If only Queen Elizabeth II had the intellectual, political and linguistic skills of Queen Elizabeth I, many people would support giving her some of the powers of an elected president.

如果伊丽莎白二世女王拥有伊丽莎白一世的知识、政治和语言技能,许多人会支持赋予她民选总统的一些权力。

Of all liars the most arrogant are biographers: those who would have us believe, having surveyed a few boxes full of letters, diaries, bank statements and photographs, that they can play at the recording angel and tell the whole truth about another human life.

在所有的说谎者中,最傲慢的是传记作者:他们会让我们相信,在调查了几个装满信件、日记、银行对账单和照片的盒子之后,他们可以扮演记录天使,讲述另一个人生活的全部真相。

Nearly all monster stories depend for their success on Jack killing the Giant, Beowulf or St. George slaying the Dragon, Harry Potter triumphing over the basilisk. That is their inner grammar, and the whole shape of the story leads towards it.

几乎所有的怪物故事的成功都取决于杰克杀死巨人,贝奥武夫或圣乔治杀死龙,哈利波特战胜蛇怪。这就是他们的内在语法,而故事的整体形态正是通向它的。

If you read about Mussolini or Stalin or some of these other great monsters of history, they were at it all the time, that they were getting up in the morning very early. They were physically very active. They didn't eat lunch.

如果你读到墨索里尼、斯大林或其他一些历史上的大怪物,他们总是这样,早上起得很早。他们的身体非常活跃。他们没有吃午饭。
