  在英国每年圣诞都有一个必备节目,那就是英国女王的圣诞演讲,在2016年英国时间12月25日下午三点,女王大人开始了今年的圣诞演讲。

  小编很喜欢女王大人的演讲中的这么一句话:

  The message of Christmas reminds us that inspiration is a gift to be given as well as received, and that love begins small but always grows.
  今年的圣诞演讲提醒我们,“鼓舞”是一种礼物,可以给予他人也可以从他人处获取。。爱始于微时,却会燎原。


  女王每年圣诞节都要发表圣诞演讲,并且会通过广播或电视向52个英联邦国家传播。这个传统最早可以追溯到1932年,女王的祖父乔治五世。从1952年开始,这个演讲由伊丽莎白二世来发表。
  每年女王大人会利用这个机会来总结这一年的重大事件。圣诞演说由女王亲自执笔,是女王少数几次能够在没有政府提供意见的情况下,发表个人看法的机会。

  2016年女王圣诞致辞全文

  There was a time when British Olympic medal winners became household names because there were so few of them.
  英国奥运奖牌获得者的名字曾经家喻户晓,因为他们人数寥寥。

  But the 67 medals at this year's Games in Rio and 147 at the Paralympics meant that the GB medallists' reception at Buckingham Palace was a crowded and happy event.
  但今年里约奥运的67位奖牌获得者和147位残奥会奖牌获得者让白金汉宫的庆祝仪式变得拥挤而幸福。

  Throughout the Commonwealth there were equally joyful celebrations. Grenada, the Bahamas, Jamaica and New Zealand won more medals per head of population than any other countries.
  在英联邦国家中也有同样充满喜悦的庆典——格林纳达,巴哈马,牙买加和新西兰获得的奖牌人均世界最多。

  Many of this year's winners spoke of being inspired by athletes of previous generations.
  今年的获胜者们都提到,他们曾受到前辈运动员的启迪。

  Inspiration fed their aspiration; and having discovered abilities they scarcely knew they had, these athletes are now inspiring others.
  这种启迪让他们充满雄心壮志,也让他们发现了自己不曾知道的能力。现在,他们成为了其他运动员的启迪。

  A few months ago, I saw inspiration of a different kind when I opened the new Cambridge base of the East Anglian Air Ambulance, where Prince William works as a helicopter pilot.
  几个月前,我在为东英格兰空中救援剑桥基地成立剪彩时,发现了另一种启迪。这里也是威廉王子作为直升机飞行员工作的地方。

  It was not hard to be moved by the dedication of the highly skilled doctors, paramedics and crew, who are called out on average five times a day.
  被平均每天紧急出勤的医生、伞兵军医和空乘人员的奉献感动不是一件难事。

  But to be inspirational you don't have to save lives or win medals.
  但你不需要通过拯救生命或赢得奖牌而启发别人。

  I often draw strength from meeting ordinary people doing extraordinary things: volunteers, carers, community organisers and good neighbours; unsung heroes whose quiet dedication makes them special.
  我经常在面对从事普通岗位的普通人时获得力量:志愿者、护工、社区组织者和友好的邻里——不被歌颂的英雄因沉默奉献而与众不同。

  They are an inspiration to those who know them, and their lives frequently embody a truth expressed by Mother Teresa, from this year Saint Teresa of Calcutta.
  他们是周围人的榜样,而他们的人生也不断具象地表达着特蕾莎修女——从今年起她就是加尔各答的圣特蕾莎了——所体现的真理。

  She once said: 'Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love'.
  特蕾莎修女曾说:“不是每个人都能成大事。但我们可以做充满大爱的小事。”

  This has been the experience of two remarkable organisations, The Duke of Edinburgh's Award and The Prince's Trust, which are 60 and 40 years old this year. These started as small initiatives but have grown beyond any expectations, and continue to transform young people's lives.
  这也是两个伟大的慈善组织——成立60年的“爱丁堡公爵奖”和成立40年的“王子基金会”一直以来的经验。他们从自发的小型慈善开始,逐渐成长为出人意料、能够一直改善年轻人生活的慈善组织。

  To mark my 90th birthday, volunteers andsupporters of the six hundred charities of which I have been patron came to alunch in The Mall.
  为了庆祝我的90岁生日,来自由我赞助的600个慈善机构的志愿者和支持者们齐聚白金汉宫前林荫道,共进午餐。

  Many of these organisations are modest insize but inspire me with the work they do.
  很多这样的机构规模有限,但它们的工作依然令我备受启迪。

  From giving friendship and support to ourveterans, the elderly or the bereaved; to championing music and dance;providing animal welfare; or protecting our fields and forests, theirselfless devotion and generosity of spirit is an example to us all.
  从为我们的老兵提供陪伴与帮助,无论他们年岁已暮还是孑然一身,到在音乐舞蹈领域大放异彩;从为动物权益奔走奋斗,到保护我们的田野与森林,他们的无私投入和奉献精神是我们所有人共同的榜样。

  When people face a challenge they sometimestalk about taking a deep breath to find courage or strength. In fact, the word 'inspire' literally means 'to breathe in'.
  当人们面临挑战,有时他们会告诉自己深呼吸来寻求勇气和力量。其实,“鼓舞”这个词本身字面上就是“吸气”的意思。

  But even with the inspiration of others, it's understandable that we sometimes think the world's problems are so big that we can do little to help.
  但即使怀抱着他人带来的启迪,这个世界上存在的问题确实太大,我们很难从实质上改变它,这种想法是可以理解的。

  On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe outinjustice, but the cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of goodness canbe bigger than we imagine.
  作为个体,我们无法平息战乱或是消灭不公,但千千万万的小小善举汇聚到一起所带来的影响,远比我们想象中要大。

  At Christmas, our attention is drawn to thebirth of a baby some two thousand years ago. It was the humblest of beginnings, and his parents, Joseph and Mary, did not think they were important.
  在圣诞佳节之际,我们的注意力都集中到了一个大概2000年前出生的婴儿身上。那是人生多么平凡的一种开始,而他的父母约瑟和马利亚也不曾意识到自己有多么重要。

  Jesus Christ lived obscurely for most ofhis life, and never travelled far. He was maligned and rejected by many, thoughhe had done no wrong.
  耶稣基督人生的大部分时候都过得谦逊低调,甚至不曾远行。即便他未曾行差踏错,也被许多人毁谤厌弃。

  And yet, billions of people now follow histeaching and find in him the guiding light for their lives.
  即便如此,如今有数十亿记的人跟随他的教诲,把他视作人生的领航灯。

  I am one of them because Christ's examplehelps me see the value of doing small things with great love, whoever does themand whatever they themselves believe.
  我也是其中之一,因为基督的榜样,我看到了以大爱行小善的意义所在。无论行此善举的人究竟是谁,也无论他们究竟有何信仰。

  The message of Christmas reminds us thatinspiration is a gift to be given as well as received, and that love beginssmall but always grows.
  圣诞节的到来,提醒我们启迪与鼓舞是彼此能够传递的礼物,而爱即使生为星火,也可以长而燎原。

  I wish you all a very happy Christmas.
  祝愿各位圣诞快乐。
