be enthusiastic!

from:Speak date:2016-05-25

Years ago, when I started looking for my first job, wise advisers urged, "Barbara, be enthusiastic! Enthusiasm will take you further than any amount of experience." How right they were. Enthusiastic people can turn a boring drive into an adventure, extra work into opportunity and strangers into friends.

多年前,当我第一次找工作时,不少明智之士强烈向我建议:“巴巴拉,要有热情!热情比任何经验都更有益。”这话多么正确,热情的人可以把沉闷的车程变成探险,把加班变成机会,把陌生人变成朋友。

"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is the paste that helps you hang in there when the going gets tough. It is the inner voice that whispers, "I can do it!" when others shout, "No, you can't."

“没有热情就不会有任何伟大的成就,”拉尔夫·沃尔多·爱默生写道。当事情进展不顺时,热情是帮助你坚持下去的粘合剂。当别人叫喊“你不行”时,热情是你内心发出的声音:“我能行。”

It took years and years for the early work of Barbara McClintock, a geneticist who won the 1983 Nobel Prize in medicine, to be generally accepted. Yet she didn't let up on her experiments. Work was such a deep pleasure for her that she never thought of stopping.

1983年诺贝尔医学奖的获得者,遗传学家巴巴拉·麦克林托克,她早年的工作直到很多年后才被公众所承认,但她并没有放弃实验。工作对她来说是一种如此巨大的快乐,她从未想过要停止它。

We are all born with wide-eyed, enthusiastic wonder as anyone knows who has ever seen an infant's delight at the jingle of keys or the scurrying of a beetle.

我们都生来好奇,睁大眼睛,满怀热情,每一个看到过婴儿听到钥匙声或看见乱爬的甲虫就兴奋不已的人都会明白这一点。

如果失去热情,灵魂也会起皱纹

It is this childlike wonder that gives enthusiastic people such a youthful air, whatever their age.

正是这种孩子气的好奇给了热情的人们(不论年龄大小)一种青春的气息。

At 90, cellist Pablo Casals would start his day by playing Bach. As the music flowed through his fingers, his stooped shoulders would straighten and joy would reappear in his eyes. Music, for Casals, was an elixir that made life a never ending adventure. As author and poet Samuel Ullman once wrote, "Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul."

大提琴家帕布罗·卡萨尔斯在90岁时还坚持以演奏巴赫开始他的每一天,音乐从他的指间流出,他弯着的背挺直起来,欢乐再度溢满他的眼眸。音乐对卡萨尔斯来说,是使人生变成无止境的探索之旅的灵丹妙药。就像作家兼诗人塞缪尔·厄尔曼曾写过的:“岁月使皮肤起了皱纹,但如果失去热情,便会使灵魂起皱纹。”
