The Big Ship

大船

Ernest looked at his fleet of ships. Usually, he used them for his firm, which imported marble statues from other countries. But today he was going fishing. And the ship he chose was his favorite. It had an elaborate painting on the side that showed a naval battle. It also had some new updates to its computer system. His favorite ship's latest acquisition was a device with a small grid to show the ship's exact location. This new accessory kept Ernest from getting lost.

欧内斯特看着他的船队。通常他用这些船来运输公司从其他国家进口的大理石雕像。但是今天他要去钓鱼,他选择了最喜欢额一艘船。船身上有一幅精美的油画,描绘的是一场海战。这艘船的计算机系统也做了一些更新。他最喜欢的这艘船的最新装备是一个带有小网格的设备,可以显示这艘船的确切位置,使欧内斯特不至于迷路。

At daybreak, Ernest happily sailed the temperate waters until he was far from land. Then he saw a small boat in the distance. There was an old man standing next to its mast. He was waving his arms in the air. There was also a boy with his head hanging over the boat's edge. Ernest inferred that the boy was suffering from nausea. Both of their clothes were saturated with sea water. Ernest assumed that they were in trouble. Most people never realized, but Ernest had an innate desire to help people. He began sailing toward them, eager to facilitate their rescue and thus solve their dilemma.

黎明时,欧内斯特愉快地航行在温带水域,直到远离陆地。然后他看到远处有一只小船,船上桅杆旁边站着一位老人。老人在空中挥舞着双臂。船上还有一个头垂在船边的男孩。欧内斯特推断那个男孩可能是晕船了。他们二人的衣服都被海水浸湿了。欧内斯特推断他们可能遇到了麻烦。大多数人从未意识到,但欧内斯特有一种与生俱来的帮助别人的欲望。他开始向他们驶去,急于帮助他们获救,从而解决他们的困境。

As he got closer to the boat, he was shocked by its simplicity. The boat's wood looked no stronger than cardboard, and the equipment was old. Still, there were several large fish in a pouch in the boat.

靠近那艘船时,他被它的简朴惊呆了。船上的木头看起来和硬纸板一样不结实,设备也很陈旧。尽管如此,船上的袋子里还是装着几条大鱼。

Ernest threw a large package onto the boat. He yelled, "Here! You can inflate this boat to get you back to land."

欧内斯特把一个大包裹扔到船上。他喊道,“给你!你可以用这个给船充气,然后回到岸上。”

Get out of here! screamed the old man.

“滚开!”老人尖叫着。

Ernest was confused. "Don't you need help?" he asked. "Your ship doesn't seem adequate enough to sail so far away from land."

欧内斯特很困惑。“你不需要帮助吗?”“你的船似乎不够开到离陆地这么远的地方。”

You've just scared away a huge fish, the boy said. "We waved to let you know you were too close to us."

“你吓走了一条大鱼,”男孩说。“我们挥手是想让你知道你离我们太近了。”

Ernest turned around and headed home. He learned that it's better not to help unless asked to. Otherwise, you might not help anyone at all.

欧内斯特转身回家。他明白了一个道理,那就是除非别人要求,不然最好不要帮忙。否则,你可能帮不到任何人。
