米兰·昆德拉是捷克著名作家。他的《笑忘书》、《玩笑》、《不能承受的生命之轻》等作品享誉世界,他的作品富含哲理,引发了众多读者的共鸣与深思。就让我们一起品读《不能承受的生命之轻》中的经典美句,走进米兰·昆德拉的文学世界。

1、He suddenly recalled from Plato's Symposium: People were hermaphrodites until God split then in two, and now all the halves wander the world over seeking one another. Love is the longing for the half of ourselves we have lost.
他想起了柏拉图《会饮篇》中那个著名传说: 以前人类是两性同体的,上帝把他们分成了两半, 从那时起,这两半就开始在世界上游荡,相互寻找。爱情,是对我们自己失去的另一半的渴望。

2、But when the strong were too weak to hurt the weak, the weak had to be strong enough to leave.
正因为弱才知道要强,才应该在强者也弱得不能伤害弱者的时刻离开。

3、Human time does not turn in a circle; it runs ahead in a straight line. That is why man cannot be happy: happiness is the longing for repetition.
人类之时间并不是循环转动的,而是直线前行。这就是为什么人类不可能幸福的缘故,幸福是对重复的渴望。

4、The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become.
负担越重,我们的生命越贴近大地,它就越真切实在。

5、“Why don't you ever use your strength on me?" she said.“Because love means renouncing strength."
她问:“为什么你不用你的力量对付我呢?”“因为爱就是放弃力量。

6、Loves are like empires: when the idea they are founded on crumbles, they, too, fade away.
爱情就像是帝国:它们建立在信念之上,信念一旦消失,帝国也随之灭亡

7、Does he love me? Does he love anyone more than me? Does he love me more than I love him? Perhaps all the questions we ask of love, to measure, test, probe, and save it, have the additional effect of cutting it short.
他爱我吗?他有更爱的人吗?他爱我是否比我爱她更深?这些探讨爱情、度量其深度、对其进行种种猜测和研究的问题,也许正是它们把爱情扼杀了。

8、When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.

当心灵在说话,理智出来高声反对,是不恰当的。

9、For there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.
没有比同情心更重的了。哪怕我们自身的痛苦,也比不上同别人一起感受的痛苦沉重。为了别人,站在别人的立场上,痛苦会随着想象而加剧,在千百次的回荡反射中越来越沉重。

10、The brain appears to possess a special area which we might call poetic memory and which records everything that charms or touches us, that makes our lives beautiful. Love begins with a metaphor. Which is to say, love begins at the point when a woman enters her first word into our poetic memory.
大脑中有一个专门的区域,我们可称之为诗化记忆,它记录的,是让我们陶醉,令我们感动,赋予我们生活以美丽的一切。爱开始于一个女人某句话印在我们诗化记忆中的那一刻。

11、Human life occurs only once, and the reason we cannot determine which of our decisions are good and which bad is that in a given situation we can make only one decision; we are not granted a second, third, or fourth life in which to compare various decisions.
人只能活一回,我们无法验证决定的对错,因为,在任何情况下,我们只能做一个决定。上天不会赋予我们第二次、第三次、第四次生命以供比较不同的决定。

12、 The moment someone keeps an eye on what we do, we involuntarily make allowances for that eye, and nothing we do is truthful. Having a public, keeping a public in mind, means living in lies.
一旦有旁人见证我们的行为,不管我们乐意不乐意,都得适应旁观我们的目光,我们所做的一切便无一是真了。

13、In the sunset of dissolution, everything is illuminated by the aura of nostalgia, even the guillotine.
橘黄色的落日余晖给 一切都带上一丝怀旧的温情,哪怕是断头台。

14、There is no means of testing which decision is better, because there is no basis for comparison. We live everything as it comes, without warning, like an actor going on cold. And what can life be worth if the first rehearsal for life is life itself?
没有任何方法可以检验哪种抉择是好的,因为不存在任何比较。一切都是马上经历,仅此一次,不能准备。好像一个演员没有排练就上了舞台。如果生命的初次排练就已经是生命本身,那么生命到底有什么价值?
