坚持梦想的罗伯茨

更新时间:2011-08-29    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

I have a friend named Monty Roberts who owns a horse ranch in San Ysidro. He has let me use his house to put on fund-raising events to raise money for youth at risk programs.

我有个朋友叫蒙提·罗伯茨,他在圣思多罗有座牧马场。我常借用他宽敞的住宅举办募款活动,以便为帮助青少年的计划筹备基金。

The last time I was there he introduced me by saying, "I want to tell you why I let Jack use my house. It all goes back to a story about a young man who was the son of an itinerant horse trainer who would go from stable to stable, race track to race track, farm to farm and ranch to ranch, training horses. As a result, the boy's high school career was continually interrupted. When he was a senior, he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up."

上次活动时,他在致辞中提到:“我让杰克借用住宅是有原因的。这故事跟一个小男孩有关,他的父亲是位马术师,他从小就必须跟着父亲东奔西跑,男孩的求学过程并不顺利。高中时,有次老师叫全班同学写报告,题目是长大后的愿望。”

 

"That night he wrote a seven-page paper describing his goal of someday owning a horse ranch. He wrote about his dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch, showing the location of all the buildings, the stables and the track. Then he drew a detailed floor plan for a 4,000-square-foot house that would sit on a 200-acre dream ranch."

“那晚他洋洋洒洒地写了七张纸,描述他的伟大愿望,那就是想拥有一座属于自己的牧马农场,并且仔细画了一张200亩农场的设计图,上面标有马厩、跑道等的位置,然后在这一大片农场中央,还要建造一栋占地4000平方英尺的巨宅。”

"He put a great deal of his heart into the project and the next day he handed it in to his teacher. Two days later he received his paper back. On the front page was a large red F with a note that read, ‘See me after class.’"

“他花了好大心血把报告完成,第二天交给了老师。两天后他拿回了报告,第一页上打了一个又红又大的F,旁边还写了一行字:下课后来见我。”

"The boy with the dream went to see the teacher after class and asked, ‘Why did I receive an F?’"

“脑中充满幻想的他下课后带着报告去找老师:‘为什么给我不及格?’”
