Youth,青春寄语

时间:2007-6-12栏目:英语四级作文

                Youth
      Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of pink cheeks, red lips and flexible knees; it is a matter of will, a quality of imagination, a vigor of the emotion;it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.
     Youth means a dispositional control of courage over cowardice, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.
      Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.
      Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being's heart the looking forward to wonder, the endless child-like appetite of what's next and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station: so long as it is receiving messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from God, you are young.
      When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are up to catch waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at 80.

青春寄语
    青春不是人生的一个时期,而是一种心境、,青春不是 指粉红色的面颊、红润的嘴唇和灵活的膝盖,而是指坚强的意志、丰富的想象和激越的情感。青春是生命深处的一泓清泉。
    青春是一种气质:勇猛果敢而不是怯懦退缩,渴望冒险而不是贪图安逸。一个60岁的老人身上常常散发着这种气息,而20岁的青年身上倒未必可寻。没有人会单纯因为年岁增长而衰老,而一旦丧失理想,就会真正变老。
    年岁也许会在皮肤上生出皱纹,而热情不在则会使心灵起皱。忧虑、恐惧、自卑都会使人心灰意懒,一蹶不振。
    无论60岁还是16岁,每一个人心里都怀有对新奇事物的向往,都会像儿童一样对未来充满永不衰减的憧憬,都能在生活的游戏中汲取快乐。在你我的心灵中央都有一座无线电台:只要它正在接受其他·人和上帝发出的美丽、希望、快乐、勇气和力量的信息,你就会永远年轻。
    当你的天线
