拉菲娱乐 - 美文 | Life’s a Cafeteria 生活就像自助餐

落叶在空中盘旋,谱写着一曲感恩的乐章,那是大树对滋养它大地的感恩;白云在蔚蓝的天空中飘荡,绘画着那一幅幅感人的画面,那是白云对哺育它的蓝天的感恩。因为感恩才会有这个多彩的社会,因为感恩才会有真挚的友情。拉菲娱乐官网

A friend’s grandfather came to America from Eastern Europe. After settling down at Ellis Island, he went into a cafeteria in lower Manhattan to get something to eat. He sat down at an empty table and waited for someone to take his order. Of course nobody did. Finally, a woman with a tray full of food sat down opposite him and informed him how a cafeteria worked.

一个敌人的祖父从东欧到美国来。在埃利斯岛安排下来后,他去曼哈顿下城的一家自助餐厅用饭。他在一张空桌子边坐下,等候跑堂来点餐,固然没有人来号召他。最初,一名女士拿着满满一托盘食品走过去坐在他对面,并通知他自助

餐厅怎么选餐。

“Start out at that end,” she said. “Just go along the line and pick out what you want. At the other end they’ll tell you how much you have to pay.”

她说:“ 从餐厅的那端开始,沿着步队向前走,筛选你想要的货色,在餐厅的别的一端会有人通知你该付若干钱。”

 “I soon learned that’s how everything works in America,” the grandfather told a friend. “Life’s a cafeteria here. You can get anything you want as long as you are willing to pay the price. You can even get success. But you’ll never get it if you wait for someone to bring it to you. You have to get up and get it yourself.”

 “接着我很快理解到这就是美国人的生活方式”,敌人的祖父对一个敌人说,“在这里,生活就像自助餐。你可以去要你想要的任何货色,只有你违心负担它们的价钱。你也能够取得胜利。然而假如你甚么都不做,只等着他人把它送到你身旁的话,那是永久都不可能的。你必需行动起来,必需本人去追求它。
