列夫·托尔斯泰《安娜·卡列尼娜》

幸福的家庭总是相似的,而不幸的家庭则各有各的不幸。

All happy families are happy alike, all unhappy families are unhappy in their own way.

查尔斯·狄更斯《双城记》

这是最美好的时代,这是最糟糕的时代;这是智慧的年头,这是愚昧的年头;这是信仰的时期,这是怀疑的时期;这是光明的季节,这是黑暗的季节;这是希望之春,这是失望之冬。我们的前途拥有一切,我们的前途一无所有;我们正走向天堂,我们也正直下地狱。

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. It was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity. It was the season of light, it was the season of darkness. It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair. We had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way.

简•奥斯汀《傲慢与偏见》

Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-Lee-Ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate of tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.

弗•司各特•菲茨杰拉德《了不起的盖茨比》

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”

J•D•赛林格《麦田守望者》

你要是真想听我讲,你想要知道的第一件事可能是我在什么地方出生,我倒霉的童年是怎样度过的,我父母在生我之前干些什么,以及诸如此类的大卫•科波菲尔式废话,可我老实告诉你,我无意告诉你这一切。

If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.

马克•吐温《哈克贝里•费恩历险记》

You don’t know about me without you have read a book by the name of “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”, but that ain’t no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly.

L•P•哈特利《一段情》

往事犹若异乡:他们在那里做的事情都不一样。

他们在外头,穿白色制服的黑男孩们起得比我早,他们公然在大厅里暧昧,然后在我能抓到他们前把大厅都清理干净了。

They’re out there. Black boys in white suits up before me to commit sex acts in the hall and get it manned up before I can catch them.

克里斯多福•伊薛伍德《再见,柏林》

我是一台被动的相机,开着快门只记录不思考。

I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking.

那天,出去散步是不可能了。

There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.

辛克莱•刘易斯《埃尔墨•甘特利》
