Napoleon Bonaparte
拿破侖·波拿馬
About a hundred years ago there lived a great general whose name was Napoleon Bonaparte. He was the leader of the French army; and France was at war with nearly all the countries around. He wanted very much to take his soldiers into Italy; but between France and Italy there are high mountains called the Alps, the tops of which are covered
with snow.
大约在一百年前,有一个伟大的将军,名叫拿破侖·波拿馬。他是法国军队的统帅。当时法国几乎对所有的邻国作战。他非常迫切地想把军队开进意大利。但是在法国和意大利之间,有一座高山,叫阿尔卑斯山,山顶上覆盖着积雪。
"Is it possible to cross the Alps?" asked Napoleon.
“能越過阿爾卑斯山嗎?“拿破侖問。
The men who had been sent to look at the passes over the mountains shook their heads. Then one of them said, "It may be possible, but—“
被派去查看山道的人都搖頭。其中一個說:“也許可能,但是—“
"Let me hear no more,“said Napoleon. "Forward to Italy!"
“別讓我再聽到這些,“拿破侖說。“向意大利前進!“
People laughed at the thought of an army of sixty thousand men crossing the Alps where there was no road But Napoleon waited to see that everything was in good order, and then he gave the order to march.
人們覺得一支六萬人的軍隊想翻越沒有道路的阿爾卑斯山的想法非常可笑,但是拿破侖只等看到一切都准備就緒,就下令出發。
The long line of soldiers and horses and cannons stretched for twenty miles. When they came to a steep place where there seemed to be no way to go farther the trumpets sounded "Charge!" Then every man did his best, and the whole army moved right onward.
大隊人馬和大炮綿延20英裏。當他們來到一處看起來無路可走的陡峭的山地時,吹起了沖鋒號。“沖啊!“這時每個人都盡了最大的努力,整個軍隊繼續順利前進。
Soon they were safe over the Alps. In four days they were marching on the plains of Italy.
不久他們就平安地翻過了阿爾卑斯山。四天後,他們就在意大利的平原上行軍了。
"The man who has made up his mind to win,“said Napoleon, "will never say Impossible'."
“下定決心要取得勝利的人,“拿破侖說,“永遠不會說‘不可能’。“
