William Faulkner (小说家)

“I have found that the greatest help in meeting any problem with decency and self-respect and whatever courage is demanded, is to know where you yourself stand. That is, to have in words what you believe and are acting from.”

— William Faulkner, Novelist

「我发现让人有风度、有尊严及有勇气面对任何问题,最大的助力来自于知道自己的立足点为何;也就是说,写下你相信的事及你行为的出发点。」– 威廉‧福克纳 (小说家)

  • decency (n.) 合宜得体,展现对他人的尊重。例:If they’re going to charge a fee, they should at least have the decency to notify us in advance. (如果他们要收费,他们至少应要能事先通知我们。) “what ever courage is demanded” 是「任何所需具备的勇气」。in words 是「写下来」。
  • 威廉‧福克纳 (1897-1962) 是美国小说家及短篇故事作家,在 1949 年获得诺贝尔文学奖,被认做是 20 世纪最具有影响力的作家之一。
