To Look Life in the Face

I

Dear Leonard, to look life in the face. Always to look life in the face. And to know it for what it is. At last, to know it, to love it for what it is. And then to put it away.

Leonard, always the years between us. Always the years. Always, the love. Always, the hours.

 

译文一:親愛的 Leonard,直視生活本身吧,一定要記得直直地注視著生活的臉龐,直到了解它到底是什麼為止。至少去了解它,以它原始面目去愛它。然後放下。

Leonard,要記住我們之間的這些年……一定要記得這些時光、愛,與這些時時刻刻。

 

译文二:亲爱的 Leonard,要直面人生,永远直面人生,了解它的真谛,永远的了解,爱它的本质,然后,放弃它。

Leonard,我们之间的这些岁月,永恒的岁月。一直记得感受,那些爱。一直记得感受,那些时光。

 

村上春樹在預言鳥篇裡面碰巧也有講到 look life in the face。

I remember one morning, getting up at dawn, there was such sense of possibility, you know that feeling? And I remember thinking myself, “So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there would be more.” It never occured to me that it wasn’t the beginning. It was the happiness. It was the moment. Right then.

 

译文:我記得一天早上,黎明的時候起來,有一種充滿可能的感覺…你有那種感覺過嗎?我記得自己這樣想著,「所以,這就是幸福的開始囉。毫無疑問地,還有更多的幸福在後面。」我從來沒有想到那根本不是幸福的開始。那就是幸福本身。就是那個時刻,那一分那一秒。
