       青春,是蓬蓬勃勃的生机,是永不泯灭的希望,是一往无前的勇敢,是生命中最辉煌的色彩。无惧挫折,无惧苦难,只因太阳每天都是新的,人生每天都在启航。


       With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, thousands of young medical workers, police officers and community workers rush to the frontier with no hesitation, whose spirit lighten their youth and life.

       新冠肺炎疫情发生以来,无数的年轻医务工作者,无数年轻的警察、社区工作者披上了他们的“战袍”,面对疫情,他们义无反顾、负重前行,青春不悔,生命无憾!

       Now please enjoy the reciting of Youth written by Samuel Ullman from Ivy, Emily and Henry from Maple Leaf Jingzhou.
       接下来请欣赏由荆州枫叶三位同学为您诵读来自Samuel Ullman 塞缪尔·乌尔曼的散文《青春》以及他们的读后感悟。

About the Author

       背景:塞缪尔·乌尔曼 (1840年4月13日 - 1924年3月21日),犹太人,美国作家,1840年生于德国,儿时随家人移居美国,参加过南北战争,之后定居英国伯明翰,经营五金杂货,年逾70岁开始写作。他于78岁时写的散文《Youth》因麦克阿瑟将军的喜爱而出名。


●Youth ●
●●●Samuel Ullman ●●●
       Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.
       Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.
       Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.
       Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing appetite for what’s next and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart, there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, courage and power from man and from the infinite, so long as you are young.
       When your aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you’ve grown old, even at 20; but as long as your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism, there’s hope you may die young at 80. 

● 青春 ●
王佐良译
       青春不是年华,而是心境;青春不是桃面、丹唇、柔膝,而是深沉的意志,恢宏的想象,炙热的恋情;青春是生命的深泉在涌流。
       青春气贯长虹,勇锐盖过怯弱,进取压倒苟安。如此锐气,二十后生而有之,六旬男子则更多见。年岁有加,并非垂老,理想丢弃,方堕暮年。
       岁月悠悠,衰微只及肌肤;热忱抛却,颓废必致灵魂。忧烦,惶恐,丧失自信,定使心灵扭曲,意气如灰。
       无论年届花甲,拟或二八芳龄,心中皆有生命之欢乐,奇迹之诱惑,孩童般天真久盛不衰。人人心中皆有一台天线,只要你从天上人间接受美好、希望、欢乐、勇气和力量的信号,你就青春永驻,风华常存。
       一旦天线下降,锐气便被冰雪覆盖,玩世不恭、自暴自弃油然而生,即使年方二十,实已垂垂老矣;然则只要树起天线,捕捉乐观信号,你就有望在八十高龄告别尘寰时仍觉年轻。

● 学生感悟 ●

●●●The Comprehension from Students ●●●

●Ivy501郑幕韩感悟:

       What is youth, I also have my own views on youth. Youth is not a time of life, but a stage from a child to an adult. Whether your youth is happy or plain, It will be a very important stage in your life. For example, in your youth, you are allowed to make mistakes, and those mistakes can really enrich your life. When you are young, you may not know everything very well, because of that , everything in youth is beautiful and charming. So, cherish your youth, they are precious and they never come back again.
       什么是青春?我对青春的理解是,青春不是人生的一段时间,而是从小孩到大人的一个阶段。不管你的青春是快乐的还是平凡的,它都是你人生中重要的一个阶段。比如,当你正值青春时,你可以犯错,而那些错误又可以丰富你的生活。当我们还稚嫩时,我们不谙世事,我们无所畏惧,也正因为这样,我们的青春才美丽又动人。所以,珍惜你的青春,他们是你的再也不会重来的宝藏。

● Emily801赵语涵感悟:

       Youth is a transition period from the young to adult. It’s like breaking a cocoon into a butterfly. It’s like new born sun bright on children’s faces.
       Youth is short and fleeting, but is the most beautiful period of life. It is the first time for us to have a crush and learn what the love is.
       Youth is a story for everyone. It may be beautiful, it may be painful, it may be helpless, it may be full of vigor.
       Youth is like a blank paper. We sprinkled our favorite colors on it.Youth is to bloom and to live your own lifestyle.
       Cherish youth, cherish our own uniqueness.
       青春是从年少到长大成人的一个过渡期。它就像破蛹成蝶一般壮丽,也像新生的太阳照在孩子们脸上那般耀眼。
       青春短暂即逝,却又是人生中最美好的一段时光。也是我们第一去体会什么是爱。
       青春对每个人来说都是一个故事。这个故事或美丽, 或疼痛,或无助,亦或精彩。
       青春就像一张白纸。我们用最喜欢的色彩去描绘青春, 让青春绽放,活出自己的光彩。
       珍惜青春,珍惜独一无二的的自己。

● Henry余昊霖 602感悟:

       To me, “youth” doesn’t only means “young time”. It also means “work hard time”. Just like an old Chinese saying has said: “If you don’t work hard now, you can only feel regret when you grow up.” If we don’t work hard now, we will regret when we grow up. We need to work hard RIGHT NOW. We cannot waste any of our time. So, are you still playing under your desk while your teacher is teaching you some useful things? Stop it, and put your efforts on your study. You will appreciate yourself in the future.
       于我来说,青春并不仅仅意味着 “年少的时光”, 它同样也意味着“努力的时期”就像中国古话说的:“少壮不努力,老大徒伤悲。”如果我们现在不努力,长大后留给我们的只有后悔和遗憾。我们不能浪费我们仅有的时间,从现在起就要开始努力。那么,你还在老师传授我们知识的时候躲在桌子下面玩吗?赶快停止吧,把你的心思放到学习上。你一定会在未来感谢曾经努力的自己。
