呃……我住过的最可爱的房子,就是小时侯和爷爷奶奶一起住的房屋了房子的名字叫“十字地带”,它留给我一些令人非常愉快的回忆 A Beautiful MemoryEr...the loveliest house that I've ever lived in was one that I lived in with my grandparents when I was a child. And the name of the house was Crosslands. And I have some very happy memories of Crosslands. It was, it seemed, so huge to me as a child. And it had a lovely living room with a piano in it and a lovely sort of hall with lots of carpets and chests and antiques and so on. And there was a mysterious room, it was the drawing room, and we only used it on Sundays, or when the vicar came tea, or Christmas Day or Easter Day, and I was used to be amazed about this room because it had the best furniture in it but it was covered up with sheets- it was as if all the furniture was wearing clothes- and it seemed to me ridiculous that we couldn't enjoy this beautiful furniture all the week through really.And probably my favorite room was the kitchen. It had a lovely red flagstone floor, which was always highly polished, and an Aga, you know, one of those big cookers that heats the whole room so it was always warm there, and there was a kind of clothes horse above it that we used to hang all our clothes on, and it was just lovely. It was a very warm room with baked b and my grandmother used to make ice cream and we'd eat it in there and... there was a vegetable garden leading from thereso I spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden picking peas and eating them—my grandmother used to get really cross with me because I used to pick all the vegetables and the fruit our meals and then I'd eat half of them, because they tasted so delicious coming fresh from the garden.Now, I went back to it a few years ago and it was a big mistake. They've modernized it inside, they've got rid of those lovely old fire-places...have just gone. And they've knocked a wall down so the drawing room and the living room have become one big modern plastic kind of room.But I think what upset me most about it was the feeling that the house had shrunk, it had become smaller and that my memory of this lovely large warm comtable house had turned into an old house with modernized rooms inside it. And it taught me a lesson really, that you can't go back on the past and recapture it. But there's a beautiful memory there. 335。

  • 人类中堪称墙一般笔直挺立的人少有,像纪念柱一样矗立的人更少,这样的人是美的化身,世所罕见,历史记录他们的存在,奉之为后世的楷模《圣经中的人物在我心中是最接近完人的范例,他们无私,信仰坚定,帮助他人,不遗余力A Straight Wall Is Hard to Build by Lou R. CrandallAs I try to outline my thoughts, the subject becomes more and more difficult. I have many basic beliefs but as I try to pick and choose it seems to me that they all can be summarized in the word "character." Obviously, what you believe is a fundamental thing. There can be no fanfare, no embellishments. It must be honest.An architect once told me that the most difficult structure to design was a simple monumental shaft. The proportions must perfect to be pleasing. The hardest thing to build is a plain straight wall. The dimensions must be absolute. In either case there is no ornamentation to hide irregularities, no moldings to cover hidden defects and no supports to strengthen concealed weaknesses.I am using this example to illustrate human character, which to me is the most important single power in the world today. The young people of toady are in reality foundations of structures yet to be built. It is obvious that the design of these human structures is the combined efts of many human architects. Boys and girls are influenced first by their parents, then by their friends and finally by business associates. During this period of construction, the human character is revised and changed until at maturity a fairly well-fixed m of character is found.There are few human straight walls and fewer human monumental shafts. Such men and women are personalities of great beauty and are so rare that history records their being and holds them up as examples the future. The Biblical characters are me the closest examples of human perfection. They were unselfish, steadfast in their faith and unstinting in their help to others.Today in this world of turmoil and trouble we could use more of such people, but they do not just happen along. I believe that they are the result of concentrated eft on the part of parents and associates, and the more we build with character the better the world will become. This may sound like a dreamer's hope and a theoretical goal which can never be reached. I do not think so.The world as a whole has progressed tremendously material-wise, and we are a tunate nation in that we are leading the procession. It is, I believe, natural that nations not so tunate should look upon us with envy. We would do the same if the positions were reserved, so we should not judge too harshly the efts of others to equal our standard of living. In either case, the tunate or the untunate character in the individual and collectively in a nation stands out. I agree that it is easier to build character under ideal conditions but cannot get that character is also required to give as well as receive.It should be to the benefit of humanity if all individuals - and this includes myself - did a renovation or remodeling job on our own character. It may merely be a case of removing rough edges or tossing away molding to expose irregularities, in some cases to remove a prop and stand on one's own feet. In any event if some of us set example, others will follow and the result should be good. This I believe. 536。
