3、人们几乎无法将蓄意行窃的盗贼拒之门外,所能做的只是设法阻拦他片刻,从而使其暴露在巡警面前。常识告诉我们,光照是犯罪行为的障碍物。门口必须安装一盏灯,并在晚上开着。如果你碰巧是最晚一个回家,别只关门不上锁。如果你决定购买精密的电子报警系统,别忘了索要报警器的标志,并把他们张贴在窗户和门上。此外,你还可以将报警系统连接到警署。

It is almost impossible to keep a determined burglar out. All you can do is discourage him for a few minutes, thus exposing him to police patrols. Common sense tells us that lighting is a barrier to criminal activity. A light should be fixed in the doorway and switched on at nigh. Make sure/Assure yourself that you don ’t leave the door on the latch if you happen to be the last to come in. If you decide to buy a sophisticated electronic alarm system, be sure to ask for its signs and put them up on both windows and doors. In addition you may have it hooked up to a police station.

5、在感恩节的气氛中,乔治沉浸于阅读她父亲留给他的日记。他的父亲在连续两次完成环球旅行后在海上去世。这份日记使他回忆起自己与父亲一起度过的每一刻以及父亲为他所做的许多具体事情。乔治的父亲过去经常向他强调必须经历各种艰难困苦去追求卓越。及时今天,她依然记得父亲如何引用“懂得感激是高尚者的标志”这句伊索名言来交到他要把懂得感激放在最重要的位置。

Amid the atmosphere of Thanksgiving George was immersed in the diary left to him by his father, who died at sea after he completed two successive trips around the world. The diary brought back every moment George had spent with his father and many of the specific things his father did on his behalf. George ’s father used to impress on him the need to undergo all kinds of hardship in quest of excellence. Even today, George still remembers how his father would quote Aesop ’s famous saying “Gratitude is the sign of noble souls” and tell him to accord the greatest importance

to it.

6、我们到处都能看到“抢眼”的青年艺术家。他们要么一年四季穿着破旧的牛仔裤;要么大冬天的也打赤脚;要么饮酒过度;要么就是抱着创作一部杰作的幻想,实际上并不做任何创作的事,其实,他们中很多人只不过为了看上去像名艺术家,或为了同其他艺术家“保持一致”才这么做的。他们忘了,只有通过不懈努力才能获得成功。

Here and there we see young artists who stand out from other people. They may be in worn-out jeans all the year round, or walk barefoot/ in bare feet even in winter, or drink to excess, or cling to the fancy of creating a masterpiece without actually doing any creative work. In fact, many of them act like this just to look the part, or to be in tune with other artists. They have forgotten that only through persistent effort can one achieve success.
