A Valuable Lesson

珍贵的一课

Compassion is a desire within us to help others. With effort, we can translate compassion into actions. An experience last weekend showed me this is true. I work part-time in a supermarket across from a building for the elderly. These old people are our main customers, and it’s not hard to lose patience over their slowness. But last Sunday, one aged gentleman appeared to teach me a valuable lesson. This untidy man walked up to my register with a box of biscuits. He said he was out of cash, had just moved into his room, and had nothing in his cupboards. He asked if we could let him have the food on trust. He promised to repay me the next day.

同情是在我们内心产生的帮助别人的欲望。经过努力,我们能够把同情转变为行动。上个周末的一次经历向我证明这话不假。当时我在—家敬老院对面的超市打工,那些老年人是我们的主要顾客,他们反应 迟缓,很容易使人失去耐心。但是上星期天,来了一位老爷爷,给我上了一堂珍贵的课。这个不修边幅的人走到我的收款机跟前,拿着一盒饼干,他说他现金用完了,刚刚搬进自己的房间,碗橱里啥也没有。他问我是否可以赊购食物,并答应我第二天付款。

I couldn’t help staring at him. I wondered what kind of person he had been ten or twenty years before, and what he would be like if luck had gone his way. I had a hurt in my heart for this kind of human soul, all alone in the world. I told him that I was sorry, but store rules didn’t allow me to do so. I felt stupid and unkind saying this, but I valued my job.

我不禁盯着他看起来。我不知道他在十年或二十年前是怎样的一个人,如果走运的话他会什么样。我内心对这类人有一种深深的同情,他们在世界上孤苦无依。我告诉他我很抱歉,商店的规矩不允许我这么做。我这么说,自己感到很傻,很不友善,但是我珍视我的工作。

Just then, another man, standing behind the first, spoke up. If anything, he looked more pitiable. "Charge it to me, " was all he said.

就在此时,站在他身后的一个男人说了话,那人看上去更加可怜。 “结在我的账上,”这就是他所说的一切。

What I had been feeling was pity. Pity is soft and safe and easy. Compassion, on the other hand, is caring in action. I thanked the second man but told him that was not allowed either. Then I reached into my pocket and paid for the biscuits myself. I reached into my pocket because these two men had reached into my heart and taught me compassion.

我一直感觉到怜悯。怜悯是柔和的,安全的,易为的。另一方面,同情则以实际行动表达关爱。我感谢了第二个人,告诉他那也是不允许的。然后,我把手伸进自己的口袋拿出钱来,付了饼干的款。我自掏腰包,因为这两个人打动了我的心弦,教会了我同情。
