笔译:《菜根谭》英译(顺不足喜 逆不足忧)

2016-03-30    来源:en84    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

居逆境中,周身皆针砭药石,砥节砺行而不觉;处顺境内,眼前尽兵刃戈矛,销膏靡骨而不知。 

 
【译文】一个人如果生活在逆境中身边所接以的全是有犹如医疗自身不蹭的良药在不知不党中会使你敦品硕行磨练自己的意志反之一个人如果生活在顺境中,这就等于在你的面前摆满了销磨你精神意志的刀枪,在不知不觉中使你 身心受到腐蚀而走向失败的路途。
 
【英文译文】When you face trying circumstances, everything that you encounter has the effect of bitter medicinal herbs and the stone needles used in acupuncture. These needles and medicines serve to refine your character and conduct, although you do not realize it. When you are experiencing smooth sailing, it is as if the path ahead were strewn with weapons, which harm you bit by bit until you are finally destroyed. At such times a man can be compared to lamp oil, which is gradually consumed until there is none left, although he is unaware of it.
(保罗·怀特 译)
 
When put into adversity, one would feel as if his whole body were placed in medicines and stone needles for acupuncture; under such circumstances, he will subconsciously focus attention on the refinement of his virtue and rectification of this conduct. When one rides on the crest of success, it would be as if the path ahead were covered with swords and dagger-axes; at such moment, his energy and willpower will be gradually worn down without being noticed.
(周文标 译)
 
In adversity, one is surrounded, as it were, by salutary though unpalatable remedies, which help improve one’s moral integrity and character without one’s knowing it; in prosperity, one is confronted, so to speak, with dangerous weapons, which harm and destroy one’s flesh and bone without one’s realizing it.
(蒋坚松 译)
 
In adverse situations, even though around you are needles and medicines that will help you through the trials, you are unaware of them. In favorable circumstances, all around you are swords and halberds which will whittle away your flesh and bones, you do not know about them.
(Robert Aitken & Daniel W. Y. Kwok 译)
