一、英语文章阅读
1、Companionship of Books - 以书为伴
1、 A man may usually be known by the books he reads as well as by the company he keeps; for there is a companionship of books as well as of men; and one should always live in the best company, whether it be of books or of men.

2、A good book may be among the best of friends. It is the same today that it always was, and it will never change. It is the most patient and cheerful of companions. It does not turn its back upon us in times of adversity or distress. It always receives us with the same kindness; amusing and instructing us in youth, and comforting and consoling us in age.

3、Men often discover their affinity to each other by the mutual love they have for a book just as two persons sometimes discover a friend by the admiration which both entertain for a third. There is an old proverb, ‘Love me, love my dog.” But there is more wisdom in this:” Love me, love my book.” The book is a truer and higher bond of union. Men can think, feel, and sympathize with each other through their favorite author. They live in him together, and he in them.

4、 A good book is often the best urn of a life enshrining the best that life could think out; for the world of a man’s life is, for the most part, but the world of his thoughts. Thus the best books are treasuries of good words, the golden thoughts, which, remembered and cherished, become our constant companions and comforters.

5、 Books possess an essence of immortality. They are by far the most lasting products of human effort. Temples and statues decay, but books survive. Time is of no account with great thoughts, which are as fresh today as when they first passed through their author’s minds, ages ago. What was then said and thought still speaks to us as vividly as ever from the printed page. The only effect of time have been to sift out the bad products; for nothing in literature can long survive e but what is really good.

6、Books introduce us into the best society; they bring us into the presence of the greatest minds that have ever lived. We hear what they said and did; we see the as if they were really alive; we sympathize with them, enjoy with them, grieve with them; their experience becomes ours, and we feel as if we were in a measure actors with them in the scenes which they describe.

7、The great and good do not die, even in this world. Embalmed in books, their spirits walk abroad. The book is a living voice. It is an intellect to which on still listens.

译:
1、通常看一个读些什么书就可知道他的为人,就像看他同什么人交往就可知道他的为人一样,因为有人以人为伴,也有人以书为伴。无论是书友还是朋友,我们都应该以最好的为伴。

2、好书就像是你最好的朋友。它始终不渝,过去如此,现在如此,将来也永远不变。它是最有耐心,最令人愉悦的伴侣。在我们穷愁潦倒,临危遭难时,它也不会抛弃我们,对我们总是一如既往地亲切。在我们年轻时,好书陶冶我们的性情,增长我们的知识;到我们年老时,它又给我们以慰藉和勉励。

3、人们常常因为喜欢同一本书而结为知已,就像有时两个人因为敬慕同一个人而成为朋友一样。有句古谚说道:“爱屋及屋。”其实“爱我及书”这句话蕴涵更多的哲理。书是更为真诚而高尚的情谊纽带。人们可以通过共同喜爱的作家沟通思想,交流感情,彼此息息相通,并与自己喜欢的作家思想相通,情感相融。

4、 好书常如最精美的宝器,珍藏着人生的思想的精华,因为人生的境界主要就在于其思想的境界。因此,最好的书是金玉良言和崇高思想的宝库,这些良言和思想若铭记于心并多加珍视,就会成为我们忠实的伴侣和永恒的慰藉。

5、书籍具有不朽的本质,是为人类努力创造的最为持久的成果。寺庙会倒坍,神像会朽烂,而书却经久长存。对于伟大的思想来说,时间是无关紧要的。多年前初次闪现于作者脑海的伟大思想今日依然清新如故。时间惟一的作用是淘汰不好的作品,因为只有真正的佳作才能经世长存。

6、 书籍介绍我们与最优秀的人为伍,使我们置身于历代伟人巨匠之间,如闻其声,如观其行,如见其人,同他们情感交融,悲喜与共,感同身受。我们觉得自己仿佛在作者所描绘的舞台上和他们一起粉墨登场。

7、即使在人世间,伟大杰出的人物也永生不来。他们的精神被载入书册,传于四海。书是人生至今仍在聆听的智慧之声,永远充满着活力。

2、Just for Today - 就为了今天
1、 Just for today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

2、Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."
 
3、Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes.

4、Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

5、Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways. I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out: If anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two things I don‘t want to do—just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt: they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

6、Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit, and try not to improve or regulate anybody but myself.

7、Just for today I will have a program, I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

8、Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

9、 Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful, and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

译:
1、就为了今天,我将尽力只度过今天而不立刻去解决终身的问题。对一件令我沮丧而又必须坚持一辈子的事,我只能坚持十二个小时。

2、 就为了今天,我会很快乐。亚伯拉罕-林肯说过,“大多数人都是决定想怎么高兴就怎么高兴。”这已经被认为是真理。

3、就为了今天,我会做自我调整适应事物本来的面目,而不是想方设法使每一件事满足自己的欲望。当机会来临的时候我会抓住它。

4、就为了今天,我会尽力心强志坚。我会学习,学一些有用的东西。我不会做一个精神上的流浪汉。我会读一些需要努力、思考和注意力集中的东西。

5、就为了今天,我会用三种方法来磨炼我的灵魂。我会做对某人有利的事但不能被发现,若有人发现了就不算数。我将会做至少两件我不愿做的事情——只为了磨练。我不会让任何人感到我的感情受到了伤害:它们可能受到了伤害,但今天我不想表现出来。

6、 就为了今天,我会过得很惬意。看起来我达到了最佳状态,穿着得体、讲话谦虚、行为礼貌、一点不吹毛求疵,尽量改进和调节自己而不是别人。

7、就为了今天,我会制定一个计划,我也许不会严格地遵守它,但我一定要有计划。我会避免两种错误:仓促行事和优柔寡断。

8、就为了今天,我将会独自静静地呆上半小时放松。在这半小时里,某个时刻,我会日后对我的生活有个更好的看法。

9、就为了今天,我将不再害怕。尤其我不会再害怕享受美丽的事物,并且相信我给予世界的,世界也会给予我。

二、经典英语文章阅读
1、积极看待每一天
      If your life feels like it is lacking the power that you want and the motivation that you need, sometimes all you have to do is shift your point of view.

      如果你觉得心有余力不足,觉得缺乏前进的动力,有时候你只需要改变思维的角度。

      By training your thoughts to concentrate on the bright side of things, you are more likely to have the incentive to follow through on your goals. You are less likely to be held back by negative ideas that might limit your performance.

      试着训练自己的思想朝好的一面看,这样你就会汲取实现目标的动力,而不会因为消极沉沦停滞不前。

      Your life can be enhanced, and your happiness enriched, when you choose to change your perspective. Don't leave your future to chance, or wait for things to get better mysteriously on their own. You must go in the direction of your hopes and aspirations. Begin to build your confidence, and work through problems rather than avoid them. Remember that power is not necessarily control over situations, but the ability to deal with whatever comes your way.

      一旦变换看问题的角度,你的生活会豁然开朗,幸福快乐会接踵而来。别交出掌握命运的主动权,也别指望局面会不可思议的好转。你必须与内心希望与热情步调一致。建立自信,敢于与困难短兵相接,而非绕道而行。记住,力量不是驾驭局势的法宝,无坚不摧的能力才是最重要的。

      Always believe that good things are possible, and remember that mistakes can be lessons that lead to discoveries. Take your fear and transform it into trust; learn to rise above anxiety and doubt. Turn your "worry hours" into "productive hours". Take the energy that you have wasted and direct it toward every worthwhile effort that you can be involved in. You will see beautiful things happen when you allow yourself to experience the joys of life. You will find happiness when you addopt positive thinking into your daily routine and make it an important part of your world.

      请坚信,美好的降临并非不可能,失误也许是成功的前奏。将惶恐化作信任,学会超越担忧和疑虑。让“诚惶诚恐”的时光变得“富有成效”。不要挥霍浪费精力,将它投到有意义的事情中去。当你下意识品尝生命的欢愉时,美好就会出现。当你积极地看待生活,并以此作为你的日常准则时,你就会找到快乐的真谛。

2、爱是幸福生活的关键所在
      As we all know, love is the crux of a happy life. 

      众所周知,爱是幸福生活的关键所在。

      Love helps us stay calm and serene even when things are tough. 

      爱帮助我们在时事艰难的时候保持沉着,平静的心态。

      It can carry us through the hard times. 

      它能帮我们度过苦难的时光。

      Love looks for ways to be of service. 

      爱会自己寻找助人的途径。

      Love is enjoying the surprises of life,

      爱是享受生命中的诸多惊喜,

      and being totally delighted with what life gives you. 

      爱是完全满足于生活的给予。

      Love is the key to happiness 

      爱是幸福生活的钥匙,

      and it is a real blessing to others.  

      爱是对他人真挚的祝福。

      People who love make the world a kind and gentle place and other people feel safe around them. 

      心中有爱的人让世界充满仁慈和儒雅之风,让周围的人感到安全。

      They appreciate differences instead of making them a cause for prejudice or fighting.  

      他们求同存异,而不是把分歧作为成见或者争执的理由。

三、精选英语文章阅读
1、艺术 Art
      Since I was very small, my parents sent me to learn painting. They thought I could understand art and mastered one skill. This experience brings me the sense of art. I have my own understanding of it.

      在我很小的时候,父母就送我去学习绘画,他们认为我可以因此掌握一门技术。这次经历给我带来了艺术感,我对艺术有了自己的理解。

      On the one hand, art is an important way to express people's opinion. When we see the pictures, the difference between classical and ordinary paintings lies in the thoughts. The famous artists implant their ideas in the pictures, which are admitted by the public, so the value of arts can be seen. Some famous artists expressed their unique opinion and gives arts great meaning.

      一方面,艺术是人们表达想法的重要方式。当我们看到这些画时,其实经典与普通绘画的区别在于思想。著名的艺术家们把他们的想法注入了画中,这是公众所认可的,所以艺术的价值是可以看到的。一些著名的艺术家表达了他们独特的观点,赋予了艺术很重要的意义。

      On the other hand, art is not only from works, but also from life. For example, my mother cooks the delicious food. Everybody speaks highly of her. So her food brings people great happiness, which makes the food an art for me. What's more, my friends is good at communicating. The way she talks can convince other easily, so I call the way she communicates as an art.

      另一方面,艺术不仅来自作品,也来自生活。比如,我妈妈做的食物很好吃,大家都对她赞不绝口,所以她的食物给人们带来了快乐,也让我觉得食物对我来说是一门艺术。更重要的是,我的朋友善于沟通交流。她的说话方式很容易说服别人,所以我把她的沟通方式叫做艺术。

      In all, for me, art is around. It brings people a way to see the world or makes our life wonderful. 

      总之,对我来说,艺术是存在的,它可以给人们带来看待世界的另一种方式,或者让我们的生活变得精彩。

2、幸福 Happiness
      The definition of happiness varies from person to person. Most people believe that earning a lot of money and living the comfortable life are the symbol of great happiness. It is true that making great achievement is our target, so we work so hard to realize our goals. But as we grow up, we realize the different definitions of happiness.

      幸福的定义因人而异,大多数人认为赚大钱,过舒适的生活就是幸福的象征。确实,取得伟大的成就是我们的目标,所以我们努力去实现我们的目标。但随着我们的长大,我们意识到关于幸福不一样的定义。

     When I graduated from college, the job I chose was far away from home. I never thought about the distance between me and my parents. But in the first year of working, I met some difficult time in my career, just like other young people. At that moment, all I could do was to face the challenge by myself, because I didn’t want my parents to worry about me. Every time when I called home, my parents always comforted me by asking me to go home often. I realized the happiness for me was to have my parents stood by my side.

      我大学毕业的时候我选择了离家很远的工作,我从来没有想过关于我和父母之间距离的。但工作的第一年,我的职业生涯就像其他年轻人一样遇到了一些困难。那一刻,我唯一能做的就是独自面对挑战,因为我不想让父母为我担心。每次我打电话回家,父母总是安慰我,让我常回家。我意识到父母能够陪在我身边就是我的幸福。

      As an ordinary girl, my definition of happiness is to company my parents as often as possible. Nothing can compare the time to stay with my families. 

      作为一个普通的女孩,我对幸福的定义是尽可能多地陪伴父母。没有什么能比和家人呆在一起的时间更宝贵了。
