“……我虽然不富甲天下,却拥有无数个艳阳天和夏日”----亨利·大卫·梭罗Hour in the Sun John H.Bradley“…I was rich, if not in money, in sunny hours and summer days.”----- Henry David Thoreau.When Thoreau wrote that line, he was thinking of the Walden. Pond he knew as a boy.Woodchoppers and the Iron Horse had not yet greatly damaged the beauty of its setting. A boy could go to the pond and lie on his back against the seat of a boat, lazily drifting from shore to shore while the loons dived and the swallows dipped around him. Thoreau loved to recall such sunny hours and summer days “when idleness was the most attractive and productive business.”I too was a boy in love with a pond, rich in sunny hours and summer days. Sun and summer are still what they always were, but the boy and the pond changed. The boy, who is now a man, no longer find much time idle drifting. The pond has been annexed by a great city. The swamps where herons once hunted are now drained and filled with houses. The bay where water lilies quietly floated is now a harbor motor boats. In short, everything that the boy loved no longer exists----except in the man's memory of it.Some people insist that only today and tomorrow matter. But how much poorer we would be if we really lived by that rule! So much of what we do today is frivolous and futile and soon gotten. So much of what we hope to do tomorrow never happens.The past is the bank in which we store our most valuable possession the memories that give meaning and depth to our lives.Those who truly treasure the past will not bemoan the passing of the good old days, because days enshrined in memory are never lost. Death itself is powerless to still a remembered voice or erase a remembered smile. And one boy who is now a man, there is a pond which neither time nor tide can change, where he can still spend a quite hour in the sun. 1960Random1) Thoughts-PartyLast night,pressured by well-intentioned friends, the first time in months,I came out of writer’s seclusion and attended a cocktail party which is another word a social gathering.So there I was,trapped in a crowded room,people milling) all around me ,each with a drink in hand,chitchatting3) while the waiters skillfully negotiated) their way through the bustle with trays of colorful beverages and fancy hors d’oeuvres.It was definitely party time.Yet,instead of losing myself to the convivial5) surroundings of food,drink and conversations,I found myself retreating back into my head all the way to China where the subject of American sociality is of great interest.In China,many of my students are curious about how Americans party and have a good time."What do you do?Sing and dance?To what kind of music?""What’s American party talk?""How do you dress and act at a party?""How about food?What do you eat?" Every year,without fail,students ask their eign teachers to dedicate a full class to this fascinating topic.Of course,one would think that a subject as interesting and entertaining as such would make an excellent lesson plan,a rich source of discussions.But to my surprise,many teachers run into roadblocks when generating this particular lesson plan."Michelle,Michelle.I have to teach a class on American parties.And I only have,hmm,five things to say about it.And that’ll take about five minutes.What am I supposed to do after that?"They cry."Well,tell me what those five things a re,"I ask."Arrive late,talk,eat,drink,and have a blast."They blurt out.It is true that the five steps listed above encompass6) much of the goings-on at American social gatherings.Of course,during parties special occasions such asbirthdays,holidays,weddings,baby showers,anniversaries,graduations,etc.,there are additional ceremonies such ascake cutting,gift opening,dancing,toasting,game playing,etc.But regardless,the fundamentals of a typical American soiree7) are good company,good food and drinks,and good times.Sounds simply,doesn’t it?But if you were to look deeper and think further,you’ll realize that there’s far more to these steps than meets the eyes.FASHIONABLY LATE It is a major faux pas(social embarrassment )to arrive at a party early or even on time.Theree,with the exception of the hosts,you never wan t to be the first per-son present at a social function.Why?Because people fear that others may think that they have no life or nothing better to do than waiting a party t o start.Many Americans try to project an image of business which,whether true or not,has a positive correlation with success.So by arriving late,you are saying"I lead a full life and it' s exciting and productive." Theree,an 8o ’clock party customarily doesn’t really start until maybe 9o ’clock as everyone wants to be thought of as a busy and important person with lots to do.In other words,a party is one of those rare occasions where your punctuality can actually hurt you.Weird8),isn’t it.Anyhow,remember,be fashionably late.SMALL TALK One way of gauging9) the success of a party is by the noise meter.The louder the party is,the more happening it is,and the more fun people are having.Then you stop to wonder,if it’s so noisy,how can people really hear each other and have great,engaging conversations?The truth isThey don’t.They engage in small talk,which is another word casual,trivial conversations.They chew the fat,shoot the breeze an d swap anecdotes about random subjectswork,family,news,weather,hobbies,etc.Because the surrounding noise and activities often sidetrack people,it’s difficult to get personal or discuss any one topic at length or in depth.The point is to have fun,not to get serious. However,keep in mind that since people tend to be in good moods and spirit when attending a social function,parties often provide an excellent environment making new friends and establishing valuable business contacts.In fact,in many professions,important business transactions are initiated at a social event.People meet,have a nice chat,exchange inmation,and make a good impression.Sometime s that’s all it takes to begin a long-lasting friendship or business association.So never underestimate the power of small talk.FOOD FUN With the exception of dinner parties where a full meal is served,most parties offer finger foods --food that you pick up with your fingers.(So don’t worry,it is not impolite to eat with your hands at parties.)Some of the classic party foods are cheese and crackers,crudités(vegetables and dip),fruits,shrimp toasts,Swiss meat-balls,mini-sandwiches,shrimp cocktail,etc.And believe it or not,Asian foods are now in fashion.Mini egg rolls,Calinia sushi rolls and various dim sum dishes always add an exotic) flair to a party.And the Americans love it. Anyhow,party foods aren’t meant to be eaten as a meal.They are simply yummy accents t o the party and eaten to absorb all that alcohol you’re about to consume.So don’t pile too much food on your plate.Remember,you can always get refills.And one more thing,don’t talk with your mouth full.It’s rude.DRINK AND BE MERRY?Here’s a frequently used party acronym,BYOBBring Your Own Bottle.Alcohol plays a big part in most American parties.People drink to relax,unwind and enjoy themselves.Anyhow that's the way it should be. Untunately it’s not always the case and sometimes you sense the unspoken pressure to join the crowd.As a result,you feel out of place without a beverage in your hand.I even notice from observation that frequently the first thing people do upon arriving at a party is to hit the bar,kick off the night with a few drinks.Sometimes,there are even those,mostly young,w ho go to parties the sole purpose of getting drunk,trashed,plastered,totaled.Not a smart thing to do since we all know the effect alcohol can have on us.(People tend to talk loudly when they’re intoxicated which might explain why it’s so loud at parties.) In America,there’s definitely a negative association between drinking and partying.If you lose control of your drinking,you lose control of your partying,vise versa.As a result,drunks not only make a fool of themselves but their drunken behavior could endanger their safety and the safety of others.I suppose as with most things,moderation is the key.PARTY HEARTY At the end of the day,the objective of attending a party is to have an unadulterated good time.A blast...And how do you do that?You get in the spirit,go with the flow(but never do anything you are uncomtable with)and try not to be a party pooper.If you have fun at parties,you are probably fun to have at parties.As a result,people are more likely to invite you to their parties in the future.And that's definitely a good thing. As my mind wandered back to the party,I realized that I was standing alone,my stomach growling,my hands empty of a drink.I was being a total party pooper.So I quickly grabbed a drink(Diet Coke in this case)from the bar and snatched some of that delicious party food the waiter was bringing by.With a smile,I rejoined my friends.That night,we talked,we drank,we ate.We had ourselves a great time.by Michelle Chang 019566英语标语大全中英对照之“展览会物馆” -- :35:59 来源: Exhibition and Museum … are now free to everyone. …… 现免费向公众开放… will again be open to the public. …… 再次向公众开放Admission charge £ 门票 £镑Do not touch the exhibitsobjects勿触摸展品物品 Exhibition opening times: 开馆 Extended opening hours during August 八月延长开放时间Flash photograph is not permitted 不准用闪光灯拍照thcoming exhibitions 即将展出Open :30am - 6:00pm every day throughout the year 全年每天:3:00am - 6:00pm 开放Open 7 days a week 每周7天开放Photography and are not permitted inside the building 楼内不许拍照录像Ticket office 售票处 Unemployed, disabled, students and children free 失业者,残疾人,学生和儿童免费With access all day 全天开放 展览会 物馆 对照 中英

口语交流需要注意的地方 -- :35:59 来源:   知道少许咒骂的话有些用处,至少吵架的时候可以帮忙发泄,有益健康但要适可而止,有涵养的人当然不会总说,如果老是这样,别人会敬而远之的国内开玩笑,经常是越露骨越狠,越能显示哥们儿义气,对老外,千万不要说威胁生命的话,小心他们会当真,然后跑去告你类似“I will kill you.”(“我杀了你”或“你死定了”)千万别说,否则容易惹麻烦上身  老掉牙的词打住  类似于“How do you do.”这样的问候语在中国的课本中大行其道至今,很是害人,国际上几乎已经不用了同样,当别人问候你时“I'm fine. Thank you, and you?”这类呆板的回答也赶快咽回去吧目前欧美比较流行的日常问候语是“What's up?”你可以直接简单地回敬一个“What's up?”或者说“Nothing much.”如果是相熟的朋友,当别人问候的时候,也可以简单地聊几句近况类似的问候语还有“What's going on?”“How is it going? ”“How are you doing?”如果只是路人,直接回答“Nothing much.”即可  请求帮助时尊重被询者  “How to”是国人在请求帮助和询问时经常用的句式,这个用法的最大问题是把被询者忽略了,语法错误,而且不尊重被询者正确的说法应该是 “How do you drive a car?”“How do you get to the train station?”一定要尊重对方,把对方放在表达中另外,国人要务必注意 “th”和 “v”的发音,经常是你自以为发对了,其实你错了能发对这两个音的人其实为数不多 地方 注意 需要 交流

Most of us take life granted.We know that one day we must die, but usually we picture that day as far in the future.The days stretch out in an endless vista,so we go about our petty tasks, hardly aware of our listless attitude toward life.The same lethargy characterizes the use of all our faculties and senses.Only the deaf appreciate hearing, only the blind realize the manifold blessings that lie in sight.I have often thought it would be a blessing if each human being were stricken blind and deaf a few days at some time during his early adult life.Darkness would make him more appreciative of sight;silence would teach him the joys of sound.When walking the woods, I, who cannot see,find hundreds of things to interest me through mere touch.I feel the delicate symmetry of a leaf.I pass my hands lovingly about the smooth skin of a silver birch,or the rough, shaggy bark of a pine.In the spring I touch the branches of trees hopefully in search of a bud—the first sign of awakening Nature after her winter’s sleep.I feel the delightful, velvety texture of a flower,and discover its remarkable convolutions;and something of the miracle of Nature is revealed to me.Occasionally, if I am very tunate,I place my hand gently on a small tree and feel the happy quiver of a bird in full song.I am delighted to have the cool waters of a brook rush thought my open finger.To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass ismore welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.To me the pageant of seasons is a thrilling and unending drama,the action of which streams through my finger tips.If I can get so much pleasure from mere touch,how much more beauty must be revealed by sight.Suppose you set your mind to work on the problem of how you would use your own eyesif you had only three more days to see.If with the oncoming darkness of the third night you knew that the sun would never rise you again,how would you spend those three precious intervening days?What would you most want to let your gaze rest upon?I, naturally, should want most to see the thingswhich have become dear to me through my years of darkness.You, too, would want to let your eyes rest on the things that have become dear to youso that you could take the memory of them with you into the night that loomed bee you. 76

所以,请不要让别人偷走你的梦想,或者让他们对你说梦想太遥不可及“唱你的歌,做你的梦,给你的希望以希望,给你的祈祷以祈祷”The question was once asked of a highly successful businessman, "How have you done so much in your lifetime?"He replied, "I have dreamed. I have turned my mind loose to imagine what I wanted to do. Then I have gone to bed and thought about my dreams. In the night I dreamt about my dreams. And when I awoke in the morning, I saw the way to make my dreams real. While other people were saying, 'You can't do that, it is impossible,' I was well on my way to achieving what I wanted." As Woodrow Wilson, th President of the U.S., said "We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers."They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire on a long winter's evening. Some of us let these dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nourish them through bad days until they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.So please, don not let anyone steal your dreams, or try to tell you they are too impossible."Sing your songs, and dream your dreams, hope your hope and pray your prayer." 7378
