入睡美文(18)我为何而活(1)

What I Have Lived For

我为何而活

节选自《罗素自传》序言

Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. These passions, like great winds, have blown me hither and thither, in a wayward course, over a deep ocean of anguish, reaching to the verge of despair.

对爱情的渴望,对知识的追求,对人类苦难不可遏制的同情心,这三种纯洁而无比强烈的激情支配着我的一生。这三种激情,就像飓风一样,在深深的苦海上,肆意地把我吹来吹去,吹到濒临绝望的边缘。

I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy — ecstasy so great that I would have sacrificed all the rest of life for a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, next, because it relieves loneliness — that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness looks over the rim of the world into cold unfathomable lifeless abyss. I have sought it, finally, because in the union of love I have seen, in a mystic miniature, the prefiguring vision of the heaven that saints and poets have imagined. This is what I sought, and though it might seem too good for human life, this is what — at last — I have found.

我寻求爱情,首先因为爱情给我带来狂喜,它如此强烈以致我经常愿意为了几小时的欢愉而牺牲生命中的其他一切。我寻求爱情,其次是因为爱情可以解除孤寂一-那是一颗震颤的心,在世界的边缘,俯瞰那冰冷死寂、深不可测的深渊。我寻求爱情,最后是因为在爱情的结合中,我看到圣徒和诗人们所想像的天堂景象的神秘缩影。这就是我所寻求的,虽然它对人生似乎过于美好,然而最终我还是得到了它。
