下面,双语君(微信ID:Chinadaily_Mobile)就给小可爱们送上这些古语的英文翻译!掏出小本本一起来学习吧!

天道酬勤,春华秋实

天道酬勤,春华秋实。中国人民坚持聚精会神搞建设、坚持改革开放不动摇,持之以恒,锲而不舍,推动中国发生了翻天覆地的变化。

Heaven rewards those who work hard, and flowers in spring come to fruition in autumn. The focused endeavor in national development and unwavering commitment to reform and opening-up of the Chinese people have brought enormous changes to the country.

“天道酬勤”

出自《书·大诰》

“天閟毖我成功,天亦惟用勤毖我民”

“春华秋实”

“华”同“花”

春天开花,秋天结实

“天行有常”,“应之以治则吉”

“天行有常”,“应之以治则吉”。中国进行改革开放,顺应了中国人民要发展、要创新、要美好生活的历史要求,契合了世界各国人民要发展、要合作、要和平生活的时代潮流。

An ancient Chinese classic teaches that heaven has its own law and those who embrace it will prosper. China's reform and opening-up meets its people's aspiration for development, innovation and a better life. It also meets the global trend toward development, cooperation and peace.

“天行有常”,“应之以治则吉”

出自《荀子·天论》

“天行有常,不为尧存,不为桀亡;

应之以治则吉,应之以乱则凶。”

“不畏浮云遮望眼”

我们要不畏浮云遮望眼,善于拨云见日,把握历史规律,认清世界大势。

We must not let our vision be blocked by floating clouds.Instead, we must dispel the clouds to see the sun, as we say in Chinese, so as to have a keen grasp of the law of history and the trend of the world.

“不畏浮云遮望眼,自缘身在最高层”

出自王安石《登飞来峰》

飞来山上千寻塔,闻说鸡鸣见日升。

不畏浮云遮望眼,自缘身在最高层。

“苟利于民,不必法古;苟周于事,不必循俗”

中国的先人们早在2500多年前就认识到:“苟利于民,不必法古;苟周于事,不必循俗”。

A Chinese philosopher recognized as early as over 2,500 years ago that one doesn't have to follow a beaten path if he wishes to benefit the people and one doesn't have to observe old conventions if he wishes to get things done.

“苟利于民,不必法古

苟周于事,不必循俗”

出自《淮南子·汜论训》

如果对民众有利

就不必非要效法古制

如果适合实际情况

就不必一定要遵循旧俗

“积土而为山,积水而为海”

“积土而为山,积水而为海。”幸福和美好未来不会自己出现,成功属于勇毅而笃行的人。

As a Chinese saying goes, "A mountain is formed by accumulation of earth and an ocean is formed by accumulation of water."Happiness and a bright future will not appear automatically; success only favors those with courage and perseverance.

“积土而为山,积水而为海”

出自《荀子·儒效》

泥土堆积起来能成为高山

细流汇积起来能形成大海

看了上面古语的翻译,是不是觉得意犹未尽?
