如果你不喜欢爬山,费力去登顶就毫无意义。
If you don’t enjoy the climb, giving what it takes to get to the top isn’t worth it.

登上顶峰之前,不要测量山峰的高度。登顶之后你自然就会知道山有多低的。

Lend a hand.

我们还记得加拿大短跑选手本·约翰逊以9秒79打破男子百米世界纪录的情景。约翰逊跑到一半时突然爆发出惊人的力量冲过终点线。谁知道那事后查出的兴奋剂起了多大作用?既然违禁药物能够明显提高成绩、强壮肌肉,那么兴奋剂的使用只会有增无减。
We watched Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson run his world record 100-meter dash. Midway, it seemed that he had turned on an afterburner to roar across the finish line way ahead. Who’s to know to what extent the later-detected steroids accounted for it? But since such illicit steroids unquestionably hype performance and are shortcuts to muscle bulging, their use is an ever increasing factor in sports and body-building.
——马尔康姆·福布斯(1988)

Don’t lie if you don’t have to.
――美国核物理学家里奥·西拉德

只有伪君子才是真正堕落的人。
Only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core.
――德裔美国政治理论家汉娜•阿伦特

如果我们一生都活在谎言之中,并且对这些谎言无动于衷,我们就很难看清世间的真面目。
If we live all our lives under lies it becomes difficult to see anything if it does not have anything to do with these lies.
――美国诗人阿米里·巴拉卡

人们需要好谎言,糟糕的谎言太多了。
People need good lies. There are too many bad ones.

人生的艺术在于真诚。有时你会因真诚失去一些,但会让你得到更有价值的东西。没有什么比伪装门面更麻烦的了。
The art of life is to show your hand. There is no diplomacy like candor. You may lose by it now and then, but it will be a loss well gained if you do. Nothing is so boring as having to keep up a deception.

我从来没有使用过兴奋剂和激素,将来也不会。
I did not use steroids or human growth hormone, and I’ve never done so.
――美国棒球投手罗格·克莱门斯
自由无束的艺术达到了一个新的高潮。就独创性来说,它赶得上弗朗茨·克莱因、海伦·弗兰肯塔尔和马克·罗斯科等画家了。它就是那些限制民主进程的聪明人的才艺,他们在每十年的人口新普查之后规划新的选举区。但是,他们改变选举区的操纵艺术,应当受到法庭的审判。
There’s a new pinnacle in formless, shapeless art. For ingenuity, it rivals the fascinating intertwined drips of Pollock, the extraordinary slashes of Franz Kline, the splashed stains of Helen Frankenthaler, the drifting masses of Mark Rothko. It’s the accomplishment of those brilliant circumscribers of the democratic process who design new congressional districts after every decade’s new census. Their gerrymandering art, though, should be judged by the courts.
——马尔康姆·福布斯 (1983)

一行诗或许会耗费我们数个小时;但是如果它没有反映我们某个瞬间的思想,我们对语言的反复推敲工作就是毫无意义的。

——爱尔兰诗人、剧作家
威廉·勃特勒·叶芝

——美国作家E·L·多克特罗

如果你绕街区踱上一圈仍找不到灵感,那就绕两个街区吧——但别绕第三个了。
If you can’t find your inspiration by walking around the block one time, go around two blocks–but never three.
——美国画家罗伯特·马瑟韦尔

一想到我能拿起画框,作出好画,让洛克菲勒那样的人用钞票来买它,我就感到非常愉快。
It gave me great pleasure to think that I could take wood, make it good, and make people like Rockefeller buy it with paper money.
——美国画家路易斯·内罗丽森

很少有人在35岁之后做出有创造性的事情,原因是很少有人在35岁之前做些有创造性的事。
Very few people do anything creative after the age of 35. The reason is that very few people do anything creative before the age of 35.
——化学家乔尔·希尔德布兰德

不能理解的东西,我无法创造。
What I cannot create I do not understand.

Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.

I see the mind of the 5-year-old as a volcano with two vents: destructiveness and creativeness.
——作家希尔维芽·阿什顿·华纳
