That all great art has this power of suggesting a world beyond is undeniable.

所有伟大的艺术都认为超越世界的力量是不可否认的。


In some moods Nature shares it.

在某些环境中我们要与大自然共同承担这种力量。


There is no sky in June so blue that it does not point forward to a bluer, no sunset so beautiful that is does not waken the vision of a greater beauty, a vision which passes before it is fully glimpsed, and it passing leaves an indefinable longing and regret.

六月的天空如此蔚蓝不必追求更湛蓝的天空,落日如此之美无需展开更美的想像,在我们完全看见一个快要消失的景象及它消失之后留下了一种对再次见到这种美好景象难以表达的渴望和遗憾。


But, if this world is not merely a bad joke, life a vulgar flare amid the cool radiance of the stars, and existence an empty laugh braying across the mysteries: if these intimations of something behind and beyond are not evil humour born of indigestion, or whimsies sent by the devil to mock and madden us; if, in a word, beauty means something, yet we must not seek to interpret the meaning.

但是,如果这个世界不只是一个恶作剧,人生也不只是群星寒光中平凡的一点闪光,也存在着在不可思议的事情上发出空洞的笑声:如果超越了这些暗示,邪恶的幽默不会让人感到消化不良,或者异想天开用恶魔来嘲笑和让我们生气。简而言之,如果说美丽意味着某些东西,那么我们不必去探索对这个意义的解释。


If we glimpse the unutterable, it is unwise to try to utter it, nor should we seek to invest with significance that which we cannot grasp.

如果我们认为是难以言表的事情,那么试图说出来是非常不明智的,也不应该寻求在我们无法理解的事情上投入精力。


Beauty in terms of our human meaning is meaningless.

就我们人类而言,美丽是毫无意义的。
