Courage 勇气

In the matter of courage we all have our limits. There never was a hero who did not have his bounds. I suppose it may be said of Nelson and all the others whose courage has been advertised that there came times in their lives when their bravery knew it had come to its limit.

就勇气本身而言,我们都有自己的界限。没有任何一个英雄的,他的勇气是没有止境的。我想人们会说Nelson和其他的英雄,在他们的生活中勇气被完全的展现,并达到他们认为的极限。

I have found mine a good many times. Sometimes this was expected -- often it was unexpected. I know a man who is not afraid to sleep with a rattle-snake, but you could not get him to sleep with a safety-razor.

我发现自己有很多类似的时候。有时候这种情况是期望出现的,有时候却令人失望。我知道有人不害怕和响尾蛇睡在一起,但是却不敢睡在安全剃须刀旁边。

I never had the courage to talk across a long, narrow room. I should be at the end of the room facing all the audience. If I attempt to talk across a room I find myself turning this way and that, and thus at alternate periods I have part of the audience behind me. You ought never to have any part of the audience behind you; you never can tell what they are going to do.

我没有勇气在一个狭长的空间中讲演。我必须站在屋子的一角,直面听众。如果我尝试着在这样一个空间中讲演,并按照原定的方式,于是到了交流时间就会有部分的听众在我的背后。你应该不希望有任何一个听众站在你的后面,因为你不 知道他们会做什么。

I'll sit down.

那么我就会坐下。
