享受了听力,提高了英语,还了解了人生真谛!Once a circle missed a wedge. the circle wanted to be whole, so it went around looking for its missing piece. but because it was incomplete and therefore could roll only very slowly, it admired the flowers along the way. it chatted with worms. it enjoyed the sunshine. it found lots of different pieces, but none of them fit. so it left them all by the side of the road and kept on searching.

有次一个圆轮失去了一小块,它想成为一个完整的轮子,因此它四处去寻找失落的那片。但由于它不全,所以滚动的很慢,以致于可以沿路欣赏花儿,与虫子聊天,享受阳光。它发现很多小块,但都不适合它自己,因此它把这些小块扔在路边,继续寻找。

Then one day the circle found a piece that fit perfectly. it was so happy. now it could be whole, with nothing missing. it incorporated the missing piece into itself and began to roll. now that it was a perfect circle, it could roll very fast, too fast to notice the flowers of talking to the worms.

When it realized how different the world seemed when it rolled so quickly, it stopped, left its found piece by the side of the road and rolled slowly away.
      然后终于有一天圆轮发现了一片能完美拼接的小块。它很高兴,因为它可以完美了,没有缺失了。它把这一小块塞到自己身上,成为一个整体后开始滚动。现在它是个完美的轮子了,因此滚动得很快,太快以致于没法欣赏花朵,与虫儿聊天。

但它意识到世界由于它滚动太快所发生的变化之后,它停止了。把那一小块留在路边,继续缓慢的滚动。。。
       The lesson of the story, i suggested, was that in some strange sense we are more whole when we are missing something. the man who has everything is in some ways a poor man.

He will never know what it feels like to earn, to hope, to nourish his soul with the dream of something better. he will never know the experience of having someone who loves him give him something he has always wanted or never had.

这个故事的寓意,我认为,在于某种程度上说,当我们有所缺失时我们会更完美。尽善尽美的人实际上也挺可怜的。因为他体会不到获得的感受,希望的感觉,灵魂由于渴望一些更加美好事物时所获得的滋养。他将不会体验到爱他的人给他一些他总是想要或者不曾拥有的事物。(这句不知道翻译的好不好。。。)

     There is a wholeness about the person who has come to terms with his limitations, who has been brave enough to let go of his unrealistic dreams and not feel like a failure for doing so. There is a wholeness about the man or woman who has learned that he or she is strong enough to go through a tragedy and survive, she can lose someone and still feel like a complete person.

    有一种完整是一个人认识到了自己的能力有限,并且足够勇敢的舍弃自己不现实的梦想,并且不会因此而有挫败感。有一种完整是男男女女已经学会坚强的足以克服灾难并幸存下来,他可以失去某些东西而仍然感觉自己是一个完整的人。

        Life is not a trap set for us by god so that he can condemn us for failing.life is not a spelling bee, where no matter how many words you’ve gotten right, you’re disqualified if you make one mistake. life is more like a baseball season, where even the best team loses one-third of its games and even the worst team has its days of brilliance. our goal is to win more games than we lose.

       生活不是上天给我们设置的陷阱,以便他可以因为失败谴责我们。生活也不是打字比赛,无论你打对了多少字,也会因为犯了一个错误而被除名。生活更像一个足球赛季,即使最好的队伍也会失去3分之1的比赛,即使最差的队伍也有辉煌的一天,我们的目标是赢得要比输得多。

       When we accept that imperfection is part of being human, and when we can continue rolling through life and appreciate it, we will have achieved a wholeness that others can only aspire to. that, i believe, is what god asks of us---not “be perfect”, not “don’t even make a mistake”, but “be whole.”

      当我们接受了不完整向来都是人生一部分的时候,当我们继续经历生活并感激它的时候,我们才能够获得别人所渴望的那种完整。我想,这才是上天要求我们所做到的,不要去乞求完美,不要去乞求不要犯错,而是真正意义上成为一个完整的人!
