我曾七次鄙视自己的灵魂

纪伯伦

我曾七次鄙视自己的灵魂纪伯伦
第一次当它本可进取时,却故作谦卑
第二次当它空虚时,用爱欲来填充
第三次在困难和容易之间,它选择了容易
第四次它犯了错,却借由别人也会犯错来宽慰自己
第五次它自由软弱,却把它认为是生命的坚韧
第六次当它鄙夷一张丑恶的嘴脸时,却不知那正是自己面具中的一副
第七次它侧身于生活的污泥中虽不甘心,却又畏首畏尾


Seven Times Have I Despised My Soul

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

The first time when I saw her being meek that she might attain height.
The second time when I saw her limping before the crippled.
The third time when she was given to choose between the hard and the easy, and she chose the easy.
The fourth time when she committed a wrong, and comforted herself that others also commit wrong.
The fifth time when she forbore for weakness, and attributed her patience to strength.
The sixth time when she despised the ugliness of a face, and knew not that it was one of her own masks.
And the seventh time when she sang a song of praise, and deemed it a virtue.
