英语美文:等待的智慧
 等待也是一种智慧。人生,要学会坚持,也要学会放弃;要学会寻找,也要学会等待。等待并不是胆小,而是准备;不是懦弱,而是智慧。机会需要把握,也需要等待。如果不等准备好便出发,那么可能就是失败。
  The older I get (I’m 53) the more I realize that life often moves at a slower pace than I’d like. This runs contrary to the view today that life is moving faster than the speed of light, that we’re all running around so quickly that we don’t have the time to think. Yes, we have picked up the pace due to technology, but there still exists a time frame that sometimes runs as slowly as snails.
  随着年龄增长(我53岁),我愈发意识到生活的节奏比我想的要慢得多。这与今天的关于生活的速度比光速快,我们四处奔忙而没有时间去思考的观点背道而驰。是的,科技的发展让我们得跟上节奏,但仍有这样的一种时间框架,有时和蜗牛一样慢。


  Furthermore, I have learned that rushing things can often be a form of suicide. If we try to speed up the natural pace of existence, it can be harmful.
  此外,我知道,行事匆匆往往像是自杀的一种方式。如果我们试图加快自然的速度,则可能是无益的。
  Lately, I’ve noticed the importance of waiting patiently in three areas. Let’s look at them below.
  最近,我注意到了耐心等待的重要性的三个方面。让我们来一起看看。
  Waiting out people to respond to you.
  等待人们对你的回应。


  I learned the importance of this kind of waiting when I was dating my future husband. Stephen was a shy, cautious1 young man. I fell in love with him at first sight, and I really wanted to call him and move the relationship forward. Stephen wasn’t calling me, and I so wanted to communicate with him. But I knew if I was too pushy2, he might be turned off.
  当我和我的未来丈夫约会的时候,我了解到了这种等待的重要性。史蒂芬是一个害羞,谨慎的年轻人。我第一眼看到他就爱上了他。我真的很想打电话给他,把关系向前推进一点。史蒂芬没有打电话给我,我很想和他聊一下。但我知道如果我太积极了,他可能就被吓跑了。
  In a kind of “love promise,” I purchased a tea set for him, which included a tea cup, honey sticks and a box of peppermint3 tea. I loved tea, and I wanted to share this delicious drink with him. While I was ordering the set through the mail, I prayed a silent prayer, “Dear Lord, I am purchasing this tea set with the hopes that one day soon Stephen and I can sit down and share a wonderful cup of tea and get to know each other.”
  沉浸在一种“爱的承诺”中,我买了一套茶具给他,包括一个茶壶,蜂蜜搅拌棒和一盒薄荷茶。我喜欢茶,我想和他一起分享这美味的饮料。当我在邮件中订购的时候,我默默祈祷着,“上帝啊,我购买了这套茶具,希望不久后有一天,史蒂芬和我可以坐下一起分享一壶美妙的茶,互相了解。”
