我说过,当我没啥可写或者不想写的时候,要么总结饭否,要么贴英文,现在到了贴English的日子了,贴几段优美英文,与诸位分享。这种文章,英文读来优美无比,翻译了反而会失去味道。

We have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less common sense; more knowledge, but less judgement; more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.

We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get to angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too often, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too little and lie too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life; we’ve added years to life, not life to years.

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy it less.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space. We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice; we write more, but learn less; plan more, but accomplish less.

We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait; we have higher incomes, but lower morals. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies, but have less communication. We are long on quantity, but short on quality.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men and short character; steep profits and shallow relationships. More leisure and less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition; two incomes, but more divorce; fancier houses, but broken homes.

其实这段文字老早就读过,当时即感回味无穷,现在揣摩更是别有风味,对于这种文章,背过这些或许更好一些吧^^,只是我好久没有背东西了,汗颜啊……赶快结束糜烂的生活吧……

  2. 称之为华丽…

  3. 好文章,我读过好多遍了,还用它做了个水平不高的flash。其实这个翻译后也蛮好的。
    最近没见你,什么时候把片子剪出来?
