The flame of love 爱的火焰

[不指定 07/10/16 21:59 | by admin ]
     拥有了一份好的工作、一个好的身体、一笔大大的财富,但你仍然感受不到幸福快乐?这是为什么?答案只有一个字,爱。没有爱的人生好比没有灵魂的躯体。

爱给予了生活的意义。幸运的人得到爱并能让那爱的火花永远燃烧,这不是一天或几个月的事。爱是生活,生活也是爱......

Suppose you have everything; a good job, good health, good reputation, good relationships and lot of money to spend. But still there is something missing from your life. Guess what? The LOVE. It is not something which you should ignore. Life without love is just like body without soul.

Love gives meaning to life as without love life is meaningless. Lucky is the person who gets love and keeps the flames of love burning for ever. It is not a matter of days or months. Love is for life and life is for love.

Short term love encounters are not helpful at all. Be sincere with your body and soul. Indulge in serious life long loving relationship and live a healthy, happy and joyful life.

It is easy to fell in love but difficult to keep the flames of love burning. Before indulging in serious long term love relationships be sure that the person you love is also sincere with you. A selfish person can make your life miserable. If this is the case with you then try to get rid of that person as soon as possible.

Most people do not give importance to their love life as they give importance to their professional life. In most cases, people sacrifice their love life at the cost of their profession. This is a bad choice which ruins the whole life. A sensible balance between the two is necessary in order to enjoy life in its entirety. Do not deprive yourself of the love you need.

People part their ways after living together for years and years. Though this looks strange but is the obvious result of ignoring the genuine complaints and grievances of the other. Sometimes a sincere apology, gentle touch, or a friendly kiss is enough to put your love life on track. However, when deep differences develop between the two then professional consultation is necessary. Do everything to bring back love to your life, if it is lost.

In order to make the journey of life more exciting and enjoyable, you need a loving and caring person with whom you can share your values, dreams, fantasies, joys and jokes. In difficult times of anxiety, sorrow, distress or loss of near and dear ones this person should stand firm besides you and console you in every possible manner.

Love your life and love the person who is in your life. Keep the flames of love burning to live a great, great love life.

Discuss this article with your loved one and carefully listen what he/she says. This can give you a clue of his/her inner sentiments and the depth of love for you. Also avail this opportunity to renew your love life with a new passion and commitment.

自由飞翔 Free to soar

[不指定 07/10/16 21:58 | by admin ]
上天让我经历逆境,体验束缚的滋味,并定下规则约束我们,让我们从中成长起来,获得人生的力量……

One windy spring day, I observed young people having fun using the wind to fly their kites. Multicolored creations of varying shapes and sizes filled the skies like beautiful birds darting and dancing. As the strong winds gusted against the kites, a string kept them in check.

Instead of blowing away with the wind, they arose against it to achieve great heights. They shook and pulled, but the restraining string and the cumbersome tail kept them in tow, facing upward and against the wind. As the kites struggled and kept them in tow, facing upward and against the wind. As the kites struggled and trembled against the string, they seemed to say,” Let me go! Let me go! I want to be free!” they soared beautifully even as they fought the restriction of the string. Finally, one of the kites succeeded in breaking loose. “Free at last,” it seemed to say. “Free to fly with the wind.”

Yet freedom from restraint simply put it at the mercy of an unsympathetic breeze. It fluttered ungracefully to the ground and landed in a tangled mass of weeds and string against a dead bush. ”Free at last”, free to lie powerless in the dirt, to be blown helplessly along the ground, and to lodge lifeless against the first obstruction.

How much like kites we sometimes are. The heaven gives us adversity and restrictions, rules to follow from which we can grow and gain strength. Restraint is a necessary counterpart to the winds of opposition. Some of us tug at the rules so hard that we never soar to reach the heights we might have obtained. We keep part of the commandment and never rise high enough to get our tails off the ground.

Let us each rise to the great heights, recognizing that some of the restraints that we may chafe under are actually the steadying force that helps us ascend and achieve.

Parents

If it was going to easy, it never would have started with something called labor!

Shouting to make your children obey is like using the horn to steer your car, and you get about the same results.

To be in your children’s memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today.

The smartest advice on raising children is to enjoy them while they are still on your side.

The best way to keep kids at home is to give it a loving atmosphere and hide the keys to the car.

The right temperature in a home is maintained by warm hearts, not by hot heads.

Parents: People who bare infants, bore teenagers, and board newlyweds.

The joy of motherhood : What a woman experiences when all the children are finally in bed.

Life’s garden age is when the kids are too old to need baby-sitters and too young to borrow the family car.

Grandparents are similar to a piece of string-handy to have around and easily wrapped around the fingers of grandchildren.

A child outgrows your lap, but never outgrows your heart.

God gave you two ears and one mouth…so you should listen twice as much as you talk.

There are three ways to get something done: Do it yourself, hire someone to do it, or forbid your children to do it.

Adolescence is the age when children try to bring up their parents.

Cleaning your house while your kids are at home is like trying to shovel the driveway during a snowstorm.

Oh, to be only half as wonderful as my child thought I was when he was small, and half an stupid as my teenager now thinks I am.

There are only two things a child will share willingly: communicable diseases and his mother’s age.

Money isn’t everything , but it sure keeps the kids in touch.

Adolescence is the age at which children stop asking questions because they know all the answers.

An alarm clock is a device for awakening people who don’t have small children.

No wonder kids are confused today. Half the adults tell them to find themselves; the other half tell them to get lost.

People hardest to convince that it’s time for retirement are children at bedtime.

Kids really brighten a household; they never turn off any lights

美国人幽默的电话留言

[不指定 07/10/15 12:52 | by admin ]
     美国家庭中的电话机一般都有留言提示功能,也就是当电话没人接时,电话会自动播放一段提示,内容通常是:“抱歉,家里没人,请您听到‘嘟'的一声之后,将您的姓名与电话号码留下来,我回家之后,马上给您回电话。”由于这样的提示过于平淡,许多美国人都自己编写来电提示。

Hi. I am probably home. I'm just avoiding someone I don't like. Leave me a message, and if I don't call back, it's you.

嗨,我可能在家里,但我不想给我讨厌的人回电话。请留言吧。如果我没有给您回电话,那么您就是我讨厌的那个人

Please leave a message. However, you have the right to remain silent. If you give up the right, everything you say will be recorded and will be used by us.

请您留言。当然,您有权保持沉默。如果您放弃这个权利,那么您说的每句话都将被记录在案,并且将被我们所利用。

Thank you for calling us. If you wish to speak to Mike, push 1, to Cathie, push 2, to Alex, push 3, to Doggie, push 4. All of this button pushing doesn't do anything, but it makes you feel like we have a big time phone system.

谢谢您给我们打电话。如果您想找Mike (我本人),请按1,找Cathie (我老婆),请按2,找Alex (我儿子),请按3,找Doggie (我家小狗),请按4。其实不管您按哪个钮,结果都一样(我们家只有一部电话,并没有分机),但这会让您感觉,我们家里好像有一台很大的电话交换机。

十二生肖如何用英语表达

[不指定 07/10/03 11:20 | by admin ]
     生肖”是代替十二地支、用来表示人们出生的12种动物,即鼠、牛、虎、兔、龙、蛇、 马、羊、猴、鸡、狗、猪。如寅年出生的人属虎,卯年出生的人属兔。“生肖”也就是俗 话说的“属相”,是中国人特有的一种表示出生时间的方式,相当于西方的黄道十二星座 (双鱼座、白羊座、金牛座、双子座、巨蟹座、狮子座、室女座、天秤座、天蝎座、人马 座、摩羯麻、宝瓶座)。

  英语中,当谈个人出生的属相时,表达为“What animal sign were you born under ?你 属什么?I was born in the year of the Cock / Mine is the Coak.我属鸡。”十二生 肖的12种动物在汉语中只有一个:鼠:Rat,牛:Ox,虎:Tiger,兔:Hare,龙:Dragon ,蛇:Snake,马:Horse,羊:Sheep,猴:Monkey,鸡:Cock,狗:Dog,猪:Boar。 汉语中,人们往往以十二生肖中的动物来比喻人,即把不同(性格、特征、习性等)的人 比作动物,如常以“毒如蛇蝎”,“笨猪”、“胆小如鼠”来比喻心毒手辣的人、笨人、 胆小怯懦的人等。英语中同样可用十二生肖中的动物喻人,其所表达的意思更加广泛而有 趣。现简述如下:

  一. 鼠——Rat

  英语中用以比喻讨厌鬼,可耻的人,告密者,密探,破坏罢工的人;美国俚语指新学生、下流女人。

  当看到smell a rat这一词组时,是指人们怀疑在做错某事。a rat race则表示激烈的竞争 。rats desert a sinking ship(船沉鼠先逃,这一谚语意指那些一遇到危险就争先寻求 安全或一看见困难便躲得老远的人。)

  二. 牛——Ox

  涉及“牛”的汉语成语很多,如“对牛弹琴”、“牛蹄之涔”等。英语中涉及“Ox”的表 达方式则不多。用Ox - eyed形容眼睛大的人;用短语The black Ox has trod on sb’s foot表示灾祸已降临到某人头上。


  三. 虎——Tiger

  指凶恶的人,虎狼之徒;英国人指穿制服的马夫;口语中常指比赛的劲敌。中国和东南亚 国家常以Paper tiger比喻貌似强大而实质虚弱的敌人。词组ride the tiger表示以非常不 确定或危险的方式生活。

  四. 兔——Hare

  在英国俚语中,hare指坐车不买票的人。与hare组成的词组有:make a hare of sb.愚弄 某人。start a hare。在讨论中提出枝节问题。

  例如:You start a hare ever time at the meeting.每次讨论你都提出与题无关的问题。

  英语中有许多关于兔的谚语,如:

  1. First catch your hare.勿谋之过早(意指:不要过于乐观)。

  2. You cannot run with the hare and hunt with hounde.不能两面讨好(意指:不要耍 两面派)。

  五. 龙——Dragon

  龙在中国人民的心目中占有崇高的位置,有关龙的成语非常多,且含有褒义。如“龙跃凤 鸣”、“龙骧虎步”等。在外国语言中,赞扬龙的词语非常之少,且含有贬义。如“drago n”指凶暴的人,严厉的人,凶恶严格的监护人,凶恶的老妇人(尤指很少给在其看管下姑 娘自由的老妇人)等。以dragon组成的词组也多含贬义。如dragon’s teeth :相互争斗 的根源;排列或多层的楔形反坦克混克混凝土障碍物。the old Dragon:魔鬼。

  六. 蛇——Snake

  指冷酷阴险的人,虚伪的人,卑鄙的人;美国俚语指追求和欺骗少女的男子或男阿飞。由 此看到,在英语中,“snake”往往含有贬义。如:

  John’s behavior should him to be a snake.约翰的行为表明他是一个冷酷阴险的人。

  与snake组成的成语习语、谚语有许多,简举几例:

  a snake in the grass.潜伏的敌人或危险。

  to warm a snake in one’s bosom.养虎贻患,姑息坏人。Takd heed of the snake in the grass.草里防蛇。
