羊皮卷(世界上最伟大的推销员)中英文对照
羊毛在天才的手中变成了袈裟。    A cut of sheep's hair touched with the genius of man becomes raiment for a king.
柏树在天才的手中变成了殿堂。    A Cyprus tree touched with the genius of man becomes a shrine.
粘土在天才的手中变成了堡垒。    A field of clay touched with the genius of man becomes a castle.
桑叶在天才的手中变成了丝绸。    A mulberry leaf touched with the genius of man becomes silk.
一切的一切毫无意义--除非我们付诸行动。    All are of no value unless they are followed by action.
我不可能像动物一样容易满足,我心中燃烧着代代相传的火焰,它激励我超越自己,我要使这团火燃得更旺,向世界宣布我的出类拔萃。    Although I am of the animal kingdom, animal rewards alone will not satisfy me. Within me burns a flame, which has been passed from generations uncounted and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am, and I will. I will fan this flame of dissatisfaction and proclaim my uniqueness to the world.
再前进一步,如果没有用,就再向前一步。事实上,每次进步一点点并不太难。    Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.
当我受别人的冒犯时,当我遇到不如意的事情时,我只会流泪诅咒,却怎么笑得出来?有一句至理名言,我要反复练习,直到它深入我的骨髓,出口成言,让我永远保持良好的心境。这句话,传自远古时代,它们将陪我度过难关,使我的生活保持平衡。这句至理名言就是:这一切都会过去。    And how can I laugh when confronted with man or deed which offends me so as to bring forth my tears or my curses? Four words I will train myself to say until they become a habit so strong that immediately they will appear in my mind whenever good humor threatens to depart from me. These words, passed down from the ancients, will carry me through every adversity and maintain my life in balance. These four words are: This too shall pass.
这不是轻而易举的事情,要怎样才能做到呢,靠这些羊皮卷就能做到。因为每~卷里都写着一个原则,可以摒除—项坏习惯,换取一个好习惯,使人进步,走向成功。这也是自然法则之一,只有一种习惯才能抑制另一种习惯。所以,为了走好我选择的道路,我必须养成的第一个习惯    And how will I accomplish this difficult feat? Through these scrolls, it will be done, for each scroll contains a principle which will drive a bad habit from my life and replace it with one which will bring me closer to success. For it is another of nature's laws that only a habit can subdue another habit. So, in order for these written words to perform their chosen task, I must discipline myself with the first of my new habits which is as follows:
怎样才能做到呢?首先,我要为每一天,每个星期、每个月。每一年、甚至我的一生确立目标。正像种子需要雨水的滋润才能破土而出,发芽长叶,我的生命也须有目的方能结出硕果。在制定目标的时候,不妨参考过去最好的成绩,使其发扬光大。这必须成为我未来生活的目标。永远不要当心目标过高。取法乎上,得其中也,取法中也,得其下也。    And how will I accomplish this? First I will set goals for the day, the week, the month, the year, and my life. Just as the rain must fall before the wheat will crack its shell and sprout, so must I have objectives before my life will crystallize. Insetting my goals I will consider my best performance of the past and multiply it a hundredfold. This will be the standard by which I will live in the future. Never will I be of concern that my goals are too high for is it not better to aim my spear at the moon and strike only an eagle than to arm my spear at the eagle and strike only a rock?
我该怎样行动呢?我要爱每个人的言谈举止,因为人人都有值得钦佩的性格,虽然有时不易察觉。我要用爱摧毁困住人们心灵的高墙,那充满怀疑与仇恨的用墙。我要铺一座通向人们心灵的桥梁。    And how will I act? I will love all manners of men for each has qualities to be admired even though they be hidden. With love I will tear down the wall fo suspicion and hate which they have built round their hearts and in its place will I build bridges so that my love may enter their souls.
我该怎样面对遇到的每一个人呢?只有一种办法,我要在心里默默地为他祝福。这无言的爱会闪现在我的眼神里,流露在我的眉宇间,让我嘴角挂上微笑,在我的声音里响起共鸣。在这无奈的爱意里,他的心扉问我敞开入他不再拒绝我推销的货物。    And how will I confront each whom I meet? In only one way. In silence and to myself I will address him and say I Love You. Though spoken in silence these words will shine in my eyes, unwrinkle my brow, bring a smile to my lips, and echo in my voice; and hisheart will be opened. And who is there who will say nay to my goods when his heart feels my love?
我该怎样做呢?从今往后,我对一切都要满收爱心,这样才能获得新生。我爱太阳,它温暖我的身体;我爱雨水。它洗净我的灵魂;我爱光明,它为我指引道路;我也爱黑夜,它让我看到星辰、我迎接快乐,它使我心胸开阔;我忍受悲伤,它升华我的灵魂;我接受报酬。因为我为此付出汗水;我不怕困难,因为它们给我挑战。    And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and I will be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
我怎样才能控制情绪,让每天充满幸福和欢乐?我要学会这个千古秘诀:弱者任思绪控制行为,强者让行控制思绪。每天醒来当我被悲伤、自怜、失败的情绪包围时,我就这样与之对抗:    And how will I master my emotions so that every day is a happy day, and a productive one? I will learn this secret of the ages: Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts. Each day, when I awaken, I will follow this plan of battle before I am captured by the forces of sadness, self-pity and failure-
我怎样才能控制情绪,以使每天卓有成效呢?除非我心平气和,否则迎来的又将是失败的一天。花草树木,随着气候的变化而生长,但是我为自己创造天气。我要学会用自己的心灵弥补气候的不足。如果我为顾客带来风雨、忧郁、黑暗和悲观,那么他们也会报之于风雨、忧郁、黑暗和悲观,而他们什么也不会买。相反的,如果我们为顾客献上欢乐、喜悦、光明和笑声,他们也会报之以欢乐、喜悦、光明和笑声,我就能获得销售上的丰收,赚取成仓的金币。    And how will I master these emotions so that each day will be productive? For unless my mood is right the day will be a failure. Trees and plants depend on the weather to flourish but I make my own weather, yea I transport it with me. If I bring rain and gloom and darkness and pessimism to my customers then they will react with rain and gloom and darkness and pessimism and they will purchase naught. If I bring joy and enthusiasm and brightness and laughter to my customers they will react with joy and enthusiasm and brightness and laughter and my weather will produce a harvest of sales and a granary of gold for me.
我该怎样说呢?我赞美敌人。敌人于是成为朋友;我鼓励朋友,朋友于是成为手足。我要常想理由赞美别人,绝不搬弄是非,道人长短。想要批评人时,咬住舌头,想要赞美人时,高声表达。飞鸟,清风,海浪,自然界的万物不都在用美妙动听的歌声赞美造物主吗?我也要用同样的歌声赞美她的儿女。从今往后,我要记住这个秘密。它将改变我的生活。    And how will I speak? I will laud mine enemies and they will become friends; I will encourage my friends and they will become brothers. Always will I dig for reasons to applaud; never will I scratch for excuses to gossip. When I am tempted to criticize I will bite on my tongue; when I am moved to praise I will shout from the roofs. Is it not so that birds, the wind, the sea and all nature speaks with the music of praise for their creator? Cannot I speak with the same music to his children? Henceforth will I remember this secret and it will change my life.
怎么可能?我既没有渊博的知识,又没有丰富的经验,况且,我曾一度跌入愚昧与自怜的深渊.答案很简单。我不会让所谓的知识或者经验妨碍我的行程.造物生已经赐予我足够的知识和本能,这份天赋是其它生物望尘莫及的。经验的价值往往被高估了,人老的时候开口讲的多是糊涂话.    And how will this be accomplished? For I have neither the knowledge nor the experience to achieve the greatness and already I have stumbled in ignorance and fallen into pools of self-pity. The answer is simple. I will commence my journey unencumbered with either the weight of unnecessary knowledge or the handicap of meaningless experience. Nature already has supplied me with knowledge and instinct far greater than any beast in the forest and the value of experience is overrated, usually by old men who nod wisely and speak stupidly.
我郑重地发誓,绝不让任何事情妨碍我新生命的成长。在阅读这些羊卷的时候,我绝不浪费一天的时间,因为时光一去不返,失去的日子是无法弥补的。我也绝不打破每天阅读的习惯。事实上,每天在这些新习惯上花费少许时间,相对于可能获得的愉乐与成功而言,只是微不足道的代价。    And I make a solemn oath to myself that nothing will retard my new life's growth. I will lose not a day from these readings for that day cannot be retrieved nor can I substitute another for it. I must not, I will not, break this habit of daily reading from these scrolls and, in truth, the few moments spent each day on this new habit are but a small price to pay for the happiness and success that will be mine.
如果这是我的末日,那么它就是不朽的纪念日,我把它当成最美好的日子。我要把每分每秒化为甘露,一口一口,细细品尝,满怀感激。我要每一分钟都有价值。我要加倍努力,直到精疲力竭。即使这样,我还要继续努力。我要拜访更多的顾客,销售更多的货物,赚取更多的财富。今天的每一分钟都胜过昨天的每一小时,最后的也是最好的。    And if it is my last, it will be my greatest monument. This day I will make the best day of my life. This day I will drink every minute to its full. I will savor its taste and give thanks. I will make the every hour count and each minute I will trade only for something of value. I will labor harder than ever before and push my muscles until they cry for relief, and then I will continue. I will make more calls than ever before. I will sell more goods than ever before. I will earn more gold than ever before. Each minute of today will be more fruitful than hours of yesterday. My last must be my best.
如果不是的话,我要跪倒在上苍面前,深深致谢。    And if it is not, I shall fall to my knees and give thanks.
太阳温暖大地,麦粒吐穗结实。这些羊皮卷上的话也照耀我的生活,使梦想成真。今天我要超越昨天的成就。我要竭尽全力攀登今天的高峰,明天更上一层楼。超越别人并不重要,超越自己才是最重要的。    And just as the sun must warm the earth to bring forth the seedling of wheat so, too, will the words on these scrolls warm my life and turn my dreams into reality. Today I will surpass every action which I performed yesterday. I will climb today's mountain to the utmost of my ability yet tomorrow I will climb higher than today, and the next will be higher than tomorrow. To surpass the deeds of others is unimportant; to surpass my own deeds is all.
春风吹熟了麦穗,风声也将我的声音吹往那些愿意聆听者的耳畔。我要宣告我的目标。君子一言,驷马难追。我要成为自己的预言家。虽然大家可能嘲笑我的言辞但会倾听我的计划,了解我的梦想,因为我无处可逃,直到兑现了诺言。    And just as the warm wind guides the wheat to maturity, the same winds will carry my voice to those who will listen and my words will announce my goals. Once spoken I dare not recall them lest I lose face. I will be as my own prophet and though all may laugh at my utterances they will hear my plans, they will know my dreams; and thus there will be no escape for me until my words become accomplished deeds.
最主要的,我要爱自己。只有这样,我才会认真检查进入我的身体,思想,精神,头脑,灵魂,心怀的一切东西.我绝不放纵肉体的需求,我要用清洁与节制来珍惜我的身体。我绝不让头脑受到邪恶与绝望的引诱,我要用智慧和知识使之升华。我绝不让灵魂陷入自满的状态,我要用沉思和祈祷来滋润它。我绝不让心怀狭窄,我要与人分享,使它成长,温暖整个世界。    And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart. Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh, rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation. Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather I will uplift it with the knowledge and wisdom of the ages. Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer. Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth.
我笑自己,因为自视甚高的人往往显得滑稽。千万不能跌进这个精神陷阱,虽说我们是造物主最伟大的奇迹,我不也是沧海一栗吗?我真的知道自己从那里来,到那里去吗?我现在所关心的事情,十年后看来,不会显得愚蠢吗?为什么我要现在发生的微不足道的琐事烦扰我?这漫漫的历史长河中,能留下多少日落的记忆?    And most of all, I will laugh at myself for man is most comical when he takes himself too seriously. Never will I fall into this trap of the mind. For though I be nature's greatest miracle am I not still a mere grain tossed about by the winds of time? Do I truly know whence I came or whither I am bound? Will my concern for this day not seem foolish ten years hence? Why should I permit the petty happenings of today to disturb me? What can take place before this sun sets which will not seem insignificant in the river of centuries?
自然界不知何谓失败,终以胜利者的姿态出现,我也要如此,因为成功一旦降临,就会再度光顾。    And nature knows not defeat. Eventually, she emerges victorious and so will I, and with each victory the next struggle becomes less difficult.
只要我能笑,就永远不会贫穷。这也是天赋,我不再浪费它。只有在笑声和快乐中,我才能享受到劳动的果实。如果不这样,我会失败,因为快乐是提味的美酒佳酿。要想享受成功,必须先有快乐,而笑声便是那伴娘。    And so long as I can laugh never will I be poor. This, then, is one of nature's greatest gifts, and l will waste it no more. Only with laughter and happiness can l truly become a success. Only with laughter and happiness can I enjoy the fruits of my labor. Were it not so, far better would it be to fail, for happiness is the wine that sharpens the taste of the meal. To enjoy success I must have happiness, and laughter will be the maiden who serves me.
我要如何利用这最后、最宝贵的一天呢?首先,我要把一天的时间珍藏好,不让一分一秒的时间滴漏。我不为昨日的不幸叹息,过去的已够不幸,不要再赔上今日的运道。    And what shall I do with this last precious day which remains in my keeping? First, I will seal up its container of life so that not one drop spills itself upon the sand. I will waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortunes, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday's aches of the heart, for why should I throw good after bad?
我该怎么办?忘记昨天,也不要痴想明天。明天是一个未知数,为什么要把今天的精力浪费在未知的事上?想着明天的种种,今天的时光也白白流逝了。企盼今早的太阳再次升起,太阳已经落山。走在今天的路上,能做明天的事吗?我能把明天的金币放进今天的钱袋里吗?明日瓜熟,今日能蒂落吗?明天的死亡能将今天的欢乐蒙上阴影吗?我能杞人忧天吗?明天和明天一样被我埋葬。我不再想它。    And what then shall I do? Forgetting yesterday neither will I think of tomorrow. Why should I throw note after maybe? Can tomorrow's sand flow through the glass before today's? Will the sun rise twice this morning? Can I perform tomorrow's deeds while standing in today's path? Can I place tomorrow's gold in today's purse? Can tomorrow’s child be born today? Can tomorrow's death cast its shadow backward and darken today's joy? Should I concern myself over events which l may never witness? Should I torment myself with problems that may never come to pass? No! Tomorrow lies buried with yesterday, and I will think of it no more.
这些习惯有什么好处呢?这里隐含着人类成功的秘诀。当我每天重复这些话的时候,它何成了我精神活动的一部分,更重要的是,它们渗入我的心灵。拥是个神秘的世界,永不静止,创造梦境,在不知不觉中影响我的行为。    And what will be accomplished with this habit? Herein lies the hidden secret of all man's accomplishments. As I repeat the words daily they will soon become a part of my active mind, but more important, they will also seep into my other mind, that mysterious source which never sleeps, which creates my dreams, and often makes me act in ways I do not comprehend.
当我完成这件事,我再接再励。当羊皮卷上的话在我身上实现时,世上会惊叹我的伟大。    And when it is done I will do it again, and again, and there will be astonishment and wonder at my greatness as the words of these scrolls are fulfilled in me.
笑声中,一切都显露本色。我笑自己的失败,它们将化为梦的云彩;我笑自己的成功,它们回复本来面目;我笑邪恶,它们远我而去;我笑善良,它们发扬光大。我要用我的笑容感染别人,虽然我的目的自私,但这确实是成功之道,因为皱起的眉头会让顾客弃我而去。    And with my laughter all things will be reduced to their proper size. I will laugh at my failures and they will vanish in clouds of new dreams; I will laugh at my successes and they will shrink to their true value. I will laugh at evil and it will die untasted; I will laugh at goodness and it will thrive and abound. Each day will be triumphant only when my smiles bring forth smiles from others and this l do in selfishness, for those on whom l flown are those who purchase not my goods.
有了这项新本领,我也更能体察别人的情绪变化。我宽容怒气冲冲的人,因为他尚未懂得控制自己的情绪,就可以忍受他的指责与辱骂,因为我知道明天他会改变,重新变得随和。    And with this new knowledge I will also understand and recognize the moods of him on whom I call. I will make allowances for his anger and irritation of today for he knows not the secret of controlling his mind. I can withstand his arrows and insults for now I know that tomorrow he will change and be a joy to approach.
小时候.我常会感情用事,长大成人了,我要用良好的习惯代替一时的冲动。我的自由意志屈服于多年养成的恶习,它们威胁着我的前途。我的行为受到品味、情感、偏见、欲望、爱、恐惧、环境和习惯的影响,其中最厉害的就是习惯。因此.如果我必须受习惯支配的话,那就让我受好习惯的支配。那些坏习惯必须戒除,我要在新的田地里播种好的种子。    As a child I was slave to my impulses; now I am slave to my habits, as are all grown men. I have surrendered my free will to the years of accumulated habits and the past deeds of my life have already marked out a path which threatens to imprison my future. My actions are ruled by appetite, passion, prejudice, greed, love, fear, environment, habit, and the worst of these tyrants is habit. Therefore, if I must be a slave to habit let me be a slave to good habits. My bad habits must be destroyed and new furrows prepared for good seed.
当我阅读羊皮卷中的字句时,绝不能出为文字的精炼而忽视内容的深沉。一瓶葡萄美酒需要千百颗果子酿制而成,果皮和渣子抛给小鸟。葡萄的智慧代代相传,有些被过滤,有些被淘汰,随风飘逝。只有纯正的真理才是永恒的。它们就精炼在我要阅读的文字中。我要依照指示,绝不浪费,饮下成功的种子。    As I read and re-read the words in the scrolls to follow, never will I allow the brevity of each scroll nor the simplicity of its words to cause me to treat the scroll's message lightly. Thousands of grapes are pressed to fill one jar with wine, and the grape skin and pulp are tossed to the birds. So it is with these grapes of wisdom from the ages. Much has been filtered and tossed to the wind. Only the pure truth lies distilled in the words to come. I will drink as instructed and spill not a drop. And the seed of success I will swallow.
当这些羊皮卷上的文字,被我奇妙的心灵完全吸收之后,我每天都会充满活力地醒来。我从来没有这样精力充沛过。我更有活力,更有热情,要向世界挑战的欲望克服了一切恐惧与不安。在这个充满争斗和悲伤的世界里,我竟然比以前更快活。    As the words of these scrolls are consumed by my mysterious mind I will begin to awake, each morning, with a vitality I have never known before. My vigor will increase, my enthusiasm will rise, my desire to meet the world will overcome every fear I once knew at sunrise, and I will be happier than I ever believed it possible to be in this world of strife and sorrow.
