我深信一个人要想在这世上留下些什么,不一定非得成为贝多芬或是伦勃朗,或是生儿育女确切地说,这并非一则信条,也不完全是个人奋斗的目标——或许有人觉得是吧?不管怎样,倘若在我死后,我在指挥台上的浮沉得失能让我像马克西那样永远活在大家的心中,那我就不负此生了 Maxis's Recipe Happiness by Meredith Willson I guess the creed of all human beings embraces the desire to leave their mark on the moral world, when they pass to the immortal one. Maybe this is even the strongest of all urges of the human soul. Many men feel a fervent need to leave a son to carry on their name; noncreative people envy the Shakespeares and the Beethovens, as draftsmen envy the Frank Lloyd Wrights, and as the commercial artist envies the Rembrandts and the Raphaels. Maybe it's this kind of frustration that caused Henry Thoreau to remark, "the mass of men live lives of quiet desperation." Well, I had a friend by the name of Max Terr. And Max taught me that genius is by no means an essential escape from this "quiet desperation." Max had been associated with me as choral director the past twenty years or so. Max was interested in almost everything; and considering that he was also a perfectionist, his interest was always a very intense one - even if it was only in a pencil. Being a composer and orchestrator, he was constantly writing at the piano and he could see no reason to live with a clumsy pencil or a bad light, so he puttered and he searched until he found a graceful, dependable, thoroughtly efficient pencil and a fine light his work, completely comtable and satisfactory in every respect. Now, Max very casually included his friends in this continuous research of his, and no one knew Max ever took any of his suggestions lightly. Since Max has gone, not a day passes that isn't a pleasanter day because of the things he left behind him. I have his particular kind of pencil in every pocket of every suit, on the desk, on the right table and on the piano. Couldn't live without 'em. I have the light with the flexible stand Maxie insisted I buy, so I no longer strain my eyes. We have the world's greatest cookies at our house which Max sent one Christmas, after shopping all over town to find the best items to include in a basket us. He found the cookies in a little shop as only he could patiently unearth such things. Now all our friends keep them around all the time. They call them "Maxie's cookies" without ever having met Max Terr. "Tristram Shandy", Max told me one day, "is an old story with a tremendously inventive style. You like to write in the experimental ms. You have to that book ... it'll give you a lot of courage in doing things your own way" - and it sure did. Another day, he said, "The colors in your music room make it difficult to have just the right kind of a picture in there, but you know, Meredith, I picked up a print in a little art store that I think will just do the trick. Here it is. Take a look at it - didn't cost hardly anything either." In every room of our apartment there are memories of Max Terr. And lots of our friends swear by his patiently discovered items, passing them along to their friends ... praising "Maxie's cookies," "Maxie's music paper," "Maxie's pencils and piano light" without ever having known Max Terr. So I guess I believe pretty firmly that you don't have to be a Beethoven or a Rembrandt, or even a father, to leave a heritage to the mortal world. This is not a creed, exactly, nor is it a complete personal objective - or is it? Anyhow, I think if I leave behind me any part of the kind of things that keep Max Terr alive in the hearts of his fellow, I will have justified my brief hour of strutting and fretting upon the stage. 990。

  • 你只会用Happy吗?快乐的5个地道表达 -- :01: 来源:   On Cloud Nine  等同于“blissful happiness”充满喜悦的幸福感  从世纪80年到现在,'cloud nine'的用法已经变得十分普遍,多亏了流行音乐的传播——乔治·哈里森将其作为1987年专辑的名字  When I got my promotion, I was on cloud nine. When the check came, I was on cloud nine days. 当我得知自己晋升了,我真是开心极了当知道这一切尘埃落定,我几天都乐翻了天  (Be)in Seventh Heaven  七重天来源于伊斯兰教和神秘的犹太传统七重天指的是神和天使居住的天国的最高层,那是个尽善尽美、幸福快乐的地方,身处七重天会得到极度的满足、快乐  7同时被西方人看作是幸运数字,能够快乐幸福当然是幸运的  Since they got married, they've been in seventh heaven. 他们结婚了以后一直过得很幸福很快乐  Walk on Air  来自水果(Katy Perry)同名单曲《Walking on Air(弥天大误)  《Walking on Air水果现场版看这里:  比喻型的词组,也是从字面上理解有两种含义其一,就是纯粹的高兴,开心,心情愉悦(to be euphoric);其二,兴高采烈到有点得意洋洋的感觉  a) When I found out my parents were getting me a kitten Christmas, I was walking on air the rest of the day. 当我发现我爸妈圣诞节给我买了一只小猫咪当作礼物,剩下的这几天我一直乐不思蜀  b) She was walking on air after she found out she'd won the teaching award. 当她得知自己获了教学奖后一直乐的飘飘然  Over the moon  这个词能“火起来”都归功于利物浦街头足球的流行:当球员踢球踢的很重(好像都要踢到月亮上去了),就会用到“over the moon”这会让观众看得兴致勃勃情绪高涨  词源来自《鹅妈妈童谣集中的《High Diddle Diddle——其中一头奶牛跳过了月亮  I am over the moon at this moment. 现在我好开心  Tickled Pink  很简单,从字面上来理解即可当有人挠你痒痒的时候,你一定会咯咯笑,一边笑,你的脸就红了  She was tickled pink after receiving her present. 收到她的礼物后她高兴极了 地道。
  • 当你从事于你热忠的业余爱好并忘记了时间的飞逝时,你已经深触到了你的灵魂当你聆听艺术家美妙的音乐而感动得落泪时,你了解了你的灵魂There is a place deep within each one of us that is peaceful and serene. This place is known as your Essence... If you've ever wondered what it feels like to connect with your Essence I'll give you a hint right here at Faith Radio Online-Simply to Relax, I’m Faith. As a matter of fact, you've been there many times. You experience your Essence when you witness a beautiful sunset over the ocean... that feeling of being lost in the horizon as time stands still. Or when you sit quietly in meditation and feel your mind letting go... surrendering into the space between your thoughts. You've touched your Essence when you blissfully engage in your favorite hobby and suddenly you've lost track of time. You've known your Essence when you've been moved to tears from listening to an artist compose music. You've experienced your Essence when you've listened to your Intuition and something purposeful has occurred because you trusted yourself. You’re listening to Faith Radio Online-Simply to Relax, and I’m Faith. One of the most rewarding aspects of connecting to your Essence is the feeling of deep inner peace. It's a feeling so unique unto itself and you know you wouldn't trade it anything. Spirituality is an inner fire, a mystical sustenance that feeds our souls. The mystical journey drives us into ourselves, to a sacred flame at our center. The purpose of the religious experience is to develop the eyes by which we see this inner flame, and our capacity to live its mystery. In its presence, we are warmed and ignited.。
  • Spring SongSpring is coming, spring is coming,Birdies, build your nest;Weave together straw and feather,Doing each your best.Spring is coming, spring is coming,Flowers are coming tooPansies, lilies, daffodillies,Now are coming thoughtSpring is coming, spring is coming,All around is fair,Shimmer and quiver on the river,Joy is everywhere.By William Blake 899。
  • “天儿真好”怎么说 -01-7 00::1 来源: 入夏了,温度越来越高,但还没高到让人难以忍受,可以说现在正是一年中难得的好气候呢要表达"天儿真好"该怎么说?下面就来告诉你1. What is the weather like out there?外面的天气如何?要问别人外面的天气如何,最简单的问法就是:"What's the weather like out there?" 或是我们可以用一个很简单的 it 来代表天气,比如:"What's it like out there?" 如果你不喜欢用 What 来作问句,你也可以简单地说:"How is the weather out there?"但是如果我们想问别人未来的某一个时间会不会出太阳或是会不会下雨,例如我想问人家"星期一会下雨吗?",像这种情况我们就可以说:"Is it supposed to rain on Monday?" 这里用到了一个 be suppose to 的片语,这种讲法是老美最喜欢的再比方说吧,如果我们假设明天有什么活动,我们常常会要求别人先看看明天会不会出太阳或下雨,这种情况老美他们会说:"Why don't you check and see if it's sunny tomorrow?" (你何不看看明天会不会是晴天?) 把 see if it's sunny 改成 see if it's going to rain 就变成了"看看会不会下雨". It's a beautiful day.今天天气很好老美都是怎么形容"天气很好"的呢? 通常他们会用 beautiful,nice 或是 lovely 来形容其中我最常听到的就是, "It's a beautifulnicelovely day." 反之如果是天气很糟下大雨呢? 你可以用 "It's nasty." 来形容但是有时候也可以用反讽的讲法,例如有一次外头下着倾盆大雨, 我和一个美国同学又正好没带伞,结果她居然说, "How lovely." (天气可真是好啊) 当然想想我们汉语中也有这么说的3. It's burning up out there.外面热得跟火炉似的最近的气温是越来越高,刚过去的周末北京气温升到了今天最高,有点像小火炉了在英文里要形容天气像"火炉"一样,我们可以说, "It's burning up out there." 另外我们也可以说"热得跟地狱一样", "It's hot as hell." 或是俚语的讲法, "It's hot as Hades." 这个 Hades 在这里也是指地狱 (hell) 的意思(改编自:小笨霖英语笔记本 英语点津 Annabel 编辑) 怎么 我们 天气 可以。
