Background Information
背景资料
Rachel Carson decided to become a writer at a very early age.
蕾琪?卡森年纪很小的时候便决定成为一个作家。
By the time she was ten years old, several of her stories had already appeared in magazines.
到了她十岁的时候,她已经有好几篇小说出现在杂志上。
When she entered college, however, a course in biology changed her plans for the future, and she began a career
 as a marine biologist.
然而,她进大学以后,一门生物学的课程改变了她对未来的计划,因而开始海洋生物学家的生涯。
Her knowledge of nature and her clear, interesting style of writing were later combined in several popular books
 about the sea.
她的大自然的知识以及明晰有趣的写作风格融合到好几本有关海洋的畅销书籍当中。
Rachel Carson died in 1964.
蕾琪?卡森于一九六四年去世。
"A Statement of Belief" presents Carson's feelings about the value of our natural environment.
「信念的表白」陈述卡森对我们自然环境价值的感情。
In her presentation, Carson also attempts to persuade the reader to share her beliefs.
在她的陈述中,卡森也尝试说服读者分享她的信念。
Persuasive writing uses logical argument or emotional appeal (and often a combination of both) to convince the
 reader to change his or her opinion.
说服性的文章使用逻辑的论证或情感的诉求(时常是两者混合)来说服读者改变他或她的观点。
As you read the following selection, look for examples of persuasive writing.
当你阅读下面的选文时,找一找说服性文章的例子。
A large part of my life has been concerned with some of the beauties and mysteries of this earth about us, and
 with the even greater mysteries of the life that inhabits it.
我生命中的大部分时间一向关心我们周遭的地球之美和神秘,而且关心居住在上面的生物的大神秘。
No one can dwell long among such subjects without thinking rather deep thoughts, without asking himself searching
 and often unanswerable questions, and without achieving a certain philosophy.
没有一个人可以长久居住于这些主题当中而不深思,而不自问一些有探索性而往往无法解答的问题,而不建立某一种人生观。
There is one quality that characterizes all of us who deal with the sciences of the earth and its life -- we are
 never bored.
有一种特性是我们所有研究地球科学及生物的人所具有的特色 -- 我们从不厌倦。
We can't be.
我们绝不可能厌倦。
There is always something new to be investigated.
总有一些新的东西值得仔细研究。
Every mystery solved brings us to the threshold of a greater one.
每一个被解开的神秘都会带我们进入更大的神秘。
I like to remember the wonderful old Swedish oceanographer, Otto Petterson.
我喜欢怀念伟大的瑞典老海洋学家,奥图?贝得森。
He died a few years ago at the age of ninety-three, in full possession of his keen mental powers.
几年前他以九十三岁高龄去逝,还充分具有敏锐的心智力。
