2018-12-05 来源:国外网站推荐 - 由[国外网站大全]整理 15
  A doctor once told me about one of his outpatients who suffered from the disease of eloquence:
    一位医生向我介绍,他们在门诊中接触了一位雄辩症病人。    "Please sit down," the doctor told him.    医生说:“请坐。”    "Why should I?" the patient asked. "Are you going to deprive me of my right not to sit down?"    病人说:“为什么要坐呢?难道你要剥夺我的不坐权吗?”英文美文:雄辩症 A Case of Eloquence    The doctor could say nothing but offered him a glass of water."Have some water then.”    医生无可奈何,倒了一杯水,说:“请喝水吧。”    The patient retorted, “This is lop-sided talk, so it is absurd. Not all water is drinkable. If you put some potassium cyanide in it, it will be undrinkable. "    病人说:“这样谈问题是片面的,因而是荒谬的,并不是所有的水都能喝。例如你如果在水里搀上氰化钾,就绝对不能喝。”    The doctor said, "I didn't put any poison in it. Please rest assured."    医生说:“我这里并没有放毒药嘛。你放心! ”    "Who said you put poison in it?    病人说:“谁说你放了毒药了呢?    Do you mean to say that I am lodging a false accusation against you?    难道我诬告你放了毒药?    Has it been written at the indictment of the procurator that you have put poison in the water?    难道检察院起诉书上说你放了毒药?    I didn't say you had put poison in it, but you claimed that I said you had put poison in it. So you have indeed put in more poisonous poison against me!"    我没说你放毒药,而你说我说你放了毒药,你这才是放了比毒药还毒的毒药!”    The doctor could not but heave a sigh and switched to another topic, “It's fine today.”    医生毫无办法,便叹了口气,换一个话题说:“今天天气不错。”    The patient replied, "Nonsense! The fact that it is fine here doesn't mean that it is fine everywhere else in the world. At the North Pole, for example, it must be freezing, with strong winds, long nights and icebergs colliding with one another. . . "    病人说:“纯粹胡说八道!你这里天气不错,并不等于全世界在今天都是好天气。例如北极,今天天气就很坏,刮着大风,漫漫长夜,冰山正在撞击……”    The doctor couldn't help but retorted, " Here is not the North Pole."    医生忍不住反驳说:“我们这里并不是北极嘛。”    The patient argued, “You can't deny the existence of the North Pole. If you do, you'll be distorting facts with ulterior motives."    病人说:“但你不应该否认北极的存在。你否认北极的存在,就是歪曲事实真相,就是别有用心。”    Finally the doctor begged him, "Just go away."    医生说:“你走吧。”    image.png    病人说:“你无权命令我走。你是医院.不是公安机关,你不可能逮捕我,你不可能枪毙我。”
