帕吉特·鲍威尔(Padgett Powell)名言

I've had an addiction for a long time to the whole business of maximizing one's potential, what I call human activation. The vehicle for actualizing oneself is choice, options, seeking out the proper choices.

我一直沉迷于使自己的潜能最大化的整个业务,这就是我所说的人为激活. 实现自己的工具是选择,选择,寻找正确的选择.

Writing books is a nice retreat. There's nothing quite like diving into a book for a few hours. That is a big time vacation.

写书是一个不错的选择. 没有什么比潜入一本书数小时更像了. 那是一个很大的假期.

It's hard to say conversation has become a minimal thing, because look at the rise of mobile communications in the last 10 years. It used to be only the president had a mobile phone. Now everyone on earth, even if they have nothing else, they have a cell phone.

很难说对话已经成为一件很简单的事情,因为看看过去十年来移动通信的兴起. 过去只有总统有手机. 现在地球上的每个人,即使没有别的,也拥有一部手机.

If you're going to write a book that might, in its very best accidental career, sell 30,000 copies, you've got to have a day job.

如果您打算写一本书,在其最好的偶然职业中,该书可能卖出30,000册,那么您就必须有一份临时工作.

I was always the new kid, and I got to know the language and the politics of being on the outside, looking in. Never being in the clique - always being a student of the clique, a subversive, and I could look around and identify the other guys who were excluded.

我一直都是新手,我必须了解在外面看的语言和政治. 永远不会成为集团成员-永远是集团的学生,具有颠覆性,我可以环顾四周,找出其他被排除在外的人.

帕吉特·鲍威尔

I don't write anything if I'm not agreeable and liking it. I'm not one of these slavers who wads up paper. It comes or it doesn't.

如果我不同意并喜欢它,我不会写任何东西. 我不是这些卷土重来的奴隶之一. 它来了还是没有.

帕吉特·鲍威尔

When I write, I want something to sound good itself.

当我写作时,我希望自己听起来不错.
