The Big Ship

大船

Ernest looked at his fleet of ships. Usually, he used them for his firm, which imported marble statues from other countries. But today he was going fishing. And the ship he chose was his favorite. It had an elaborate painting on the side that showed a naval battle. It also had some new updates to its computer system. His favorite ship's latest acquisition was a device with a small grid to show the ship's exact location. This new accessory kept Ernest from getting lost.

歐內斯特看著他的船隊。通常他用這些船來運輸公司從其他國家進口的大理石雕像。但是今天他要去釣魚,他選擇了最喜歡額一艘船。船身上有一幅精美的油畫,描繪的是一場海戰。這艘船的計算機系統也做了一些更新。他最喜歡的這艘船的最新裝備是一個帶有小網格的設備,可以顯示這艘船的確切位置,使歐內斯特不至于迷路。

At daybreak, Ernest happily sailed the temperate waters until he was far from land. Then he saw a small boat in the distance. There was an old man standing next to its mast. He was waving his arms in the air. There was also a boy with his head hanging over the boat's edge. Ernest inferred that the boy was suffering from nausea. Both of their clothes were saturated with sea water. Ernest assumed that they were in trouble. Most people never realized, but Ernest had an innate desire to help people. He began sailing toward them, eager to facilitate their rescue and thus solve their dilemma.

黎明時,歐內斯特愉快地航行在溫帶水域,直到遠離陸地。然后他看到遠處有一只小船,船上桅桿旁邊站著一位老人。老人在空中揮舞著雙臂。船上還有一個頭垂在船邊的男孩。歐內斯特推斷那個男孩可能是暈船了。他們二人的衣服都被海水浸濕了。歐內斯特推斷他們可能遇到了麻煩。大多數人從未意識到,但歐內斯特有一種與生俱來的幫助別人的欲望。他開始向他們駛去,急于幫助他們獲救,從而解決他們的困境。

As he got closer to the boat, he was shocked by its simplicity. The boat's wood looked no stronger than cardboard, and the equipment was old. Still, there were several large fish in a pouch in the boat.

靠近那艘船時,他被它的簡樸驚呆了。船上的木頭看起來和硬紙板一樣不結實,設備也很陳舊。盡管如此,船上的袋子里還是裝著幾條大魚。

Ernest threw a large package onto the boat. He yelled, "Here! You can inflate this boat to get you back to land."

歐內斯特把一個大包裹扔到船上。他喊道,“給你!你可以用這個給船充氣,然后回到岸上。”

Get out of here! screamed the old man.

“滾開!”老人尖叫著。

Ernest was confused. "Don't you need help?" he asked. "Your ship doesn't seem adequate enough to sail so far away from land."

歐內斯特很困惑。“你不需要幫助嗎?”“你的船似乎不夠開到離陸地這么遠的地方。”

You've just scared away a huge fish, the boy said. "We waved to let you know you were too close to us."

“你嚇走了一條大魚,”男孩說。“我們揮手是想讓你知道你離我們太近了。”

Ernest turned around and headed home. He learned that it's better not to help unless asked to. Otherwise, you might not help anyone at all.

歐內斯特轉身回家。他明白了一個道理,那就是除非別人要求,不然最好不要幫忙。否則,你可能幫不到任何人。
