之那些激励我前行的英语演讲

31 Courage

勇气Mark Twain 马克·吐温In the matter of courage we all have our limits. There never was a hero who did not have his bounds.

勇气气达到极限的时候。我就多次发现自己的勇气到了极限。

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.

有时是意料之中的——经常是出乎意料的。我认识一个人,此君不怕与响尾蛇同寝,可你无法让他与安全剃刀共眠。I have found mine a good many times.Sometimes this was expected— often it was unexpected.

我从来就没有勇气在狭长房间的中央发表讲话。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.

在勇气问题上,人人都有极限。从来就没有胆大包天的英雄好汉。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.

我想,可以说,纳尔逊和所有那些被大量宣传的勇士一生中都有勇我得站在房间的一头,面对全体听众。

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.

如果我试图站在房间中央讲话,我就会不断地转身,这样,就不断有部分听众在我背后。

You ought never to have any part of the audience behind you;you never can tell what they are going to do. I’ll sit down.

你们永远不能让自己背后有听众;你们永远不知道他们要干什么。我得坐下了。
