About the author



      亨利·戴维·梭罗(Henry David Thoreau,1817-1862),美国作家、哲学家,超验主义代表人物。一生共创作了二十多部一流的散文集,被称为自然随笔的创始者。梭罗短暂的一生简单而馥郁,孤独而芬芳。他鼓励人们简化生活,认为人类只有生活简单淳朴,才能享受内心地轻松和愉悦。他筑屋与瓦尔登湖,却有别于陶渊明的“采菊东篱下,悠然见南山”式的归隐,而是对人生进行积极的探询。《热爱生活》一文中他的谈吐简朴真实,然而说理透彻精辟,发人深省。


● Love Your Life ●

●●● 热爱生活 ●●●

By Henry David Thoreau


However mean your life is,

meet it and live it.

Do not shun it and call it hard names.

It is not so bad as you are,

It looks poorest when you are richest

The fault finder will find faults 

in paradise

Love your life, poor as it is

You may perhaps have some pleasant, 

thrilling, glorious hours, 

even in a poor-house.

The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man's abode.

The snow melts before its door as early in the spring.

I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there.

And have as cheering thoughts,

as in a palace.

The town's poor seem to me often to live the most independent lives of any.

Maybe they are simply great enough to receive without misgiving.

Most think that they are above being supported by the town.


不论你的生活如何卑微,你都得面对与度过

不要逃避,更不要抱怨

生活不像你认为的那般坏

当你富甲天下之时,生活却显得贫瘠乏味

即使在天堂,爱找缺点的人也能找到缺点。

即使生活贫穷,你也该热爱生活

因为就是在贫济院,

你也有自己快乐激动与光荣的岁月

夕阳照在贫济院窗上的反光

与照在富人家的一样耀目

其门前的积雪也同样在早春融化

我只是看到,

一个心绪宁静的人就算居住在贫济院,

生活起来也会心满意足。

思想愉悦,如同生活在皇宫中一样。

在我看来,

城镇中的贫民大凡

过着最为无拘无束的生活。

或许他们只是超乎寻常,

不然岂会毫无疑惧地接受这一切。

大多数人认为自己超凡脱俗

而无须依赖城镇的资助。

601-Carol 倪家恩感悟:

601倪家恩Carol




      For me, life is full of surprises. There's nothing to complain about if you don't believe it. By contrast, it's better to remember the unpleasant ones than the pleasant ones. If you don't let go of the unpleasant things, you may turn yourself into another person. The outside world can't change the nature of me. I would like to pursue my heart. I have read a book. There is a sentence which is very important to me. “ If I think I'm doing the right thing, no matter how many times I fall, I'll stand up again. After all, this is what I really want.”I agree with this and I will follow this.

      对于我来说,生活其实处处都充满了惊喜,遇到不幸没有什么好抱怨的,相比之下,记住那些不愉快的事情,还不如记住那些令我愉快的事情。揪着一些不令人不愉快的事不放,有可能会把自己变成另外一个人。外界怎么样,并不能改变我这个人的本质,追求我的内心就行。我看过一本书,里面有句话是这样讲的:“如果我觉得自己做的是对的,我不管跌倒几次,我都还会继续去做,毕竟你是我真心向往的。”我非常赞同这句话,我也会履行这句话。


602-Amy桂海欣感悟

Amy 602 




      What is life? Different people have different answers. As for me, life is the combination of everything. It involves materials, and also spirit, it is tangible, and also intangible. No matter good or bad, you have to face the life without escaping, or complaining about the destiny. You should try your best to bring sunshine into your mind as much as possible, so that you can live as plendid life. There is no perfection in the world, and all the so-called perfections are nothing but the results of your efforts. Please love your life for every minute and every day!

      什么是生活?不同的人有不同的答案。对我来说,生活是一切的结合。它涉及物质,也涉及精神,它是有形的,也是无形的。无论好坏,你必须直面生活,不逃避,也不抱怨命运。你应该尽力把阳光带进你的心灵,这样你才能过上美好的生活。世界上没有完美,所有所谓的完美只不过是你努力的结果。请爱你的生活的每一分钟和每一天!


701 -Angel李嘉琪感悟:

Angel-701李嘉琪





      This poem tells me how to love my life. No matter how bad your life is, there is always something for us to keep happy. Happiness can be found by ourselves. Even in a very bad situation, as long as you have a optimistic mind, you can find many good things that make you smile. Don’t complain about your life, you think your life is terrible, that just prove you are not grateful. One is not grateful will find fault even in a paradise. So, be grateful, at least you have your life. Live a happy life, be a happiness finder, not a sadness finder, or a complainer.

      这首诗告诉了我如何去热爱我的生活。不管我们的生活多糟糕,总会有一些事让我们快乐。幸福是我们自给自足的。只要你有一个积极向上的心态,无论情况多坏,你也可以找到让你开心的事情。不要去抱怨生活,抱怨只能证明你不懂得感恩。一个不懂得感恩的人,即使在天堂也不会幸福。所以,学会感恩,至少你还拥有你的生活。去过一个快乐的生活吧,做一个快乐的人,而不是成天消极抱怨的人。
