                           普鲁斯特这样回答(中)

 

Seven years after the first questionnaire, Proust was asked, at another social event, to fill out another; the questions are much the same, but the answers somewhat different, indicative of his traits at 20:

*Your most marked characteristic? A craving to be loved, or, to be more precise, to be caressed and spoiled rather than to be admired 你最显著的性格特征?——对爱的渴望,更准确地说,被爱抚与宠溺多于被赞赏。
*The quality you most like in a man? Feminine charm
你最喜欢的男人的品质?——阴柔的吸引力。
*The quality you most like in a woman? A man's virtues, and frankness in friendship
你最喜欢的女人的品质?——具有男人的美德,在友谊中坦率直白。
*What do you most value in your friends? Tenderness - provided they possess a physical charm which makes their tenderness worth having
你最看重朋友的哪一点?——敏感——倘若他们对我具有某种身体上的吸引力,那他们的敏感就是我需要的。

*What is your principle defect? Lack of understanding; weakness of will 你的最大过失是什么?——缺乏理解力,意志薄弱。
*What is your favorite occupation? Loving
什么是你最爱的职业?——去爱
*What is your dream of happiness? Not, I fear, a very elevated one. I really haven't the courage to say what it is, and if I did I should probably destroy it by the mere fact of putting it into words.
你理想的快乐是什么?——不,我敬畏,那种严肃的欢欣。我真的没有勇气来说明那是什么,一旦我把它诉诸语言,我也许就会毁坏它了。
*What to your mind would be the greatest of misfortunes? Never to have known my mother or my grandmother
在你心目中何事将是最大的不幸?——从不曾见过我的母亲与我的祖母。
*What would you like to be? Myself - as those whom I admire would like me to be
你会想成为什么?——我自己——就如那些我赞尚的人希望我成为的那种人。
*In what country would you like to live? One where certain things that I want would be realized - _and where feelings of tenderness would always be reciprocated_. [Proust's underlining]
你想生活在怎样的国家?——一个能让我对某些事确定不疑的国家,在那里,敏感温柔的思绪总是可以得到回应。(大哭,再次想起他的小说)
*What is your favorite color? Beauty lies not in colors but in thier harmony
你最爱的颜色是——美,并不单纯的存在于某种色彩里,它存在于色彩的和谐之中。
*What is your favorite flower? Hers - but apart from that, all
什么是你最爱的花儿?——她的——除此之外,所有的
