卡尔文·特林(Calvin Trillin)名言

I never eat in a restaurant that's over a hundred feet off the ground and won't stand still.

我从不在离地一百多英尺的餐馆吃饭,也不会站着不动。

The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.

我母亲最了不起的是,三十年来,她只为家里的剩饭剩饭服务。原来的饭菜一直没有找到。

When it comes to Chinese food I have always operated under the policy that the less known about the preparation the better. A wise diner who is invited to visit the kitchen replies by saying, as politely as possible, that he has a pressing engagement elsewhere.

谈到中餐,我一直奉行的政策是:对中餐的烹调知识越少越好。一位受邀参观厨房的明智的食客回答说,他尽可能礼貌地说,他在别处有一个紧迫的约会。

As far as I'm concerned, 'whom' is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler.

在我看来,“谁”这个词是为了让每个人听起来都像个管家而发明的。

卡尔文·特林

I don't cook. I don't know anything about food. I've never reviewed a restaurant.

我不做饭。我对食物一无所知。我从没看过餐馆。

卡尔文·特林

I never did very well in math - I could never seem to persuade the teacher that I hadn't meant my answers literally.

我的数学成绩一直不好——我似乎永远也说服不了老师我的答案不是字面意思。

卡尔文·特林

The food in such places is so tasteless because the members associate spices and garlic with just the sort of people they're trying to keep out.

这些地方的食物太无味了,因为成员们把香料和大蒜与他们想挡在门外的人联系在一起。

卡尔文·特林

I actually think of being funny as an odd turn of mind, like a mild disability, some weird way of looking at the world that you can't get rid of.

事实上,我认为幽默是一种奇怪的思维方式,比如一种轻微的残疾,一种你无法摆脱的奇怪的看待世界的方式。
