I have had a long life, I have had much time for thought as I lay alone in my stall, and I think I may say that I understand the nature of life on this earth as well as any animal now living.

我已经活了好长时间了,当我独自躺在畜栏里我有很多很多的时间来思考,而且我认为我可能了解了地球上的自然生活,也了解了现在所生活的任何动物。

 It is about this that I wish to speak to you.

我想要告诉你们。


 ‘Now, comrades, what is the nature of this life of ours? Let us face it, our lives are miserable, laborious and short. 

现在,同志们,什么是我们的自然的生活?让我们去面对它吧,我们的生活是未知的,充满劳动的,并且短暂的。

We are born, we are given just so much food as will keep the breath in our bodies, and those of us who are capable of it are forced to work to the last atom of our strength;

 我们从出生以来,就只被给予只够让我们的肉体存活的食物,并且那些有能力坚持下来的动物都被要求工作直到用尽最后一丝气力。

and the very instant that our usefulness has come to an end we are slaughtered with hideous cruelty. 

当我们?时我们就没有用处了。

No animal in England knows the meaning of happiness or leisure after he is a year old. 

在英国的所有动物之中,没有一只动物是在一岁以前就能领会到幸福和闲趣的滋味。

No animal in England is free.

在英格兰,没有动物是自由的。 

The life of an animal is misery and slavery: that is the plain truth.

动物们的生活充满真真切切的困苦和饥饿。

 ‘But is this simply part of the order of Nature? 

然而,这就是最本来的自然规律么?
