Our mother nature is fair to every one,
no matter he's poor or rich.
That's why we have been always
reliant to her deeply.
it's more evident
in all countrysides, where the life
styles survives through thousands of years :
People grow crops and grapes ,vintage ,and drink
people keep cows for milk, remove grass for growing flowers .
people go to churches to pray.
On the festival town squares .
people gatherd to play
musical instruments while dancing,and singing;
the gardens and fields of the old days are still  
nice and cozy homes as they were before.
then ,every place boats
ofits own lengendaries.and every person is famililar with
the speed of wind of his town.

How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterward


ruotong 的翻譯態度值得學習.....未肯定的東西不會硬翻譯。
小弟也曾想過把rest 的含義視為"長休",後來終向一位西班牙的網友打聽,原來西班牙人把我們的"飽食終日,無所用心"視為最高享受,因此,  "How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterward." 整句話馬上變成沒有任何玄機。:)  因此,rutong 的第二句是正確的,謝謝。

(1) The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready he is to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause. A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people's business.

(2) We should have a great many fewer disputes in the world if words were taken for what they are, the signs of our ideas, and not for things themselves.

The bounty of Nature is equal to everyone, rich or poor, and therefore all men are strongly attached to her. This is particularly true in rural areas, where people have kept the same lifestyle for a millennium or so. They plant crops and grapevines, brew wine to drink, feed cows to milk, and weed the gardens to grow flowers. They go to church at weekends, and they meet in the square on holidays, playing violin, singing and dancing. The aged-old land remains the same as their family hearth. Each place boasts its folklore and thereby social customs go down.

You are welcome, Joejoe:). I am glad to be a little help for your question.
It is great to know the Spanish idea of pleasure which might be regarded as laziness in some Chinese context, hehe. Ideas do differ, what a beautiful world!

As to your versions posted above, i personally prefer the second rendition which is more faithful to the original english version. Both of you have a good command of Chinese , anyway.

What puzzles me most is why you two like writing traditional chinese characters, hehe. They appear so weird in my eyes:))
