空战[367] Herodot. ix, 66.The essence of true politeness is consideration for others. The essential, enduring education is that which broadens the sympathies and encourages universal kindliness. That so-called culture which does not make a youth deferential toward his parents, appreciative of their excellences, forbearing toward their defects, and helpful to their necessities; which does not make him considerate and tender, generous and helpful toward the young, the old, and the unfortunate, and courteous toward all, is a failure.沃德一家,可不是那种会把钻戒丢在路上的人。沃德上校,说得好听点儿,他冷酷就跟耶和华一样。沃德夫人则认为,抚养男孩,就要让他们长成真正的男人。她的眼睛里总是闪烁着愉快的光芒,两个孩子都很喜欢这位奶奶。他们真正的成长乐园,是南尼•汤姆森开办的幼儿园,那里还有别的孩子。沃德夫妇有至少四个女儿,还有其他寄养的孩子,不久后,他们还把艾伦的表弟表妹,也就是柯万上校的三个孩子也一起接过来寄养。艾伦非常喜欢沃德夫妇的二女儿海兹尔,但是讨厌最小的琼,琼比艾伦大,但是比约翰小。What was the sound? Again a strange one for the place and time. An easy, scornful, merry laugh—the laugh of young Rupert Hentzau! I could scarcely believe that a sane man would laugh. Yet the laugh told me that my men had not come; for they must have shot Rupert ere now, if they had come. And the clock struck half-past two! My God! The door had not been opened! They had gone to the bank! They had not found me! They had gone by now back to Tarlenheim, with the news of the King’s death—and mine. Well, it would be true before they got there. Was not Rupert laughing in triumph?空战
