A farmer had been seriously ill for a long time and now was on his deathbed. He wanted his children to acquire some experience of farming (1). 一个农夫长期病重,现在快要死了。他要他的孩子们学些农活技术。

 

   He summoned them to him and said (2): 他把孩子们叫到他身边,说道:


   “My children, I am not long for this world. But , as for you, look for what I have hidden in my vineyard and you will find all.”
“孩子们,我在世的日子不多了。但是,你们呢,可以去葡萄园寻找我埋藏在那儿的东西,你们会找到所有东西的。”

 

   The children, therefore, imagined that their father had buried a treasure in some corner of his vineyard. They hoed deeply all of the ground in it as soon as their father died. 因此,孩子们想象着:他们的父亲在葡萄园的某个角落里埋藏有财宝。他们的父亲刚咽气,他们便把园子里的所有土地深翻了一遍。

 

   They found no treasure. But the vineyard gave its fruits many times more as it had been well tended. 他们没有发现财宝。但是,由于葡萄园得到了精心管理,园子结出葡萄多了好几倍。

 

   Labor returns into a ring. 耕耘就有收获

Notes:

1.  He wanted his children to acquire some

  experience of farming .

   句中的acquire表示“获得,取得”,多含有“慢慢地或渐渐地”的意思。在本

   文中,强调不断地积累。再比如:He assiduously acquired a fine collection of

   impressionist paintings. (他持之以恒,收集了一套印象派的画。)与它同义的get

   表示“得到”时,最一般,最常用,既可指强取,也可指消极地接受。比如:

   Finally he got what he wanted from his brother. (最后,他从他的哥哥那儿得到

   了他要的东西。)/ He had got a cold. (他感冒了。)

2.   He summoned them to him …

句中的谓语动词summon的宾语常是表人的名词,后面再接介词to,表示“召唤某人到某处” ;再接介词from,表示“从某处召唤某人”。比如:The bell summoned everyone to the dining hall. (铃声将大家召唤到食堂去。)/ I was summoned from the office by my boss. (老板把我从办公室召去。)
