摘录一些其中的好句子与大家分享:

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.”

我不知道会发生什么事,但不管怎样,我要大笑面对一切。

“As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.”

至于我,我对遥远事物的渴望永远折磨着我。我喜欢航行在禁海,在野蛮的海岸登陆。

“I try all things, I achieve what I can.”

我尝试一切,尽我所能。

“Ignorance is the parent of fear.”

无知是恐惧的根源。

“Talk not to me of blasphemy, man; I'd strike the sun if it insulted me.”

别跟我说什么亵渎的话,伙计,如果太阳侮辱了我,我会打它的。

“There is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness. And there is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces. And even if he for ever flies within the gorge, that gorge is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar.”

智慧是悲哀的、灾祸是疯狂的。在一些灵魂中有一只卡茨基尔之鹰,它可以像潜水一样潜入最黑的峡谷,再次从峡谷中翱翔,在阳光明媚的地方变得看不见。即使他永远在峡谷里飞翔,那峡谷还是在山上;因此,即使在他最低的俯冲中,山鹰仍然比平原上的其他鸟高,即使它们在飞翔。
