1.     No country home is complete without a surly figure seated in the kitchen like Rodin’s thinker, wishing she was back in a hot little room under the Third Avenue Elevated. S. J. Perelman, Acres and pains, 1947

      哪个乡村房子要是没有一个面色阴沉的女人以罗丹的《思想家》姿势坐在厨房里,幻想着自己回到了第三大道高架线下面酷热的小屋,那就不算是一个完整的家。

2.      It is pure unadulterated country life. They get up early because they have so much to do and go to bed early because they have so little to think about. Oscar Wilde, The Pcture of Dorian Gray, 1891

      那是纯粹地道的乡村生活。他们起得很早,因为他们要做的活太多了;他们睡得也很早,因为他们要思虑事情太少了。

3.     If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, it’s just possible you haven’t grasped the situation. Jean Kerr, Please Don’t Eat the Daisies, 1957

      要是你周围的人都失去理智而你能保持头脑清醒,很可能是你没有弄清局势。

4.     A: You’ve been seeing my daughter Nellie for nearly a year now. What are your intentions — honorable or dishonorable? B: You mean I’ve got a choice? Harry Hershfield, 1875-1974, American cartoonist and cartoonist  

   A:你与我女儿约会快有一年了。你有什么打算——高尚的或不高尚的?B:你是说我可以选择?

5.     The hardest task in a girl’s life is to prove to a man that his intentions are serious. Helen Rowland, Reflections of a Bachelor Girl, 1903 

      一个女孩一生中最难完成的任务,就是向一个男的证明他的意图是认真的。

6.     It is assumed that the woman must wait, motionless, until she is wooed. That is how the spider waits for the fly. George Bernard Shaw, 1856-1950, Irish playwright (Attrib.)

      人们都认为女人必须等待,静静地等着他人来追求。蜘蛛就是这样等飞虫的。

7.     My sole inspiration is a telephone call from a producer. Cole Porter, 1891-1964, songwriter, in interview, 1955

      我唯一的灵感源泉是制片人打来的电话。

8.     No man’s credit is as good as his money. Edgar Watson Howe, 1863-1937, American novelist and newspaper editor

    谁的信用都好不过他的钱。

9.      My motto is ‘Veni, Vidi, Visa’—We came, we saw, we went shopping. Sally Poplin, English humorist

      我的座右铭是“Veni, Vidi, Visa”——我们来,我们见,我们购物。

10.   He had been kicked in the head when young and believ ed everything he read in the Sunday papers. George Ade, The America of George Ade, 1962

      他年青时头曾踢过,周日报上读到的东西他都信。
