笔译:《菜根谭》英译(多病未羞 无病是忧)

2016-04-07    来源:en84    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

泛驾之马可就驰驱,跃冶之金终归型范。只一优游不振,便终身无个进步。白沙云:“为人多病未足羞,一生无病是吾忧。”真确论也。

 
在原野上奔驰的野马经过人的驯养可以成为供人驾驭奔驰的好马,溅到熔炉外面的金属最终还是被人放在模具中熔铸成可用之物。而人只要一落入游手好闲不思振作的地步,那么就永远不会有什么出息了。所以白沙先生说:“一个人有很多缺点并不可耻,只有一生都看不到自己缺点的人才是最令人担忧的。”这真是至理名言。 
 
An unruly horse can still be ridden after taming. Melted metals from the smelting furnace are returned to the mould. A man devoted to idleness and devoid of enthusiasm will make no progress as long as he lives. The hermit Baisha said, “Making mistakes is no cause for shame. What worries me most would be a lifetime without mistakes.” How true those words are!
(保罗·怀特 译)
 
A wide horse can be tamed for ride. Spattered metal will eventually be picked up and put back into the mould again. As for a person, if he passes his days just in idleness and low spirits, he will be unable to make any progress. Mr. Baisha1 said, “It is not a shame if one recognizes that he has made many mistakes. What worries me most is that one claims not to have made any mistakes in his life.” How true the phrases are!
 
1. Mr. Baisha: Chen Xianzhang (1428-1500), a man of letters in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). He lived as a hermit in his later years in Baisha, eastern Xinhui in Guangdong Province, hence styled. He had written many impressive poems and essays.
(周文标 译)
 
The violent horse that upsets the carriage can be broken for riding, and the molten metal that flies out of the furnace is put in the matrix in the end. But if someone is idle and dispirited, he will get nowhere all his life. The scholar Chen Xianzhang said: “It is no shame for one to have faults: what I worry about is to have no faults all one’s life.” How true that is!
(蒋坚松 译)
