《哈利波特》作者JK.罗琳的经典英语名言(双语)

JK罗琳.jpg

There is an expiry date on blaming your parents for steering you in the wrong direction; the moment you are old enough to take the wheel, responsibility lies with you.
埋怨父母给你指错方向是有一个时间段的。当你成长到可以控制自我方向的时候,你就要自己承担责任了。

Poverty entails fear, and stress, and sometimes depression; it means a thousand petty humiliations and hardships. Climbing out of poverty by your own efforts, that is indeed something on which to pride yourself, but poverty itself is romanticised only by fools.
贫穷并不是一种高贵的经历,它带来恐惧、压力、有时还有绝望,它意味着许许多多的羞辱和艰辛。靠自己的努力摆脱贫穷,确实可以引以自豪,但贫穷本身只有对傻瓜而言才是浪漫的。

The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive.
从挫折中获得智慧、变得坚强,意味着你比以往任何时候都更有能力生存。

You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more to me than any qualification I ever earned.
只有在逆境来临的时候,你才会真正认识你自己,了解身边的人。这种了解是真正的财富,虽然是用痛苦换来的,但比我以前得到的任何资格证书都有用。

Personal happiness lies in knowing that life is not a check-list of acquisition or achievement.
人的幸福在于知道生活不是一份漂亮的成绩单。

We do not need magic to transform the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.
我们不需要改变世界的魔法,我们自己的内心就有这种力量:那就是我们一直在梦想,让这个世界变得更美好。
