安德鲁·诺曼·威尔逊(A. N. Wilson)名言

The death of any man aged 56 is very sad for his widow and family. And no one would deny that Steve Jobs was a brilliant and highly innovative technician, with great business flair and marketing ability.

任何一个56岁的男人的死都令他的遗w和家人感到非常难过。 没有人会否认史蒂夫·乔布斯是一位出色且高度创新的技术人员,具有出色的业务才能和营销能力。

Of all liars the most arrogant are biographers: those who would have us believe, having surveyed a few boxes full of letters, diaries, bank statements and photographs, that they can play at the recording angel and tell the whole truth about another human life.

在所有骗子中,最傲慢的是传记作家:那些希望我们相信的人,在调查了几箱装满信件,日记,银行对账单和照片的箱子后,可以在唱片天使面前玩耍,并讲述另一种人类生活的全部真相。

It is remarkable how easily children and grown-ups adapt to living in a dictatorship organised by lunatics.

值得注意的是,儿童和大人如何轻松地适应疯子组织的独裁统治。

Iris Murdoch did influence my early novels very much, and influence is never entirely good.

艾里斯·默多克(Iris Murdoch)确实对我的早期小说产生了很大的影响,而且影响从来都不是完全好的。

If only Queen Elizabeth II had the intellectual, political and linguistic skills of Queen Elizabeth I, many people would support giving her some of the powers of an elected president.

如果只有伊丽莎白二世女王具备伊丽莎白一世女王的知识,政治和语言能力,许多人就会支持赋予她当选总统某些权力。

Reading about Queen Victoria has been a passion of mine since, as a child, I came across Laurence Housman's play 'Happy and Glorious,' with its Ernest Shepard illustrations.

自从小时候起,我就对劳伦斯·霍斯曼(Laurence Housman)的剧本《快乐与光荣》(Ernest Shepard)进行了插画,从那时起,对维多利亚女王的读物就引起了我的兴趣。

It seems astonishing to be paid for indulging in pure pleasure. For me to go to Coburg is rather as if a trainspotter was sent for a few weeks to Swindon or a chocoholic asked on holiday by Green and Black.

沉迷于纯粹的快乐中而付出的代价似乎是惊人的。 对我来说,去科堡就像是将一个去火车站的人送到史云顿(Swindon)待了几周,或者是格林和布莱克(Green and Black)度假时要求的一名巧克力客。

Watching a whole cluster of friends, and my own mother, die over quite a short space of time convinced me that purely materialist 'explanations' for our mysterious human existence simply won't do - on an intellectual level.

看着一群朋友和我自己的母亲在很短的时间内死亡,这使我相信,在我们的智力层面上,纯粹的唯物主义者对我们神秘的人类生存的“解释”是行不通的。
