头像是奥德•温盖特(Orde Wingate)将军

Orde Charles Wingate was a complex figue with revolutionary ideas and an unshakeable faith in himself as great military strategist and soldier of the Lord. He was tireless, albe to drive himself beyond endurance. Perhaps his chief fault lay in his inability to understand that most men are not like that.

He expected others to live and work by his standards.

There was my craving to be liked--so strong and nervous that never could I open myself friendly to another. The terror of failure in an effort so important made me shrink form trying; besides, there was the standard; for intimacy seemed shameful unless the other could make the perfect reply, in the same language, after the same method, for the same reasons.
There was a craving to be famous; and a horror of being known to like being known. Contempt for my passion for distinction made me refuse every offered honour.

“真正的考古学家是天生的,而非后天培养的。有时体弱多病或性格羞怯会令一个男孩子变得很不合群,却有助于他潜心研究那些久已被人们忘却的事情;但最关键的是他必须天生有某种特质,对过去比对现在更好奇,喜欢刨根问底,重过程而不重结果。”......有这样特质的人也许永远生活在过去,永远生活在别处。

History repeats itself; historians repeat each other.

我们生活在一个平庸、浅薄、浮躁、荒诞的时代。

I was also interested in the human dilemma between going and staying, a theme which Denys's story seemed to throw into relief. It was the age-old choice between four walls and the open road, security and freedom, or as Karen Blixen put it, the lion hunt and bathing the baby; a dilemma that dogged my own life for many years.

Goodbye to all that

Life is a Series of farewells.

Tolerance, always tolerance.

Reading, translating, to recapture the peace of mind.

We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

是无等等

Life is like a dream.

人生短暂,书海无涯。

Where can we hide in fair weather, we orphans of the storm?

True heroism is inseparably associated with self-sacrifice.

The Stronghold is a machan overlooking a kid tied up to entice the Japanese tiger.

The ways of God are strange.

Prisoners of hope

“The day is wasted on which we have not laughed.”
“Well, we haven’t wasted many days, have we?”

真相是如此宝贵,必须用各种墙加以保护。

这世上最可希冀的,是平静的生活。——腓特烈大帝

The best soldiers were those with the most limited view, those who could be patient with the small world of army life. ——Siegfried Sassoon

毛姆坐在书房抽雪茄皱起眉头说他看书看老了也看累了,远远瞄着一排排的书脊只想偷笑:“都安好,心里踏实!”

他精神上最好的避难所还是书本:它们既不会忘了他,也不会欺骗他。  ——《约翰克里斯朵夫》

No feast lasts forever.

世上没有幸福,但有自由和宁静。——普希金

Patriotism is not enough. —— Edith Cavell

凡是写在书上的,他都觉得有趣,而凡是实际生活的事则漠不关心。

All comedy, is tragedy, if you only look deep enough into it. ——Thomas Hardy

Life was, indeed, a circle game.

The only thing new in the world is the history we don't know.——Harry Truman

安心地传播可兰吧,但不要对不信神的人。——普希金

The race is not to the swift.

And by the time I had nothing left, I myself was the lightest thing of all, for fate to get rid of it.

Say not the struggle naught availeth.

It's the real terror to abandon one's life and soul to something one can lose again.

T.E. Lawrence remained to the end of his life a prolific reader and a lover of books, especially contemporary English and French works, but seemed often to use reading as a way of substituting an alternative world for the one in which he was living.

Don't lose yourself in desperation.

Each man kills the thing he loves.——Oscar Wilde

你永远不可能感知这个国家里的属灵黑暗,除非你亲临其境。

A generous and elevated mind is distinguished by nothing more certainly than an eminent degree of curiosity; nor is that curiosity ever more agreeably or usefully employed, than in examining the laws and customs of foreign nations.

Guerrillas do not march home to victory parades.

A firm and clear character is far more important than the correct conviction. The former is recognizable and can be included in the equation. Convictions cannot......For us in the military conviction was immaterial, but character was everything. ——Hermann Balck
