艾伦·莱特曼(Alan Lightman)名言

Music is, of course, a universal emotional experience, cutting across cultures and languages. I studied piano for ten years as a child and consider that experience one of the most valuable in my life.

当然,音乐是一种跨文化、跨语言的普遍情感体验。我小时候学了十年钢琴,认为那是我一生中最宝贵的经历之一。

I think e-mail is representative of our fast food mentality in the United States, where everything has gotten faster and faster, and we're required to respond to inputs more quickly with less time for thought and reflection. I believe that we need to slow down.

我认为电子邮件代表了我们在美国的快餐心态,在美国,一切都变得越来越快,我们被要求以更少的时间来思考和思考,更快地回应输入。我认为我们需要放慢脚步。

I have always loved magic realism as a form of writing. I have also been fascinated for a long time with the intersection of science and religion.

I've taken a philosophical position on e-mail. Although I think it's a wonderful communication technology, and it has a lot of good uses, it is abused quite a lot.

我对电子邮件持哲学立场。虽然我认为这是一种很好的通信技术,有很多很好的用途,但它被滥用的情况却很多。

With a background in science I am extremely interested in the meeting ground of science, theology, and philosophy, especially the ethical questions at the border of science and theology.

我有科学背景,对科学、神学和哲学的汇合点非常感兴趣,尤其是科学和神学边界上的伦理问题。

I have for a long time loved fabulist, imaginative fiction, such as the writing of Italo Calvino, Jose Saramago, Michael Bulgakov, and Salman Rushdie. I also like the magic realist writers, such as Borges and Marquez, and feel that interesting truths can be learned about our world by exploring highly distorted worlds.

很长一段时间以来,我都喜欢寓言式的、富有想象力的小说,比如伊塔洛·卡尔维诺(Italo Calvino)、何塞·萨拉马戈(Jose Saramago)、迈克尔·布尔加科夫(Michael Bulgakov)和萨尔曼·拉什迪(Salman Rushdie)的作品。我也喜欢魔幻现实主义作家,比如博尔赫斯和马奎兹,我觉得通过探索高度扭曲的世界,可以了解我们世界的有趣真相。

I have too many friends who tell me that they spend the first hour of every morning going through their e-mail messages. I'd like to use my time more carefully.

我有太多的朋友告诉我,他们每天早上第一个小时都在浏览电子邮件。我想更仔细地利用我的时间。
