Something to Look Forward to

杨航

Yang Hang

细娃盼过年,大人盼开春。儿时,对于大人的盼是不能理解的,但过年,对我来说,可是一年的大盼头了。过年,不但好玩,且有肉吃,那气氛是迷人的。年一过,又盼日子快些流,好流来又一个春节。

Little children look forward to the arrival of lunar New Year, adults to that of spring. When achild I could't understand what the elders hoped for. But New Year's Day was always thegreatest red-letter day of all the year, for it meant the nicest food as well as a lot of fun, whichwas really fascinating. As soon as the festival was over, another one was my dream and Iwished time flew as fast as possible.

在盼中,日子真的流得飞快,转眼上了小学,继而初中,然后高中,最后大学;盼的欲望更加强烈,盼的内容也渐渐丰富了:盼有好成绩毕业,盼有一份好工作,盼事业有成,盼挣钱替父母分忧,盼有一个好爱人……不知不觉,天天踩着石阶而上,自己竟成了一个大男人,一个挣钱养家糊口的忙碌人了。

Days spent in expectation come and go really very fast. Very soon I finished primary school,went to junior and senior middle school, and finally to college; with ever greater desire for morevaried things: for graduation with honours, for an ideal job, for a successful career, for moreearnings to share my parents' burden, for a satisfactory life...Climbing the upward steps ofhope I had become a fully grown man before I was aware of it, a busy breadwinner with a familyon my hands.

生活开始变得复杂。然而,无论自己是否变得庸俗,变得伟大,盼头依然天天有:盼信件,盼稿件被采用,盼发奖金,盼某事满意结果,盼一次聚会、一次旅行……人就在盼中找到了依托。

Life began to show its various facets. Whether I have turned more vulgar or great, I havealways something to look forward to. It may be arrival of a letter, publication of an article, thebonus-distributing day, a gratifying result of something, a get-together or a pleasuretrip...Such expectations serve as a prop to a person's faith in life.

没有盼头的日子是苍白不可想象的。人,得天天有点什么盼头,生活才不至于暗淡。有了盼头,会觉得太阳每天都是新的。不管是望梅止渴,还是画饼充饥,它都会激励你不停手中的桨,去追逐哪怕是一星微小的火光。

A day without hope would be unimaginably pale. There must be something to look forward toeach day to brighten one's life and keep it out of shadows. To a person cherishing hopes everymorning rises a new sun. Even if it is a fantasy or an illusion, so long as it shows a ray ofhope it still urges you on in pursuit of that little sparkle without letup.

土地去掉水份,就成了沙漠;人没有了盼,还剩什么?小盼头支撑人的一天,大盼头支撑人的一生。

人,是绝不能没有盼头的。

Deprived of moisture content, soil turns into desert. Deprived of hope, what is there left to aperson? A small hope sustains a person for a day, a great one for a lifetime.

Human beings cannot do without something to look forward to.
