What is Life?

生活是什么——美文欣赏

One lovely summer’s day, around noon, there was a deep stillness over all tile forest. The birds had tucked their heads under their wings, and everything was at rest.

   Then a bullfinch popped his head up and asked, 'What is life?'

Everyone was struck by this profound question.

   A rose was just emerging from her bud, and was opening up one

shy petal after another, rejoicing in the newly discovered sunlight.

'Life is a Becoming,' she said.

   The butterfly was less philosophical. He flew blithely from one

flower to another, snacking everywhere on the delicious nectar. “Life is pure pleasure and sunshine,” he announced.

   Down on the ground, an ant was laboring under the weight of a piece of straw ten times his size. He said, “Life is nothing but toil and sweat and strain.”

   There might have been quite an argument about the meaning of

life, had not a fine rain begun to fall, and the rain spoke: “Life consists of tears, nothing but tears.”

   High above the forest, an eagle swooped, making majestic  curves in the sky. “Life”, spoke the eagle, “is a constant striving upwards.”

   Night fell and soon a man came staggering home from a party.

“Life”, he complained, “is a constant search for happiness, and a

string of disappointments.”

   After the long, dark night, at last dawn came, rising pink on the

eastern skyline. “Just as I, the dawn, am the start of the new da;; so

life is the beginning of eternity.”

       

 生活是什么?

 

夏季的一天,大约正午的样子,晴空万里,森林一片沉寂。鸟把头伸到翅膀下面,万物静谧。

一只红腹麻雀探出头来,问,“生活是什么?这个深奥的问题触动了每一个人。

玫瑰花绽开花蕾,花瓣一片一片羞答答地展开;一看见阳光后陶醉其中。“生活,就是新生。”她说。

蝴蝶没玫瑰花那样懂得哲理。她无忧无虑,从一朵花飞到另一朵,尝遍美味的花蜜。“生活就是快乐,生活充满阳光。”他宣称。

地上,一只蚂蚁费力地背着一片草爬着,草比他大九倍。他说,“生活中只有辛勤、汗水和压力。”

倘不是一场雨开始落下,可能会有一场关于生活意义的讨论。雨说话了:“生活由泪水组成,只有泪水。”

森林上方,鹰击长空,盘旋飞翔,气势壮观。“生活,”鹰说,“是不断地向上奋力拼搏。”

    夜幕降临,一个人参加宴会后跌跌撞撞地回家。“生活,”他抱怨,“是不断地探求幸福,然后是接二连三的失败。”

漫长黑夜之后,黎明终于来临,东方的天空露出粉红的轮廓。“就像我,黎明,是新的一天的开始,生活是永恒的开端。”
