拉比·阿拉梅丁(Rabih Alameddine)名言

There are over 1 million refugees in Lebanon, a country of 4 million people. How do we solve that? I have no idea. What's going on, I really don't know.

黎巴嫩有400万人口,难民超过100万. 我们该如何解决? 我不知道. 这是怎么回事,我真的不知道.

In school in Lebanon, we were not allowed to speak Arabic during breaks - it had to be French or English.

在黎巴嫩的学校里,我们不允许在休息时间讲阿拉伯语-它必须是法语或英语.

拉比·阿拉梅丁

I read Shakespeare when I was 14 because it's what we were taught.

我14岁时读过莎士比亚,因为那是我们所教的.

拉比·阿拉梅丁

I get upset about what is taken as great literature and what is cute and exotic.

我对那些被认为是伟大的文学作品,什么是可爱而异国情调的作品感到沮丧.

拉比·阿拉梅丁

I stuck out more in an English public school than I would have had I marched in a May Day parade with the Red Army in Moscow or sashayed the Yves St. Laurent catwalk with supermodels or hunted seals with the Inuit or - well, you get the idea.

我在一家英国公立学校中的表现要比在莫斯科与红军参加五一游行或游行Yves St时要多得多. 劳伦(Laurent)与超模一起走秀,或者因纽特人(Inuit)追捕海豹,或者-知道了.

拉比·阿拉梅丁

A soccer game is a Wagner opera. The narrative sets up, the tension builds, the music ebbs and flows, the strings, the horns, more tension, and suddenly a moment of pure bliss, trumpet-tongued Gabriel sings, and gods descend from Olympus to dance - this peak of ecstasy.

足球比赛是瓦格纳歌剧. 叙事开始,紧张气氛建立,音乐起伏不定,弦乐,号角,更多的紧张感,突然间出现了纯洁的幸福,喇叭吹奏的加百列歌唱,神灵从奥林匹斯山降下来跳舞-狂喜的高峰

拉比·阿拉梅丁

In 1975, I left the burning city of Beirut for the quiet insanity of England. To say that short, frail and wispy 15-year-old me didn't fit in would be such an understatement as to be a joke.

1975年,我离开了燃烧的城市贝鲁特,前往英格兰安静的精神病院. 说我不适合矮个子,脆弱而纤弱的15岁孩子,简直就是开玩笑.

拉比·阿拉梅丁

I oscillate between being cynical and being naive on a regular basis. I always think that not much shocks me until something much too obvious does.

我经常在愤世嫉俗和天真之间摇摆不定. 我一直认为,直到有些太明显的事情发生时,我才会感到震惊.
