It's a terrible poison, writing.

这是一种可怕的毒药,写作。

Human beings love stories because they safely show us beginnings, middles and ends.

人类之所以喜欢故事,是因为它们可以安全地向我们展示起点,中间和终点。

I don't think it is an easy thing to write and expect to be commercial, even if you are from Venus and a hermaphrodite.

即使您来自金星和雌雄同体,我也不认为写任何东西并期望将其商业化并不容易。

As a little girl, I didn't like stories about little girls. I liked stories about dragons and beasts and princes and princesses and fear and terror and the Four Musketeers and almost anything other than nice little girls making moral decisions about whether to tell the teacher about what the other little girl did or did not do.

作为一个小女孩,我不喜欢关于小女孩的故事。 我喜欢关于龙,兽,王子,公主,恐惧和恐怖以及四剑客的故事,除了善良的小女孩几乎做出决定是否告诉老师另一个小女孩做什么或不做的道德决定之外,几乎没有其他事情。

I am a profound pessimist both about life and about human relations and about politics and ecology. Humans are inadequate and stupid creatures who sooner or later make a mess, and those who are trying to do good do a lot more damage than those who are muddling along.

我对生活,人际关系以及政治和生态问题都非常悲观。 人类是不适当的愚蠢动物,迟早会造成混乱,而那些试图做善事的人所造成的损害要比那些一头雾水的人遭受的损害更大。

I watch a lot of sport on television. I only watch certain sports, and I only watch them live - I don't think I've ever been able to watch a replay of a match or game of which the result was already decided. I feel bound to cheat and look up what can be looked up.

我在电视上看了很多体育节目。 我只看某些体育比赛,而我只看现场直播-我认为我以前从未看过比赛或比赛的重播,而比赛结果已经确定。 我觉得一定要作弊,抬头看看可以抬头的东西。

Reading a newspaper is like reading someone's letters, as opposed to a biography or a history. The writer really does not know what will happen. A novelist needs to feel what that is like.

读报纸就像读某人的来信,而不是传记或历史。 作家真的不知道会发生什么。 小说家需要去感受那种感觉。

安东妮娅·苏珊·达菲·戴菲·霍夫巴夫人

If a novelist tells you something she knows or thinks, and you believe her, that is not because either of you think she is God, but because she is doing her work - as a novelist.

如果小说家告诉您她知道或想到的事情,并且您相信她,那不是因为你们俩都认为她是上帝,而是因为她正在做自己的工作-作为小说家。
