乐趣英语美文篇一

背诵英语美文8篇(带翻译)

第一篇 我们正在起跑点

We’re Just Beginning

Charles F Kettering

“We are reading the first verse of the first chapter of a book whose pages are infinite…”

I do not know who wrote these words, but I have always liked them as a reminder that the future can be anything we want to make it. We can take the out of it anything that we can imagine, just as a carves a from a shapeless stone.

We are all in the position of the farmer. If we plant a good seed, we reap a good harvest. If our seed is poor and full of weeds, we reap a useless crop. If we plant nothing at all, we harvest nothing at all.

I want the future to be better than the past. I don’t want itwhere we will spend the The past is gone and in our businesses, if we will only recognize them. We are just at the beginning of the progress in every field of human

“我们正在阅读一本页数无限的书的第一章的第一节„„。”

我不知道这段文字是谁写的,我一直很喜欢这段文字并用它们来提醒自己,那就是未来操之在我。我们可以掌握神秘而不可知的未来,从中创出我们所能想象的任何东西,一如雕刻家可以将未成型的石头刻出雕像一样。

我们每个人都是农夫。我们若种下好种子,就会有丰收。倘若种子长的不良且长满杂草,我们就会徒劳无获。如果我们什么也不种,就根本不会有什么收获。

我希望未来会比过去更好。我不希望未来会被那些充斥在历史中的错误所污染。我们应关心未来,因为往后的余生都要在未来中度过。

往昔已一去不复返而且是静止的。任凭我们怎么努力都不能改变过去。未来就在我们眼前而且是动态的。我们的所作所为都会影响未来。只要我们体会的出来,每天都可以发现新的知识领域伴随而生,可能是在家里,也可能是在我们的事业中。我们正处在人类所努力钻研的每个领域中进步的起点。

第二篇 快乐的钥匙

A Key to Happiness

To help others, you don’t have to be an expert in the art; the main thing is the You may be and , wasteful and , but if you help, produces nothing but good. The one you are trying to help knows your ed and encouraged by the magic of your sharing. In nearly every case, your simple to help, into action, produce the good But perhaps the greatest good is the good that you yourself get out of the attempt. Service to others delivers more joy to you than the joy you deliver to them. In doing good, you free yourself from the terrible burden of self; you escape from yourself into a clean world of joy and light. The good you simply try to do, regardless of the outcome, is always a success inside yourself.

Unselfish giving is your most efficient for happiness, for you have you began the project.

想去帮助旁人,你不必是这值种艺术的能干的专家,主要的是你有没有一颗助人的心。你也许是粗陋而笨拙的,徒劳又没有成就,但是如果你真诚地想帮助旁人,你的尝试必然产生善果。你所打算帮助的人晓得了你的意向,会因你公担困苦的魔力而坚强振作起来。差不多每一次,你的单纯的助人愿望,在化为行动之后,都会产生所寻的善果。但是最大的善果,也许还是你自己从这项尝试中所获得的益处。在帮助旁人的时候,你本身所获得的快乐要比你带给那些人的快乐为多。在行善之中,你便摆脱了以自我为本位的可怕重担,而进入一个快乐和光明的清新世界。只要你去试行为善,不论其结果如何,再你的心中都永远会是一项成功。

无私的给与是获得快乐的最有效率的方法。因为如果能够做到这一点,你所拥抱的已经不是自我,而是永恒;你已经感觉到生命的存在,而现在的妳的世界也比你开始行善之前还要开阔。

第三篇 劳动之乐

The Joy of Labor

Wise men of ancient times and successful men of today have told us that is sweet. Its reward is not material gain but what one becomes by it. Work does much more for us than just giving us a living; it gives us our life and the reason for living. The real joys of life come from doing something and doing it well.

All of us hope for success, but it is and hard to keep. It nearly always away from one like sand through the fingers, like water through a , unless it is held tight by hard work, day by day, night by night, year in year out. Everyone who fears failure should work harder and harder with a faithful heart as long as he lasts.

古时的贤达和今天的成功者都告诉我们劳动是甜美的。劳动的报酬不是物质的获得而是人们籍由劳动所达到的成就。工作所给与我们的岂止是混口饭吃;它赋予我们生命以及活下去的理由。人生真正的乐趣就是把所做的事做好。

我们都希望成功,但成功却是虚幻且难以维持的。除非你能日日夜夜、年复一年地努力紧守成功,否则它几乎总会从你身边溜走,就如沙粒从指尖滑落,或像水从漏桶流失一样。凡事害怕失败的人应该在有生之年,一心一意地更加努力奋发才是。

labor ['leibə] n. 劳动;工作 the Labour's Day/ Labor Day/ May Day 劳动节 illusive [i'lju:siv] adj. 错觉的;幻影的;迷惑人的

slip [slip] vi. 滑动;滑倒; 闪开

leaky ['li:ki] adj. 漏的;有漏洞的

pail [peil] n. 桶,水桶

第四篇:青春

Youth

of the emotions, it is the freshness of the deep spring of life.

Youth means the . This often exists in a man of sixty more than in a boy of twenty. Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by Years may the skin, but to give up wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and —these Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being’s heart the love of amazement of the stars and the star-like things, the challenge of events, the childlike for what-next and the joy of the game of living. as your fear, as young as your hope, as old as your .

青春不只是人生的一个阶段;它是是一种心境。它不是指红润的脸颊,红色的嘴唇和柔软弯曲的膝盖;而是指意志力、丰富的想象力、充沛的感情。它是生命深泉之清新。

青春意味着勇气胜过胆怯,冒险犯难胜过贪图安逸。60岁的人往往要比20岁的小伙子更持有这种精神。没有人只因活了若干年而变老。我们变老是因我们抛弃了自己的理想。

岁月可使皮肤产生皱纹,但是放弃了热诚则会消蚀灵魂。忧虑、怀疑、缺乏自信、恐惧和绝望-----这些都会让我们垂头丧气而且使成长的精神化为乌有。

每个人不管是60还是16,心中都有一股好奇心,对星星及星状的东西会产生一种惊喜之情,不畏惧任何挑战,对未知的事物有着孩子般用不冷却的热望,以及游戏人生的喜悦之情。

你有信心,自信和希望时,就是年轻;而你若怀疑、恐

rosy ['rəuzi] adj. 蔷薇色的,玫瑰红色的

desert ['dezət] vt. 遗弃;放弃/n. 沙漠

wrinkle ['riŋkl] n. 皱纹/ vi. 起皱

enthusiasm [in'θju:ziæzəm] n. 热心,热情

despair [di'spεə] n. 绝望;令人绝望的人或事

第五篇 为别人而活

For the sake of other men

Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that man is here for the sake of other men—above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the unknown by a built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how I must by thesense that I have borrowed too heavily from the work of other men.

To over the reason for one’s own general seems to me, from an and his judgment. Thegoal of comfort and happiness has never ed to me; a system of would beof cattle.

我们在这个世界上的处境是奇妙的。每个人都是来做一次短暂的访问,不知道是为了什么,不过有时似乎也会觉察到有某种目的。

但是从平日的生活来看,有一件事情我们是很清楚的:我们是为别人而活----尤其是为了那些我们的快乐与否取决于他们的微笑及幸福的人而活。同时,我们也为无数不知名的人而活,他们的命运借由同胞之情的维系与我们结合在一起。每天,很多次,我都会意识到我的肉体生活和精神生活很大程度上是建立在那些活着的和死去的人们的工作之上的,意识到我必须诚挚地、竭尽全力地努力去回报我所得到的东西。我经常心绪不宁,感觉自己从别人的工作里承袭了太多,这种感觉让我惴惴不安。

总体上在我看来,从客观的角度,没完没了地思考自己为什么会存在,或者是生命有什么意义,是非常愚蠢的行为。不过,每个人都有一些理想,来指引着自己的抱负和辨别是非。始终在我面前闪耀着光芒,并且让我充满生活乐趣的理想是善、美和真理。对我来说,以舒适和享乐为目标的生活从来没有吸引力。 以这些目标为基础建立起来的一套伦理观点只能满足一群牲畜的需要。

divine [di'vain] adj. 神圣的;非凡的

countless ['kauntlis] adj. 无数的;数不尽的

soul [səul] n. 灵魂;心灵 appeal [ə'pi:l] vi. 有吸引力,呼吁,上诉 bond [bɔnd] n. 债券;结合/ vi. 结合,团结 ethics ['eθiks] n. 伦理学;道德标准 sympathy ['simpəθi] n. 同情;慰问 sufficient [sə'fiʃənt] adj. 足够的;充分的 earnest ['ə:nist] adj. 认真的,热心的 herd [hə:d] n. 兽群,畜群

depressing [di'presiŋ] adj. 压抑的;使人沮丧的

ponder ['pɔndə] vt. 仔细考虑;衡量 ideal [ai'diəl] adj. 理想的;完美的/ n. 理想;典范 interminably [in'tə:minəbli] adv. 无限地;漫无止境地

Born to Win

Each human being is born as something new, something that never existed before. Each is born with the capacity to win at life. Each person has a unique way of seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and thinking. Each has his or her own unique potentials1)---capabilities and limitations. Each can be a significant, thinking, aware, and creative being---a productive person, a winner.

The words “winner” and “loser” have many meanings.When we refer to a person as a winner,we do not mean one who makes someone else lose.To us, a winner is one who responds authentically by being credible, trustworthy, responsive, and genuine, both as an individual and as a member of a society.

Winners do not dedicate their lives to a concept of what they imagine they should be; rather, they are themselves and as such do not use their energy putting on a performance, maintaining pretence and manipulating others. They are aware that there is a difference between being loving and acting loving, between being stupid and acting stupid, between being knowledgeable and acting knowledgeable. Winners do not need to hide behind a mask.

Winners are not afraid to do his own thinking and use his own knowledge. He can separate facts from opinion and doesn't pretend to have all the answers. He listens to others, evaluates what they say, but comes to his own conclusions. Although winners can admire and respect other people, there is not totally defined, demolished2), bound, or awed by them.

Winners do not play “helpless”, nor do they play the blaming game. Instead, they assume responsibility for their own lives. They don’t give others a false authority over them. Winners are their others a false authority over them. Winners are their own bosses and know it.

A winner’s timing is right. Winners respond appropriately to the situation. Their responses are related to the message sent and preserve the significance, worth, well-being, and dignity of the people involved. Winners know that for everything there is a season and for every activity a time. Although winners can freely enjoy themselves, they can also postpone enjoyment, can discipline himself in the present to enhance his enjoyment in the future. A winner is not afraid to go after what he wants but does so in appropriate ways. Winners are not afraid to go after what he wants, but they do so in proper ways. Winners do not get their security by controlling others. They do not set themselves up to lose.

A winner cares about the world and its people. A winner is not isolated from the general problems of society, but is concerned, compassionate3) and committed to improving the quality of life. Even in the face of national and international adversity, a winner’s self-image is not one of a powerless individual. A winner works to make the world a better place.

翻译:

生而为赢

人皆生而为新,为前所未有之存在,人皆生而为赢。人皆有其特立独行之方式去审视、聆听、触摸、品位及思考,因而都具备独特潜质——能力和局限。人皆能举足轻重,思虑明达,洞察秋毫,富有创意,成就功业。

“成者”与“败者”含义颇多。谈及成者我们并非指令他人失意之人。对我们而言,成者必为人守信,值得信赖,有求必应,态度诚恳,或为个人、或为社会一员皆能以真诚回应他人。

或者行事并不拘泥于某种信条,即便是他们认为应为之奉献一生的理念;而是本色行

事,所以并不把精力用来表演,保持伪装或操纵他人。他们明了爱与装爱、愚蠢与装傻、博学与卖弄之间迥然有别。成者无须藏于面具之后。

成者敢于利用所学,独立思考,区分事实与观点,且并不佯装通晓所有答案。他们倾听、权衡他人意见,但能得出自己的结论。尽管他们尊重、敬佩他人,但并不为他们所局限、所推翻、所束缚,也不对他人敬若神灵。

成者既不佯装“无助”,亦不抱怨他人。相反,他们对人生总是独担责任,也不以权威姿态凌驾他人之上。他们主宰自己,而且能意识到这点。

成者善于审时度势,随机应变。他们对所接受的信息做出回应,维护当事人的利益、康乐和尊严。成者深知成一事要看好时节,行一事要把握时机。

尽管成者可以自由享乐,但他更知如何推迟享乐,适时自律,以期将来乐趣更盛。成者并不忌惮追求所想,但取之有道,也并不靠控制他人而获取安然之感。他们总是使自己立于不败。

成者心忧天下,并不孤立于尘世弊病之外,而是置身事内,满腔热忱,致力于改善民生。即使面对民族、国家之危亡,成者亦非无力回天之个体。他总是努力令世界美好。

英语美文摘抄

1、Many people believe that they will be happy once they arrive at some specific goal they set for themselves. However, more often than not, once you arrive " there" you will still feel dissatisfied, and move your " there" vision to yet another point in the future. By always chasing after another "there," you are never really appreciating what you already have right "here." It is important for human beings to keep soberminded about the age-old drive to look beyond the place where you now stand. On one hand, your life is enhanced by your dreams and aspirations. On the other hand, these drives can pull you farther and farther from your enjoyment of your life right now. By learning the lessons of gratitude and abundance, you can bring yourself closer to fulfilling the challenge of living in the present.

许多人都相信,一旦他们达到了自己所设定的某个特定目标,他们就会开心、快乐。然而事实往往是,当你到达彼岸时,你还是不知足、不满意,而且又有了新的彼岸--新的幻想和憧憬。由于你总是疲于追逐一个又一个的彼岸,你从未真正欣赏、珍惜你已经拥有的一切。不安于现状的欲望人皆有之,由来已久,但重要的是要对它保持清醒的头脑。一方面,你的生活因为梦想和渴望而更加精彩。另一方面,这些欲望又使你越来越不懂得珍惜和享受现在拥有的生活。假如你能懂得感恩,学会知足,你就接近实现生活在现实中提出的要求。{乐趣英语美文}.

2、Alan and Linda always dreamed of living "the good life." Both from poor working-class families, they married young and set out to fulfill their mutual goal of

becoming wealthy. They both worked very hard for years, amassing a small fortune, so they could move from their two-bedroom home to a palatial seven-bedroom home in the most upscale neighborhood. They focused their energies on accumulating all the things they believed signified abundance: membership in the local exclusive country club, luxury cars, designer clothing, and high-class society friends. No matter how much they accumulated, however, it never seemed to be enough. They were unable to erase the deep fear of scarcity both had acquired in childhood. They needed to learn the lesson of abundance. Then the stock market crashed in 1987, and Alan and Linda lost a considerable amount of money. A bizarre but costly lawsuit depleted another huge portion of their savings. One thing led to another, and they found themselves in a financial disaster. Assets needed to be sold, and eventually they lost the country club membership, the cars, and the house. It took several years and much hard work for Alan and Linda to land on their feet, and though they now live a life far from extravagant, they have taken stock of their lives and feel quite blessed. Only now, as they assess what they have left -- a solid, loving marriage, their health, a dependable income, and good friends -- do they realize that true abundance comes not from amassing, but rather from appreciating.

艾伦和琳达都来自贫苦的工人家庭,都一直梦想着过上"好日子"。他们早早地成了家,然后就开始为他们共同的致富目标奋斗。他们拼命工作了好几年,终于积攒了一笔钱,从两居室搬到了一套坐落在最高档街区的富丽堂皇的七居室大房子。此后,他们费尽心思去积聚那些他们认为是代表富足的东西:当地惟一的一

家乡村俱乐部的会员资格、豪华汽车、名牌服装,以及上流社会的朋友。但是,不论他们积聚了多少,似乎永远难以满足。他们俩谁都无法消除小时侯对贫穷的刻骨铭心的恐惧。其实,他们就需要学会知足常乐这一课。1987年,股市遭受重创,艾伦和琳达损失惨重。祸不单行,一场莫名其妙的昂贵的官司又耗尽了他们的一大笔积蓄,这一切使他们陷入了经济困境。他们不得不变卖家产,最后他们丢掉了乡村俱乐部的会员资格,失去了汽车和房子。艾伦和琳达努力奋斗了好几年才从困境中走出来。现在他们的生活毫不奢华,但是他们是自己生活的主宰,幸福而又知足。只有在这时,他们才掂量着那些尚未失去的东西,如稳固相爱的婚姻、健康的身体、可靠的收入、真正的朋友等等,他们终于认识到,真正的富足不是来自财富的积聚,而是来自对所拥有的一切的珍视

3、Once learning stops, vegetation sets in. It is a common fallacy to regard school as the only workshop for the acquisition of knowledge. On the contrary, learning should be a never-ending process, from the cradle to the grave. With the world ever changing so fast, the cease from learning for just a few days will make a person lag behind. What's worse, the animalistic instinct dormant deep in our subconsciousness will come to life, weakening our will to pursue our noble ideal, sapping our determination to sweep away obstacles to our success and strangling our desire for the refinement of our character. Lack of learning will inevitably lead to the stagnation of the mind, or even worse, its fossilization, Therefore, to stay mentally young, we have to take learning as a lifelong career.

一旦学习停止,单调贫乏的生活就开始了。视学校为汲取知识的唯一场所是种常

见的谬误。相反地,学习应该是一种无终止的历程,从生到死。由于世界一直快速地在变动,只要学习停顿数日就将使人落后。更糟的是,蛰伏在我们潜意识深处的兽性本能就会复活,削弱我们追求高贵理想的意志,弱化我们扫除成功障碍的决心,而且扼杀我们净化我们人格的欲望。缺少学习将不可避免地导致心灵的停滞,甚至更糟地,使其僵化。因此,为了保持心理年轻,我们必须将学习当作一生的事业。

4、A MODEL STUDENT 模范学生

Do you mind being called a bad student? Of course not. So far as I know, everybody intends to be (become) a model student.

However, to be a model student is by no means an easy thing. First, he must do his best to obtain knowledge. A man without sufficient knowledge will not succeed. Secondly, he must remember to improve his health. Only a strong man can do great tasks. Thirdly, he should receive moral education. If his conduct is not good, no one will consider making friends with him.

你价意被称为坏学生吗?当然不。就我所知,每个人都打算做模范学生。 然而,做模范学生却不容易。第一,他必须尽力获得知识(求知)。一个没有足够知识的人是不会成功的。第二,他必须记住促进健康。只有强壮的人才能做大事。第三,他应该接受道德教育。如果他品行不好,没有人会考虑和他交朋友的

5、HOW TO GET HAPPINESS 如何获得快乐

There is no doubt that happiness is the most precious thing in the world. Without it, life will be empty and meaningless. If you wish to know how to get happiness, you must pay attention to the following two points.

First, health is the secret of happiness (the key to happiness). Only a strong man can enjoy the pleasure of life.

Secondly, happiness consists in contentment. A man who is dissatisfied with his present condition is always in distress.

无疑的快乐是世界上最宝贵的东西。没有它,人生将是空虚的而且毫无意义的。如果你希望知道如何获得快乐,你须注意下面两点。{乐趣英语美文}.

健康是快乐的要诀。唯有身体强壮的人才能享受人生的乐趣。

快乐在于知足。一个不满于现状的人终是处在痛苦之中

6、BOOKS 书籍

As is well known, books teach us to learn life, truth, science and many other useful things. They increase our knowledge, broaden our minds and strengthen our character. In other words, they are our good teachers and wise friends. This is the reason why our parents always encourage us to read more books.

Reading is a good thing, but we must pay great attention to the choice of books. It is true that we can derive benefits from good books. However, bad books will do us more harm than good.

如众所周知,书籍教我们学习人生,真理,科学以及其它许多有用的东西。它们增加我们的知识,扩大我们的心胸并加强我们的品格。换句话说,它们是我们的

人人有本难念的经

坚韧不拨的人成功的秘诀是什么?他们为什么能挺过艰难的时刻,而其他人却被困难所压倒?为什么成功的是他们,而失败的是其他人?为什么他们一飞冲天,而其他人都深陷泥沼?

答案很简单,全看他们是如何看待自己面临的难题。不错,人人有本难念的经。没有难题困扰的人生只能是一个幻想,是沙漠中的海市蜃楼。还是接受这个事实吧。每一座山都有巅峰,每一个峡谷都有深底。人生也有兴衰起伏,不会有人一生都时乖命蹇。难题总有了结的一天。随着时间的推移,一切难题都会迎刃而解。

你也许不能控制时势,可是你能够冷静应对。你既可以把痛苦转换为怨天尤人的诅咒,也可以赋予之以诗意,这全在于你自己的选择。时运不济的你或许无从选择,但是你可以选择应对的方略。譬如,遭遇一次严重的经济挫折,究竟怎么做才称得上积极应对呢?放弃而

后潜逃?借酒浇愁?吸毒麻醉?抑或自杀?这样的逃避是积极应对吗?当然不是!这样一些消极的反应似乎暂时解决了迫在眉睫的难题,但事实上只会招致更棘手的难题。积极的应对只能是鼓起勇气着手解决。对于人生中看似无法控制的难题,当你能够控制自己的应对,那么你就事实上控制了难题对你的影响。你对难题的应对是至关重要的、最根本的。难题能对你产生什么样的影响呢?它可以使你脆弱,也可以使你坚强;它可以使你升华,也可以使你痛苦。全在于你自己。

归根结底,坚韧的人之所以能挺过艰难的岁月,是因为他们选择积极地去应对困境。艰难的岁月不会没完没了,坚韧的人会始终不懈,坚持到底。历史告诉我们,每一个难题都有始有终,任何难题都不会永远存在。暴风雨过后一定是灿烂的阳光。严冬必然会化为春光。你的暴风雨也会过去,你的冬天也会回暖。你的难题终将解决。

成 功 者

每一个人生来就是一个先前从未存在过的崭新的个体。他在人生中成功立业的能力与生俱来。每一个人都可以以其独特的方式观察、倾听、触摸、体味和思索大千世界。每个人都有独一无二的潜质--才干和局限。每一个人都可以凭自己的努力成为一个有价值、有头脑、有感悟、有创造力、有成就的人,即成功者。

成功者的潜质各不相同。成就并不是最重要的,活得真实才是。一个真实的人通过了解自我、坚持自我,使自己成为值得信赖、乐于回应的人来体验真实的自我。他实现独特的永不重复的自我,同时也尊重他人的独特性。

成功者不惮于用自己的头脑去思考,用自己的感官去体会大千世界。他能够区分出哪些是事实、哪些是观点。同时并不宣称洞察一切。他倾听他人的意见,评估他们的话语,可是结论要由自己作出,他可以钦慕、敬重别人,可是他决不为他人所局限、所束缚,不会对他们敬若神灵。

{乐趣英语美文}.

成功者是自在的。他无须以既定的、僵硬的方式用出回应。一旦情况改变,他会相应地变更计划。成功者对人生充满了热忱。他享受工作、玩乐和美食、欣赏他人并钟爱大自然。他享受成功的乐趣而问心无愧;他分享他人的成就而心无芥蒂。

成功者可以自由自在地享受人生,他还可以延缓这种享受。为了未来的享受更加丰厚,他可以在时下约束自己,追求自己的目标,他无所畏惧,但总是行之有道,不逾规矩。他不会为了自己的安全感去控制他人。

成功者关注世界,关心他人。对于社会的普遍问题,他从不置身事外。他有一颗关注的心、同情的心,全身心致力于提高人生的质量。即便在本国或国际间发生困难之际,他也不会感到无能为力。他竭尽力之所能,使这个世界成为更加美好的地方。

“不快乐”的艺术

提起“艺术”两个字,你会想到什么?另类?忧郁?莫名其妙?抑或是,悲喜参半?无论你的答案是什么,有一点相信大多数人会同意——在如今这个快乐“泛滥”的年代,艺术,似乎与快乐无关。那么,“不快乐”的艺术,究竟缘起何处呢?

This wasn't always so. The ear-liest forms of art, like painting and music, are those best suited for expressing joy. But somewhere in the 19th century, more artists began seeing happiness as insipid, phony or, worst of all, boring — in Tolstoy's1) words, “All happy families are alike.?We went from Wordsworth's2) daffodils to Baudelaire's3) flowers of evil. In the 20th century, classical music became more atonal, visual art more unsettling. Artists who focused on making their audiences feel good, from Usher4) to Thomas Kinkade5), were labeled “Pop”

Sure, there have been exceptions (say, Matisse's6) The Dance), but it would not be a stretch to say that for the past century or so, serious art has been at war with happiness. If someone titles an art movie Happiness, it is a good bet that it will be about deeply unhappy people.{乐趣英语美文}.

You could argue that art became more skeptical7) of happiness because modern times have seen such misery. The reason, in fact, may be just the opposite: there is too much damn happiness in the world today.

After all, what is the one modern form of expression almost completely dedicated to depicting happiness? Advertising. The rise of anti-happy art almost exactly tracks the emergence of mass media, and with it, a commercial culture in which happiness is not just an ideal but an ideology8).

People in earlier eras were surrounded by reminders of misery. They worked gruelingly9), lived with few protections and died young. In the West, before mass communication and literacy, the most powerful mass medium was the church, which reminded worshippers that their souls were in peril and that they would someday be meat for worms. On top of all this, they did not exactly need their art to be a bummer10) too.

Today the messages your average Westerner is bombarded with are not religious but commercial, and relentlessly11) happy.Fast-food eaters, news anchors12), text messengers, all smiling, smiling, smiling. Our magazines feature beaming celebrities and happy families in perfect homes. (Tolstoy clearly never edited a shelter mag.) And since these messages have an agenda — to pry13) our wallets from our pockets — they make the very idea of happiness seem bogus14). elebrate!?commanded the ads for the arthritis drug Celebrex, before we found out it could increase the risk of heart attacks.

It gets exhausting, this constant goad15) to joy. If you're not smiling, what's wrong with you? Not to smile is un-American. You can pick out the Americans in a crowd of tourists by their reflexive grins. The U.S. enshrined16) in its founding document the right to the pursuit of happiness. So we pursued it and — at least as commerce defines it — we caught it.
