詩の和訳をお願いします。

少々長いのですが、以下の和訳をお願いします。 翻訳サイトも試みましたが、いまいちピンと来なかったので…。 "It Couldn't Be Done" Somebody said that it couldn't be done, but he with a chuckle replied, that "maybe it couldn't"but he would be one who wouldn't say so till he tried. so he buckled right in with the trace of a grin on his face. If he worried he hid in,he started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn't be done and he did it. Somebody scoffed:"Oh,you'll never do that;at least no one has ever done it" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat. And the first thing we know he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin without any doubting or stopping he started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn't be done and he did it. There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure; There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it. Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That"cannot be done"and you'll do it. 以上よろしくお願いいたします。

翻訳サイトがピンと来なかった人なんですよね(笑)。 「できっこない」 誰かが、そんなことはできっこないと言った。 でも彼は含み笑いで答えたよ。 「たしかにできっこないかもしれないね」でも彼は、自分でやってみるまでは、そうは言わない奴だろう。 それで彼は、かすかに笑みのしわをうかべて立ち向かったよ。 自信がなければ、隠れたはずなのに、彼は歌いはじめた。できっこないことにぶつかっていくために。そして彼はやったんだ。 誰かが嘲って言った。 「おう、あんた、やらないんだろ? 少なくとも今まで誰もやったことはないからね」 でも彼はコートを脱いだ。帽子も脱いだ。 そして私たちが知るかぎり最初になった。彼は始めたんだ。 あごを上げ、わずかに笑い、疑いも諦めもなく、彼は歌い始めた。 できっこないことにぶつかっていき、やりとげたんだ。 君にできっこないと言う奴が何千もいる。 失敗を予言する奴が何千もいる。 一つ一つ君のアラを指摘する奴が何千もいる。 危険が君に襲いかかろうと待ちかまえてる。 でもかすかにほほ笑みながらとりかかるんだ。 いまコートを脱ぎすてて始めるんだ。 いま歌い始めるんだ。「できっこない」それでも君がやりとげることに立ち向かうために。 拙い訳ですみませんが。

sesameさんの訳でほぼいいんですがところどころ思い違いがありますので、僭越ながら訂正をいれます。なお、grinは「にやっとして」という感じです。 「たしかにできっこないかもしれないね」 → 「ひょっとするとだめかもね」 自信がなければ、隠れたはずなのに、彼は歌いはじめた。できっこないことにぶつかっていくために。→ 不安だったとしてもそれを隠して、できるはずのないことことに取組みながら唄い出した。 「おう、あんた、やらないんだろ? 少なくとも今まで誰もやったことはないからね」 → 「できやしないよ。いままで誰もやりとげたやつなんかいないんだ」 そして私たちが知るかぎり最初になった。彼は始めたんだ。 → すぐに分かる、彼がもうやりはじめているってことが。 彼は歌い始めた。 できっこないことにぶつかっていき → できるはずのないことことに取組みながら唄い出した。 一つ一つ君のアラを指摘する奴が何千もいる。 危険が君に襲いかかろうと待ちかまえてる。 → 君に襲い掛かろうと待ち構えている危険をひとつひとつ指摘する奴が何千もいる。 かすかにほほ笑みながら → 不適な笑いを浮かべて

I think that he’s an incredible dreamer, incredibly naïve, he’s incredibly smart in what he wants to be smart at he’s one of those guys that knows ten thousand little things but doesn’t know much about one big thing and it was really fun, it was really fun to read and... Again there was something inspiring about it, there was something child like about it. There was something oddly brave about it and the thing that was very cool about the part to me was that he’s a simple guy and in his simplicity he doesn’t over think the world. And so he just lets the world happen to him and I think that that’s a blessing a lot of the time. ある俳優のインタビューです。 自分の役柄について聞かれ答えているのですが、どうしても意味が理解できないんです。。。 長文ですが宜しくお願いしますm(_ _)m

    Q. Opposite of hoarding?: You field a lot of questions about hoarding behavior. Is there such a thing as the opposite of a hoarder? I’ve been dating a guy for a few weeks, he has seemed great and without obvious quirks ... outside of his house. He lives alone in a big house that is very empty. There are several totally empty closets and bare shelves. There is not a photo or picture to be seen. He takes mail from his mailbox directly to the trash bins outside and sorts it there.

He will make an impact on the depth of your being that barely registers, except that in the time that follows you will not be able to think of any man but him.. He will seem striking, alluring in some way that you cannot fathom, and which has nothing to do with his looks, as though a chord is struck in your deeper soul, or the innermost chambers of your being. You will recognize him, not only from the description, which is in a sense quite bland, but something inside of you will be mesmerized. All day and days afterwards he will have stamped his indelible impression on your mind and you’ll keep thinking back to him, to the meeting, to the man, to the warm kindling feeling inside of you. Like a curtain of a dream it will drop across you life. It will be that mystical, that beautiful, yet real and solid too.

    Hamlet was naturally very upset by what he had done to Ponius. After all,the young prince was at heart a kind and gentle person. But he had more important things on his mind. He dropped his bloody sword and began admonishing his mother once again.He held up two drawings in front of her. One was of the late king,his father.The other was of Claudius.“Mother,"placeed Hamlet,“can't you see the difference? You must be able to see what a good man my father was,and what a villain your new husband is!" But at that moment,the old ghost reappeared out of nowhere.“Hamlet,"it said in the same eerie voice,“have you forgotten that you gave me your word? Why are you causing your mother so much agony? And why are you still hesitating? Get on with it!" Hamlet started to explain himself,but the ghost vanished as quickly as it had appeared.

     I paid for my purchases and was rearranging things in my purse when the little boy came up to the cashier. The cashier rang up his purchases and then said, "Congratulations, you are my hundredth customer today, and you win a prize!"With that, she handed the little boy the Pokemon game, and he could only stare in disbelief. It was, he said, exactly what he had wanted!  The little girl and her father had been standing at the doorway during all of this, and I saw the biggest, prettiest, toothless grin on that little girl that I have ever seen in my life.    As I walked back to my car in amazement over what I had just witnessed, I heard the father ask his daughter why she had done that."Daddy, didn't Grandma and Grandpa want me to buy something that would make me happy?"He said, "Of course they did, honey."the little girl replied, "Well, I just did!"
