1.      Golf is a game in which a ball (one and a half inches in diameter) is placed on a ball (eight thousand miles in diameter). The object being to hit the small ball but not the bigger. John Cunningham

     高尔夫是小球(直径1.5英寸)放在大球(直径8000英里)上的一种运动。目标是打小球,不是打大的。

2.      I know I’m getting better at golf because I’m hitting fewer spectators. Gerald Ford, 1913-2006,38th President of the United States

     我知道我打高尔夫的水平在提高,因为我击中观众的次数少了。

3.      You know why they call it golf, don’t you? Because all the good four-letter words were already taken. Lewis Grizzard, 1946-94, American humorist

     你知道他们为什么称它为golf,对吗?因为四个字母的好词全被用光了。

4.      You don’t know what pressure is in golf until you play for five bucks with only two in your pocket. Lee Trevino, Mexican-American golfer 

   你终于知道打高尔夫的压力了,你想打五块钱的,口袋里只有两块。

5.      Nice guys finish last. Leo Durocher, 1905-91, baseball coach 好人最后。

6.      The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by steelth, and to have it found out by accident. Charles Lamb, ‘Table Talk by the Late Elia’, The Athenaeum, 1834

  我所知道的最大快乐就是偷偷地做件好事,让人无意中发现。

7.      few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example. Mark twain, Pudd’nhead Wilson, 1894

  很少有事情,其难以忍受的程度能超过对好榜样的厌烦。

8.      If all the good people were clever, / And all clever people were good,/ The world would be nicer than ever /We thought that it possibly could./ But somehow, ‘tis seldom or never/ The two hit it off as they should;/ The good are are so harsh to the clever,/ The clever so rude to the good! Elizabeth Wordsworth, ‘Good and Clever’.

  若是善良者都聪明/聪明者都善良/世界将更美好/我们以为或许能行/然而两者不知为何/难得甚至绝不相容/善良者待聪明人太苛/聪明人待善良者粗鲁。

9.      The things most people want to know about are usually none of their business. George Bernard Shaw, 1856-1950, Irish playwright 

  大多数人想知道的事情通常都与己无关。

10.   There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about. Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1891 

  世上只有一件事情比被人议论更糟糕,那就是不被人议论。
