巴里·汉纳(Barry Hannah)名言

Voice comes to you through a spell, a trance. The best voices are not you... they're a little away from you.

声音通过咒语,恍惚传来。最好的声音不是你。。。他们离你有点远。

I was always kind of florid. And full of rhetoric. That was my flaw. My whole time writing, I've had to work against that because it can be a wrecking posture.

我总是有点花枝招展。充满了华丽的辞藻。那是我的缺点。在我写作的整个过程中,我不得不反对这种做法,因为这可能是一种破坏性的姿态。

Honestly, I envy painters, who can have a masterpiece in one morning. Or musicians, who can write something in 30 minutes and arrange it in an hour, sometimes. 'Cause with this, with writing, you can occasionally feel like a caveman, like you've been working with pitch and tar on this brush.

老实说,我很羡慕画家,他们一个早上就能画出一幅杰作。或者是音乐家,他们有时能在30分钟内写出一些东西,并在一小时内安排好因为有了这个,有了写作,你偶尔会觉得自己像个穴居人,就像你在这把刷子上处理沥青和焦油一样。

My best stories come out of nowhere, with no concern for form at all.

我最好的故事不知从何而来,一点也不讲究形式。

巴里·汉纳

A man's got to do what a man's got to do. A woman must do what he can't.

男人要做男人该做的事。女人必须做他不能做的事。

巴里·汉纳

Randomness I love. And I still love just a holler right in the middle of an ongoing narrative. Pain or joy, ecstasy.

我喜欢随机性。我仍然喜欢一个正在进行的故事中间的叫喊。痛苦或快乐,狂喜。

巴里·汉纳

When you're not involved, other people's unhappiness seems to be about the funniest damn thing on earth because you think you can solve it, that you are God, that you are above this, and that their unhappiness is just such useless toil and agony. If it's you, it ceases to be a comedy.

当你不参与的时候,其他人的不快乐似乎是世界上最有趣的事情,因为你认为你能解决它,你是上帝,你凌驾于此,他们的不快乐就是这样无用的劳作和痛苦。如果是你,那就不再是喜剧了。

巴里·汉纳

Some writers are curiously unmusical. I don't get it. I don't get them. For me, music is essential. I always have music on when I'm doing well. Writing and music are two different mediums, but musical phrases can give you sentences that you didn't think you ever had.

有些作家出奇地缺乏音乐性。我不明白。我不明白。对我来说,音乐是必不可少的。我做得好的时候总是放音乐。写作和音乐是两种不同的媒介,但音乐短语可以给你一些你从未想过的句子。
