As handbags get ever more absurdly large, so they need to carry more stuff to validate the expense of this huge trunk with chains, buckles and padlocks on.

People collect boredom, they hoard it, they wallow in it, hoping that one day it'll be of interest and become an effete ennui. Let me tell you, it doesn't.

人们收集无聊,他们囤积无聊,沉迷其中,希望有一天它会引起人们的兴趣,成为一种过时的无聊。让我告诉你,没有。

Suits are malevolent magicians' sleeves for socialists, full of patrician loops and tricks, small, embroidered, cryptic messages of deference and privilege. They are ever the uniform of the enemy. They are also the greatest British invention ever.

西装是社会主义者的恶意魔术师的袖子,充满贵族的圈套和花招,小的,刺绣的,神秘的尊重和特权的信息。他们永远是敌人的制服。它们也是英国有史以来最伟大的发明。

When I joined the Sunday Times the people I was competing with were all 10 or 15 years younger, they all had double firsts from Oxford or Cambridge, they were all bright as new pins.

当我加入《星期日泰晤士报》时,我和我竞争的人都是10岁或15岁的年轻人,他们都有牛津或剑桥的两个第一,他们都是新的插针。

Penicillin and plastic bags help a lot, fridges and hot water make manliness more comfortable and Tom Ford's fragrance range makes it smell better, but the idea that has pushed our lives into the light more than any other -ism or -ology is feminism.

青霉素和塑料袋帮了大忙,冰箱和热水让男人味更舒服,汤姆·福特的香水系列让味道更好闻,但把我们的生活推向光明的理念比其他任何一种主义或科学都要强烈,那就是女权主义。

Because there is no better tool for writing than experience. It has very little to do with grammar and everything to do with knowing.

因为没有比经验更好的写作工具了。它与语法关系不大,与知识有关。

If New York is a wise guy, Paris a coquette, Rome a gigolo and Berlin a wicked uncle, then London is an old lady who mutters and has the second sight. She is slightly deaf, and doesn't suffer fools gladly.

如果说纽约是一个聪明人,巴黎是一个风骚女郎,罗马是一个舞男,柏林是一个邪恶的叔叔,那么伦敦就是一个喃喃自语并有第二眼力的老太太。她有点聋,不喜欢受愚人的苦。

The part that makes you unique is the bit people will like or fear, fall in love with, or try to avoid.

使你与众不同的部分是人们喜欢或害怕、爱上或试图避免的那一点。

Mourning the loss of the phone call is like pining for buggy driving or women in hats or three-martini lunches. They've gone.

为失去电话而悲伤,就像是渴望开着马车、戴着帽子的女人或者三顿马提尼午餐。他们走了。

Mr. Obama is the only popular politician left in the world. He would win an election in any one of the G-20 countries, and his fellow world leaders will do anything to take home a touch of that reflected popularity.

奥巴马是世界上仅存的受欢迎的政治家。他将赢得20国集团任何一个国家的选举,而他的世界各国领导人也将不遗余力地把这反映出的受欢迎程度带回家。

Learning Jimmy Carr riffs off by heart is not the way to anyone's heart, unless you're Jimmy Carr. And remember, the two most attractive things in a man is a sense of danger and being able to make a girl feel really safe.

除非你是吉米·卡尔,否则记住吉米·卡尔的即兴表演并不是任何人的心路历程。记住,男人最吸引人的两件事是危险感和能让女孩感到真正的安全感。
