Henry asked in 藝術與人文歷史 · 1 decade ago



Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    但,於更大意義之上,吾等無法致力、無法奉上、無法成就此土之聖。這群勇者,無論生死,曾於斯奮戰到底,早已使其神聖,而遠超過吾人卑微之力所能增 減。這世間不曾絲毫留意,也不長久記得吾等於斯所言,但永不忘懷彼人於此所為。吾等生者,理應當然,獻身於此輩鞠躬盡瘁之未完大業。吾等在此責無旁貸獻身 於眼前之偉大使命:自光榮的亡者之處吾人肩起其終極之奉獻—吾等在此答應亡者之死當非徒然—此國度,於神佑之下,當享有自由之新生—民有、民治、民享之政 府當免於凋零。
