芭芭拉·金索尔(Barbara Kingsolver)名言

Southern Appalachians have been ridiculed since the country began. In fiction, they're usually depicted in a cartoonish manner. The region is poor, and very suspicious of outsiders, so there's a sort of 'us versus them' situation. They're easy to poke fun at.

自从这个国家建立以来,南部的阿巴拉契亚山脉一直受到嘲笑。在小说中,他们通常以卡通的方式来描绘。这个地区很穷,而且对外来者非常怀疑,所以出现了一种“我们对他们”的局面。他们很容易被取笑。

The first sentence of a book is a promise.

芭芭拉·金索尔

Terms like that, 'Humane Society,' are devised with people like me in mind, who don't care to dwell on what happens to the innocent.

像“人道社会”这样的术语是为像我这样的人设计的,他们不关心无辜者的遭遇。

芭芭拉·金索尔

The important thing isn't the house. It's the ability to make it. You carry that in your brains and in your hands, wherever you go... It's one thing to carry your life wherever you go. Another thing to always go looking for it somewhere else.

重要的不是房子。这是成功的能力。无论你走到哪里,你的大脑和双手都会带着它。。。不管你走到哪里都要带着你的生命。另一件事就是总是去别的地方找。

芭芭拉·金索尔

I live in southern Appalachia, so I'm surrounded by people who work very hard for barely a living wage. It's particularly painful that people are working the farms their parents and grandparents worked but aren't living nearly as well.

我住在阿巴拉契亚的南部,所以我周围的人都很努力地工作,勉强维持生计。尤其令人痛苦的是,人们在他们的父母和祖父母工作过的农场工作,却生活得不太好。

芭芭拉·金索尔

Nonfiction requires enormous discipline. You construct the terms of your story, and then you stick to them.

非小说需要大量的训练。你构建了你的故事,然后你坚持下去。

芭芭拉·金索尔

As a biologist, I can't think of myself as anything but an animal among animals and plant.

作为一个生物学家,我认为自己只不过是动植物中的动物。
