1.      A gentleman is one who never swears at his wife while ladies are present. Anon. 绅士就是有女士在场时从不对妻子爆粗口的人。

2.      A true gentleman is a man who knows how to play bagpipes—but doesn’t. Anon. 真正的绅士是知道风笛如何吹却不吹的人。

3.      German is the most extravagantly ugly language. It sounds like someone using sick-bag on a 747. William Rushton, 1937-96, English cartoonist an satirist, Holiay Inn, Ghent, 1984 德语是最过分丑陋的语言。它听起来像是有人在波音747上使用晕机袋。

4.      Whenever the literary German dives into a sentence, that is the last you are going to see of him till he emerges on the other side his Atlantic with his verb in his mouth. Mark Twain, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, 1889 每当德国的文人跳水似地一头钻进句子里去,你就别想见到他了,一直要等他从大西洋的那一边再冒出来,嘴里衔着他的动词。(余光中译)

5.      The worst gift is a fruitcake. There is only one fruitcake in the entire worl, and people keep sending it to each other. Johnny Carson, American chat-show host 最糟的礼物是果糕。整个世界就一个果糕,人们不停地送来送去。

6.      Is man one of God’s blunders or is God one of man’s blunders? F. W. Nietzsche, 1844-1900, German philosopher 人是上帝的一大错误,或者上帝是人的一大错误?

7.      A 70 year old millionaire had just married a beautiful blonde 20 year old. ‘You crafty old codger,’ said an envious friend. ‘How on earth did you get such a lovely young woman to marry you?’ ‘Easy,’ said the millionaire, ‘I told her I was 95.’ Anon. 一个70岁的百万富翁刚刚与一个20岁的漂亮的金发女郎结婚。“你这狡猾的怪老头,”他的一个朋友嫉妒地说,“你究竟是怎么让这么可爱的年轻女郎与你结婚的?”“简单,”富翁说,“我告诉她我95了。”

8.      Give me my golf clubs, fresh air and a beautiful partner, and you can keep my golf clubs and the fresh air. Jack Benny, 1894-1974, American actor and comeian 如果你把我的高尔夫球杆、新鲜空气和一个漂亮的搭档给我,那么,你可以把我的高尔夫球杆和新鲜空气留下。

9.      The Coarse Golfer: one who has to shout ‘Fore’ when he putts. Michael Green, The Art of Coarse Golf, 1967 粗鲁的高尔夫球手:轻轻一击即可入洞时还要大喊“前面注意了”的一个人。

10.   ERIC: My wife says if I don’t give up golf, she’ll leave me. ERNIE: That’s terrible. ERIC: I know—I’m really going to miss her. Eric Morecambe an Ernie Wise, The Morecambe and Wise Joke Book, 1979 埃里克:我妻子说我要是再打高尔夫她就离开我。埃尔尼:那太糟糕了。埃里克:是的——我真的会想她的。

11.   Golf is a good walk spoiled. Mark Twain, 1835-1910, American humorist 高尔夫是一次极好的散步被糟蹋了。
