有声名著《格列佛游记》12:第2章 在利力浦特的生活(6)

Well,you know,of course,that most people used to break their boiled eggs at the larger end.But our King's grandfather once cut a finger while breaking his egg this way,and so his father the King ordered all Lilliputians,from then on,to break the smaller end of their eggs.People who do that are called Small Endians.
哦,你当然知道,大多数人过去习惯于从煮蛋的大的一端打破。而我们国王的祖父有一次这样打蛋时弄伤了手指,所以国王的父王下令所有的利力浦特人从那以后从小的一端打破蛋。那样做的人称作小端派。

But Lilliputians feel strongly about this and some Big-Endians have fought angrily against this law.As many as eleven thousand people have been killed because they refused to break their eggs at the smaller end.Some of the Big-Endians have escaped to join our enemies in Blefuscu.
可是利力浦特人强烈反对这一点,有些大端派人愤怒地反抗这项法令。多达1.1万人因为拒绝从小的一端打蛋而被处死。有些大端派人逃脱加入了我们在不来夫斯古的敌人一边。

The King of Blefuscu has always wanted to defeat Lilliput in war,and now we hear that he's prepared a large number of ships,which will attack us very soon.So you see,my friend,how much our King needs your help,in order to defeat his enemies.
不来夫斯古的国王早就想在战争中打败利力浦特,而现在我们听说他已经准备了大量的战船,不久就要进攻我们。所以,你看,我的朋友,为了打败他的敌人,我们的国王多么需要你的帮助。

I did not hesitate for a moment.Please tell the King,I answered warmly,that l am ready to give my life to save him or his country.
我一点也没犹豫。请转告国王,我热情地回答,为了救他和他的国家我宁愿牺牲生命。
