李安大热电影《Life of Pie少年派的奇幻漂流》经典台词(双语)

All of life is an act of letting go,but what hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye...
人生就是一场不断分离和告别的游戏,但是最伤人的事却是不给我们时间却说再见....
(台词剖析:热爱身边人们,珍惜当下生活,相信光明与美好,无论曾从怎样的污秽和黑暗中走来。)

If every unfolding we experience takes us further along in life, then, we are truly experiencing what life is offering...
如果我们在人生中体验的每一次转变都让我们在生活中走得更远,那么,我们就真正的体验到了生活想让我们体验的东西。
(台词剖析:我们的人生是由我们的经历构成,每一个不同都在丰富自己的人生,尽管不能像派那样有那样惊天动地的冒险旅程。)

Religion is a house with many rooms.
宗教就是一套有许多房间的房子。

I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unerring ease. It begins in your mind, always.   
这里必须说说恐惧,它是生活惟一真正的对手,因为只有恐惧才能打败生活。我非常清楚地知道,恐惧是狡黠危险的敌人,它不懂情理,无视法规,也毫不留情;它轻轻松松毫无差错就能找到并攻击你的软肋。恐惧永远都源自你的内心。

The animal in front of you must know where it stands, whether above you or below you. Social rank is central to how it leads its life. Rank determines whom it can associate with and how; where and when it can eat; where it can rest; where it can drink; and so on. Until it knows its rank for certain, the animal lives a life of unbearable anarchy. It remains nervous, jumpy, and dangerous. Luckily for the circus trainer, decisions about social rank among higher animals are not always based on brute force. 
动物在你面前时它必须知道自己的地位是高于你还是低于你,它所过的生活取决于它的社会级别。这个级别决定了它会与谁为伴、以何种方式交往、何时何地可以进食,何处可以休息和饮水等等。没有确定自己的级别之前,它的生活会混乱不堪,它会一直紧张、躁动并充满威胁。好在对马戏团的驯兽员来说,更高等动物之间的社会级别并不总是以兽性的强力决定。

I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life.
我必须得说一个词,那就是恐惧----人生唯一的敌手,唯有恐惧能击败人生。
(所以人必须战胜恐惧)

李安谈《少年派的奇幻漂流》:

I would like people to get surprised about my work, instead of it being over-hyped. That’s what I’d be more comfortable with. But it’s a big picture. I have to go with the flow.
我宁愿人们对我的作品感到惊喜,而不愿我的作品被大肆吹捧。这是我更习惯的方式。但是,这是大片,我不得不随大流。

《少年派的奇幻漂流》作者在书籍开篇的话:

If we citizens do not support our artists, then we sacrifice our imagination on the altar of crude reality and we end up believing in nothing and having worthless dreams.
如果老百姓不支持艺术家,那么艺术家只能在残酷的现实面前牺牲自己的想象力,于是到最后,我们什么都不相信,也没有什么有价值的梦想了。
