生活中难免会遇到灾难,有时候灾难甚至是毁灭性的。灾难是否会摧折一个人的意志呢?灾难是否能阻止一颗强大的心灵飞翔呢?
He lost his arms in an accident that claimed his father's life—who was the main source of support for the family. Since then, he has had to depend on the arms of his younger brother. For the sake of taking care of him, his younger brother became his shadow, never leaving him alone for years. Except for writing with his toes, he was completely unable to do anything in his life.
claim
claim,是“宣称、断言”之意。在这篇文章中,就是“宣告”。
例句:
They claim they are receiving more public support.
她们断言她们有用更大的群众支持。
在一次事故中,作为家中顶梁柱的父亲永远地离去了,他也因此失去了双手。从此弟弟的手便成了他的手。为了照顾他,弟弟从小到大总是形影不离地跟在他的身边,他除了学会了用脚趾头写字做作业外,生活上完全不能自理。
One late night, he suffered from diarrhea and had to wake up his younger brother. His younger brother accompanied him into the toilet and then went back the dorm to wait. But being so tired, his younger brother fell asleep, leaving him on the toilet for two hours till the teacher on duty discovered him. As the two brothers grew up together, they had their share of problems and they would often quarrel. Then one day, his younger brother wanted to live separate from him, living his own life, as many normal people do. So he was heart-broken and didn't know what to do.
separate
separate,就是“分开,单独”之意。live separate,即是“分居”。
例句:
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are three separate meals.
早餐,午餐和晚餐是三种分开进食的餐。
有一次,他因肠胃不好,半夜起来要上厕所,于是他叫醒了弟弟。弟弟帮着他进了厕所后,就回宿舍躺下了。由于太劳累,弟弟闭上眼就睡着了。结果他在厕所里等了整整两个小时,才被查夜的老师发现。慢慢长大了的两兄弟也有了烦恼和争执,有一天弟弟终于提出要离开他,因为弟弟要和很多正常人一样需要过自己的生活。为此,他很伤心,不知如何是好。
