Man's Youth
青春
Man's youth is a wonderful thing: it is so full of anguish and of magic and he never comes to know it as it is, until it has gone from him forever. It is the thing he cannot bear to lose, it is the thing whose passing he watches with infinite sorrow and regret, it is the thing whose loss he must lament forever, and it is the thing whose loss he really welcomes with a sad and secret joy, the thing he would never willingly relive again, if it could be restored to him by any magic.
青春奇妙無窮,充滿魅力,充滿痛楚。青春年少的時候根本不知青春為何物,直到青春一去不復返了才對青春有了真正的認識。誰都想讓青春永駐,不忍青春離去;眼睜睜地看著青春流逝,心中會涌起無窮的憂傷和惋惜;青春的失去是人們永遠感到悲哀的事;青春的失去是人們真正覺得悲喜交集的事;即便奇跡出現青春復蘇,誰也不會心甘情愿重度青春的歲月。

Why is this? The reason is that the strange and bitter miracle of life is nowhere else so evident as in our youth. And what is the essence of that strange and bitter miracle of life which we feel so poignantly, so unutterably, with such a bitter pain and joy, when we are young? It is this:that being rich, we are so poor; that being mighty, we can yet have nothing; that seeing, breathing, smelling, tasting all around us the wealth and glory of this earth, feeling with an intolerable certitude that the whole structure of the enchanted life the most fortunate, wealthy, good, and happy life that any man has ever known is ours at once, immediately and forever, the moment that we choose to take a step, or stretch a hand we yet know that we can really keep, hold, take, and possess forever nothing. All passes; nothing lasts: the moment that we put our hand upon it, it melts away like smoke, is gone forever, and the snake is eating at our heart again; we see then what we are and what our lives must come to.
為什么如此?因為在青春時代,生活充滿了奇特而辛酸的不可思議的事。我們在青春年少時帶著悲喜交集的心情、十分強烈而不可名狀地感受到人生的奇特辛酸、不可思議的經歷。其實質是什么呢?其實質是這樣的:青春年少的時候,雖然殷實富足,卻非常貧窮;雖然力氣強大,卻一無所有;世間的富貴榮華觸目皆是,簡直可以呼吸到,聞到嗅到,還可以品嘗到,心中的自信按捺不住,深切地感受到整個被陶醉了的生活,人類迄今為止所知道的最幸運、最富有的美好幸福的生活,只要我們決定向前邁步、奮發努力,便立即歸我們所有了,并將永遠屬于我們。然而,我們知道,我們真的永遠不能抓到什么,永遠不能獲得什么,永遠不能占有什么。一切都匆匆過去,蕩然無存:我們一出手它就煙消云散,飄然而逝,一去不復返了。于是,心中泛起陣陣隱痛,看到了自己真實的面孔,看到自己未來生活的必然走向。

A young man is so strong, so mad, so certain, and so lost. He has everything and he is able to use nothing. He hurls the great shoulder of his strength forever against phantasmal barriers, he is a wave whose power explodes in lost mid oceans under timeless skies, he reaches out to grip a fume of painted smoke; he wants all, feels the thirst and power for everything, and finally gets nothing. In the end, he is destroyed by his own strength, devoured by his own hunger, impoverished by his own wealth. Thoughtless of money or the accumulation of material possessions, he is none the less defeated in the end by his own greed.
青年人非常堅強,狂熱自信,但容易迷惘混沌;雖然機緣無數,卻把握不住;雖然身強體壯,試圖沖破重重虛幻的屏障,卻如同一個波浪,最終還是無力地消失在曠遠浩渺的大海中央;他伸出手想要抓住斑斕的云煙;他想得到世間的萬物,渴望主宰一切,最終卻是一無所獲。最后,他被自己的力量所毀滅,被自己的饑餓所吞食,被自己的財富弄得貧窮潦倒。他對金錢或財富的積累不以為意漫不經心,然而最終還是被自己的貪欲所吞噬。
And that is the reason why, when youth is gone, every man will look back upon that period of his life with infinite sorrow and regret. It is the bitter sorrow and regret of a man who knows that once he had a great talent and wasted it, of a man who knows that once he had a great treasure and got nothing from it, of a man who knows that he had strength enough for everything and never used it.
青春消逝,驀然回首,無論是誰,心中都會充滿無盡的憂傷,充滿無窮的懊悔:曾經才智卓越,卻白白浪費了;曾經財寶富足,卻一無所有;曾經本事高強,卻從未利用。一個認識到自己失落青春的人回憶起來總是充滿悲傷和懊悔。
