One day, a poor boy who was trying to pay his way through school by selling goods door to door found that he only had one dime left. He was hungry so he decided to beg for a meal at the next house.


  However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”


  “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught me never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said, “Then I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but it also increased his faith in God and the human race. He was about to give up and quit before this point.


  Years later the young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where specialists can be called in to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly, now famous was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately, he rose and went down through the hospital hall into her room.


  Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room and determined to do his best to save her life. From that day on, he gave special attention to her case.


  After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it and then wrote something on the side. The bill was sent to her room. She was afraid to open it because she was positive that it would take the rest of her life to pay it off. Finally she looked, and the note on the side of the bill caught her attention. She read these words...


  “Paid in full with a glass of milk.”


  (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly


  Tears of joy flooded her eyes as she prayed silently: “Thank You, God. Your love has spread through human hearts and hands.”

以下是引用sarah20050714在2006-1-14 20:29:00的发言:

Dear Sarah, 知道你对英语很有兴趣,也很勇于尝试,很想在这里鼓励你,要继续努力哦,不怕讲错,就怕不讲。在这里很愿意给你几个小小的建议,希望能够与你一起进步:)

上面那句话,如果写成“So good a story", 或者写成"Such a good story"就符合语法了,这句其实是"It is so good a story!" or "This is such a good story" 的省略句。

1。pay his way through school by selling goods ——

lost his nerve —— 失去勇气,
不知所措, 慌张

3。“How much do I owe you?” —— “我应该付多少钱?”

4。“Mother has taught me never to accept pay for a kindness.” ——

thank you from the bottom of my heart ——

The local doctors were baffled. ——

a strange light filled his eyes.—— 译文为:“一个奇怪的念头霎时间闪过他的脑际。”虽然对照原文能够想象得到医生当时的感受,但因为和原文还是有出入,我在想是不是有更好的译法:比如说“他的眼睛里忽然一亮”大家觉得呢?
