艾伦·贝内特(Alan Bennett)名言

I've never seen the point of the sea, except where it meets the land. The shore has a point. The sea has none.

我从未见过大海的尽头,除了它与陆地的交汇处。海岸有一个点。大海一片空白。

I didn't even have a clear idea of why I wanted to go to Oxford - apart from the fact I had fallen in love with the architecture. It certainly wasn't out of some great sense of academic or intellectual achievement. In many ways, my education only began after I'd left university.

我甚至不清楚自己为什么要去牛津——除了我爱上了牛津的建筑。这当然不是出于某种学术或智力上的成就感。在很多方面,我的教育是在大学毕业后才开始的。

I can't complain that I've had a public all through my writing life, but people don't quite know what I've written. People don't read you too closely. Perhaps, after I've died, they'll look at my stuff, and read it through, and find there's more in it. That may be wrong, but that's what I comfort myself with.

我不能抱怨在我的写作生涯中一直受到公众的关注,但是人们不太了解我写了什么。人们不会把你看得太仔细。也许,在我死后,他们会看看我的东西,通读一遍,发现里面还有更多。这也许是错的,但这正是我安慰自己的地方。

I do not long for the world as it was when I was a child. I do not long for the person I was in that world. I do not want to be the person I am now in that world then. None of the forms nostalgia can take fits. I found childhood boring. I was glad it was over.

我不再像小时候那样渴望这个世界。我不渴望那个世界上的我。我不想成为那个世界上现在的我。没有一种形式的怀旧可以适合。我觉得童年很无聊。我很高兴结束了。

We were all miners in our family. My father was a miner. My mother is a miner. These are miner's hands, but we were all artists, I suppose, really. But I was the first one who had the urge to express myself on paper rather than at the coalface.

我们家都是矿工。我父亲是个矿工。我妈妈是个矿工。这是矿工的手,但我们都是艺术家,我想,真的。但我是第一个有冲动在纸上而不是在煤面上表达自己的人。

We started off trying to set up a small anarchist community, but people wouldn't obey the rules.

我们开始试图建立一个小的无政府主义社区,但人们不遵守规则。

Children always assume the sexual lives of their parents come to a grinding halt at their conception.

孩子们总是认为他们父母的性生活在他们怀孕的时候就停止了。

I always feel over-appreciated but underestimated.

我总是觉得自己被高估了,但被低估了。
