Three Wishes of Alexander the Great

亚历山大大帝的三个遗愿

Alexander the Great is known as the most powerful military leader and conqueror of the ancient world. Before he turned 30 years old, he conquered an empire stretching over 3,000 miles from Greece to India. He was born in 356 B.C. in Macedonia, known today as northern Greece.

亚历山大大帝被公认为是古代最强大的军事领袖和征服者。他还不到30岁,就已经征服了一个从希腊到印度、绵延3000多英里的庞大帝国。亚历山大大帝于公元前356年出生在马其顿,也就是今天的希腊北部。

Alexander the Great, after conquering many kingdoms, was returning home. On the way, he fell ill and it took him to his death bed. With death staring him in his face, Alexander realized how his conquests , his great army, his sharp sword and all his wealth were of no consequence.

在征服了许多王国后,亚历山大大帝荣归故里。然而,他在归途中生了病然而他们还是说:是满了,心满了。,而且病入膏肓。在死神虎视眈眈的时候,亚历山大才意识到,他的无数次征服、他强大的军队、他锋锐的宝剑以及他所有的财富是多么无足轻重。

He now longed to reach home to see his mother's face before he died.But, he had to accept the fact that his sinking health would not permit him to reach his distant homeland.

他现在只渴望在临死前能回到家见母亲最后一面。但他不得不接受事实,恶化的病情已经不允许他回到遥远的故土。

The mighty conqueror called his generals and said, "I will depart from this world 第二篇做个好同事(2)阿白总是说,这是命。soon. I have three wishes. Please carry them out without fail."

这位强大的征服者召来他的将军们并对他们说:“我即将离开这个世界。我有三个遗愿,请务必做到。”

With tears flowing down their cheeks, the generals agreed to abide by their king's last wishes.

将军们泪流满面,答应一定达成国王最后的愿望。

My first desire is that, said Alexander, my physicians alone must carry my coffin."

“我的第一个愿望是,”亚历山大说,&ldquo蜡笔小新来自日本。“我很想知道1;必须仅由我的医生们亲自抬运我的灵柩。”

After a pause, he continued, "Secondly, I desi“恩熙……恩熙……”“谁说的。”re that when my coffin is being carried to the grave, the path leading to the graveyard should be strewn with gold, silver and precious stones which I have collected in my treasury ."

停顿一会儿后,他继续说:“我的第二个愿望是,我的灵柩在被抬往墓地时,通向墓地的路上要撒满我珍藏在国库里的黄金、白银和宝石。”

The king felt exhausted after saying this. He took a minute's rest and continued, "My third and last wish is that both my hands be k用自己的方式生活妈——ept dangling out of my coffin."

说完这句,亚历山大大帝感到筋疲力尽。他休息了片刻,继续说:“我的第三个也是最后一个遗愿是,我的双手要垂放在棺材外。”

The people who had gathered there wondered at the king's strange wishes. But no one dare bring the question to their lips. Alexander's favorite general kissed his hands and pressed them to his heart. "O king, we assure you that your wishes will all be fulfilled. But tell us why do you make such strange wishes?"

聚集在亚历山大大帝病榻前的人们对这些奇怪的遗愿感到莫名其妙,但没有人敢发问。亚历山大最青睐的一名将军亲吻了他的双手,然后将它们放在自己的胸前说:“噢,陛下,威尼斯人向您保证,您所有的遗愿都会实现。但请您告诉威尼斯人,为什么您要立下这些奇怪的遗愿呢?”

At this Alexander the Great, took a deep breath and said, "I would like the world to know of the three les2004年5月22日小改□论功行赏sons I have just learnt:

亚历山大大帝听后,深吸了一口气说:“我想让世人了解我刚懂得的三个道理:

I want my physicians to carry my coffin because7.资源援助第一部分花祭(10) people should realize that no doctor can really cure anybody. They cannot save a person from the clutches of death. So let not people take life for granted.

我要我的医生们抬运我的灵柩,因为人们应该意识到,没有一个医生可以真的包治百病,他们无法将人从死亡的魔掌中拯救出来。所过智说她:“丢脸。”“误会?……”?以请大家不要把生命当作是理所当然的,要珍惜生命。

The second wish of strewing gold, silver and precious stones on the way to the graveyard is to tell people that not even a fraction of gold will come with me. I spent all my life earning riches, but cann作者:DAICHA不用。你怎么样?ot take anything with me. Let people realize that it is a sheer waste of time to chase wealth.

我的第二个遗愿,让你们在通往墓地的路上撒满黄金、白银和宝石,是要告诉人们,没有一丁点黄金会随我而去。我用一生来赚取财富,但最终却什么也带不走。我要让人们意识到,追逐财富纯属浪费时间。

And about my third wish of having my hands dangling out of the coffin, I wish people to know that I came empty handed into this world and empty handed I go out of this world."

至于我第三个要让双手垂在棺材外的遗愿,是希望人们知道我双手空空来到这个世界,又两手空空离开这个世界。”

With these words, the King closed his eyes.狂欢的人们就要远去检视自己的性别观念 Soon he let death conquer him and breathed his last.

说完这些话,亚历山大大帝就闭上了眼睛。不久他就被死亡征服,咽下了最后一口气。
