音乐噪音——名句欣赏(九十二)
  1. Music is essentially useless, as life is. George Santayana, Little Essays, 1920 音乐本质上毫无用处,就像生命一样。
  2. I like Wagner’s music better than anybody’s. It is so loud that one can talk the whole time without people hearing what one says. Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1891 我喜欢瓦格纳的音乐,谁的也不及他的。这音乐声响那么大,你可以一直说话,而谁也听不见你说什么。
  3. Musical people are so absurdly unreasonable. They always want one to be perfectly dumb at the very moment when one is longing to be absolutely deaf. Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband, 1895 音乐人如此不可理喻。他们总期望你完全哑巴,就在你但愿彻底聋掉的时刻。
  4. Q: What happens when you play country music backwards?
    A: You sober up, your wife comes home and your dog comes back to life. Anon.问:你把乡村音乐倒着弹奏会怎样?答:你清醒起来,你妻子回家来,你的狗苏醒过来。
  5. If the Phone Doesn’t Ring, It’s Me. Jimmy Buffett, Wyland Arnold Jennings and Michael E. Utley, 1985 如果电话没响,那就是我打来的。
  6. If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don’t Want To Be Right. Raymond Jackson, Carl Hampton and Homer Banks, 1972 如果爱你是错,那我就不想正 确。
  7. Of all the noises, I think music the least disagreeable. Samuel Johnson, Morning Chronicle, 1816 在所有噪音中,我觉得音乐是最不让人讨厌的。
  8. He fell in love with himself at first sight and it is a passion to which he has always remained faithful. Self-love seems so often unrequited. Anthony Powell, The Acceptance World, 1955他对自己一见钟情,这是他一直忠贞不渝的激 情。自恋好像常常是无回报的。
  9. Every authority on etiquette discusses how to put things into your stomach, but very few discuss how to get them back out in a hurry. Actually, there is no way to make vomiting courteous. You have to do the next best thing, which is to vomit in such a way that the story you tell about it later will be amusing. P. J. O’Rourke, Modern Manners, 1983 每个礼仪权威都在讨论如何如何吃进东西,很少有人讨论如何急促地吐出。事实上,没有哪种方式能让呕吐很有礼貌。你只能退而求其次了,那就是以这样的方式呕吐,以便你后来讲述起来能给人以娱乐。
  10. The Navy’s a very gentlemanly business. You fire at the horizon to sink a ship and then you pull people out of the water and say, ‘Frightfully sorry, old chap.’ William Golding, Sunday Times, 1984 海 军的事很有绅士味。你冲着天边开炮,打沉一条船,然后你救人出水,对他说:“非常抱歉,老兄。”
