英语咬文嚼字 The Crazy Logophile

今天CNBC新闻刊登了记者Kif Leswing写的一篇名为“Apple’s Tim Cook spent a lot of time charming the Trump administration, and it seems to be paying off”的分析文章。

文章分析了现任苹果首席执行官蒂姆·库克 ( Tim Cook )如何展开对特朗普的魅力攻势(charm offensive),说服美国政府对苹果核心产品不增加关税。

文章提到蒂姆·库克在写给员工的一封信阐中述了他当年为什么接近特朗普, 同时支持他的竞争对手(希拉里)。信中有两处语言亮点: on the sideline 和 in the arena.

on the sideline
If you are on the sidelines or do something from the sidelines, you are not actively involved in something (Cambridge).

这个习语的意思是“旁观,不参与”。这里的sidelines 原本是指球场的边线。替补球员只能在场边坐板凳, 不进场参与比赛,引申为“旁观,不参加”。


in the arena 荣誉属于真正在竞技场上拼搏的人
最早使用 in the arena 这个词语的是美国第二十六任总统西奥多·罗斯福 (Theodore Roosevelt 1858-1919)。 他在“一个共和国的公民”的演说中首次提到 in the arena ( 荣誉属于真正在竞技场上拼搏的人 )。

原文如下:
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

The speech was a wild success. According to Morris—who calls it “one of [Roosevelt’s] greatest rhetorical triumphs”

CNBC新闻记者Kif Leswing在今天的文章援引蒂姆·库克原话,其中使用了 on the sideline 和 in the arena.

原文如下:
In a message to Apple employees, Cook explained why he showed up to talk to Trump despite supporting his opponent. “Personally, I’ve never found being on the sideline a successful place to be,” Cook wrote in the post published by TechCrunch. “The way that you influence these issues is to be in the arena.”
