朗读日记:在图书馆三楼走廊的角落,有位长发飘飘的女生对着手机练习英语,作为暑假即将参加雅思考试的学生,为了培养口语的语感,她的备考方法是每天从关注的公众号推送中选择三篇英语名篇,反复朗读直到熟练为止。听完她的学习故事,我邀请她来朗读她手机中的这段散文《born to win 》作者:Muriel James& Dorothy Jongeward‍。——图书馆吴老师,记于2022年5月17日。


Each human being is born as something new, something that never existed before. Each is born with the capacity to win at life. Each person has a unique way of seeing, hearing, touching, tasting and thinking. Each has his or her own unique potential capabilities and limitations. Each can be a significant thinking aware and creative being-a productive person, a winner.

每个人的出生都是前所未有的新事物的诞生。在生活中取得成功,是每个人与生来的能力。并且,每个人都拥有其独特的观察、听触摸、品尝和思考的方式;有独特的潜在能力和自身的局限性;都能成为一个优秀的有思想的明白事理及富有创造力的人;都会是一个成就非的人,一个赢者。

The word winner and loser have many meanings. When we refer to a person as a winner, we do not mean one who makes someone else lose. To us,a winner is one who responds authentically by being credible, trustworthy, responsive, and  genuine, both as an individual and as a member of a society.

“赢者”与败者”两词皆有众多涵义。称某人为赢者,并不是说别人因他失去了什么对我们而言,无论身为个人还是作为社会的一员,赢者总是持诚信、可靠、积诚的态度,真实地回应一切。‍
