Youth

青春

Youth is not entirely a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

青春并不完全是人生的一段时间,它是一种心境。青春不关乎什么红润面颊、樱桃红唇和灵便腿脚,它关乎意志的磨炼、富有想象力的素质和情感的充沛激昂,它是深深的生命之泉的清冽气息。

Youth means courage over timidity and the appetite of adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of sixty more than in a boy of twenty. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.

青春意味着勇气战胜胆怯,热衷冒险而不贪图安逸。这种特质常常存在于一个年过六旬的老人身上,而在一个年方二十的年轻人身上却看不到。我们并不因为年岁增长而变老,而是因为放弃了理想而变老。

Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and despair-these bow the heart and turn the spirit back to dust.

岁月可以使我们的皮肤起皱纹,而放弃热情则使我们的灵魂颓废。担忧、疑虑、自卑、恐惧、失望--这些都会伤害我们的心灵,使我们的精神萎靡不振。

Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being's heart the love of wonder, the sweet amazement at the stars and the star-like things, the undaunted challenge of events, the unfailing child-like appetite for what's next, and the joy of the game of living.

无论是六十岁还是十六岁,每个人的心中都充满着对未知事物的热爱,对群星甜美的惊叹,对人生世事不屈不挠的挑战精神,对未来所抱有的无尽的孩童般的憧憬,对人生游戏的愉悦感。

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.

满怀信心,你就年轻,心存疑虑,你就苍老;充满自信,你就年轻,忧虑恐惧,你就苍老;心存希望,你就年轻,悲观绝望,你就苍老。

In the central place of your heart there is a wireless station, so long as it receives message of beauty, hope, courage, grandeur and power from the earth, from man and from the Infinite, so long are you young.

你的内心深处有一个无线电台,只要它能够接收到来自地球、来自人类、来自宇宙的关于美、希望、勇气、高贵和力量的信号,你就永远年轻。

When the wires are all down, and all the central places of your heart are covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and only then, are you grown old indeed.

当所有的信息都隔绝于耳,当你的心灵全都被悲观和愤世嫉俗的冰雪所覆盖,那时,也只在那时,你才真的老了。

By Samuel Ullman
