梦想终有成真时

更新时间:2011-07-11    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

  我们并不是因为年老就不再玩耍;我们变老是因为我们不再玩耍。只有四个秘密可以让你保持年轻,快乐,获得成功。你必须每天都开怀大笑,寻找幽默。你必须有一个梦想。失去了梦想,你就会虽生犹死。

  Never Too Late to Become What You Want to Be

  The first day of school our professor introduced a little old lady to us.

  "Why are you in college at such a young age?" I asked later. She jokingly replied, " I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, have a couple of children, and then retire and travel."

  "No seriously," I asked. I was curious what may have motivatedher to be taking on this challenge at her age. "I always dreamed of having a college education and now I'm getting one!" she told me.

  We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and tolk nonstop. I was always listening to this "time machine" as she shared her wisdom and experience with me.

  At the end of the semester we invited Rose to make a speech to our football team. I'll never forget what she taught us. As she began to deliverher prepared speech, she dropped her note card on the floor. A little embarrassed she simply said, "I'm sorry. This whiskey is killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know." As we laughed she cleared her throat and began:" We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day. You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even know it! There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talentor ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding the opportunity in change. Have no regrets. The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets."

  At the year's end Rose finished the college degree. One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep. Over two thousand college students attended her funeral to honorthe wonderful woman who taught by example that it's never too late to be all you can possibly be.

  梦想终有成真时

  开学第一天,教授把一位小个子老太太介绍给了我们。

  随后我问道,“你为什么这么“年轻”还来读大学?”她开玩笑地回答:“我来这儿是为了认识一个有钱的丈夫,结婚,生几个孩子,然后退休去旅行。”

  “不,认真点儿。”我问道。我很好奇,到底是什么东西让她在这个年纪还要接受这样一个挑战。“我一直梦想着上大学,现在我就在读大学!”她告诉我。

  我们马上成了朋友。在随后的三个月里,我们每天一起离开教室,不停地交谈。我总是和历经了岁月沧桑的她一起分享她的智慧和经验。
