Eve Ensler (劇作家)

“Good is towing the line, being behaved, being quiet, being passive, fitting in, being liked… Great is being messy, having a belly, speaking your mind, standing up for what you believe in, fighting for another paradigm, not letting people talk you out of what you know to be true.”

— Eve Ensler, Playwright

「聽從指示、有禮貌、安靜、做事消極、融入群體、被人們喜歡,這些是普通的反映… 凌亂不堪、挺著肚子、說出心中想法、為你相信的事奮戰、追求另一種思維模式、不讓別人說服你放棄你知道是對的事,這些是傑出的反映。」– 伊芙‧恩斯勒 (劇作家)

  • tow/toe the line 聽從指示。例:Not everyone was happy with the plan, but most of them toed the line. (不是每個人都喜歡此計畫,但多數人都聽從指示。) behave (v.) 行為,表現。例:a well-behaved child (有禮貌的孩子)。paradigm (n.) 慣例,行為/思考模式。例:cultural paradigm (文化模式)。talk someone out of… 說服某人改變、放棄某事。例:He was trying to talk Lucy out of her decision. (他試圖說服露西改變她的決定。)
