【美文阅读】人生的满分 文如水 中文 吴刚 英译 
 
 人生中什么才是最重要的呢?有人说是勤奋,有人说是知识,还有人说是爱或者运气。

如果英文的26个字母依序分别代表1到26这26个数字,那么hardwork(勤奋)就是8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11=98分, knowledge(知识)就是11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5=96分,love(爱)就是12+15+22+5=54分,而luck(运气)只有12+21+3+11=47分。

究竟是什么才能让人生得到满分呢?是money (金钱)?也不是!莫慌,人生的每一个问题总能找到答案,只要改变你的态度。对了,能让人生得到满分的是你对生活和工作的态度,也就是 Attitude。不信你瞧:1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5=100分。

不一样的态度造就不一样的人生。很多时候人们都期望生活能获得更好的变化,当我们开始改变自己的态度时,这种变化就会发生。

当你对他人采取更友善的态度,就会觉得人们变得更加亲切;当你对挫折采取更积极的态度,就会发现原来在损失之外还有很大的收获……

How Do You Get a Full Mark for Your Life

What’s the most important thing for you to have in your life? Somebody mentions hard-work, others suggest knowledge, love and luck. .

If you arrange the 26 English letters according to their alphabetic order and use serial numbers to stand for each of them, e.g. 1 for a, 2 for b, you can transfer an English word into a number.Thus hard-work becomes 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11=98, meaning 98 is its marks; knowledge: 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5=96, while love:12+15+22+5=54, and luck:12+21+3+11=47, a small mark.

None of these words can give one a full mark. Nor can money. Then what else? Don’t be anxious. You can always find an answer to a problem in your life, only if you change your way of looking at things or doing things, or your attitude. Yes, attitude is the word. See for yourself: attitude:1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5=100, a full mark.

Different attitudes lead to different courses of life. Most times people hope for a better life. It is possible that one will have a change for the better after one has changed one’s attitude.

When you change your manner and become friendly towards others, you’ll meet more smiling faces towards you.In the same way, if you adopt a positive attitude towards frustration, you’ll find it’s also rewarding though it has caused you losses. (摘自2010年2月《英语沙龙》)
