英语美文:

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.

Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment. When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said,“Richness, can you take me with you?”

Richness answered,“No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you.”

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel.“Vanity, please help me!”

“I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat.”Vanity answered.

Sadness also passed close by, so Love asked,“Sadness, let me go with you.”

“Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!”

Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.

Suddenly, there was a voice,“Come, Love, I will take you.”It was an elder.

So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went his own way. Realizing how much she owed to the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder,“Who helped me?”

“It was Time,”Knowledge answered.

“Time?”asked Love.“But why did Time help me?”

Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered,“Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is.”

英语美文翻译:

很久以前,有一个岛住着所有的情感:幸福,悲伤,知识,还有其他的,还包括爱。一天,所有的情感得知小岛要被淹没,他们造好了船然后准备离开,除了爱。

爱是唯一留下来的。它想坚持到最后一刻。当小岛几乎被淹没的时候,爱决定寻求帮助。 

富裕乘着一艘大船经过爱。爱说:“富裕,你能带我一起走吗?” 

富裕回答说:“不,我不能。我的船上有很多金银。这里没有你的位置。“ 

爱决定问装在一个美丽的容器里面的虚荣。“虚荣,请帮帮我!” 

“我帮不了你,爱,你全身湿透了,可能会弄坏我的船。“虚荣回答。 

悲伤也过去了,然后爱问:“悲伤,让我和你一起去吧。” 

“噢…爱,我很难过,我需要一个人安静一会!“ 

幸福也从爱身边过去,但她太高兴了,以至于连爱呼唤她的时候都没有听见。 

突然,有一个声音,“来吧,爱,我带你走。”原来是一位长者。 

爱是如此的幸福和欣喜,甚至忘了问长者它们要去哪里。当他们到达陆地的时候,老人就放下爱独自前行了。爱意识到它欠长者很大的情,便问另一位长者——知识:“是谁帮助了我?” 

“是时间。”知识回答道。 

“时间?”爱问,“但为什么时间会帮助我呢?” 

知识以深沉的智慧微笑着回答:“因为只有时间才能理解爱的价值。”

本期英语美文的寓意:唯有爱,才在时间面前难能可贵,所谓的富裕、虚荣、快乐,在时间看来,都只不过是过眼云烟罢了。
