【今日基础词】Conclude

【Transcript】

Smile is the unaffected, unplanned, natural connection between people. I tell this story in my work because I’d like people to consider that underneath all the layers we construct to protect ourselves, our dignity, our titles, our degrees, our status and our need to be seen in certain ways―underneath all that remains the authentic, essential self.

 I’m not afraid to call it the soul. I really believe that if that part of you and that part of me could recognize each other, we wouldn’t be enemies. We couldn’t have hate or envy or fear.

I sadly conclude that all those other layers, which we so carefully construct through our lives, distance and insulate us from truly contacting others.


【注】authentic a. 可信的;insulate v. 隔离

【Translation】


微笑是人与人之间最自然真挚的沟通方式。我在作品中讲这个故事,是希望人们能仔细想想以下的事情:人常常为自己建立层层的保护膜,为了维护尊严、头衔、身份、形象等,而必须有所隐藏。

我相信在这些掩饰下,每个人都有一个真实、不虚伪的灵魂。如果我们能用心灵去认识彼此,世间不会有结怨成仇的憾事;恨意、妒嫉、恐惧也会不复存在。

可惜的是,人们小心翼翼为自己所建造的保护膜,却阻隔了自己与他人真诚相对的机会。

【Conclude】

conclude  v. ①结束 ②作出决定

例:Once the price had been agreed, a deal was quickly concluded.
价格一经商定,交易很快就达成了。

From his appearance we may safely conclude that he is a chain smoker.
从他的外表看,我们可以有把握地断定他烟抽得很凶。

搭配:conclude with (使)结束,终止:

The performance concluded with Stravinsky’s ‘Rite of Spring’.
 演出以斯特拉文斯基的《春之祭》结束。

拓展:conclusion n. 结论,结束
