You, Mr. Gray, you yourself, with your rose-red youth and your rose-white boyhood, you have had passions that have made you afraid, thoughts that have filled you with terror, day-dreams and sleeping dreams whose mere memory might stain your cheek with shame--"
“你,格雷先生,就是你。在你那红玫瑰一样夺目的青年时期和白玫瑰一样纯洁的少年时期,你一定有过使你感到畏惧的激情和念头,还有那些光是回忆起来都会让你羞愧不已的梦境。“
"Stop!" faltered Dorian Gray, "stop! you bewilder me. I don't know what to say. There is some answer to you, but I cannot find it. Don't speak. Let me think. Or, rather, let me try not to think."
“等等”道尔格雷突然结巴了起来。“等等,我被你绕晕了。我都不知道该说什么了。我明明想跟你说什么来着,但是我想不起来了。不要说话,让我想想。或者让我停止思考。”
For nearly ten minutes he stood there, motionless, with parted lips and eyes strangely bright. He was dimly conscious that entirely fresh influences were at work within him. Yet they seemed to him to have come really from himself. The few words that Basil's friend had said to him--words spoken by chance, no doubt, and with wilful paradox in them-- had touched some secret chord that had never been touched before, but that he felt was now vibrating and throbbing to curious pulses.
他就这样在那儿站了差不多十分钟,一动不动,嘴巴半开着,眼睛却异常的明亮。他隐约地意识到他正受到某种影响,那是一种他从未感受过的全新的感觉,但他又觉得,那影响仿佛来自他自身。巴兹尔的朋友对他说的话,带着故意的矛盾性在其中,那无疑是无意间说出的,却触动了他内心深处的某根弦,那之前从未被拨动过,但现在他感觉到它正以一种奇特的频率在震动着。
Music had stirred him like that. Music had troubled him many times. But music was not articulate. It was not a new world, but rather another chaos, that it created in us. Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?
音乐也曾经给过他这样的触动,也曾屡次使他这样困扰。但是音乐从不曾这样生动。音乐并没有创造出一个新世界,只是在我们心中形成另一个混乱。 语言,只有语言。他们是多么的美妙啊。如此清晰,如此生动,又是如此残酷。人是无法不受其影响的。而且语言本身又蕴含着如此奇妙的魔力,仿佛能够化虚为实,能够像乐器般奏出美妙的旋律。只有语言!世界上还有其他东西能够像语言这般生动形象吗?”
