Immortal Books

不朽的書

Books possess an essence of immortality. They are by far the most lasting products of human effort. Temples and statues decay, but books survive. Time is of no account with great thoughts, which are as fresh today as when they first passed through their author's minds, ages ago. What was then said and thought still speaks to us as vividly as ever from the printed page. The only effect of time has been to sift out the bad products; for nothing in literature can long survive but what is really good.

書具有不朽的本質。在人類的勞動成果中,書保留的時間最長久。廟宇塑像會坍塌,但書會留存下來。偉大的思想不隨時間的流逝而過時,今天依然鮮活,就像幾個世紀前在作者的腦海中閃現時一樣。當時的話語和思想,透過印刷的書頁,向我們娓娓道來,生動如初。時間的唯一作用就是過濾低劣的書,因為只有優秀的作品才具有長久的生命力。

Books introduce us the best society; they bring us into the presence of the greatest minds that have ever lived. We hear what they said and did; we see them as if they were really alive; we sympathize with them, enjoy with them, grieve with them; their experience becomes ours, and we feel as if we were in a measure actors with them in the scenes which they describe.

書向我們介紹最好的社會,帶領我們認識偉大的智者。我們能聽見他們說的話,知曉他們做的事,宛若他們的生命仍然鮮活。我們與他們一同憐憫,一同享受,一同悲傷;對他們的經歷感同身受,仿佛自己置身于他們所描述的場景中。

The great and good do not die even in this world. Embalmed in books, their spirits walk abroad. The book is a living voice. It is an intellect to which one still listens. Hence we ever remain under the influence of the great men of old. The imperial intellects of the world are as much alive now as they were ages ago.

在這個世界上,偉大的東西和美好的東西不會消亡。他們的精神鐫刻在書中永存,世代流傳。書是活著的聲音,人們依然能夠聆聽其教誨。所以,我們始終受著古代偉人的影響。卓越的智慧,一如從前,今天依舊閃耀著光芒,照亮人類社會的進程。

by Samuel Smiles
