    何為不朽

    To see the golden sun, the azure sky, the outstretched ocean; to walk upon the green earth, and be lord of a thousand creatures ; to look down yawning precipices or over distant sunny vales; to see the world spread out under one's feet on a map ; to bring the stars near; to view the smallest insects through a microscope; to read history, and consider the revolutions of empire and the successions of generations; to hear the glory of Tyre, of Sidon, of Babylon, and of Susa, and to say all these were before me and are now nothing; to say I exist in such a point of time, and in such a point of space; to be a spectator and a part of its evermoving scene; to witness the change of seasons, of spring and autumn, of winter and summer; and to feel hot and cold, pleasure and pain, beauty and deformity, right and wrong; to be sensible to the accidents of Nature; to consider the mighty world of eye and ear; to listen to the stock-dove's notes amid the forest deep ; to journey over moor and mountain; to hear the midnight sainted choir; to visit lighted halls,or the cathedral's gloom, or sit in crowded theatres and see life itself mocked ; to study the works of art and refine the sense of beauty to agony; to worship fame, and to dream of immortality; to look upon the Vatican, and to read Shakespeare; to gather up the wisdom of the ancients, and to pry into the future; to listen to the trump of war, and the shout of victory; to question history as to the movements of the human heart; to seek for truth; to plead the cause of humanity; to overlook the world as if time and Nature poured their treasures at our feet — to be and to do all this and then in a moment to be as nothing — to have it ail snatched from us as by a juggler's trick, or a phantasmagoria!

    我們看到金色的太陽,蔚藍的天空,廣闊的海洋;我們漫步在綠油油的大地之上,做萬物的主人;我們俯視令人目眩心悸的懸崖峭壁,遠眺鮮花盛開的山谷;我們在地圖上指點世界江山;我們把星辰移到眼前觀看,在顯微鏡下觀察極其微小的生物;我們學習歷史,研考帝國的興亡、時代的交替;我們聽人談論推羅、西頓、巴比倫和蘇撒的豐功偉績,然后說:這些事確實發生過,但現在卻是過眼云煙了;我們思考著自己生活在這樣的一個時代、生活在宇宙間這樣的一個角落;在人生的活動舞臺上,我們既當觀眾、又當演員;我們觀察四季更迭、春秋代序、冬夏交替;感受炎熱寒冷、歡樂痛苦、美麗殘缺和是非對錯;敏銳地感知大自然的變遷,用眼和耳去認知這個浩蕩的宇宙;聆聽野鴿在濃密的樹林中哀訴;翻越荒野峻嶺;傾聽午夜圣詩的合唱;拜訪那燈火輝煌的禮堂和幽靜肅穆的大教堂,或坐在人頭攢動的劇院里,觀看生活本身受到的模仿嘲弄;我們鉆研藝術作品,把自己的美感升華為凄美;我們崇拜榮譽,夢想不朽;觀望梵蒂岡,賞閱莎士比亞;集聚古人的智慧以知未來;傾聽戰爭的號角和勝利的吶喊;質疑歷史如同考究人心的運作;尋求真理;思辯人性;俯瞰世界,有如時空萬靈將其寶物盡都傾于腳前一正當我們面臨這一切、從事這一切的時候,自己卻在一剎那之間化為虛無,眼前的一切,像是魔術師的把戲,像是一場幻影,一下子全都消失得無影無蹤!
