几米绘本中英对照

1  A conundrum of a city. Same scenes, same routes, and same destinies..
2  As we promised, to face the world drowsily in our most languid positions.
3  Hurrying in the world of emptiness, I keep reminding myself "I‘m almost there"...
4  The culmination of love is blindness.
Who, at the peak of happiness, can remember the number of Cupid, or any of the fun days around.
5  The sapling that bears our mark of love has grown into a big tree,
but our once fervent love has gone with the wind.
The little mark has become a scar.
When the wind blows, we hear the sigh of the forest...
6  Cruelty of reality. Volatile happiness.
Those out of sight, are they really not there? Those remembered, will they last forever?
7  Listen quietly, to the sound of your heart. Cheerful melodies may rise.
Some simple, some profound, some gentle, some loud.
8  We just can‘t let go, when the storm is ahead.
9  She has been patient, believing the best is worth the wait.
Yet the last apple fallen from the tree is usually sour.
The love that rocks your soul is hardly the result of a long wait.
10  I held tight to the world, but rejected.
If I had saved the effort, would the pain be less?
11  Save a place for yourself, before going out to love.
You don‘t have to know who to love, how to love, or how long your love will last.
Just wait for the one. Maybe there will never be the one. But just wait, because it already is your reward.


1  迷宫般的城市,让人习惯看相同的景物,走相同的路线,到相同的目的地...

2  我们早就约定了,要以最慵懒的姿势,恍惚地面对这个世界。

3  我在空寂的世界赶路,并不断地提醒自己,就快到了,就快到了……
4  爱到极致,我已变得盲目。
在幸福的峰巅,谁还记得住爱神的电话号码,谁还记得住周围许多有趣的日子。

5  刻下爱的见证的小树,已长成大树。
而我们狂热的恋情,早随风飘散。
小小的印记,变成巨大的伤痕。
风起时,我听见整个森林的叹息……
6  现实的残酷,幸福的易逝。
看不见的,是不是就等于不存在?记住的,是不是永远不会消失?
7  静静聆听内心世界的声音,常常有令人欢喜的旋律响起。
可以简单、可以深沉,可以抒情、可以喧闹...
8  总希望在风雨欲来的时候,抱紧一些不想放弃的想法。
9  她一直坚持宁缺毋滥,相信最好的值得耐心等待。
偏偏最后掉下的红苹果,通常是酸的。
而惊心动魄的伟大爱情,通常不是等来的。
10  我用力抓紧世界,最终却仍被世界淘汰。
如果一开始就松手,我的痛苦会不会少些?
11  在自己面前应该一直留有一个地方,然后去爱。
不知道是谁,不知道如何去爱,也不知道可以爱多久。
只是等待一次爱情,也许永远都没有人,可是这种等待就是爱情本身。

一 Zi gong (a disciple of Confucius) asked:
"Is there one word that may serve as a rule of practice for all one's life?"
The Master replied:
"How about 'shu' [reciprocity]:
“Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself?"

二 "Is there any one word that could guide a person throughout life?"
"Is not reciprocity such a word?"

三 What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others."
子貢問曰:“有一言而可以終身行之者乎”?
子曰:“其术乎!己所不欲、勿施於人。”

"Regard your neighbor's gain as your own gain, and your neighbor's loss as your own loss."

"The sage has no interest of his own, but takes the interests of the people as his own. –Laozi

He is kind to the kind; he is also kind to the unkind: for Virtue is kind. He is faithful to the faithful; he is also faithful to the unfaithful: for Virtue is faithful." –Laozi
见人之得,如己之得;见人之失,如己之失。
老子《太上感兴篇》

圣人常无心,以百姓之心为心;
         
善者,吾善之;不善者,吾亦善之;德善。
信者,吾信之;不信者,吾亦信之;德信。
(老子•道德经,2 :49 )

If people regarded other people's families in the same way that they regard their own, who then would incite their own family to attack that of another? For one would do for others as one would do for oneself.
—Mozi

兼相爱,交相利。天下兼相爱,爱人若爱其身。   
-墨子
