海伦凯勒自传《我的生活》:第106期

发表时间:2017-09-15内容来源:VOA英语学习网
The words desCRIbe so exactly the atmosphere of jostling, tumbling ideas I live in that I will wink at them for once, and put on a deliberate air to say that my ideas of college have changed. 如果用十分准确的语言来描述我的生存环境,那么,面对磕磕绊绊、四处冲撞的思想意识,我会这样说:我已经对它们视而不见,而且,我还要故作深沉地说,我已经完全转变了对大学的看法。 While my days at Radcliffe were still in the future, they were encircled with a halo of romance, which they have lost; but in the transition from romantic to actual I have learned many things I should never have known had I not tried the experiment. One of them is the precious science of patience, which teaches us that we should take our education as we would take a walk in the country, leisurely, our minds hospitably open to impressions of every sort. Such knowledge floods the soul unseen with a soundless tidal wave of deepening thought. "Knowledge is power." Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge—broad, deep knowledge—is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heart-throbs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life. 我在拉德克利夫学院的学习生涯仍处在来日方长的(起步)阶段,但是浪漫的光环已然褪去。从浪漫到现实的转变过程中,我所获颇丰,可以说,如果没有实践经验,你永远也不会了解到事物的真谛。在诸多经验之中,最宝贵的就是关于“忍耐的学问”。“忍耐”教给我们这样一种求学心态——我们应该把接受教育的过程视做一次乡间散步,从容不迫之间,我们的思想就会敞开胸怀,尽情地接纳天地万物。这样求得的知识犹如一波无声的思想潮汐,将我们的灵魂悄然浸润。“知识就是力量”固然正确,但是,知识更应该是愉快的,因为要拥有知识——特别是广博、深奥的知识——就需要我们具备去芜存真、点石成金的本事。了解人类进步过程中的思想和行为,你就会触摸到几个世纪以来最伟大的人性脉搏;如果你感觉不到脉搏的律动和爬向天国的脚步,那么你一定是个对生命的和弦充耳不闻之辈。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20170915/494249.html
