都是免费的啊……

So are faiths, hopes, wills and dreams. All of them are free of charge. You can hold them in hand as long as you wish. So are spring breeze, the drizzles, pure moonlight, and bright stars. So many things that could purify your spirit in this world are free of charge!

再不要对着苍天唉声叹气了!苍天是公正的,更是慷慨的;苍天早已把最珍贵的一切,免费地馈赠给了每一个人。

Sigh no more to Heaven! He is generous and justice, for he had already given all dearest things to everyone for free.
