朱德顾不得拉过来的椅子，端端正正地站在这个比他年轻十岁的青年面前，用平稳的语调， 说明自己的身份和经历： 他怎样逃出云南， 怎样会见孙中山， 怎样在上海被陈独秀拒绝， 怎样为了寻求自己的新的生活方式和中国的新的革命道路而来到欧洲。

10. ‘ This is for you，’ Bill Morrow heard on many occasions he would never forget——such as when he was taken a boat down the Grand Canal and every boat that passed sounded its siren in salutation. Or when he shown over the great Nanjing bridge， built where the ferries used to carry trains across the Changjiang River. He was given a chair and asked to wait a little as darkness came on， then suddenly the whole bridge was outlined in lights.
“这是为你安排的。” 这句话比尔。莫诺听到过好几次， 每一次都令他难以忘怀。 有一次， 他沿大运河乘船顺水而下，途经的每艘船都鸣笛致敬。 还有一次， 他参观雄伟的南京长江大桥——以前没桥时， 要靠轮渡托载火车横渡长江。 夜幕渐渐降临了， 他被安排坐下，并被告知稍坐等候， 然后突然间， 整个桥身被灯光勾画出了一个清晰的轮廊。

13. Have you been at sea in a dense fog， when it seemed as if a tangible white darkness shut you in ，and the great ship， tense and anxious， groped her way toward the shore with plummet and sounding-line and you waited with beating heart for something to happen？ I was like that ship before my education began， only I was without compass or sounding-line， and had no way of knowing how near the harbour was. “ light！ Give me light！” was the wordless cry of my soul， and the light of love shone on me in that very hour.
不知你是否有过这样的经历——在海上航行遇上了大雾，周围一片白，好像着实把你关在一个黑暗的地方，大船上的人又紧张又着急， 一面用铅锤探测深浅，一面向岸边慢慢驶去， 你的心也怦怦直跳，生怕出事。 我在开始受教育之前， 就像这样一条船， 只是没有罗盘， 没有测探绳， 也无法知道离海港有多远。 “光明！给我光明！” 这就是发自我内心深处的无言的呼唤， 也就在这时候， 爱心的光芒照到了我的身上。

17. That was because I saw everything with the strange， new sight that had come to me. On entering the door I remembered the doll I had broken. I felt my way to hearth and picked up the pieces， I tried vainly to put them together.
那是因为我正用一种刚刚获得的全新而奇特的视角来看待一切事物。 进屋时，我想起了被我弄坏的那个娃娃。 我摸索着来到壁炉前， 拾起那些碎片， 试图将它们拼接在一起， 却没办到。
