Dear World : 
My son starts school today.It's going to be strange and new to him for a
while.And I wish you would sort of treat him gently.
亲爱的世界:
我的儿子今天就要上学读书。一时之间他会感觉新奇有趣,我但愿你能待他温柔些。

 

A <wbr>Mother's <wbr>Letter <wbr>to <wbr>the <wbr>World(一位母亲写给世界的信)

 

You see,up to now,he's been king of the roost.He's been boss of the back yard.
I have always been around to repair his wounds,and to soothe his feelings.
But now―things are going to be different.
你瞧,到现在为止,他一直是家中的宠儿,后院的王者。我总是忙着为他治疗伤口,
慰藉他的心情。但是现在不同了。


This morning,he’s going to walk down the front steps,wave his hand and
start on his great adventure that will probably include wars and tragedy
and sorrow.To live his life in the world he has to live in will require
faith and love and courage.
今天早晨,他就要走下门前的楼梯,冲我挥挥手,开始他的伟大历程。其间或许有争斗、
不幸或者伤痛。在世界上生存度日,他需要信念、爱心和勇气。

 

So,World,I wish you would sort of take him by his young hand and teach
him the things he will have to know.Teach him―but gently,if you can.
Teach him that for every scoundrel,there is a hero;that for every crooked
politician there is a dedicated leader;that for every enemy there is a friend.
Teach him the wonders of books.Give him quiet time to ponder the eternal mystery
of birds in the sky,bees in the sun,and flowers on the green hill.Teach him it
is far more honorable to fail than to cheat.Teach him to have faith in his own
ideas,even if everyone else tells him they are wrong.Teach him to sell his brawn
and brains to the highest bidder,but never to put a price on his heart and soul.
Teach him to close his ears to a howling mob...and to stand and fight if he
thinks he’s right.Teach him gently,World,but don’t coddle him,because only
the test of fire makes fine steel.

所以,世界啊,我希望你能够时不时握住他稚嫩的小手,教育他所应当知晓的事情。
教育他吧---如果可能的话,温柔一些。教他知道,没有恶人之地,必有豪杰所在;
没有奸诈小人,必有献身义士;每见一敌人,必有一友在侧。教他感受书本的神奇
魅力。给他时间静思大自然中亘古绵传的奥秘;空中的飞鸟,日光里的蜜蜂,青山上的
簇簇繁华。教他知道,失败远比欺骗更为光荣;教他坚定自我的信念,哪怕人人予以
否认;教他可以最高价付出自己的精力和智慧,但绝不可以出卖良心和灵魂;教他置
群氓的喧嚣与度外......并在自觉正确之时挺身而战。温柔地教导他吧,世界,但是
不要放纵他。因为只有烈火的考验才能炼出真钢铁。


This is a big order,World,but see what you can do.He's such a nice little fellow.
此要求诚为冒昧,世界,但是请尽你所能。他是一个如此可爱的小家伙。

母亲的名字:Anne Stone
