伯纳德·康威尔(Bernard Cornwell)名言

Of course some days are easier than others, but my worst day is better than being in most humdrum occupations.

当然,有些日子比其他日子容易,但我最糟糕的一天总比从事大多数单调乏味的工作要好。

I'm fortunate that the books sell, but even more fortunate to live in Chatham, to be very happily married and to have, on the whole, a fairly clear conscience.

我很幸运这些书能卖出去,但更幸运的是住在查塔姆,婚姻幸福,总的来说,问心无愧。

伯纳德·康威尔

What I mean by that is that the point of life, as I see it, is not to write books or scale mountains or sail oceans, but to achieve happiness, and preferably an unselfish happiness.

我的意思是,在我看来,人生的意义不在于写书、爬山、航海,而在于获得幸福,最好是无私的幸福。

伯纳德·康威尔

Anyone who claims to have an entirely clear conscience is almost certainly a bore.

任何声称问心无愧的人几乎肯定是个令人厌烦的人。

伯纳德·康威尔

So the books have a greater appeal to a British audience, but that hasn't stopped them making best-seller lists in places like Brazil, Japan and at least a dozen other countries.

因此,这些书对英国读者有着更大的吸引力,但这并没有阻止他们在巴西、日本和至少十几个其他国家登上畅销书排行榜。

Judy couldn't move to Britain for family reasons, so I had to come to the States, and the U.S. government wouldn't give me a Green Card, so I airily told her I'd write a book.

朱迪因为家庭原因不能搬到英国,所以我不得不去美国,美国政府也不给我绿卡,所以我轻率地告诉她我要写本书。

伯纳德·康威尔

Looking back, of course, it was irresponsible, mad, forlorn, idiotic, but if you don't take chances then you'll never have a winning hand, and I've no regrets.

当然,回首,这是不负责任、疯狂、孤寂、白痴,但如果你不冒险,你就永远不会有胜利者的手,我也没有遗憾。

伯纳德·康威尔

I sometimes wonder what would have happened if the first book had not sold... doesn't bear thinking about, but I suppose we'd have made it work somehow.

我有时想知道如果第一本书没有卖出去会发生什么。。。我不忍心去想,但我想我们总算能成功的。
