以下是理查德.尼克松总统(Richard Nixon) 1972年访华时在欢迎宴会上所作的致辞。

Mr. Prime Minister, I wish to thank you for your very gracious and eloquent remarks. At this very moment through the wonder of telecommunications, more people are seeing and hearing what we say to them than on any other such occasion in the whole history of the world. Yet, what we say here will not be long remembered. What we do here can change the world.

As you said in your toast, the Chinese people are a great people, and the American people are a great people. If our two peoples are enemies, the future of this world we share together is dark indeed. But if we can find common ground to work together, the chance for world peace is immeasurably increased.

What legacy shall we leave our children? Are they destined to die for the hatreds which have plagued the old world, or are they destined to live because we had the vision to build a new world?

There is no reason for us to be enemies. Neither of us seeks the territory of the other, neither of us seeks domination over the other, and neither of us seeks to stretch out our hands and rule the world.

Chairman Mao has written, "So many deeds cry out to be done, and always urgently, the world rolls on, time presses. Ten thousand years are too long, seize the day,seize the hour!"

This is the hour. This is the day for our two peoples to rise to the heights of greatness which can build a new and a better world.

In that spirit, I ask all of you present to join me in raising your glasses to Chairman Mao, to Prime Minister Zhou, and to the friendship of the Chinese and American people that can lead to friendship and peace for all people in the world.

【口译培训】重点词汇积累:

1) toast:该词最基本的含义是“祝酒”和“吐司面包”,本文取其前面的意思,并引申为“祝酒辞”之意。表示向某人敬酒,可以表达为drink a toast to someone.此外,someone is the toast of a place表示的是“某人在某地很受欢迎,很吃得开”的意思。

2) be destined to:如果表示某事注定要发生,肯定要发生,我们就可以用something is destined to happen 来表达。此夕卜,someone is destined for a particular place表示的是“某人要到某地去”之意。

3) plague:“瘟疫、突发灾难”之意,文中做动词用,表示“使……陷入灾难之意。 someone is plagued by something表示“某事不断在给某人制造麻烦或者让某 人遭罪”之意。

【口译培训】参考译文:

总理先生,我要感谢您作的如此盛情和意味深长的讲话。此时此刻,通过电讯的奇迹,在观看、在聆听我们的讲话的人数是空前的。也许,我们在这里的讲演不会长留于人们的心中,但我们在这里所做的事却能改变世界。

正如您在祝酒辞中所讲的,中国人民是伟大的人民,美国人民是伟大的人民。 如果我们两国互相敌视,那么我们共同拥有的这个世界的前途就会暗淡无光。但是,如果我们能找到相互合作的共同立场,那么实现和平的机会就将无法估量地大 大增加。

我们将给我们的孩子留下什么遗产呢?他们注定是要因为那些曾祸患旧世界 的仇恨而死亡呢,还是因为我们缔造一个新世界的远见而活下去呢?

我们没有要成为敌人的理由。无论我们哪一方都不企图侵占对方的领土;无 论哪一方都不企图控制对方;无论我们哪一方都不企图伸手去主宰这个世界。

毛主席写过:“多少事,从来急;天地转,光阴迫。一万年太久,只争朝夕。” 现在正是只争朝夕的时候了,是我们两国人民去攀登伟大事业的髙峰,缔造一个新的、更美好的世界的时候了。

本着这种精神,我请求诸位同我一起举杯,为毛主席,为周总理,为能为全世界人民带来友谊与和平的中美两国人民之间的友谊,干杯!
