'No,don't do that.I can manage it,he said. I did not want to offend one of the leaders of our church,so I put the paddle down;but I felt I ought to have taken him farther along away from the irritation of the trees. 'Of course,'I said,'we could go under them.It might be nice.' 'I think,'said Mr Timberlake,'that would be a very good idea.' He lunged hard on the pole and took us towards the next archway of willow branches. 'Me may have to duck a bit,that's all,'I said. 'Oh,I can push the branches up,'said Mr Timberlake. 'It is better to duck,'I said.

 「いや、辞めておきなさい。私が何とか」と彼は言った。私は我々の教会の指導者の一人の気に障るようなことはしたくなかった、だから櫂をおろした。しかし木々が煩くないところへもっと遠くへ連れて行った方がいいと思った。  「無論、(木の)下を行くのもいいかもしれません」と私は言った。  「それはとてもいい考えだと思う」とティンバーレイクさんは言った。  彼は、棹を力一杯突いて、柳の枝の次のアーチの方へ我々を連れて行った。  「ちょっとかがまなくてはいけないだけ、でしょう」と私は言った。  「あ、私が枝を押し上げることもできる」とティンバーレイクさんが言った。  「クビを引っ込める方がいいですよ」と私は言った。 (これは船で柳の枝を避けながら進む情景でしょう)

    We were gliding now quickly towards the arbh;in fact,I was already under it. 'I think I should duck,'I said. 'Just bend down for this one.' 'What makes the trees lean over the water like this?'asked Mr Timberlake. 'Weeping willows──I'll give you a thought there. How Error likes to make us dwell on sorrow. Why not call them laughing willows?' discoursed Mr Timberlake as the branch passed over my head. 'Duck,'I said. 'Where?'I don't see them,'said Mr Timberlake,turning round. 'No,your head,'I said. 'The branch,'I called. 'Oh,the branch.This one?'said Mr Timberlake ,finding a branch just against his chest,and he put out a hand to lift it. It is not easy to lift a willow branch and Mr Timberlake was surprised.

    'How's that you guys?'said Mr Timberlake,looking round at our eddies and drawing in the pole.The delightful water sished down it. 'Fine,'I said. Deferentially I had caught the word.He went on his sleeve,perhaps,and uncertain in his steering,which I corrected,but he was doing well. 'It comes back to me,'hesaid.'How am I doing?' 'Just keep her out from the trees,'I said. 'The trees?'he said. 'The willows,'I said. 'I'll do it now,he said. 'How's that? Now quite enough? Well,how's this?' 'Another one,'I said. 'The current runs strong this side.' 'What? More trees?'he said. He was getting hot. 'We can shoot out past them,'I said. 'I'll ease us over with the paddle.' Mr Timberlake did not like this suggestion.

    For a full minute I did not believe what I saw; indeed,our religion taught us never to believe what we saw. Unbelieving,I could not move. I gaped. The impossible had happened. Only a miracle, I found myself saying,could save him. What was most striking was the silence of Mr Timberlake as he hung from the tree. I was lost between gazing at him and trying to get the punt out of the small branches of the tree.

    "I expect Mr Timberlake's tired after his address,"said my aunt. "Tired?"exclaimed my uncle,brilliant with indignation. "How can Mr Timberlake be tired? Don't let Error in!"

  • lest の訳し方

    'It is never safe to look into the future with eyes of fear.' Edward H.Harriman said that, and he was right. Nothing is fearful lest thinking make it so. I can honestly say that probably 95% of the things I was afraid of, it turned out I had no reason to be. この文章は「神との対話」の著者が、短い文章で、生き方の秘訣みたいなものを定期的にHPに載せている、その一つなのですが、 lest という言葉はこれまであまりなじみがなく、どう訳したらよいか分かりません。 よろしくお願いいたします。

    映画のとあるシーンです。 普通の人とは違う特殊なものが見える人が、オカルトショップを経営しています。 その店に、変わった男が訪ねてきました。 その時のことを、経営者が思い出しながら話している、という状況です。 He came to my shop. He said he sees it too. He said I can help him stop what's coming... ... that what I saw is salvation. A salvation that some people wants to stop. He said I can help him and I should see what he sees to understand. What I saw was those he killed a long time ago and those he will kill in the future. He just looked at me, sad, and said that he knows my decision before I even say it. He gave me this mashine. He said to use it if the vision changes back.

    "There is no good talking to him," said a Dragonfly, who was sitting on the top of a large brown bulrush ; "no good at all, for he has gone away." "Well, that is his loss, not mine," answered the Rocket. "I am not going to stop talking to him merely because he pays no attention . I like hearing myself talk. It is one of my greatest pleasures. I often have long conversations all by myself, and I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying." "Then you should certainly lecture on Philosophy," said the Dragon-fly ; and he spread a pair of lovely gauze wings and soared away into the sky. "How very silly of him not to stay here! " said the Rocket. "I am sure that he has not often got such a chance of improving his mind. However, I don't care a bit. Genius like mine is sure to be appreciated some day;" and he sank down a little deeper into the mud. After some time a large White Duck swam up to him. She had yellow legs, and webbedfeet, and was considered a great beauty on account of her waddle. " Quack, quack, quack," she said. " What a curious shape you are! May I ask were you born like that, or is it the result of an accident?" "It is quite evident that you have always lived in the country," answered the Rocket, "otherwise you would know who I am. However, I excuse your ignorance. It would be unfair to expect other people to be as remarkable as oneself. You will no doubt be surprised to hear that I can fly up into the sky, and come down in a shower of golden rain."
