麦田里的守望者

The more expensive a school is, the more crooks it has.
学校越贵,小偷越多。

I don’t like to see old guys in their pajamas and bathrobes anyway. Their bumpy old chests are always showing.
我不喜欢看见那些老家伙穿着睡衣套着浴巾,他们坑坑洼洼的胸膛老是露出来。

He also started picking his nose. He made out like he was only pinching it, but he was really getting the old thumb right in there.
他开始抠鼻孔。他搞的好像他只是在掐鼻子似的,但他实际上把大拇指伸进里边去了。

Where I have my hand on your back, if I think there isn’t anything underneath my hand- no can, no legs, no feet, no anything- then the girls’ really a terrific dancer.
如果我把手放在你的后背上,我觉得我手下面什么都没有——没屁股,没腿,没脚,什么都没有——那你就是伟大的舞蹈家了。

A woman’s body is like a violin and all, and that it takes a terrific musician to play it right.
女人的身体就像一个小提琴什么的,得有个出色的音乐家来演奏才行。

For instance, if you’re at a girl’s house, her parents always come home at the wrong time—or you’re afraid they will.
比如说,你在一个女孩家里,她爸妈回来的时间就老不对——或者你会对这一点总是担惊受怕。

If somebody knows quite a lot about those things, it takes you quite a while to find out whether they’re really stupid or not.
如果一个人对这些事情懂挺多,你要发现他是不是蠢蛋还得花点时间。

If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she’s late?
如果一个漂亮女孩来见你,谁他妈关心她迟没迟到?

These intellectual guys don’t like to have an intellectual conversation with you unless they’re running the whole thing.
除非他们自己掌控局面,这些高智商的人都不想跟你进行高智商对话。

I didn’t have anything else to do, so I kept sitting on the radiator and counting these little white squares on the floor.
我没别的事做,就继续坐在暖气上数地上的小白格子。

I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around—nobody big, I mean, except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff—I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out somewhere and catch them. That’s all I’d do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be. I know it’s crazy.
我一直在脑子里想像很多小孩在麦田地什么的玩游戏。有几千个小孩,没别的—没别的大人,我是说,除我之外。我就站在这破悬崖边上,我要做的,就是抓住每一个跑向悬崖的孩子——我是说他们不看方向的话,我就得从哪出来把他们抓住。我就整天干这种事。我就当个麦田守望者得了吧。我知道这很疯,但这是唯一一件我想做的事了。我知道这很疯。

People are mostly hot to have a discussion when you’re not.
当你无精打采的时候,人们总是会说到兴头上。

“I thought the carrousel was closed in the wintertime,” old phoebe said. It was the first time she practically said anything. She probably forgot she was supposed to be sore at me.
“Maybe because it’s around Christmas,” I said.
She didn’t say anything when I said that. She probably remembered she was supposed to be sore at me.

“我以为旋转木马在冬天就不开了呢,”菲比丫头说。这是她第一次真正对我说点话。她大概忘了她在生我的气。
“可能是因为圣诞快到了吧。”我说。
她不说话了。她大概记起来她在生我的气了。

I thought what I’d do was, I’d pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn’t have to have any goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody. If anybody wanted to tell me something, they’d have to write it on a piece of paper and shove it over me…I’d build me a little cabin somewhere with the dough I made and live there for the rest of my life… I’d have this rule that nobody could do anything phony when they visited me. If anybody tried to do anything phony, they couldn’t stay.
我觉得我要做的是,我要假装是聋哑人。这样的话我就不用跟别人进行什么破对话了。如果别人想告诉我点事,他们就得写在一张纸上给我……我要赚钱建一个自己的小木屋,余生就在那度过……我要定个规矩,谁都不能在这做什么虚伪的事,谁要做谁就滚。

It’s full of phonies, and all you do is study so that you can learn enough to be smart enough to be able to buy a goddam Cadillac some day, and you have to keep making believe you give a damn if the football team loses, and all you do is talk about girls and liquor and sex all day, and everybody sticks together in these dirty little goddam cliques.
学校里全是伪君子,你要做的就是好好学习学有所成之后买辆他妈的凯迪拉克。然后他们让你觉得足球队输了你得表示伤心,你要做的就是整天聊女孩,酒还有性。每个人都在肮脏的小范围里天天混在一起。

I’m always saying “Glad to’ve met you” to somebody I’m not at all glad I met.
我经常要对别人说“很高兴见到你”,尽管我见到他们根本不高兴。

Some people you shouldn’t kid, even if they deserve it.
有些人是开不得玩笑的,尽管他们活该。

What I like best is a book that’s at least funny once in a while… What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.
我最喜欢的是一本书里起码有让你觉得有趣的东西……让我真正喜欢的书是这种,当你读完,你希望这作者是你一个很要好的朋友,如果你想,你可以随时给他打电话。

Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.
千万不要告诉任何人任何事情。如果你这样做,你会失去所有人。
