Walking in the Air                         空中漫步
  We're walking in the air                       我们在空中漫步,
  We're floating in the 1)moonlit sky            在月光点亮的天空中飘浮。
  The 2)people far below are sleeping            在我们飞翔的时候,
  As we fly                                      人们还在梦乡中。
  I'm 4)holding very tight                       我抓得很紧,
  I'm riding in the 3)midnight blue              在午夜深蓝的天空中驰骋,
  I'm finding I can fly so high above with you   和你一起在这高高的天空中。
  Far across the world                           在遥远的天边,
  The villages go by like trees,                如做梦一般飞过村庄,
  The rivers and the hills                       河流,山川,
  The forest and the 5)streams                   森林和小溪。
  Children 6)gaze open mouthed                   睡眼朦胧的孩子张大嘴巴,
  7)Taken by surprise                            惊讶地看着我们飞过,
  Nobody down below believes their eyes          他们都不敢相信自己的眼睛。
  We're surfing in the air                       我们在天空中翱翔,
  We're swimming in the frozen sky               我们在清冷的夜空中畅游。
  We're drifting over icy mountains floating by  在冰雪覆盖的山顶滑翔。
  Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep         突然我们飞降到了海面上,
  Arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep    一个大妖怪从梦中惊醒。
  We're walking in the air                       我们在空中漫步,
  We're floating in the midnight sky             我们在午夜的天空飘游,
  And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly   每个看见我们的人都跟我们打招呼。


  What I Have Lived For
  Bertrand Russell
  Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither, in a wayward course, over a deep ocean of anguish, reaching to the verge of despair.
  I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy --- ecstasy so great that I would have sacrificed all the rest of life for a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, next, because it relieves loneliness --- that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness looks over the rim of the world into cold unfathomable lifeless abyss. I have sought it, finally, because in the union of love I have seen, in a mystic miniature, the prefiguring vision of the heaven that saints and poets have imagined. This is what I sought, and though it might seem too good for human life, this is what --- at last --- I have found.
  With equal passion I have sought knowledge. I have wished to understand the hearts of men, I have wished to know why the stars shine. And I have tried to apprehend the Pythagorean power by which number holds away above the flux. A little of this, but not much, I have achieved.
  Love and knowledge, so far as they were possible, led upward toward the heavens. But always pity brought me back to earth. Echoes of cries of pain reverberated in my heart. Children in famine, victims tortured by oppressors, helpless old people a hated burden to their sons, and the whole world of loneliness, poverty, and pain make a mockery of what human life should be. I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot, and I too suffer.
  This has been my life. I have found it worth living, and I would gladly live it again if the chance were offered to me.
  我寻找爱,首先,因为它令人心醉神迷,这种沉醉是如此美妙,以至于我愿意用余生来换取那几个小时的快乐。我寻找爱,其次是因为它会减轻孤独,置身于那种可怕的孤独中,颤抖的灵魂在世界的边缘,看到冰冷的、死寂的、无底深渊。我寻找爱,还因为在爱水乳交融时,在一个神秘的缩影中,我见到了先贤和诗人们所想象的、预览的天堂。 这就是我所追求的,尽管对于凡人来说,这好像是一种奢望。但这是我最终找到的。


  Failure doesn't mean you are a failure,It does mean you haven’t succeeded yet. Failure doesn’t mean you have accomplished nothing,It does mean you have learned something. Failure doesn’t mean you have been a fool,It does mean you had a lot of faith. Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been disgraced,It does mean you were willing to try. Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it,It does mean you have to do something in a different way. Failure doesn’t mean you are inferior,It does mean you are not perfect. Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your life,It does mean you have a reason to start afresh. Failure doesn’t mean you should give up,It does mean you must try harder. Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it,It does mean it will take a little longer. Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you,It does mean God has a better idea.
