阿兰·德波顿(Alain de Botton)名言

To a shameful extent, the charm of marriage boils down to how unpleasant it is to be alone.

在可耻的程度上,婚姻的魅力归结为独处是多么令人不快。

As for despair, it comes about when I have been a fool and hate myself and despair of my personality. I am prone to gloom, but not depression as such.

至于绝望,它发生在我一直是一个傻瓜,恨自己和我的个性绝望。我倾向于忧郁,但不是抑郁本身。

阿兰·德波顿

I assemble my ideas in pieces on a computer file, then gradually find a place for them on a piece of scaffolding I erect.

我把我的想法拼凑在一个电脑文件里,然后逐渐在我搭建的脚手架上找到一个地方。

Becoming a writer wasn't a choice (there would have been far more worthwhile things to do); it was the best, most fruitful way of being a bit ill.

成为一个作家不是一个选择(会有更多值得做的事情);这是最好的,最富有成效的一种生病的方式。

There's something called religion, and it was invented a long time ago by people who felt very out of control with their lives, who didn't know... why the sun always rose over the mountains.

有一种叫做宗教的东西,它是很久以前由那些觉得生活失控的人发明的,他们不知道。。。为什么太阳总是从山上升起。

阿兰·德波顿

Fantasies can be great, but we shouldn't make the wedding a fantasy, because the wedding is the gateway to married life. It shouldn't be a moment of illusion; it should be a moment of preparation.

幻想可以是伟大的,但我们不应该让婚礼成为幻想,因为婚礼是通往婚姻生活的大门。这不应该是一时的幻觉;这应该是一个准备的时刻。

阿兰·德波顿

On paper, being good sounds great but a lot depends on the atmosphere of the workplace or community we live in. We tend to become good or bad depending on the cues sent out within a particular space.

从理论上讲,做个好人听起来很棒,但很大程度上取决于我们所生活的工作场所或社区的氛围。我们倾向于成为好的或坏的取决于在一个特定的空间发出的线索。
