常挂在老外嘴边的简单英语（5） -01-7 19:: 来源： 1. You are such a guy.他真是很男人啊如果有一个男生完全符合男人的刻板形象 (stereotype)，例如好色，不爱干净的话，我们就可以直接说，"You are such a guy." 当然说这句话的时候，要特别记得强调在 guy 那个字上面例如有位比基尼美女从你面前走过，你就目不转睛地盯着人家看，这时别人就可以说你，"You are such a guy." 或是有些男生生活习惯不佳，衣丢得满地都是，你也可以对他说，"You are such a guy.". He is a pervert.他是个变态Pervert 指的是色狼的行为，例如喜欢吃女生豆腐，或是没事打电话骚扰人家，这种人我们就称之为 pervert例如有些人有怪癖，喜欢偷女生的内衣，对于这种人我们就可以说，"He is a pervert." 或是 "He is perverted."要注意一点，中文里讲的男生很「色」，但「色」这个字在英文里没有一个很确切的翻法，例如你可以用 lustful、lewd、lecherous、lascivious 或是 randy但这些字平常老美自己都蛮少用的而且中文的「色」含意比较广，从无伤大雅喜欢看路上的漂亮美眉，到严重一点的喜欢占女生便宜这种人中文里都可以说是很「色」，但在英文中，pervert 通常指的是比较严重一点的情节，例如吃豆腐、骚扰等等如果只是在路上看美眉，或是喜欢看蔡依林的写真集，我们只要说，"He is such a guy." 就行了3. Are you a stalker?你是不是跟踪别人啊？或许每个女生都会有一两次这样的不愉快经验吧一个人独自走在巷子里，一回头却发现有人在后面跟踪妳，于是妳加紧了脚步，没想到他也跟着加快了脚步，追上妳，只听见一声惨叫... 「，我只是想告诉妳，妳的钱包掉了」不骗你，这种事我就干过至于有些男生是会跟踪女生回家，这种人就叫 stalker也许是国情不同的关系，美国的 stalker 可能还不少，所以我常在电视或电影里听到 stalker 这个字像是很多的漂亮女明星，都有许多的疯狂影迷，她到哪，他们就跟到哪，这种人就叫 crazy stalker fan 英语 简单 这种 例如
我终于意识到真正的幸福来自人的精神世界，来自人的心智与灵魂诚然，在这个纷扰喧嚣的时世，想拥有宁静祥和的内心世界并非易事，这需要我们时常反省、冥思，还要自律坦然直面自己实属不易（你得有耐心，能体谅，只要可能，寻求上帝的帮助）而一旦你的精神世界能真正远离暴风骤雨和阴风邪气的侵犯，你必将获得无比丰厚的回报A Reporter Quotes His Sources It’s rather difficult in these noisy, confusing, nerve-racking days to achieve the peace of mind in which to pause a moment to reflect on what you believe in. There’s so little time and opporty to give it much thought—though it is the thing we live by; and without it, without beliefs, human existence today would hardly be bearable. My own view of life, like everyone else’s, is conditioned by personal experience. In my own case, there were two experiences, in particular, which helped to shape my beliefs years of life and work under a totalitarian regime, and a glimpse of war. Living in a totalitarian land taught me to value highly—and fiercely—the very things the dictators denied tolerance, respect others and, above all, the freedom of the human spirit. A glimpse of war filled me with wonder not only at man’s courage and capacity self-sacrifice, but at his stubborn, marvelous will to preserve, to endure, to prevail—amidst the most incredible savagery and suffering. When you saw people—civilians—who where bombed out, or who, worse, had been hounded in the concentration camps or worked to a frazzle in the slave-labor gangs—when you saw them come out of these ordeals of horror and torture, still intact as human beings, with a will to go on, with a faith still in themselves, in their fellow man, and in God, you realized that man was indestructible. You appreciated, too, that despite the corruption and cruelty of life, man somehow managed to retain great virtues love, honor, courage, self-sacrifice, compassion. It filled you with a certain pride just to be a member of the human race. It renewed your belief in your fellow men. Of course, there are many days (in this Age of Anxiety) when a human being feels awfully low and discouraged. I myself find consolation at such moments by two means trying to develop a sense of history, and renewing the quest inner life. I go back, example, to ing Plutarch. He reminds you that even in the golden days of Greece and Rome, from which so much that is splendid in our own civilization derives, there was a great deal of what we find so loathsome in life today war, strife, corruption, treason, double-crossing, intolerance, tyranny, rabble-rousing. Reading history thus gives you perspective. It enables you to see your troubles relatively. You don’t take them so seriously then. Finally, I find that most true happiness comes from one’s inner life; from the disposition of the mind and soul. Admittedly, a good inner life is difficult to achieve, especially in these trying times. It takes reflection and contemplation. And self-discipline. One must be honest with oneself, and that’s not easy. (You have to have patience and understanding. And, when you can, seek God.) But the reward of having an inner life, which no outside storm or evil turn of tune can touch, is, it seems to me, a very great one. 96What the Americans Don' t Talk About !One of the recurring questions that my students in China often ask is"What are the things they shouldn't talk about with Americans?"Taboo1) topics tend to make people feel uneasy.Every culture has these off－limits subjects.In ours,the following immediately come to mind1.Age Yes,age is a very sensitive subject t o many Americans,especially to women over age 30.In this youth obsessed) culture,the thought of growing older is a painful one and most of us,if possible,would like to have nothing to do with it.Untunately aging is one of the inevitabilities of life and it happens to the best of us.As a result,many Americans work hard to maintain a youthful appearance or at least give the illusion of youth.So the last thing they want is some one to rub their faces in harsh reality and ask the unthinkable,"How old are you exactly？"This question may result in replies like"How old do you think I am?""30ish,30something.I'm in my thirties.Let' s just leave it at that."“I can' t remember.""Oh.don't ask me that.""I stopped keeping track after I turned 30.""A lot older than what I would like to be."Anyhow,if you are dying to know someone's age,this is how you could go about finding out.First you estimate their age by their appearance and mannerism.Then you subtract ten years from that estimation.I guarantee you will get a big smile from that person who will also blush and say,"Wow.You are my best friend.I'm 38aly.Can you believe it?"You,of course,reply,"No.I really can' t.You' re kidding.You don' t look a day over.This is amazing."Now that' s one surefire way to boost someone' s ego..Weight This is one of the touchiest3) subjects．In America，it is okay，even desirable，to be thin but it is a sin and a huge embarrassment to be overweight．In fact，the thinner you are，the prettier you are considered．Flip through any American fashion magazines，you'll notice that most models are nothing more than skin and bones．A woman who sports this emaciated)，skeletal physique is called a waif，which is a thin person who appears fragile and needy．Believe it not，the waif look was the hottest look of the １９９０' s．Of course，there are obvious health related advantages to having a slender figure but please don't over diet the sake of vanity．You could potentially become a victim to horrible eating disorders like anorexia5) and bulimia6)．Americans are very weight－conscious and rarely disclose how much they weigh．．．even if they are thin and in great shape．Theree，you best not to ask．But if you absolutely have to comment on this subject，it' s always safer to say，“Oh，you look like you have lost weight ”than“ Oh，you look like you put on a few pounds．”However，if you would like to be honest but not hurtful，I recommend you choose your words carefully，perhaps by saying：“Hey，you look great．Very healthy looking．”And always remember，it' s not fat．It' s muscular．3.Income You should never ever ask how much someone' s salary is．There's no way around this one．However，it' s perfectly appropriate to ask about their job title and what they do a living．This inmation should give you some idea how much they make a year．.Matters of the Heart This is a tricky one．Sometimes you'll run into people who can't wait to pour their hearts out to you．Then there are those who make sure their personal business stays behind closed doors．The general rule is to not get too personal，too fast．You don't want others to think that you're prying into their lives．Theree，try not to ask too many questions about someone' s love life，marriage and family until you have a friendship with this person．Even then，you better wait your friend to come to you with the matters of their heart．5.Is It Real？ Many Americans are proponents of the all－natural look．Stick with what Mother Nature gave you and do the best you can with it．But how man y truly abide by this principle？With plastic surgery and products like colored contact lens，hair coloring，acrylic7) nails，etc，the answer would be：not many．I suppose some of us either like to experiment with our looks or are simply unhappy with what we're born with．As artificial as the results of these physical alterations may be，they are done to imitate nature．At the end of the day，people want others to believe they' re simply born beautiful．So don' t ruin it them by asking，“Hey，I love your eye color．Is it real？”What makes certain topics taboo？These topics may lead to disclosure of inmation that people don't want others to know about．In other words，sometimes it' s not so much that you asked the wrong question，but that you touched a sore spot．Regardless，it' s difficult to always avoid conversation landmines8) so be sensible，watch your step and try not to open a can of worms． 01957英语的骂人话 -- 3::56 来源： 英语的骂人话1.

In our hurry to get from one place to another, we failed to see anything on the way. Air travel gives you a bird’s-eye view of the world – or even less if the wing of the aircraft happens to get in your way. When you travel by car or train a blurred image of the countryside constantly smears the windows. Car drivers, in particular, are ever obsessed with the urge to go on and on they never want to stop. Is it the lure of the great motorways, or what? And as sea travel, it hardly deserves mention. It is perfectly summed up in the words of the old song ‘I joined the navy to see the world, and what did I see? I saw the sea.’ The typical twentieth-century traveler is the man who always says 'I’ve been there'. You mention the remotest, most evocative place-names in the world and someone is bound to say 'I’ve been there' meaning, 'I drove through it at 0 miles an hour on the way to somewhere else. 'When you travel at high speeds, the present means nothing you live mainly in the future because you spend most of your time looking ward to arriving at some other place. But actual arrival, when it is achieved, is meaningless. You want to move on again. By traveling like this, you suspend all experience; the present ceases to be a reality you might just as well be dead. The traveler on foot, on the other hand, lives constantly in the present. him traveling and arriving are one and the same thing he arrives somewhere with every step he makes. He experiences the present moment with his eyes, his ears and the whole of his body. At the end of his journey he feels a delicious physical weariness. He knows that sound. Satisfying sleep will be his the just reward of all true travellers.
Love of Life Two men walked slowly, one after the other, through the low water of a river. It ran cold over their feet. They had blanket packs on their backs; guns, but no bullets; matches, but no food. Suddenly the man behind fell over a stone, hurt his foot badly and called "Hey, Bill, I've hurt my foot." Bill continued without looking back. The man was alone but not lost in the empty land. He knew the way to camp, and its food and bullets. He struggled to his feet and limped on. He had not eaten two days. He picked some small round, tasteless fruits. They did not satisfy, but he knew he must eat them. In the evening he built a fire and slept like a dead man. When he woke up, he took out a small bag weighing fifteen pounds. He wasn't sure he could carry it any longer. But he couldn't leave it behind. He had to take it with him. He put it back into his pack, rose to his feet and continued. His foot hurt, but it was nothing compared with his hunger, which made him go on until darkness fell. His blanket was wet, but he knew only he was hungry. In his troubled sleep, he dreamed of rich meals. He woke up cold, sick and lost; the small bag was still with him. As he pulled himself along, the bag became heavier and heavier. He opened the bag, full of small pieces of gold. He left half the gold on a rock. 1. ______ Eleven cold, rainy days passed. Once he found some animal bones with no meat on them. He broke them and ate them like an animal. Would he, too, be bones tomorrow? Why not? This was life. Only life hurt. There was no hurt in death. To die was to sleep. Then why was he not y to die? He, as a man, no longer desired. Life in him, unwilling to die, drove him on. One morning he woke up beside a river. Slowly he followed it with his eyes and saw it emptying into a shining sea. When he saw a ship, he closed his eyes. He knew there could be no ship, no sea, here. An imagined picture, he thought. Hearing a noise, he turned around. A wolf（狼）, old and sick, was coming slowly toward him. This was real, he thought. He turned back; the sea and the ship were still there. He didn't understand. Had he been walking north, away from the camp, toward the sea? He started slowly toward the ship, knowing full well the sick wolf was following him. In the afternoon, he found the bones of a man. Beside the bones was a small bag of gold, like his own. Bill had carried his gold to the end; he would carry Bill's gold to the ship. Ha-ha! He would have the last laugh on Bill. His laughing sounded like the low cry of an animal. The wolf cried back. The man stopped suddenly and turned away. How could he laugh about Bill's bones and take his gold? . ______ 3. ______ He was very sick, now. He inched about on hands and knees, having lost everything— his blanket, his gun, and his gold. Only the wolf stayed with him hour after hour. At last he could go no further. He fell. The wolf came close to him, but the man was y. He got on top of the wolf and held its mouth closed and bit it with his last strength. The wolf's blood flowed into his mouth. He held the wolf with his teeth and killed it; then he fell on his back and slept. . ______ 5. ______ The men on the ship saw a strange object lying on the beach. It was moving toward them — perhaps twenty feet an hour. They went to look and could hardly believe it was a man. Three weeks later, when he felt better, he told them his story. But there was one strange thing he feared there wasn't enough food on the ship. They also noticed he was getting fat. They gave him less food, but still he grew fatter with each day. Then one day they saw him put some b under his shirt. They searched his bed and found food under his blanket. They understood. 19懂得下放何种权力与如何下放权力同等重要，因为你对某项工作不喜欢或不甚了解，便随手将其交给了助手，这是很不公平的玩游戏也是错误的，比如，让助手去做你明知她力所不能及的工作How to be a boss You've got your first promotion，and everything is going your way．Now you've got an assistant．But along with the excitement，you have got a load of new assignments and you don't see how you can work harder．Actually，you' re probably working hard enough，but you may not be working smart enough．Effective job permance and management require delegation1)．The more you move up，the more you'll have to develop this skill．Delegating means making the best possible use of that new assistant they've assigned you．She's enthusiastic，bright，even if a bit confused and naive) at times．Mainly，she's eager to learn and looks to you direction．Maybe you're wondering whether this inexperienced young person is up to the job．She's eager，all right，but can she really understand the work as well as you do？You may question her competence or sincerity3) at times．So you may end up perming tasks she could have hand led，leaving too little time work that demands your special skills and attention．Knowing what to delegate is as important as knowing how．It's unfair to pass along jobs just because you dislike them or don't understand them．Playing games is also wrong－－asking that assistant to do something you know beyond her， example．Giving the impression that you don't really trust your assistant's skills or won't be satisfied no matter what is a sure way to kill youthful enthusiasm．True，she's probably not as competent) as you are，but she may still be equal to the task．The point is to free your time and energy other work．When you assign a job，explain clearly what you want done．Be patient with questions，including the ones you can't believe she asked．Even if you're sure your way is best，leave room her to do it her way．Once she's begun，check progress occasionally，but don't hang over her．If you think things are going poorly，you may ask if she wants help or advice－－don't rush in and take over5)．Most important，recognize and reward achievement．The ability to train and develop an assistant is as important an exercise you as her，and will count toward your next promotion． 13有句古话说：“如果你没犯错误，就说明你没有尽力”所以，勇往直前，去犯错误吧然后学习、成长，最后成功Good MistakesIt's good to make mistake, and here is why.First of all, mistakes are a clear sign that you are trying new things. It's always good to try new things because when you are trying new things you are growing. If you never try anything new, how can you improve? How can you expand? How can you innovate? The simple answer is "You can't".Look around you.With very few exceptions, either everything you see in your physical world or every single detail of every single thing is the result of someone trying something new.Another good thing about mistakes is this when you are making mistakes, you are learning. Consider this Edison failed 000 times bee he perfected the light bulb. when asked how it felt to fail that many times, he remarked that he hadn't failed 000 times, but rather had learned 000 things that didn't work.Finally, when you make a mistake you are much closer to success. Why?Because when all is said and done, you will have tried some finite number of things bee you succeeded, Every time you made a mistake you eliminated one of those things and are one step closer.But this all doesn't mean that you should ge ahead with disregard the consequences of a mistake. Quite the contrary, when you try something new you have to be willing to set some reasonable limits so that in the event that it doesn't work out the way you want it to, you will be in a position to try again.We all have limited resources in the m of time and money so don't blow them all on one approach to a problem. Realize that it probably won't be perfect the first time and allocate these resources appropriately so you can learn,modify, and try it again. Only by embracing and using your mistakes in this way can you make significant advances in your business and your career.There is an old axiom that goes, "If you're not making mistakes,you're not trying hard enough."So go th and make mistakes. And learn. And grow. And prosper. 75
