The man totally depressed
绝望的男人
 

       He was standing by the side of the road speaking through the open window of my car. His wife had left him. He had no job. Each day was a burden, and worse yet, he was a burden to the world. In his words, he was ‘totally useless.”
       他站在路旁,透过我摇下的车窗和我说话:他的妻子离他而去,工作也丢了;没货一天对于他来说都是个负担;更糟糕的是,他还是世界的负担。用他的话来说,他“一无是处”。
       I tried to cheer him up with some words of hope, but he was firm in his belief. I left him with some optimistic thought and darted into a U-turn, happy to go to something more cheerful.
       我试着用充满希望的言语让他振作起来,但他的观念已根深蒂固。我怀着些乐观的想法和他道别,然后快速地掉头,满心欢喜地去做点更有意思的事。
       Suddenly he screamed, ‘Stop!” I slammed on the brakes just in time to see an extremely fast moving car whiz by. I said to him, “If you hadn’t called out, I would have been dead now. A few second ago you felt useless without purpose, and now you have saved my life! From this moment on, every good deed I do will also be credited to your account.”His face lit up, as the many months of depression fell away.
      突然他大叫起来:“快停!” 说事迟那时快,我猛地踩住刹车,只见一辆车疾驰而过。问i对他说:“如果你没有大叫,我现在可能已经葬身了。刚刚你还觉得自己漫无目的、毫无用处,但现在你却救了我的命啊!从这一刻开始,我所作的每一件好事都有你的功劳。”他的脸变得明亮起来,好几个月以来的阴霾被驱散了。
       There is a dawn, and even the darkest nights do pass. No one knows what the next moment holds and deny hope is to deny the fact that, “This too will pass.”
       人生必然要经历黄昏,甚至是漆黑的夜晚。没有人知道下一刻会发生什么,放弃希望就是否认一个事实:这一切终究会过去。
