凯特琳·玛丽·多尔蒂(Caitlin Doughty)名言

Ever since childhood, when I found out that the ultimate fate for all humans was death, sheer terror and morbid curiosity had been fighting for supremacy in my mind.

从童年开始,当我发现所有人的最终命运是死亡,纯粹的恐惧和病态的好奇心一直在为我心中的至高无上而斗争。

凯特琳·玛丽·多尔蒂

The definition of 'morbid' is an unhealthy preoccupation with death. Unfortunately, there's no word to mean the perfectly healthy preoccupation with death, which is what I have.

“病态”的定义是对死亡不健康的关注。不幸的是,没有一个词是指对死亡的完全健康的关注,这就是我所拥有的。

I am a mortician who tells you that you don't necessarily need a mortician.

我是一个殡仪师,他告诉你你不一定需要殡仪师。

凯特琳·玛丽·多尔蒂

Death in its natural state can be very beautiful. When you think about a body that's died of natural causes - family taking care of it - all of that is very beautiful.

自然状态下的死亡是非常美丽的。当你想到一具死于自然原因的尸体-家人照顾它-所有这些都是非常美丽的。

凯特琳·玛丽·多尔蒂

In America, burial means an embalmed body in a heavy-duty casket with a vault built over it, so that the ground doesn't settle. That body is encased in many layers of denial.

在美国,埋葬是指在重型棺材中进行防腐处理的尸体,棺材上建有拱顶,这样地面就不会下沉。身体被层层的否认所包围。

凯特琳·玛丽·多尔蒂

I've worked very hard to become comfortable with how death works and why it happens. I now know that death isn't out to get me.

我已经非常努力地工作,以适应死亡是如何工作的,为什么会发生。我现在知道死亡并不是为了救我。

凯特琳·玛丽·多尔蒂

I think about death most of the day, every day. We can't escape death, and choosing to ignore it only makes it more scary.

我每天大部分时间都在想死亡。我们无法逃避死亡,选择无视死亡只会让死亡更可怕。

凯特琳·玛丽·多尔蒂

If we ignore our death, we end up just going around completely oblivious to why we do the things we do!

如果我们忽视了死亡,我们最终会完全忘记我们为什么要做这些事情!
