英语短文:Ethusiasm Takes You Further热情带你前进
 
Years ago, when I started looking for my first job, wise advisers urged, "Barbara, be enthusiastic! Enthusiasm will take you further than any amount of experience."
 
How right they were. Enthusiastic people can turn a boring drive into an adventure, extra work into opportunity and strangers into friends.
 
"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is the paste that helps you hang in there when the going gets tough. It is the inner voice that whispers, '1 can do it!"when others shout, 'No, you can't."
 
It took years and years for the early work of Barbara Mc一Clintock,a geneticist who won the 1983 Nobel Prize in medicine, to be generally accepted. Yet she didn' t let up on her experiments. Work was such a deep pleasure for her that she never thought of stopping.
 
We are all born with wide-eyed, enthusiastic wonder as anyone knows who has ever seen an infant' s delight at the jingle of keys or the scurrying of a beetle.
 
It is this childlike wonder that gives enthusiastic people such a youthful air, whatever their age.
 
At 90, cellist Pablo Casals would start his day by playing Bach. As the music flowed through his fingers, his stooped shoulders would straighten and joy would reappear in his eyes.Music, for Casals, was an elixir that made life a never ending adventure. As author and poet Samuel Ullman once wrote, "Years wrinkle the skin,but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul."
 
How do you rediscover the enthusiasm of your childhood? The answer, I believe, lies in the word itself. "Enthusiasm" comes from the Greek and means "God within". And what is God within is but an abiding sense of love-proper love of self (self-acceptance) and, from that, love of others.
 
Enthusiastic people also love what they do, regardless of money or title or power. If we cannot do what we love as a full-time career, we can do it as a part-time avocation,like the head of a state who paints, the nun who runs marathons,the executive who handcrafts furniture.
 
Elizabeth Layton of Wellsville,Kan,was 68 before she began to draw. This activity ended bouts of depression that had plagued her for at least 30 years, and the quality of her work led one critic to say, "I am tempted to call Layton a genius."Elizabeth has rediscovered her enthusiasm.
 
We can't afford to waste tears on "might-have-beens".We need to turn the tears into sweat as we go after "what-can-be".
 
We need to live each moment wholeheartedly, with all our senses-finding pleasure in the fragrance of a back-yard garden,the crayoned picture of a six-year-old, the enchanting beauty of a rainbow. It is such enthusiastic love of life that puts a sparkle in our eyes, a lilt in our steps and smooths the wrinkles from our souls.

 
多年前,我开始寻求第一份工作。聪慧的辅导员们催促说:"芭芭拉,热情点!热情会比任何经验让你走得更远。"
 
他们说得真对啊!热情的人能让一次枯燥的旅行变成冒险,超额的工作变成机会,陌生人变成朋友。
 
"没有热情,什么大事也千不了。"拉尔夫·沃尔德·埃莫森这样写道。它像浆糊把你粘在那里,当困难沉重时你仍能坚持。当别人冲你喊着:"不行,你不行"时,它是内心的低语:"我能行!"
 
1983年诺贝尔医学奖获得者,遗传学家芭芭拉·麦克林多克的早期研究工作在很多年后才被广泛认可,但是她并没有停止实验工作。工作本身给她带来许多乐趣,她从未想过要停止。
 
我们天生好奇,充满热望,你看新出生的婴儿对钥匙的叮铃作响和疾驶而过的甲壳虫总是兴致勃勃。
 
是这般孩童似的好奇给了热情的人这般年轻生动的气韵,不管他们的实际有多老。

90岁高龄的大提琴演奏家帕布罗·卡萨尔仍然以演奏巴赫的曲子作为一天的序曲。当音乐从指间流出,他拘楼的肩膀便会舒展,喜悦重新浮现在他的双眼里。音乐对于卡萨尔来说不亚于仙丹,使他的人生变成一场永不停息的历险。正如作家、诗人萨缨尔·乌尔曼曾经写道:"时间令皮肤起皱,放弃热情则令灵魂起皱。"
 
你该如何重获儿时的热情?我相信,答案在这个词身上。"热情"来自于希腊语"内心的神",内心的神就是坚持不懈的爱,适当地爱自己即自我接纳,然后衍生出来爱别人。
 
热情的人也会爱他们从事的工作,不管金钱、名气或权力。如果我们不能全职做自己热爱的事情,也可以兼职做呀,就像画画的州长,跑马拉松的修女和做家具的行政长官。
 
住在堪萨斯州威尔士维尔市的伊丽莎白·莱顿,68岁时开始画画,这一举动令烦扰了她至少30年的抑郁症不治而愈,而且她的作品令一个评论家说:"我忍不住要管莱顿叫天才。"伊丽莎白重获了她的热情。
 
我们浪费不起眼泪在"如果当初那样该多好"之类的想法上。我们应该将眼泪化为汗水,辛勤追赶"将会怎样"的梦想。
 
我们需要每分每秒都全身心地生活,用全副感官去感觉后院花园的花香,六岁孩童的蜡笔画,美丽彩虹的魔力。对生活的热情和爱让我们的眼眸熠熠闪光,令我们的步履轻盈并抚平我们灵魂上的皱纹。
