艾伦·莱特曼(Alan Lightman)名言

We're plugged in 24 hours a day now. We're all part of one big machine, whether we are conscious of that or not. And if we can't unplug from that machine, eventually we're going to become mindless.

我们现在每天24小时接通电源。不管我们意识到与否,我们都是一台大机器的一部分。如果我们不能从那台机器上拔出电源,最终我们会变得无意识。

I still will sit down at the piano and play when I am wrestling with something emotionally or just want to move into the musical world.

我仍然会坐在钢琴前弹钢琴,当我在感情上挣扎或只是想进入音乐世界。

I have too many friends who tell me that they spend the first hour of every morning going through their e-mail messages. I'd like to use my time more carefully.

我有太多的朋友告诉我,他们每天早上第一个小时都在浏览电子邮件。我想更仔细地利用我的时间。

Except for a God who sits down after the universe begins, all other gods conflict with the assumptions of science.

除了一个在宇宙开始后就坐的神之外,其他所有的神都与科学的假设相冲突。

I have for a long time loved fabulist, imaginative fiction, such as the writing of Italo Calvino, Jose Saramago, Michael Bulgakov, and Salman Rushdie. I also like the magic realist writers, such as Borges and Marquez, and feel that interesting truths can be learned about our world by exploring highly distorted worlds.

很长一段时间以来,我都喜欢寓言式的、富有想象力的小说,比如伊塔洛·卡尔维诺(Italo Calvino)、何塞·萨拉马戈(Jose Saramago)、迈克尔·布尔加科夫(Michael Bulgakov)和萨尔曼·拉什迪(Salman Rushdie)的作品。我也喜欢魔幻现实主义作家,比如博尔赫斯和马奎兹,我觉得通过探索高度扭曲的世界,可以了解我们世界的有趣真相。

With a background in science I am extremely interested in the meeting ground of science, theology, and philosophy, especially the ethical questions at the border of science and theology.

我有科学背景,对科学、神学和哲学的汇合点非常感兴趣,尤其是科学和神学边界上的伦理问题。

If I were not a writer, I would spend more time doing the things that I am already doing, which include doing research in physics, teaching, and running a nonprofit organization with a mission to empower women in Cambodia.

如果我不是一个作家,我会花更多的时间做我已经在做的事情,包括做物理研究,教学,和经营一个非营利组织的使命是赋予柬埔寨妇女权力。

I've taken a philosophical position on e-mail. Although I think it's a wonderful communication technology, and it has a lot of good uses, it is abused quite a lot.

我对电子邮件持哲学立场。虽然我认为这是一种很好的通信技术,有很多很好的用途,但它被滥用的情况却很多。
