【推荐】“天将降大任于斯人也”的英译,大家看看:)

“天将降大任于斯人也,必先苦其心志,劳其筋骨,饿其体肤,空乏其身,行拂乱其所为,所以动心忍性,增益其所不能。”

—— 孟子(《孟子·告子下》)

"Thus, when Heaven is about to confer a great office on any man, it first exercises his mind with suffering, and his sinews and bones with toil. It exposes his body to hunger, and subjects him to extreme poverty. It confounds his undertakings. By all these methods it stimulates his minds, hardens his nature, and supplies his incompentencies." (Translated by James Legge in The Works of Mencius)

"So it is that whenever Heaven invests a person with great responsibilities, it first tries his resolve, exhausts his muscles and bones, starves his body, leaves him destitute, and confounds his every endeavor. In this way his patience and endurance are developed, and his weakness are overcome." (Translated by David Hinton in Mencius)

-- Mencius (Mengzi. Gaozi. Part II)

"Thus, when Heaven is about to confer a great office on any man, it

first exercises his mind with suffering, and his sinews and bones with

toil
A. It exposes his body to hunger, and subjects him to extreme

poverty
B. It confounds his undertakings. By all these methods it

stimulates his minds, hardens his nature, and supplies his

incompentencies." (Translated by James Legge in The Works of Mencius)



"So it is that whenever Heaven invests a person with great

responsibilities, it first tries his resolve, exhausts his muscles and

bones, starves his body, leaves him destitute  C, and confounds his every

endeavor. In this way his patience and endurance are developed, and his

weakness are overcome." (Translated by David Hinton in Mencius)

做OG做出综合症了,欢迎大家来找碴  screen.width-500)this.style.width=screen.width-500;" align="middle" border="0">

A  if a comma is given, the following independent sentence should be a complete one,

B  also suffer from the same defect as did A .  so, the two commas should be ommited.

C  destroy the parallelism by using leaves him  destitute ,an indirect object structure.

Because the setence comprising C is an enumeration of the Heaven's

activities, so the rule mentioned above(both in A and B) is not applied

to this situation.
