Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.

A tale of two cities

       最近,翻出儿子在念高中时送的书《 Chicken Soup for the Woman’s 》(译成 心灵鸡汤)重读起来。书中有101篇故事,简练之中凝结着人生的智慧、蕴涵着丰富的人生哲理。每回读后都有不同的感悟。先贴上一篇,顺带译一笔。
 A traveler nearing a great city asked a woman seated by the wayside,  "What are the people like in the city?"
 "How were the people where you came from?"
 "A terrible lot," the traveler responded.  "Mean, untrustworthy, detestable in all respects."
 "Ah," said the woman, ‘you will find them the same in the city ahead."
 Scarcely was the first traveler gone when another one stopped and also inquired about the people in the
 city before him.  Again the old woman asked about the people in the place the traveler had left. 
 "They were fine people; honest, industrious, and generous to a fault.  I was sorry to leave," declared the
 second traveler.
 Responded the wise woman:  "So you will find them in the city ahead."

“ 可怕极了,他们自私,虚伪,欺诈。”

“非常可爱,我在那里很开心。 他们诚实,勤劳,慷慨乐于助人。”
