经典英语短文:金色果实Of all fruit I like the orange best

In the first place, it’s perennial1 — if not in actual fact — at least in the greengrocer’s shop.
在一年四季的水果中,我首选柑橘。
Sour oranges come to the rescue when there is no other fresh fruit, and when cherries and strawberries are plenty, the orange, sweeter than ever, is still there holding its own. Oranges, just like bread and rice, beef and mutton, eggs and milk, are necessary to an ordered existence.
首先,柑橘四季皆有——如果此非事实的话,至少在水果店里应该如此。在水果淡季,无论柑橘有多么酸涩,它总能勇敢地前来救急;而到了水果旺季,大量的樱桃、草莓一起被摆上餐桌时,此时的柑橘比什么时候都甜,因此,仍然占据着一席之地。柑橘正如面包和米饭,牛羊肉,蛋类牛奶这些东西一样,都是必不可少的。
It is well that the commonest fruit be the best. Of the virtues of the orange duanwenw.com  I have not room fully to speak. It has health-giving properties, since it helps cure influenza2 and establish the complexion3. Its outer covering keeps it clean, and being round makes it an excellent substitute4 for a cricket ball. The pip5 can be used as a weapon, and just a small piece of peel can make someone slip and fall.
最普通的水果也就是最优良的,这话确有道理。柑橘的优点不胜枚举。柑橘具有保健功能,能防治流感,又能滋养容颜。它的外皮能保持它的洁净,圆圆的外型,使它成为板球的理想替代品。柑橘种子又可作为武器攻击你的敌人,而一小块橘皮就足以让人摔上一跤。
There is an appealing honesty to the orange as well. When it begins to go bad, it does so from the outside, not from the inside. How many pears present a blooming face to the world while being rotten at the core? How many innocent-looking apples are hiding a worm? However, the orange has no secret faults, and its outside is a mirror of its inside.
柑橘身上还有一种足以吸引我们所有人的诚实品质。如果它要变坏,它是从外而不是从内开始变坏。多少梨都是内核已经腐烂,而外表仍然向世人展示着灿烂的笑脸?多少苹果也是藏匿着蛀虫却依然看似纯洁无暇?但是,柑橘却没有隐藏的缺点,它表里如一,外表就是它内里的一面镜子。
