—— 托马斯·默顿(Thomas Merton,1915-1968),美国作家及天主教特拉普派修道士。

What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it, all the rest are not only useless, but disastrous.
如果我们不能跨越分隔我们和我们自己的深渊,那么即使航行到月球又能得到什么呢? 这是才是所有发现之旅中最重要的旅行,如果没有它,其他所有的发现不仅毫无用处,而且是灾难性的。

We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have - for their usefulness.
我们如此忙于做事情,以至于我们没有剩余的时间和想象力来提升自己的心灵。结果,衡量人们的价值不是因为他们是什么,而是因为他们做了什么或他们拥有什么——是因为他们的有用性。

In the last analysis, the individual person is responsible for living his own life and for 'finding himself.' If he persists in shifting his responsibility to somebody else, he fails to find out the meaning of his own existence.
归根结底,每个人都有责任过自己的生活,有责任“发现自己”。如果他坚持把自己的责任转移给别人,他就无法找到自己存在的意义。

If you want to study the social and political history of modern nations, study hell.
如果你想研究现代国家的社会和政治历史,去研究地狱吧。

We must make the choices that enable us to fulfill the deepest capacities of our real selves.
我们必须做出选择,使我们能够发挥最深层的真实自我的能力。

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
艺术让我们发现自我的同时也让我们迷失自我。
