做人


        母亲病了,住在医院里,我去守护她。
    很多人来探望母亲,他们带来各种各样的水果和补品。每一个人来,母亲都说:“你有心来探望我这把老骨头,我就很感激了;怎么能让你破费?快把东西带回去给小孩吃。”
    那些人自然不会把东西带回去。母亲叫我把东西硬塞回他们的怀里,可他们鬼机灵地把东西扔在桌子上就跑了。
    母亲吃不了那么多水果和补品,就叫我也吃,一边看我吃,一边问:“好吃吗?”
    我说:“好吃。”
     过了两天,表哥来看望我的母亲。表哥手里空空的,没有水果,也没有补品,可是他临走时掏出一张百元大钞放在母亲的枕头边。母亲赶紧捡起钱,要还给表哥。表哥转身就走。母亲把钱递给我,指着表哥的背影说:“快。”
   我接过钱去追表哥,追出很远才追上。表哥死活不肯要回钱。我硬把钱放在他的口袋里说:“快收下,别惹我妈生气。”
   表哥摇摇头,无可奈何地说:“大姨这个人,心太好。”
   我完成任务回到病房,母亲仰身半坐地问:“你表哥要不要?”】
  “他哪里肯要,我硬放进他口袋里去。”
   母亲的头落回到枕头上,她不再说话,好久,才长长地叹了一口气。我赶紧凑到床前问:“你哪里不舒服?”
   母亲伸出枯瘦的手抚摸我的脸说:“你几时才学会做人?”
   我惶恐的问:“我哪里做错了?”
   母亲抿抿嘴,似笑非笑地说:“我是你表哥的大姨,病成这个样子了,他给一百元不应该吗?”
   我恍然大悟,转身要再去追表哥。母亲一把拉住我的衣摆说:“你又错了。”





请大家试试伸手。看谁是翻译的大侠?谁是剑客?哈哈

:                                                                  To be sensible
My mother sickened and was in hospital .I went to take care of her there .
    Many went to see my mother ,taking sorts of fruits and tonics with them .When one arrived ,my mother would say ,”Many thanks for your kindness to come to see me . I’m that grateful! How could I have the honor to have you spend money ? Please take the presents back for your children.”
  None of them ,of course ,did so .My mother ordered me to stuff these things into the visitors’ arms ,but they would leave them on the table and hurried off when we didn’t pay attention to.
There were too many fruits and tonics for my mother to have .So she gave me some too and would ask me “Is it savory?” while I we were enjoying these things .
   “Yes .” replied I .
One or two days later ,one of my cousins went to see my mother ,but without anything in hands ,no fruits nor tonics .When leaving ,he ,however , took a piece of one-hundred bill out of his pocket and put it near my mother’s pillow .Quickly ,my mother picked up the bill to return it to my cousin .But he went off without any hesitating .Pointing at the view of my cousin’s back ,my mother handed me over the bill and said ,”Be quick to return it to him ,please .”
Having taken the money , I hurriedly went off too and caught up with my cousin after a distance .But he stoutly refused to take it .I forcedly stuffed it into his pocket and said ,”Or my mother would not be happy .”
   Shaking his head ,my cousin sighed ,” My aunt ,she is too kind-hearted .”
  After returning the money ,I went back to the ward again . My mother stretched forward ,leaning on a hand ,and inquired me ,”Has you cousin accepted the money ?”
   “He had refused to take it ,but I forcedly put it into his pocket .”
    My mother’s head fell onto the pillow again and sighed deeply ,without any words for a long while any more .
Quickly ,I walked forward and asked ,”What’s wrong ,mom?”
Lifting up one of her skinny hands and dauting my face , my mother said ,”When would you be sensible ?”
I then asked her with a reverence and awe ,”Where was I wrong ,mom? “
My mother tucked her lips ,seemingly smiling .She continuously told me ,”I am your cousin’s aunt and have been so heavily sickened . Shouldn’t he have left the piece of one-hundred bill ?”
I took a tumble and was to chase my cousin again ,but my mother stopped me by drawing the end of my dress ,saying “You’re wrong again if you do like this .”

People Skill

My mother was ill and staying in hospital. Therefore, I accompanied her there.

Many people came to visit her with all sorts of fruits and tonics. “Since you have kindness to visit me, an oldie, I already appreciate you. How come I let you buy me such things? Bring them back to your children please,” said my mother to every one of them.

Those kind-hearted naturally didn’t take these gift fruits and tonics away. It took me much effort to put them in their hands, for which she asked me. However, cannily, they threw their gifts softly on the desk and ran away.

In fact, my mother couldn’t eat that much and she let me have some. “Nice?” asked she when she looked at me.

“Yes, it is.” said I.

A couple of days past, my cousin visited my mother. Neither fruits nor tonics were in his hands. But when he was about to leave, he left RMB100 next to my mother`s pillow. She instantly picked up the money, wanting to give it back. But My cousin just turned away. She handed the money to me and pointed to my cousin’s back and said, “Go.”

I took the money and chased my cousin. I got him after running a little bit far. He was so stubborn that I couldn’t ask him to have it back. Finally, I put it in his pocket by force and said, “Take it right now and don’t get on my mother’s nervous.

He shook his head and gave up finally. “How kind she is, my aunt,” said he.
  
After that, I retuned to the sickroom. “Did he take it?” asked my mother, leaning on her pillow.

“He was so rigid and I put that money in his pocket by force,” said I.

My mother laid again and she didn’t speak anything. After a long time, she just took a deep breath. I hurriedly reached the bed and asked: “ How do you feel now?”
   
She stroked my cheek with her skinny hands. “ When would you know about people skill?”

“ Have I done something wrong?” terrified I.

She closed lips tightly with a subtle smile and said, “I am your cousin`s aunt and under such a condition. He is obliged to give RMB100, isn’t he?

By now, I awoke up and I instantly turned to chase my cousin. At that time she seized my clothes and said, “Again, you are wrong.”

第一句……

题目可翻译为 Learn the Ways of the World(处世之道)

“母亲病了,住在医院里,我去守护她。”这一句的前半句
可直接翻译为  My mother was hospitalized 。“病了”可不译,因为be hospitalized 就是因病住院。
翻译后一句可做适当添补:... and I was often at her bed-side, looking after her.

译文

Learn the Ways of the World

My mother was hospitalized and I was often at her bed-side looking after her.
      She had lots of visitors, who invariably came with different kinds of fruits and tonics. Invariably she would decline thus, “I’m thankful enough to you for coming to see me.” How can I bear to see you go to enough for my sake? Come on! Take those things back with you for your kids.”
Naturally, no caller would accept her suggestion, and mother would ask me to press the presents back into the hands of the guests, who would very clearly leave the things on the table and quickly get away.
     Not being able to consume so many nice things all by herself, she would invite me to share with her, and watching me eating, she would ask, “Aren’t they delicious?”
      “Yes, they are, they are.”
        One day, my elder made cousin on mother’s side came to see her, empty-handed. But before he left, he produced a one-hundred-yuan banknote and put it beside Mother’s pillow. She hurriedly picked it up as a gesture of declination. My cousin quickly turned and left the ward. Mother handed the money to me, and pointing to his receding figure, and said, “Quick!”
I went after him the money. It took me a long time before I intercepted him. He simply wouldn’t take it back, but I succeeded in stuffing the banknote right into his pocket. “Take it back, please,” I said, “or my mother will be very angry.”
      “Auntie indeed has a heart of gold,” my cousin said in admiration, which was emphasized with a resigned movement of the head.
Having carried out mother’s injunction, I returned to her side. She half rose from her lying position and asked, “Did he take it back?”
     “NO, he wouldn’t. I jammed it into his pocket.”
      Mother’s head dropped back onto the pillow. She was silent for a long, long moment, and then let out a deep, deep sign. I hurried over to the head of her bed and inquired concernedly, “Are you OK?”      She stroked my face with her emaciated hand and muttered, “When ever will you learn the ways of the world?”
      “Have I done anything wrong?” I asked in trepidation.
Trying hard to compose her features into smile, she let into her thought. “I’m seriously ill. Shouldn’t he, my nephew, give me 100 yuan?”
      Thoroughly enlightened as to her real intention, I wheeled about, ready to catch my cousin again. She stopped me by gripping the hem of my coat, and murmured, “You’re wrong again.”
