他的名字叫弗莱明,是一个贫苦的农民。一天,他正在为家庭生计而忙碌时,忽然听到附近沼泽地传来呼救声。
His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.
他丢下农具,向沼泽地跑去。只见一个男孩惊恐万分地在泥潭里挣扎尖叫,试图脱身,淤泥已经到了他的腰部。农夫弗莱明把男孩从恐怖的慢性死亡边缘救了回来。
There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
第二天,一辆豪华的四轮马车驶进了这个苏格兰人所在的偏僻的村庄。一位翩翩、衣着优雅的贵族从车里走出来,自称是农夫弗莱明所救小孩的父亲。
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.
“我想报答你,”贵族说。“你救了我孩子的命。”
"I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life." "No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied, waving off the offer.
“我不能因为这个接受报答,”那个苏格兰农民摆手拒绝了。
At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel. "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.
这时候,农夫自家的儿子刚好走到自家茅舍门口。“这是你的儿子吗?”贵族说道。
"Yes," the farmer replied proudly.
“是的,”农夫自豪地说。
"I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.
“这样吧,让我把你的儿子带走,给他提供良好的教育。如果这孩子像他父亲,他就一定会成为令人骄傲的男子汉。”
And that he did.
于是他就那样做了。
Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time, he graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming,the discoverer of Penicillin.
终于有一天农夫的儿子从伦敦圣玛丽医院医学院毕业了,后来成了享誉世界的青霉素发现者——著名的亚历山大•弗莱明爵士。数年后,那位贵族的儿子因肺炎病倒了。什么救了他?青霉素。
Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia. What saved his life this time? Penicillin.
那位贵族的名字叫什么呢?伦道夫•丘吉尔勋爵。他儿子的名字呢?温斯顿•丘吉尔爵士。
The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill. His son's name? Sir Winston Churchill.
有人曾说:
Someone once said:
一报还一报。不要因为挣钱而工作。不要因为曾经受到过伤害就不再付出爱。不要因为有人观看就不再尽情地跳舞。
What goes around comes around. Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching.
