英文欣赏:​Lessons from Geese 大雁的启示(下)

Lesson 4

第四课

The geese in a formation honk from behind to encourage those in front to keep up their speed.

为了鼓励队形前方的大雁,后面的雁群往往发出鼓励叫声。

We need to make sure our honking from behind is encouraging and not something else.

我们需要确信雁叫声是从后面发出的,而不是别的什么地方。

In groups where there is great encouragement against great obstacles, the production is much greater.

在一个团队中,拥有强大的鼓励而不是巨大的障碍,那么成效会更大。

This is the power of encouragement. At the center of encouragement is "courage", and the root of courage is a Latin word that means "heart". Maybe honking strengthens the heart.

这就是鼓励的力量。鼓励的核心是勇气,勇气的根本是一个拉丁词语,意思是“心”。也许雁叫声让心变得强大了。

Lesson 5

第五课

When a goose gets sick, or wounded, or shot down, two geese drop out of formation and follow it to help and protect it.

当一只雁生病了,或者被枪害了,另外两只大雁将会脱离队形并紧紧跟着那只大雁,保护和帮助它。

They stay with it until it is either able to fly again or dies.

它们一直陪伴着那只大雁直到它再次能飞或者死亡。

Then they launch out on their own with another formation or catch up with the flock.

然后他们才会继续飞行,追赶前面的队伍。

If we have as much sense as geese, we too will stand by each other in difficult times as well as when we are strong.

如果具备大雁这种团队意识,我们将会像大雁那样肩并肩的一起战斗!
